Ok, I am pretty new. I did some homeschooling with my son (5) last year and used KONOS. He loved it and I enjoyed it but it was labor-intensive as well. I want to focus in more on CM educating but would like to use KONOS to fill in some areas. Do any of you have experience with doing that or thoughts on how it would be best to go about it?
KONOS and CM(3 posts) (3 voices)
Many years ago, I started as a KONOS mom. I was pregnant with my fifth child and my oldest was 10 when I found CM. I was so relieved! KONOS was truly exhausting me. In the dark ages;-), KONOS was three big volumes. I kept those volumes and when I switched to a very CM style, I just used the KONOS volumes to follow up on rabbit trails. If my children expressed a particular interest springing from their reading, KONOS was a ready resource for a hands-on project. Don't regret your KONOS days for a minute; I'm sure they enriched those very early years. Now, your mornings will be well structured and literature-rich and you will always be tuned in to what KONOS can bring to your afternoons.
