    I just order Living book curriculum grade 4 from the Charlotte Mason Education homeschool families and when I am on the Simply Charlotte Mason it is completely different curriculum !!! Urrrr

    I am familiar with Simply Charlotte mason and I like the books, I did one year with it and still can use some of the same book ….

    Why are those 2 sites are different if they are Charlotte Mason ? Anyone can help me ?

    Thank you

    Charlotte Mason is not a set curriculum, it is a teaching philosophy. However, various people/companies have put together their own version of a Charlotte Mason curriculum, to save the parent the hassle of trying to put together their own plans.

    Simply Charlotte Mason is a different company than Living Books Curriculum, and therefore, has very different lessons/books/approach. SCM is only one of many Charlotte Mason curriculums available.

    There is no such thing as the “real” Charlotte Mason. Charlotte Mason was a person who came up with her own teaching philosophy. You can read her original writings, available for free at Ambleside Online (another Charlotte Mason “curriculum” site) which may help give you some direction. But Charlotte never set out specific lesson plans, just thoughts on how to teach.

    These are all websites/companies that offer Charlotte Mason “curriculum”, either for free or for purchase.
