The Charlotte Mason Elementary Arithmetic Series

Now it’s simple to teach math with the brilliant methods that Charlotte Mason used with her students. These short , interactive, and lively lessons will take you and your child on an enjoyable journey through the mountainous land of the Principality of Mathematics, where “you cannot lose your way, and every step taken is on firm ground” (Ourselves, Book 1, p. 38).

Individual Books

“I just have to tell you, I finally ordered and used your book. My favorite thing about it was how relational it was. My math phobic actually relaxed, and my math lover giggled hysterically while we went through the lesson. He had so much fun with me in a way we don’t usually have during the school day, due to me rushing through teaching so many different ages. But as soon as I opened that book and saw what it would require of me, I knew it was going to be a relationship strengthener. Thank you for writing these books!”—Mary B.

    Excellent! I would not be doing math the Charlotte Mason way if these beautiful books were not published! They take you step-by-step and I am thrilled to have them and look forward to the rest of the series. Thank you Richele Baburina and Simply Charlotte Mason!

    I’m in love with these books! They are exactly what I had been looking for! And I can’t wait to go through them with both of my children. I will be ordering 3 and the others as soon as they are released! I really hope there are plans for books past book 5! 😊

    Absolutely perfect!
    We have struggled to find a good math program for my oldest daughter for some time. New programs usually start out well and quickly become dreaded. We have found a good place with Simply Charlotte Mason. It does take one on one time which may be the key here but the lessons are great. We had to go back and relearn a lot of different things and I look forward to moving up to book3. Just hope it comes out soon as we are almost finished with book 2.

    Wonderful, wonderful books! My oldest two boys have both loved book 1 and the 2nd grader is finishing up book 2. These are such a valuable resource to our homeschool day. They love math and feel confident in their skills, which I’m not sure would have been the case if we’d used something else. I love that we can go slowly, there is no pressure to complete pages of problems, and the lessons are mostly oral. I am eager for more!

    We LOVE this series! This is the third curriculum I tried with my sweet daughter who has trouble focusing, and this is the “ONE!” We are halfway through our second year, and she is really understanding math for the first time!!

    I have been trying out this series with “kindergarten,” 1st and 2nd graders. We’ve enjoyed the gentle, hands-on approach, but I’m concerned that book 3 will not be out by next school year. Am I right to assume I’ll need to switch my current 2nd grader to a different math program next year?

      Hi Sophia,
      Book 3 is currently in the long publication process. I have some ideas on what you can do with your student while you wait for the release of Book 3. You can repeat the same steps as you used for Larger Addition in the hundreds using a dollar in Book 2, but introduce one thousand with a ten-dollar bill (exchanging it for ten one-dollar bills) and progress to doing Larger Addition in the thousands and then Large Subtraction too. That’s where Book 3 begins.

      Another option would be to simply continue the multiplication tables for 7 through 10, using the same techniques outlined in Book 2. Those will be covered later in Book 3, but that section can easily be done out of order and then just skip/review that portion when the book comes out. I hope this will help you as you continue using Charlotte’s method.
