Tales 1.1: Teacher’s Guide and Lesson Plan


Please note: a special Tales 1.1 bundle, including Fairy Tales and Fables and its curriculum guide, is also available.

Tales 1.1 is a comprehensive year-long curriculum intended for home educated students in Form IB (U.K. Year 2; age 6) who are following the Charlotte Mason method of education.

Modelled upon Miss Mason’s own programme of Literature for this age, the course comprises sixty-six lessons to be taken over one full academic year of 36 weeks, and includes three end of term examinations. The students will read much loved fairy tales and fables from master storytellers Hans Christen Andersen, Aesop, The Brothers Grimm, and Charles Perrault.

This ninety-two page Teacher’s Guide and Lesson Plan is designed to be used alongside the reading of Fairy Tales and Fables, a compilation of fairy stories published exclusively by Charlotte Mason Beehive for the purpose of this course. The guide lays out each lesson step-by step and includes helpful guidance on how to teach the course, 33 weeks of copy work passages which relate to the readings each week, and lessons set aside for drawing scenes from Tales, in brushwork.

These two books are also available as part a special bundle here.
