Wattle Gum Homeschool

Learning with Australian Literature 

Seeking a Literature Based Education for your family?

I offer Australian Literature Based Resources and Curriculum, to support you in nurturing your family.

My suggestions are based on 29 years of experience homeschooling our 10 children.

We use living books as the core of our learning and are Charlotte Mason influenced.

Over the past few decades I have also assisted many families select resources and create their own curriculums.

We have personally used many of the books recommended. I am keen to share that knowledge with you.

Hi Erin! I just wanted to send you a quick message to say how much I love and appreciate the Foundation Curriculum you put together! I absolutely love it and feel so incredibly grateful for it! We have most of the term 1 books from the library and are working our way through all of the books. The girls have been really enjoying them and so have I! Just thought I’d let you know how much we have been enjoying it. Thank you so much again, Tawnie
