According to Merriam-Webster.com
Definition of ECLECTIC
: selecting what appears to be best in various doctrines, methods, or styles
: composed of elements drawn from various sources; also :
Fitting for our homeschool style mostly because of the variety in sources, but can also cover the methods we use.
I use a little of everything for 2 reasons.. First as a member of the TOS Crew, we get to try a variety of products , and second since I homeschool on a shoe string budget I get creative with products and uses.
Is this the ideal, no, but it works and it allows us a little freedom to explore different styles and techniques to find the perfect fit for the boys.
Looking ahead to next year (school year is August -June... we only take July off and then we usually do learning activities and VBS), I am still coming up with a very Eclectic style as I add things to my wish list and decide between the wants and needs.
