We are transitioning from typical Abeka textbook learning to a more relaxed style like Charlotte Mason. We are on a very tight budget and so my question is, does anyone or has anyone taken the "typical course study list" say for 8th grade and use existing books since 6th grade and 8th grade mimick each other in the areas of interest. For example. 6th grade history involves old world (United states). So does 8th grade. Can one use the old textbook and just expand on it by using things like the internet?

Thank you for your input

I just learned about this website: www.amblesideonline.com
They give lots of info about using the Charlotte Mason method, and have a lot of free resources (free e-books, etc).
