Hi Erin,
I am finding these posts really fascinating and bookmarking them for future reference.

I am also wondering if you have any posts on what your approach was for 1st and 2nd Grades.

We are just finishing 1st grade with our eldest, and we mostly used a very 'loose' version of the Catholic Heritage Curriculum.

By loose I mean, we followed the reading, and math curriculum fairly closely, but customized the rest and leaned toward more of an unschooling approach in other areas.

Recently, we just finished listening to a set of tals by John Taylor Gatto, and we are both feeling motivated to do something even MORE 'customized' next year.

I find your literature based approach really appealing since all our kids just love to read and be read to.

If you have anything, and if you wouldn't mind sharing it, I'd love to see how you approached 1st and 2nd grade.
