Charlotte Mason advocated that children should learn handicrafts, better said, life skills.
Today I’m going to dive into why and how we’re going to teach our kids and ourselves the craft and skill of gardening.
Using Gentle + Classical Primer
The Kindergarten year is a super special year, am I right or am I right?? The following video is all about how I hope to guide my 5 yr old in his Kinder year using this incredible curriculum as MY guide. Gentle + Classical Primer.
I love planning the next year of homeschool!! It’s a time filled with so many possibilities and ideals that you hope and pray to bring to fruition the upcoming year. Today I’m going to walk you through my process of planning and give you a sneak peek into the books and curriculum we have lined up for my upcoming year 2.
This Is How We Put Together Our Evaluation Portfolio for Year 1.
I can’t tell you how excited I am to be at the end of the year. I don’t know about you, but I’m in need of a break.
A break from the routine, a break to enjoy a slower pace, a break to enjoy some leisure time and a break to hopefully muster up the impetus to start planning for next year.
But before we indulge in this break let’s dive into evaluations, portfolios, important documents and how to organize it all.
Today I’m inviting you into our week of exams. If a Charlotte Mason Exam Week for your younger years seems confusing, I hope I'm able to help demystify it all and empower you to jump in to an exciting exam week!
In this Year 1 (First Grade) year, Nature Study is usually reserved for Fridays. It’s our art, science and sometimes poetry and geography day depending on the week. On this particular Friday, we’re getting more hands on and learning all about WORMS & composting – Vermicomposting to be exact!
Following with the deep dive into all our lessons, today we're diving into HISTORY. The history rotation we follow is based on Ambleside Online’s history book list for my year 1 student.
Geography? For First Grade?
I know, I thought the same thing when I first perused the curriculum I chose for my daughter. But I went with it. I searched high and low into every single subject and was able to see glimmers of what other veteran moms did and asked questions in forums, etc. But I thought, since we're nearly done with this first year and my daughter so looks forward to this subject when she sees it's on our schedule for the week, that it would be beneficial for other homeschool families to see a deep dive into this subject.
