Planning Your Charlotte Mason Education
July 16, 2015 by Jannelle00
“Do not let the endless succession of small things crowd great ideals out of sight and out of mind.”
Because of life events (good & bad) the last few years our homeschool has been out of wack. I have recently felt like I am getting back to my rhythm. Last year was the best in recent memories and I have high hopes for this upcoming one.
Charlotte Mason is the heart of my vision and my families personality. I am SO EXCITED about our curriculum next year. We will be using Simply Charlotte Mason.
Why do I LOVE Charlotte Mason? This question deserve a post of its own. I will also be sharing with you our school year and activities.
This amazing book is helping me:
- Determine my “big picture”, my main goals for the family and each individual child
- Break down my goal into steps: Plan for the year, term, week and days.
My greatest challenge the last few years has been homeschooling multiple kids at different levels of intellect and development. This book addresses this challenge, common to a lot of homeschool moms, with practical advice.
The methods used in this book are valuable for any family, regardless what curriculum they decide to use.
How is your planning for homeschool going? What curriculum are you expecting to use?
