Tip of the Week

Charlotte Mason - Nuts-n-Bolts
*The basic Charlotte Mason philospohy includes "regular school" plus the humanities. Originally, the humanities meant things people make - music, art, and crafts.
*A typical day using the Charlotte Mason method would include one hour of structured academic time. Charlotte believed that parents should schedule as little as one hour per day in the morning to do academics and then the parents and the child should go out into nature and sketch.
*Children should have plenty of free time to pursue their own interests.
*Parents should frequently read aloud to their children and then have the children paraphrase what they have learned. This is referred to as the narration process.
