How does the Charlotte Mason method work with Charlotte Mason?
Should we encourage children to read the classics?
End of year exams - how does Charlotte Mason suggest they are done?
Have you made a Book of Centuries yet? This is perfect for teaching your child the chronology of history.
I was asked this questions so many times. Yes we do need to learn how to teach at homes but school teacher training is not as helpful as you would think.
Recently I saw a post with people categorised as pure or impure Charlotte Mason homeschoolers! Such distinctions are a little too unhelpful. Where do our own ideas about education fit in with a Charlotte Mason philosophy?
When I first began homeschooling I was the lynch pin for work being done. The kids were always saying what do I do next. If I got distracted then the whole routine of the day fell apart. But then I discovered workboxes. It was an absolute game changer and I love to share this practical way to organise homeschool lessons for a few children.
When we start homeschooling the future is unknown. These are the things that helped me hang in there.
For all the newbie homeschoolers, I've been seeing some pretty crappy advice for homeschoolers lately. I hope this will help you.

Unschooling and Curriculum 26/04/2022

Unschooling and Curriculum

When I first looked into unschooling in Australia in 1997 John Holt was the unschooling guru. He was a American teacher who discovered that children could learn as they followed their interests. He said, “children who were provided with a rich and stimulating learning environment would learn what they are ready to learn, when they are ready to learn it”.

Raymond Moore, another alternative educator and friend of Holts’, began sharing his research on education without schooling and his phrase homeschooling gained momentum. From the 1970s unschooling or homeschooling meant the same thing, your child learnt away from school and within the family setting. In some countries, like India, unschooling is still the more commonly used term for home education.

Let me share my story of the evolution of unschooling in Australia and how the terms have changed over the years.

Unschooling and Curriculum What's natural learning? Is it the same unschooling in Australia? Is curriculum OK? How can my child learn what they want when they want to?
