“A truly good book teaches me better than to read it.
I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint.
What I began by reading, I must finish by acting. ”
Henry David Thoreau
I am planning to use mostly an Ambleside Online curriculum next year. The benefits are it is largely planned out for me already. I simply need to make sense of it all for myself, create a doable schedule, gather materials and stick with it. Simple. Right?
I am also new to CM methods and I hear that's the key to making a reading list into an education.
I've got all my CM books out and am reading a bit from that one and a bit from this one. I'm soaking up the inspiration and trying to get a feel for how to do it.
Habit Revisited by Mary Woodis- This is a very inspirational book with many scriptural references. We are working on her first habit suggestion right now-OBEDIENCE. Who couldn't use some help in that department?
Charlotte Mason Study Guide by Penny Gardner - This is a quick read, but gives a great overview and some practical ideas.
Charlotte Mason Companion- A truly thoughtful book that I am soaking in bit by bit.
The library just called and said Home Education by Charlotte Mason is waiting for me on hold. I tried reading online but I wanted the book so I could read while the boys had their outdoor time each day. I plan on doing my own written narrations on the book.
