In case you missed any postings, here are some of the past week’s highlights from the Charlotte Mason Home Education Facebook page:
Okay, I can’t wait any longer to let you all know that I just now republished Habits: The Mother’s Secret to Success (I moved it from Lulu to CreateSpace) which means it’ll be available on Amazon now as both a paperback and a Kindle version. Has a new cover and a lower price, too. It used to sell for $8.99 but now it’s only $6.99. And I think it’s a better product, too. Better book, lower price. Win/win!
Currently it’s available directly from CreateSpace and also on Amazon.com as a paperback, but it should show up in the next few days in a Kindle version, as well.
I think the new volume turned out quite well. So excited!
Homeschooling on a Limited Budget
As a long-time homeschooling mom, I lost track of the number of times I had newbie homeschooling moms crying on my shoulder about all the myriads of choices available for home education curriculum and supplies.
I love what Charlotte Mason had to say about the idea of “ideas.”
The Life of the Mind grows upon Ideas––Now that life, which we call education, receives only one kind of sustenance; it grows upon ideas. You may go through years of so-called ‘education’ without getting a single vital idea; and that is why many a well-fed body carries about a feeble, starved intelligence; and no society for the prevention of cruelty to children cries shame on the parents.
My latest blog post:
Over the years, people have asked me numerous questions about Charlotte Mason-style home education and how to apply it in simple and inexpensive ways. I think Charlotte Mason’s ideas, philosophies, and methods can be much simpler to apply than many people realize.
