The Charlotte Mason method is based on Charlotte’s firm belief that the child is a person and we must educate that whole person, not just his mind.
Charlotte Mason's Student Motto:
"I am, I can, I ought, I will."
"I am, I can, I ought, I will." This was the motto she gave us.

Franklin, one of Charlotte Mason's students

The Benefits of Art Study Art study tends to get shoved to the bottom of the list when we’re in the thick of our homeschooling year. I know, I’m guilty of doing the same in the past. Reading, math, history… these things just seem so much more important than art lessons. When it’s been a long day (or week, or year) of schooling, the only … [Read more...]
