Franklin, one of Charlotte Mason's students

A Gentle Homeschool Morning Time Schedule As we've gotten back into the school groove this year, morning time has definitely become our very favorite part of our daily homeschool schedule.

As a child, I would sit enraptured with the rhythm and rhyme of Dr. Seuss. The way the words rollicked about inducing fits of giggles and tied-up tongues was the beginning of my love of poetry. When I entered school, however, I nearly lost that joy. There was so much analysis and dissecting that Shakespeare almost lost his polish. Every single … [Read more...]
