In this episode, Julie Ross chats with Shay Kemp, a fellow homeschooler, about the ways that her homeschool has changed since using the philosophy, principles and methods of Charlotte Mason. They discuss the topics of children owning their own education, flexibility within the structure of a schedule, living books, narration, and how each of these has helped their homeschooling day flow in a meaningful way as her family grows in using the methods of Charlotte Mason. Julie and Shay also share about how to begin a Charlotte Mason education with older children and ways to make that a smooth transition.
Charlotte Mason puts a great emphasis on children having plenty of time outdoors. In her programmes, students would study specific aspects of nature each term. How do we incorporate this part of the feast in today’s modern, mostly inside lifestyle? What about the mom who has little experience in the natural world? In today’s episode, Lynn Seddon, creator of Exploring Nature with Children will help answer these questions and many more to help get you started on offering this rich subject in your home.
