Disciple Your Children
"Mom, will you stay with me until I go to sleep?" It was yet another night that fear was taking over our household. Childhood fears are a common problem, especially at bedtime. Whether your child struggles with nighttime fears or anxious thoughts during the day, these three strategies will help him overcome his fears.
Everyone has a dominant learning style. This learning style impacts many areas of your life, including how you experience God. Today's Triumphant Minute provides practical tips to help your children experience God in the unique way He made them.
"I'm sorry." she said with a voice dripping with attitude and disdain. I could tell she wasn't really sorry. And my heart broke. I want my children to say they are sorry, but only when they really mean it. In today’s episode of the Triumphant Minute, I'm talking about why you shouldn't make your child say he is sorry and what you can do instead.
New to Homeschooling
If only I had known... When we first began homeschooling, there was a lot I didn’t know. Here are a few of the things I wish someone would have told me our first year homeschooling.
New to Charlotte Mason?
There are so many homeschooling methods out there. How do you decide which one to follow? Everyone has their own story of how they began homeschooling. Here’s my story of how we came to embrace a Charlotte Mason education.
I have learned so much about history, science, music, art, and math by reading books with my children. It can be overwhelming, though, to determine which books to read. I’ve made the process a little easier for you by compiling book suggestions by subject and student age.
How do you create end-of-term examinations when you don’t use a boxed curriculum? Find out why you should implement Charlotte Mason examinations in your homeschool and practical advice for writing and implementing Charlotte Mason exams.
It is important to have regular fellowship with like minded homeschool families. A Charlotte Mason Discussion Group has been an incredible encouragement for me. If there is not a Charlotte Mason Discussion Group in your area, I encourage you to consider starting one. Here are some tips for starting your own.
Simplify Your Homeschool Planning
I had been reading about how other people use mind maps or sticky notes to organize their thoughts so I wanted to try it when planning our homeschool curriculum. Learn how to use these tools in your planning process.
I grabbed my pen, lesson plan book, and a cup of tea and went to sit in the sun on a beautiful spring afternoon. We just finished our second term of the school year and I was about to complete the end-of-term reflections. This is not an activity I have always done, but has become an invaluable part of our homeschool routine.
Homeschool teacher workdays are an important aspect of your homeschool planning. Don't neglect this time to evaluate the past and look toward the future.
Make Learning Fun
We tried so many things to improve her reading ability. Over the course of a few months, her reading ability had definitely improved. Could hand clapping games have made such a noticeable difference?
Incorporating movement into your school day has so many benefits, including improving your child's focus. Even adults need to get up and walk around or stretch after a period of focused work. Here are three of our favorite ways to incorporate movement into our school day.
Strewing is an excellent way of creating a learning rich environment by taking advantage of your child's natural curiosity. I strew anything that I want to create a little excitement about and surround with curiosity. Learn how you can strew in your homeschool.
