Simply Charlotte Mason

If you are interested in finding out about the Charlotte Mason method this is a useful website:

Includes some free e-books. I'm reading "Smooth and easy days" which sounded appealing for some reason! "The habits of the child produce the character of the man."

Next Meeting

Our next meeting is on Friday 18th June at my place. We will meet at 11.30 for a pot luck lunch, so bring something yummy to share!

As I previously said, there will be no business at this meeting, but rather a time of sharing and fellowship.

I have asked Julie Wiel to share for about 15 minutes about her home schooling journey, and also to share about one of the curriculum's she uses, called Rod & Staff. Julie will share with us about the pro's and con's of Rod & Staff, as well as bringing some samples for us to look at, and a catalogue or two to peruse if you are interested.

I look forward to seeing those of you who can make it along!

Next Meeting

Our next meeting is on Friday, 16th April (next Friday) at Katie Aldridge's house. We will start at 1:30 with a brief prayer and a short devotion. Please bring along a plate of afternoon tea to share. If there is any business you would like to discuss or bring up at the meeting, please notify Selina-Jane before-hand, so this can be organised. At present there is no business to discuss, so we will be having a social time.
