Peek Inside Charlotte Mason Inspired Journals-
Did you know we have a lovely Charlotte Mason Homeschool Journal? It’s ideal for ages 9-17, (3rd-12th grade).
This curriculum handbook is designed to be used along with library books, audio books, tutorials, documentaries, and classical music. Unlike our other core journals, we tap into the Charlotte Mason method by incorporating Picture Study daily and creative writing/ narration sections. Make homeschooling fun for your students, while tapping into their interests and covering all the basic subjects.
This plan is perfect for struggling readers and learners. We have included Art & Logic Games that help with dyslexia, reading confusion, and letter reversals.
“Great layout for Charlotte Mason beginners that need to transition. Still elements of fun-schooling but definitely an enjoyable resource and we love that it implements nature study, picture study, and copy work! Key elements in a Charlotte Mason atmosphere. We also love that Sarah has taken the time to look out for the struggles some of our children have with dyslexia and ADHD. Well done!” ~Amazon Customer
“This is truly a beautiful one of a kind book. It has art study in it which is different than the other journals. The book is just beautiful and my daughter is really enjoying it.” ~ An Amazon Customer

Speaking of timelines…here’s a little peek at how we used them a few years ago…
Someone asked about how our family uses the Make Your Own Timeline Of World History.
1. I put the Timeline, 3 history books, pens and pencils, and a calculator on the table in the dining room.
2. I ask all the kids to come to the table.
3. I tell them that today everyone in the family will add something to the Timeline, including mom and dad.
4. I added the summer of 1950 when both my parents were born. Joe added pictures and dates to 5 pages, Esther added WW1, Rachel added January 1917. Some kids will work later.
5. I will clear the table once everyone has added something.
