Charlotte Mason Learning
My journey with the Charlotte Mason way started in 2000, and even though I only had one resource to help me learn the ropes, I could tell that this method of learning was going to be amazing for our family. All these years later, I’m still a strong Charlotte Mason supporter, and help others trying to find their way through her method.
The thing that appealed to me the most when I was first learning this way of educating was the simple ideals that took the focus off from me, as the ‘teacher’ and put it on the child, where it rightly belonged.
Everywhere I turned to look for fruits of this method in our home, I was seeing signs of rewards. What amazed me was that Charlotte Mason was teaching so much more than how to educate my children with books, but how to organize our home, tips in parenting and even how to stay connected with things that interested me the most.

Nature Study the Charlotte Mason Way
Nature study is one of the easiest things to implement in your homeschooling, and one that your children would love. For me, as a city girl, it was a challenge to really enjoy being in the outdoor, especially when my son naturally fell in love with all things creepy. Seeing how much he was struggling to learn to read, but anything nature involved came so natural to him, this one method became a blessing to both of us.
In fact, nature study is the thing I use to get him out of his struggle of reading and into learning. While he was learning to conquer his struggles, I used the study of birds to get me past my struggle with the outdoors. Now, I love a good nature walk, and don’t mind the creepy things. Well, as long as they aren’t too close to me!
