We’re pleased to announce several new features on the CM Organizer and CM Bookfinder are now up and running. Here’s a quick overview: Daily Journal note CM Organizer users asked for it, and here it is. With this new feature you can add a general note about the day without tying it to a specific […]
Thanks to everyone who helped make the 2007 SCM Photo Contest so much fun! We received nearly 300 photos so it was a tough job to pick the winners! But here they are:
My family just returned from a few days at the beach. We got some great photos of our children holding seashells, ducking under a flock of seagulls, building sand castles, and walking along the beach.
In our previous post about why the CM Organizer is an online service, we promised to talk later about the advantage of security and backups you get with the CM Organizer.
We really enjoyed “meeting” you and talking with you at the Webinars last week! You had lots of great questions and lots of great suggestions. A couple of questions came up frequently, and we would like to answer those for everyone.
Our kids like to check out the Bonus Features on any DVDs we watch as a family, and we like it too. You never know what interesting tidbits you might find! We wanted to let all of you know that we’ve added a few pages of Bonus Features to our Web site.
Ever been to one of those CM get-togethers where someone recommends a book and immediately everybody begins firing questions: “What was that title again?” “Who’s the author?” “Where can I get it?” We certainly have. Many times.
“Does anyone know of a living book about beavers?” “Could someone recommend a book for my eighth grader on Johannes Kepler?” “I’m looking for good biographies of composers that would be written for younger children around first or second grade.” Sound familiar? We’ve all been there, hunting for that certain living book. It can be […]
Someone recently asked if she could come to my (Sonya’s) house and be a fly on the wall for a day or two. While I certainly don’t mind having company, what this mom really wanted was help figuring out how to fit everything into a day of schooling. She wanted to see how I scheduled […]
We know things have been quiet from us for a while and that’s because we’ve been working really hard behind the scenes.
Sorry you haven’t heard from us lately. Some of you may already know that Sonya had an unexpected trip to the hospital and emergency surgery.
During a recent interview, I (Sonya) was asked, “If someone wanted to homeschool, how would they begin?” I thought, “Good question! How did I begin those many years ago?”
We’re excited as we look to the year ahead! We have many hopes and plans of what we want to add to Simply Charlotte Mason in the upcoming months. Here’s a short list: More free downloads A suggested curriculum guide for twelve years of CM homeschooling The release of five books full of dictation exercises […]
Behind the scenes, we’re adding the finishing touches to your Personal Book Lists. We’re excited about this feature that will help you keep track of books you want to get, books you want to remember for later, books you want to borrow from the library, and books you already have. I (Sonya) was just at […]
It’s fall. I (Sonya) just gave my front porch a fresh look with a straw wreath and a bushel basket full of leaves, apples, and a pumpkin. Since it’s fall, it’s also time for a fresh look at our project and on our Web site. First, a fresh look at our project. We’re getting a […]
We love hearing from you! Thanks for your encouragement and for your questions. For those of you who may not know it, you can read fellow CMers’ comments on SimplyCharlotteMason. At the end of each update on the site is the little word “Comments.” If you click on that word, you’ll be able to read […]
For some time now, we’ve been telling you about the features we’re planning and building for Simply Charlotte Mason. Many of you have responded with encouraging comments, suggestions, and questions. Thank you! One question we are asked repeatedly is “When will it be ready to use?”
One of the highlights of any Charlotte Mason get-together is when a mom tells about a great twaddle-free field trip she discovered. It seems that everybody grabs a pen and starts writing frantically as the Web site addresses fly. Well, we thought it would be great to compile all those ideas and addresses on Simply […]
Let’s face it, unless you know somebody who knows somebody, you don’t often find out about Charlotte Mason-friendly events — even in your own backyard. Wouldn’t it be great to have one centralized Charlotte Mason Events calendar? Just think, fellow CMers all over the world could post their coffee shop book studies, tea parties, monthly […]
When you get a home library as large as ours are, it’s easy to get confused between what you thought about buying and did; what you thought about buying and decided to get from the library instead; what you want to remember to buy for a future study; what you have on your perpetual wish […]
