The CM Bookfinder Is Here!

“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 […]

Ready-Made Schedules

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 […]

Your CM Destinations

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 […]
