SCM Forum Celebrates One-Year Anniversary

Last November we launched the Simply Charlotte Mason community forum with the prayer that it would be a place of encouragement, grace, and help for all those using the Charlotte Mason method.

We’re thrilled with the community that has grown over the past year! We’ve discussed topics from habits to narration to math to schedules to gardens, and so many of you have joined in. Those who read, those who only ask questions, and those who post answers are all part of the community that makes the forum what it is.

We especially want to recognize the top ten post-ers on the SCM Forum. Everyone has benefited from their practical, cheerful, and personal posts. So as part of our celebration, we asked each one which SCM book we could send her as a thank-you gift. Just for fun, here is the list of the top ten (using their forum names) and the book each selected.

  1. CindyS—Jack’s Insects
  2. Bookworm—Jack’s Insects
  3. csmamma—2009 Calendar, A Year of Smooth and Easy Days
  4. Rachel—Hours in the Out-of-Doors
  5. Shanna—Laying Down the Rails
  6. Iamasahm—Joshua through Malachi & Ancient Greece
  7. hvfth99—Spelling Wisdom
  8. christina—Laying Down the Rails
  9. BlessedMama—Jashub’s Journal
  10. live2inspire—Your Business Math: Pet Store

Thank you to everyone who has participated in the SCM Forum. We hope this is just the first of many years together!
