    I am new to Charlotte Mason and just starting to plan for next year.  I’m just curious with the Enrichment Studies, there are so many different activities and my kids are still quite young (ages 7 and 5) has anyone maybe just done like 2 or 3 Enrichments in one year and then 2 or 3 the next year and so on?  I feel like it might get a little overwhelming but I am also new to all of this, and hoping to start Charlotte Mason for the first time in the fall.  It’s also going to be super expensive to purchase all those materials for the Enrichments so I plan to substitute quite a bit as well.  Any tips on this topic are suggested!

    SCM encourages you to use the curriculum to best fit your needs.  With that in mind, you will only be touching many of the enrichment pieces (art, composer, handicraft, picture portfolio, et) 1x a week so it’s not overwhelming to fit it all into a day.

    I have been using Enrichment Studies Volume 1 and I cannot seem to locate a version of The Swiss Family Robinson that contains 44 chapters. The Family Read-Aloud goes to Lesson 117  and states to read chapter 44. Any ideas?

    Curious.  I will try to find an answer for you.

    I will still work on finding an answer for you but have you looked at the book in the CM Bookfinder?  There is a list of chapter titles.  You could compare them to what you have.

    Sonya’s version has 44 chapters.  In searching Google Books, there is everything from 13 chapters to 57 chapters (and lots in between). Just use the version you have available.  The lesson plans spread that book out over 49 days of readings. You can either divide the number of pages in your version by 49 to get a rough break down of pages to read each day or just read one chapter each day and move on to the next book when you’re done. The main thing is to enjoy the story together.

    Thank you for your help. I looked up the version in the link by the ISBN and it didn’t match up to the chapter titles. I will continue to use the version we have.

    Again, thank you for your help.
