Our study group is nearing the end of our Start Here study of Volume 6. I’m trying to decide which volume to read next, 1 or 3? Our children are age 12, nearly 11, and 3 1/2 so I think both volumes are appropriate. I plan to read them both eventually, but I’m just wondering if it makes more sense to read one before the other? I realize Home Education is up to age 9 and School Education covers age 9-12. I have kiddos at both 🙂
I would start with 1. 🙂sherazParticipant
My group is almost finished with 1. It has been really fun. You might find it interesting to see how much refining was done in the 30 years (or so) between her first volume and her last. 😉
That makes me wonder – which you recommend my group start next?
Sheraz, did you start with 1? Have you read 6?sherazParticipant
We started with 1 – most of the women have younger children. I am going to start 6 myself, even if the group doesn’t, because it occurred to me when typing to you how often people say that she refined and clarified things from the first in the last. It just seems fun, in a book-study sort of way, while the first one is fresh. My group briefly discussed number 6 for the next book.
I personally have read 1 twice, book 4 (I organized study guides for it using the questions in the back – it has been interesting and fun with my olders) and big chunks of 2 and 3.
That doesn’t include all the others like Consider This, Minds More Awake, The Living Page, For the Children’s Sake, Charlotte Mason Education, Charlotte Mason Companion, Penny Gardner’s CM Study Guide, The Story of Charlotte Mason, and all the various collections that Sonya has so helpfully put together. So much to read, too little time! LOL
Didn’t you do Brandy Vencel’s (from the AfterThoughts blog) 20 Principles Study Guide last year? How did it go?
Yes, we are using Brandy’s Start Here study guide. It’s going well! As the facilitator, I like having a study guide as a base. It seems easier to get the group back on track if we get off on a topic. It also gives a good starting point each month (We meet monthly). The assigned and supplemental readings are helpful. We have approx. three meetings left. I’ve posted some thoughts here each month if you’re interested…
I would highly recommend reading Volume 6 next.
