Sessions and Schedule
(Doors open at 9:00 A.M.)
Session 1—Language Arts the Charlotte Mason Way
Teaching language arts doesn’t have to be complicated. Discover what exactly is included in language arts and how the Charlotte Mason Method simply follows the natural progression of learning to use language well. Gather lots of practical tips for teaching language arts in an enjoyable and simple way—the Charlotte Mason way.
Session 2—One Word Can Change Everything: The
Strong Weak-Willed Child
When Sonya realized how Charlotte Mason defined strong-willed vs. weak-willed, it completely changed her attitude toward her children. If you feel like you are constantly butting heads in a battle of the wills, this session could revolutionize how you view your child. Discover helpful ideas that can relieve the tension, refresh your perspective, and restore the peace.
Lunch Break (12:00–1:00 P.M.)
Session 3—Keep It Simple
Save time and money by teaching most school subjects to all of your students together. Join Sonya for practical strategies to lower your stress level, provide a well-rounded education, and help you and your children build sweet memories. Learn how to keep it simple by teaching your whole family together with Charlotte Mason methods!
Session 4—Teach from a Flowing Stream, Not a Stagnant Pool
A drink from a vibrant, flowing stream is much more refreshing than one from a scummy, stagnant pool! Sonya encourages you in this session to breathe vivacity back into your personal life—for your children’s benefit as well as your own. Discover a practical way to rejuvenate your weekly schedule to help you embrace living, not settle for surviving.
End of Conference (4:00 P.M.)
