Sessions and Schedule
(Doors open at 9:00 A.M.)
Session 1—Inside a CM Home School
Take a look at a typical day in the life of families who use the Charlotte Mason Method. You’ll discover what the method looks like in everyday practice and gain lots of practical help and clear explanations.
Session 2—Habit-Training Yourself: Good Habits Are Not Just for Kids
Yes, we want our children to have good habits, but many of us parents struggle with habits in our own lives. Take a look at four powerful pictures that give insight into how habits are formed and what to do about your bad habits. Learn the three most important words to keep in mind when habit-training. Discover how to instill your own good habits that will serve you well and help your days run smoothly.
Lunch Break (12:00–1:00 P.M.)
Session 3—The Quiet Schooling of Nature
We all have a fascinating science resource right outside our doors, but we often overlook it because it is so quiet. Come learn how nature study lays the foundation for science lessons, how to get started, and how to keep a nature notebook, plus fun and simple nature study ideas for the whole family.
Session 4—The Five Gifts of Intentional Parents
We parents give our children gifts every day. Some are survival gifts, given just to make a problem go away. Some are default gifts, carelessly copied from those around us. Our goal should be intentional gifts, purposely given to prepare our children for life. Discover the five gifts of intentional parents—all centered around the word TEACH—along with lots of practical tips for giving them.
End of Conference (4:00 P.M.)
