Description

Take some time to be encouraged in your role as a homeschool parent. At an SCM Encouragement Conference you will gain the confidence you need to teach your children the Charlotte Mason way. During the weekend you will meet others who are using Charlotte’s wonderful methods, and the heart-to-heart teaching from Sonya will refresh you in your calling as a Christian parent. Join us for two days that will breathe new life into your home school.

Sessions and Schedule

Friday, October 13 (Doors open at 9:00 A.M.)

Session 1—Learning with Living Books
Good living books feed our children a feast of ideas, not just dry facts. Learn what makes living books “living,” and practice using them in a way that makes learning stick.

Session 2—Inside a Charlotte Mason Home School
Take a look at a typical day in the life of families who use the Charlotte Mason Method. See what the method looks like in everyday practice.

Lunch Break (12:00–1:30 P.M.)

Q & A Session

Session 3—Laying Down the Rails: The Power of Good Habits in Your Home School
Discover the secret to smooth and easy days: habit training. Learn how to instill good habits, which habits Charlotte Mason encouraged parents to cultivate in their children, and practical tips for cultivating the Top Three.

Session 4—Navigating the High School Years
Yes, you can homeschool the Charlotte Mason way through high school! Gain encouragement and practical insights for staying the course and finishing well.

Evening Break (5:00 P.M.)

Saturday, October 14 (Doors open at 9:00 A.M.)

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.

Session 6—Your Questions Answered: Language Arts
Take time to discuss how to apply Charlotte’s natural progression in language arts to your unique students and personal situations. Get ideas for the nitty gritty, day-to-day challenges you’re facing in hearing and reading, telling and writing.

Lunch Break (12:00–1:30 P.M.)

Q & A Session

Session 7—Keep It Simple: How to Teach Your Whole Family Together
Save time and money by teaching most school subjects to all of your students together. Learn effective strategies to lower your stress level, provide a well-rounded education, and help you and your children build sweet memories.

Session 8—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 (5:00 P.M.)

Lunches

Lunch each day will be on your own. Feel free to bring a sack lunch. These break times are great opportunities to get to know other CMers and make new friends.

Children and Babies

Childcare will not be provided at the conference.

Nursing babies are welcome. We ask only that mamas are considerate of all the other attendees and step out of the room if the baby is becoming loud enough to be a distraction. With some babies that’s easy; others have become show-stoppers. You know your baby best. If you think it will be an easy task to enjoy the conference and not detract from others’ enjoyment with Baby present, please bring that precious little one along.
