Blog Post Round-Up

Dear Reader,

Here once again are some of the posts and articles I have been reading recently:

The Primacy of Habit” from Brandy Vencel at Afterthoughts Blog. I love this blog and this post is perfect because my own local CM group is going through Charlotte’s 20 Principles as well. Living Charlotte Mason in California is also in the midst of a series on “education is a discipline.” You can find part 4 of that series here.

The Legacy of Fiction” from Leah’s Bookshelf tells of the power of books in our lives. If you like Christian fiction, subscribe to her blog for lots of good book reviews.

“Spelling Other than by Dictation” from Sage Parnassus raises a question I think many of us have — will my child really learn to spell just from dictation and what if they aren’t? Personally, I have used a spelling curriculum till high school age with my kids. I am thinking of dropping it next year and trying to do better with dictation instead. But I am pondering, based on this article, how the two can be integrated.

If you have ever wondered why we need to study algebra or chemistry or . . .??, Shannon Goods’ article “Why I Didn’t Want My Child in My Chemistry Class” at Charlotte Mason Institute will give you something to think about.

Joy Shannon discusses Charlotte’s 12th Principle in “Finding Fullness of Life in the Science of Relations” at The Charlotte Mason Institute. If you have ever wondered what that phrase “the science of relations” means, her article will help you understand.

Finally, a plug — my daughter has a kids’ art contest on her blog. The deadline is coming up (4/30/16). Please check it out.

Happy Reading!

Nebby
