Believe it or not, I didn’t use copywork until we had already been #homeschooling for several years. I had heard of it, but I never understand not only what an asset it can be, but how much it can simplify your #homeschool routine.
If you’ve either never heard of or never used copywork, then this video is for you.
I can’t believe I made a whole series about #homeschooling with living books and totally missed art and music. Duh! You don’t need to spend a ton of money or replicate school in order to get a comprehensive education in these subjects.
When I was growing up, I hated history. I hated everything about it: the boring textbooks, the required memorization of dates and other (what I thought was) useless trivia, the multiple choice tests that were easy to ace but served no purpose when it came to retention, and the boring documentaries accompanied by worksheets designed to make sure we were paying attention.
Nature study notebooking, or nature study journals, were actually the first type of notebooking I ever heard of, yet they were the last kind we actually tried.
Inspired by the Charlotte Mason method, these notebooks are a beautiful keepsake for both your children and you. Find out some practical tips in my latest Notebooking 101 video.
Homeschooling and education are my passion. It is my fervent hope to one day devote more time to creating content for you. If you’re interested in helping to make this a reality, consider supporting me on Patreon.
Thank you so much. I appreciate each and every one of you!
Let me rephrase that. I love history now. As a student, it was probably my least favorite subject (besides math, of course).
All of those boring textbook assignments left me feeling like I didn’t care if I never read another history book again. And the memorization. Oh my Lord. In my opinion, if you’re looking for an effective way to kill any desire your child might have to learn about the past, make them memorize a slew of dates that have no meaning to them.
