Simple and Easy Review(Charlotte Mason way)
Have you ever considered how easy homeschooling would be if only we could start paying attention to what works for us as a teacher, our children and our unique family dynamics while ignoring what the curriculums says, the perfect methods demand.
If we are to sustain homeschooling, it is imperative that we start making a habit to look for win win scenarios where we can do things consistently, more effectively and most importantly more easily. In this video, I have shared my experience as a homeschooler in the long run. The best part is I am not talking about compromising on our standard of education while achieving this. Yes, It is possible to have high aspirations and lofty goals as an educator and still achieve those while doing things in a simple way, using vey little time.
I usually start with a concept I have learnt from many of the educational philosophies I got a chance to explore and adapt it to serve multiple goals in our household. This eliminates the need for doing all these subjects/activities separately. It is a very simple concept once you start looking at things in this manner. Every experience can be turned into an educational one. I hope to be able to share enough examples to make it clear and doable.
I will be sharing these ‘hacks’ which have helped my family ‘Simplify Education’. Saturday mornings I plan to do a “Live” session on Facebook/Instagram. This seems to be a great time to share these little ideas.
Here is a recording of one such session. This one is about ‘Review’ with your spouse using the Charlotte Mason method of narration. In this video I first give a background and lay out the benefits. I also shared what is narration and a little bit about Charlotte Mason. I then proceed to show the hack and how it is helping my family.
I hope this was helpful.
If you find benefit in it, please share or let me know in the comments. Happy Homeschooling!!
