Are you reading Charlotte Mason's homeschooling series? Are you discussing them with a group of homeschool moms? No? Why not?
I know - between Driver's Ed for a few weeks, music lessons on Thursdays, small group on Tuesdays, and scouts most Mondays you just aren't sure where to fit it in.
(You have to be able to get groceries some time!)
Well, now the book discussion has come to you. Every Tuesday afternoon when school is over and it's not quite time for dinner I'd like to invite you to tea. Just pop into Periscope (amberlynnbenton) at 4pm EST and we will chat for a few minutes while people arrive and then dive into a discussion of Charlotte Mason's Original Homeschooling Series. (Don't forget your tea.)
We are beginning with Volume 1 Home Education. (If you don't have a copy of the series not to worry Ambleside Online has provided a copy for you to read and study for free.) During this week's periscope I discussed:
- Who I am and why I'm doing this.
- How Tuesday Tea with Charlotte will work.
- A bit about my 13 years experience educating in this way.
- Why I'm still reading and studying Charlotte Mason after 13 years!
- This story of how Home Education came to be.
- An overview of the entire book.
- The big idea for this week's reading.

Here is an edited version of Tuesday's periscope in case you missed it:
(This video was removed. I discovered that Periscope was not as natural a medium for this kind of discussion as I hoped. I'm working on another format so stay tuned!)
This week we are reading from Part I:
- Some Preliminary Considerations
- A Method of Education
- The Child's Estate
- Offending The Children
- Despising The Children
- Hindering The Children
(If you have the pink set it's pp 1-20)
Don't worry we won't read this much every week - I just wanted us to get the first hill behind us!
Please use the comments below to ask questions or make comments about the week's reading.
If there is something in particular that you would like me to discuss in the Periscope next Tuesday just let me know!
