Monthly Discussion Group:
Volumes 1-6 of Miss Charlotte M. Mason
We are beginning Volume 3, “School Education” in April 2019.
*A gathering of encouragement, truth & goodness will be meeting on the SECOND Tuesday evening of each month from 8:00-9:00pm online, via Zoom. Please email Vanessa Kijewski at VanessaKijewski@gmail.com for further information and to be added to an email list for an invite to join in our meeting time.
During August 2017- March 2018 we walked through Volume 1 of “Home Education” by Charlotte M. Mason. It was a such a wonderful time of fellowship and discussion each month. We will pause for May- July to be with family, assimilate and refresh ourselves & family with our new knowledge. Thereafter, we coursed through Volume 2, “Parents and Childern,” taking time to look at and reflect on the fresco in Florence, Italy that holds so much; assimilated the Great Recognition through picture study & talk as we concluded our time in January of 2019.
On April 9, 2019 we will begin with Volume 3 of “School Education” by Charlotte M. Mason. Let’s all try to read, but always come and delight in refreshing company and encouraging embraces, no matter what.
READING SCHEDULE FOR 2019
April: Chapters 1-5; p. 1-55
May: Chapters 6-10; p. 56-112

BREAK in JULY for a month of summer adventures with Family

ADDITIONALLY, please come with a commonplace entry from the current volume’s reading portion (simply a sentence or passage or even only a short phrase that Miss Mason gives in the reading selection for the month). This will be a nice way to help us stay connected in the volumes when we are in discussion each month. If you do not already have a commonplace book a simple journal will work well. Adding to it as you come to something that speaks to you personally, whether in the volumes or any other book you may be reading through.
(A lovely article filled with a mother’s heart and devotion was written about where to begin when reading through all six volumes of Miss Mason’s Education Series- “The Truth About Volume 6” by Morgan Conner, May 5, 2017 (to be found on at charlottemasonpoetry.com).
