I have so much I want to write about education!
The raising of little ones and learning to recognize their individual needs is fodder for limitless discussion. Although it is Montessori philosophy that guides how we learn in our home, the incorporation of Classical Conversations gives us a comprehensive outline and a schedule. If you are interested in using Classical Conversations as a spine in your homeschool, you can start by plotting out on a calendar when you want to introduce each of the 24 weeks of material contained in the CC Foundations Guide. My tentative plan for the 2012-2013 schoolyear looks like this: [button link=”https://helpingchildrenlearn.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/2012_2013calendar.pdf” style=”download” color=”silver”]Click to View Our CC Schedule[/button]
Granted, the dates are flexible. “CC” weeks, as we call them, are busy for me, full-speed-ahead weeks. The “off weeks” are also busy (that’s life for moms of little kids,) but the atmosphere and schedule are much lighter. To see what we do on typical CC days as well as during typical “off” days, view this: [button link=”https://helpingchildrenlearn.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/off-weekcc-week2012-2013.pdf” style=”download” color=”silver”]Our Daily Schedule For CC-Weeks and Off-Weeks[/button]
Hope this helps!
This post has been updated to reflect the changes I’ve made for the 2012-2013 schoolyear!
