Charlotte Mason Blog Carnival - 20 Principles {overview}

Welcome to the Charlotte Mason Blog Carnival!

As always there are a variety of wonderful posts to peruse this time around. Grab a cuppa something and enjoy right now, or bookmark and come back for more inspiration throughout the week :)
Quotes are taken from this excellent PR Article: P.N.E.U. Principles As Illustrated by Teaching
"In every undertaking it is well to have an ideal end, and a scientific means for realizing that ideal."

Nancy presents: Picture Study at Church

Gina presents: Choosing Method over System

Tricia Hodges presents: Dogwood Nature Study and Chalk Pastel Sketches

Delightful Education presents: Teaching Reading, part one and part two.

"Good apparatus, clean school books, and perfect order are simply essential. Our last and greatest materials for "mind-building" are "ideas."

Catherine presents: Learning Foreign Language, part one and part two.

Alesha presents: Foreign Language

Penny presents: Florida History without a Textbook

"We believe in an "open-door policy" for our children; the larger and nobler an idea, the more fit are the children to receive it, for their hearts and minds are like a great open porch, not yet bricked up by prejudices."

The Tiger Chronicle presents: He's Still Alive

Angie presents: Poetry Surprise

Jimmie's Collage presents: Writing Formulas

"We therefore adopt a time-table calculated to give ideas and experiences in as many branches of our relationships as possible."

Barb presents: Nature Study, Living Science and Beyond

Shirley Ann presents: Intro to CM's 20 Principles

amy in peru presents: 20 Principles: {intro to an overview}

"No lesson is valuable which does not promote self-activity by making the child think, exercising its powers of narration or reproduction, or laying the ground-work for some future mental habit, making the idea given a well-spring of activity."

"No, it is the child who has to become accustomed to an idea, or led to discover a fact with as little of the teacher as a middleman, and as much "direct trading" as possible."

Upcoming carnival: @ Delightful Education on 5/15
Topic for discussion (optional): Education is a Life!
