It is so easy for life to get hectic and the next thing you know it’s hard to include all the wonderful subject’s that are included in a Charlotte Mason Education. The subjects I am speaking of are Artist/ Picture study, Composer study, Hymn and also Folksong study. This will be the third year I have included these subjects and I have been pretty consistent at it but there are times that when push comes to shove these are the subjects that get dropped. This year I wanted to do something that would keep these subjects on my mind and in our line of vision. So I put a table in the corner of my dining area and I have placed on it a frame that holds the picture of the week and Cd’s for the composer, folksong and hymn that we are currently studying. I have also included on the table any books that I will use to enhance these subjects, for example; a composer and artist biography, a book that gives the background of hymns and the words to them and an art book that will have more work from the current artist we are studying.
I encourage you to keep these subjects in your Charlotte Mason inspired School and even if your not a Charlotte Mason fan you may still find that the above subjects are a wonderful addition to your home school schedule!
