K-12 Plan For A Christ Centered Education

Here at Schamelot we take a living books approach to education, allowing for lots of free time to explore, create, experiment, imagine, and cultivate the virtues, particularly piety, obedience and diligence. What is called "The Charlotte Mason Method" permeates our homeschool philosophy, and Kolbe Academy and Mother of Divine Grace are the spring boards for our curriculum, which I put together for each child each year. I hope you will find something I have shared helpful to your homeschooling adventure! (scroll down after clicking a link)

Catechism Made Easy

I picked up this book from the book table at Mass, yesterday, and have been thoroughly enjoying it ever since! I've heard a little about the basic concept behind the method, before, but never had it all laid out for me. It shows you how to use a mnemonic, artificial memory system to remember just about anything, and it uses the material of the basic truths of our faith to teach it. We'll be using this for school starting Wednesday. You should really check it out--I think you'll like it as much as I do!
Happy Schooling!
