Charlotte Mason Carnival: Planning and Organization

Planning and Organization CM Carnival at Our Journey Westward

Welcome to the Charlotte Mason Carnival!

In this edition of the CM Carnival, we are taking an in-depth look at how Charlotte Mason homeschoolers plan and organize – everything from curriculum and daily schedules to school rooms.  Enjoy!

Letters from Nebby shares her Charlotte Mason curriculum choices for elementary in Our School Plans.

Homeschool Room makes plans to include poetry and more in Scheduling Tea Time for the Extras and Ten Tea Time Snacks.

I’ve shared curriculum choices for 11th, 8th and 1st grades in 2013-14 Curriculum.

Fisher Academy reminds us that a big part of a CM education is atmosphere in her post Scheduling: Finding a Family Rhythm.

Ellie Eugenia plans her Charlotte Mason Homeschool on the Cheap and shares her Homeschool This Year – First Grade.

I’ve taken the liberty of adding some of my own favorite Charlotte Mason Planning and Organizing posts around the web.

I’ve pinned more favorites for you on my Charlotte Mason Pinterest board.
