Bits & Pieces from a Week of a Charlotte Mason Education with a 10 Year Old

Moozle generally gravitates towards poetry when it comes to narrating either Plutarch or Shakespeare. We started Plutarch's Life of Themistocles this term and these are two poetic narrations she did relating to what we covered in our reading:

Free reading this week:

The Silver Brumby, Silver Brumby's Daughter and Silver Brumby's Kingdom by Elyne Mitchell - lovely, well-written books set in the Australian Alps. Moozle loves them - they have just the right mix of nature, wild horses and adventure to satisfy her.

The Origami craze continues. This week Grandma was visiting from interstate and she joined in.

This morning we took Grandma on a nature walk and Moozle & Benj did a bit of rock hopping

"It will not go out of my mind that if we pass this post and lantern either we shall find strange adventures or else some great changes of our fortunes."

Lucy Pevensie in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
