Digging Deeper: A Charlotte Mason Immersion ~ July 15, Charlotte!

Have you been intrigued about the Charlotte Mason approach to homeschooling? What to find out what it is all about, exactly? 

Join Cheri Struble on JULY 15 for her 
Digging Deeper: A Charlotte Mason Immersion
Hosted by Callie Marie Acuff

Saturday at 9 AM - 3 PM
Warehouse 242

2307 Wilkinson Blvd, Charlotte, North Carolina 28208

Details: 
Join us for a day of community and digging deeper into Charlotte Mason's ideas and philosophy. Cheri Struble, mother of nine, with 21 years of homeschooling experience will lead us through an immersion morning. We will walk through a morning of lessons with you as the student. Subjects covered will be: hymn, copy work, geography, studied dictation, Shakespeare, history, picture study and natural history. This is a unique way to see CM's ideas with "flesh on it".

We will enjoy a potluck lunch and time to chat before reconvening for Cheri to share a bit about the heart of Charlotte Mason's philosophy. Understanding the "why" can bring a passion to your school and life with children that merely following a set of ideas cannot. CM says in her volume Home Education, "...there is no part of a child's work at school which some philosophic principle does not underlie". Lastly, we will have a Q&A time where we can further process what we've learned and ask any of those tough questions you may be wrestling with.
