December

In December we take a break from a more classic approach to school.  We have been focusing on our Savior’s birth.  We do listen to many classical songs such as Handel’s Messiah (the whole thing not just the Hallejuha part).  We also celebrated St. Nicholas Day.  If you would like to know more about St. Nicholas this is a good website: http://www.stnicholascenter.org/pages/home/

So enjoy this season.  Relax a bit and start strong in the new year.  This is another great reason why you home school.  School can wait for a moment and precious memories can be developed.  Charlotte Mason writes about easing the child into learning through their natural wonder.  What a perfect time of year to cultivate that Wonder.  Merry Christmas!
