1.2 Free: New Charlotte Mason Magazine – Online – Current Issue Available Now

Miss Mason was a 19th- and early 20th-century educator in England who empowered parents to teach their own children. This valuable resource will aid any homeschooler or parent who wishes to enrich his children’s educations–and it’s free! See this online magazine, along with all the other resources, accessible in the upper left sidebar of the webpage when you open the link.

1.3 The Teaching Home – End-of-School-Year Activities

See suggestions from The Teaching Home for ways to wrap up the 2012-2013 school year and celebrate another successful year of home education, and then change gears as we head into summer. The “pioneers” of homeschooling a few decades ago had to pay for these magazines; now today’s generation of “settlers” can benefit. Don’t miss it!
