I'm an avid reader, as I'm sure you can tell. Especially if you read my post back at the beginning of the year listing the books I wanted to read by year's end...
I've made progress on that list but I don't foresee actually getting through it. Especially since I'm barely reading at all these days and the ones I could say I'm actually currently ACTIVELY reading are not ones from my list. Sigh.
There are other books I'm reading...but not so actively - meaning I've started them and they ended up in a stack of other books I've started but got sidetracked because , well, I started others. It's almost an addiction... book stacks....
But here is what I'm Currently ACTIVELY reading:
2. Charlotte Mason Education: A Homeschooling How-To Manual by Catherine Levison- I'm hoping that Ms. Levison's book will at least put in my mind the key points of Charlotte Mason's methods.
Yep....that's it. For me , that is really an extremely short list. But I'm still unpacking...and searching.... Have I mentioned that I have unpacked (not put away and organized mind you...but ) the majority of our boxes and STILL can not find my son's Leapfrog LeapPad???
This is a small computer like toy that he uses for educational games and BOOKS that I've downloaded for him. He is not addicted to it like a lot of kids are with electronic games but we really like it for trips in the car, appointments and for use in general places that he has to sit for longer periods of time than usual.... So anyway... I can't find it. It seems to be gone. And that really really bothers me (obviously since I've seem to have found a way to rant about it here in the middle of a post on reading and books....)
So yes, that's my current book list.
I'm really eager to read more of the Charlotte Mason book. I've just started it and can only get in half a page or so here and there. I truly am falling in love with this method of homeschooling. I just don't know how to shake off all those years of public schooling from my memory and let it completely fall to the wayside... I guess I won't completely. But I do really want to change my approach for our little guy. The way he's picking up on 'making words' right now is delightful!!
I also hope to find more time this week to read the chapter on time management in the workbook....ain't that a hoot! Need to find time to read about time management.... I guess that's a big indicator that I really do need to read it!
So What is on your current ACTIVE reading list?
