This expansion and complete overhaul of Gentle + Classical Nature Volume 1: Inland Waterways and Forests has been created to make Charlotte Mason's "Formidable List of Attainments for a Child of 6" all the more attainable without overwhelm.
This Teacher's Guide is complete and assists you in understanding Charlotte Mason's methods, trains you in teaching nature study to children K4-7th grade in a Charlotte Mason-inspired way, all the while encouraging you and loving on you (the Teacher!) as you go.
You'll find the new format easier to use and understand, and you'll love the new/expanded book selections and additional 6 units.
NOTE: If you are purchasing the Gentle + Classical Nature Volume 1 Digital Bundle, this item (digital) is already included!
This Teacher's Guide includes 2 parts. Part 1 is all about your education and encouragement of heart and mind. Part 2 is the actual nuts and bolts of the curriculum, covering 18 nature-focused units. (Click Scope and Sequence below for unit topics.)
Each unit includes a nature focus while also integrating opportunities to learn a foreign language, practice a handicraft, recite beautiful poetry, study a walk/view and "body of water" for weeks until you've created lasting memories, and learn to recognize 6 birds, 6 trees, and 6 wildflowers (local to North America).
Who's it for?
This Teacher's Guide includes memory statements for 3 "levels" and more detailed content for Levels 1 and 2. Due to this, you can utilize the content of the Teacher's Guide for students K4-7th grade. Student Notebooks (sold separately) are currently available for Level 1 and 2 students only.
(Level 3 Student Notebook will release in 2021 and will include its own book list and activities.)
