Note: The picture study rotation was updated in July 2020. Some of the artists that were originally in the rotation were removed to make way a more balanced selection in terms of gender and nationality. This unfortunately had the impact of moving some artists around and you may have already studied the artists listed for this. We have included an optional replacement artist at the bottom if that is the case.
Monet is such a popular artist that you are encouraged to check out your library for a selection of books about his life and works. There are several lovely children's book.

Today Marjorie, Miriam and Jennifer discuss reading with Melisa Nielsen of Waldorf Essentials. Melisa is a Waldorf educator, parent coach, and homeschooling mother of 5 children, two of whom have spectrum struggles. The Waldorf approach to early education is very similar to Miss Mason's own approach. Both methods are developmental, experiential in nature and honor the individual child. Melisa comes with a wealth of ideas for helping parents teach reading.
Marjorie, Jennifer and Miriam are joined today with Crystal Hosea, creator of Legends of the Staff of Musique, a comprehensive music curriculum inspired by the unique environment of home education, and incorporating movement and art alongside the voice.
We hosted a Live a Q and A! Here are our responses.
On Part 2 of our discussion about singing and the Solfa, we continue our chat with RaeAnna Goss, singing teacher, homeschool graduate, homeschooling mother, and Charlotte Mason follower, who has created Solfa Sofa, an early years approach for introducing singing in a CM-friendly way. (Part 1 can be found here.)
We were also joined by Crystal Hosea of The Legends of the Staff of Musique, but we invited Crystal back for another episode about her own CM approach to combining story and music, which will air in a couple of weeks.
