Back to School Giveaway, Jewish Homeschooling

Charlotte Mason Plenary Giveaway!

This week I am excited to announce a giveaway from the Charlotte Mason Plenary! It is always a pleasure for us to be able to highlight the business of another homeschooling Jewish mom. However, I am particularly pleased because I have known Rachel through Charlotte Mason homeschooling circles for years, and I have great respect for the way she applies Charlotte Mason’s principles. One of the things that will become clear very quickly when you go over to the Charlotte Mason Plenary blog is that Rachel feels very strongly that a Charlotte Mason education is based on Charlotte Mason’s 20 Principles and will look different in every home and family, depending on their needs!

Rachel has quite a few amazing products available on her website, and she is constantly adding new resources all the time! The winner of this giveaway will have his or her choice of one of ANY of Rachel’s DOWNLOADABLE products! Without further ado, here is a brief survey of what she has available!

If you find the idea of introducing your children to famous artists, never fear! These packets breakdown the subject of art appreciation into small doses and provides you with everything you need to do know in order to help your child develop a life long relationship with beautiful art!
If Charlotte Mason’s original writings from the early 1900s intimidates you, then this may be just the thing you need! Rachel and Ruk went through making the text easy to read, adding annotations concerning uncommon words and phrases, and other helpful notes and wise words of Charlotte Mason’s! Additionally they added some questions at the end of each chapter to get you thinking! This can be a really helpful tool to both the novice and the experienced Charlotte Mason homeschooler alike!
Ah Plutarch, that topic that strikes fear into homeschool parents! Whether you find Plutarch intimidating or just do not understand what possible relevance he could have to your children’s education, you need look no further than right here! Rachel is a strong proponent of teaching Plutarch! Not only did he write some of the earliest biographies on people who appear in our history books, but his biographies make a great study of character and citizenship. Are there other books that can assist in teaching citizenship? Yes, but this was the first book of its kind, and if we only take lessons from people of our own time or own perspective, where does that leave us? These guides especially make Plutarch accessible to families. Not only has Rachel made a point of laying it out in a nice user-friendly, step-by-step manner, but she has also made edits and annotations where necessary so you can hand this off to your child without any concern that the content might not be appropriate! You also don’t have to buy Plutarch’s Lives because it is all right here!! I have been nervous about starting Plutarch with my kids, but after reading through Rachel’s guide, I feel totally confident!
And…if you would like to coordinate your Plutarch studies with your picture studies, you can now do that too! I had never thought about doing this, but I can see how it might add some color to your Plutarch studies!
For your younger students who might not yet be ready for Plutarch, we have Rachel’s updated and revised America First by Lawton B. Evans. America First is a well written early American History book, but given when it was written, it was in severe need of updating, especially some terms we no longer use.
And now for my favorite product, Rachel’s planning guides! If you feel overwhelmed planning your school year and you need some tailored specifically to your family, then you are going to want one of these guides! We, at Ani ve-ami, like what Rachel has done here so much that we are working with her to create one tailored specifically to Ani ve-ami. In the meantime, I cannot recommend this guide enough. Rachel breaks down what a Charlotte Mason curriculum should look like and why. Then she helps you look realistically at your family’s needs to create a plan that isn’t overwhelming.

And finally, if you need further help planning your school year, Rachel is available for consultation!

  1. I really like the CMP form guides and wouldn’t love to try some other things! Thank you for the giveaway!

  2. – I just downloaded the Publicola Plutarch guide. I added my fifth grader this year and was interested in trying a guide out.
    – I learned that the Long and Stewart translation used in the guides is directly from Greek. This could possibly make them more accurate than North’s translation from French that Charlotte Mason recommended in her day.
    – I am interested in the Pericles guide now. I also am very curious about the America First book.
    – I have liked the CMP Facebook page and am part of CMP FB group.

  3. Y’all! ❤️ Thanks so much for the kind comments about The Plenary! And so many new people joined the Facebook group this week, I love it! Thanks Ani-ve-Ami for introducing more people to The Plenary. I’m excited to find out who the winner will be! Yay!!!
