"'Education is the Science of Relations'; that is, that a child has natural relations with a vast number of things and thoughts: so we train him upon physical exercises, nature lore, handicrafts, science and art, and upon many living books, for we know that our business is not to teach him all about anything, but to help him to make valid as many as may be of––
'Those first-born affinities,
That fit our new existence to existing things.'"

Charlotte Mason, A Philosophy of Education

That Resource Site $50 Giveaway

Have you visited That Resource Site for free printables, lapbooks, lesson plans, or articles?  Their collection is large and growing!  And they have quite a give-away underway: a $50 gift certificate to Amazon.  You can enter up to 4 times by writing a blog post (like this), subscribing to their feed, liking their FB page, or simply leaving a comment about their site.  Of course publicizing it decreases my chance, but that's O.K.--That Resource Site is worth telling people about.
