Form 1B: Beginning Reading

"Let us recognize that learning to read is to many children hard work, and let us do what we can to make the task easy and inviting." 

“And all the time we have books, books teeming with ideas fresh from the minds of thinkers upon every subject to which we can wish to introduce children.” 

“Therefore, the selection of their first lesson-books is a matter of grave importance, because it rests with these to give children the idea that knowledge is supremely attractive and that reading is delightful. Once” 

- Charlotte Mason

As I'm currently in the trenches of deeply researching and learning all I can about teaching a child to read the Charlotte Mason way I felt like this subject would be one of the first I'd start collecting resources for and helping to make it less of an unknown to so many of us that are starting out on this journey.

I've taught a beginning reader the regular way before with an all in one curriculum and I thought I had an idea of what I was doing, until I started to question all the tears and decided this time we'd try Charlotte's way and encourage as much as we could of finding the delight.

If you're like me and have curiosity and desire pushing you towards the beautiful road of learning to teach Charlotte's way I hope these resources are just what you need.
