I am using the Original Homeschooling Series, Volume One, Home Education- the pink books.
Charlotte speaks highly of Baden Powell’s book “Scouting” and explains that it’s content is a great skill to learn for young children and families alike. She talks about how one groups sets an ambush while the other must discover them without being noticed.
It’s a wonderful skill when applied to nature study.
With “Bird-stalking” all the skills of a accomplished scount cme into play! Teaching children to scout out birds for observing in the most steahily of ways is rewarding. They will see and hear things they wouldn’t otherwise with this skill and will come to care about the animals and nature that they observe.
My takeaway from This Week’s Charlotte Mason Reading
First, I am going to look for the book she recommends. Next, I realize that my family needs practice to become better scouts. Quiet, still observation will reward us with sights and sounds we otherwise would not witness.
