Finding Morning Time was the best thing that ever happened to our homeschool. Some days, we only do Morning Time. Read Alouds are the central part of our time together before my son completes any independent work. We sit on the couch, meditate, then rotate through books, picture study, memory work (which my son actually doesn’t view as work at all,) music, and Latin.
When we sit together and enjoy our basket, I feel that my son is actually learning and retaining things that are close to both of our hearts. No more tears, no more struggling to get started, we are beginning our day with something joyful and engaging.
