Your Morning Basket Special: Plans For Your Morning Time



Morning Time planning. I bet there is a good chance you either love it or hate it.

Or even if you love it, you might also be one of those people at a season in life — newborn, toddlers, new to Morning Time, BUSY — that still doesn’t want to spend much time actually doing it. You know, though, it is important.

In this special episode Dawn, Jessica, and I chat about Morning Time planning — why it is important, ways to make it happen, and how we can help you out with a special new product if it isn’t something you want to do. Enjoy!

    18 years ago when I stumbled onto Charlotte Mason, I thought I needed some together time int he morning with my two boys before going into seperate academics. It was then that we created what we called “AM Opening” . based on things I learned inn reading books from other CM mothers , we designed our program with what you now term loops. I am so grateful you have put together this podcast, I have enjoyed listening and adding more new exciting things to our opening time as I continue homeschooling our last child. This year we changed our title to ” morning time” for all those mothers out there wondering if you will make it through, stick to your inspired plans for your children. With God on your side, things will fall into place and all work out. I am grateful for the seasoned homeschoo moms that told me that when I was in the “trenches”.

      I’m getting ready to start up on Monday and I have a whole lot of MT work to do. Thanks for the encouragement to stay the course! We’re so glad you’ve been encouraged by the podcast!

    Is there a link to the multiple loop blog post? It’s not linked above and I tried to google it but didn’t come up with anything about multiple loops. Thanks! Loved this episode!

    Can you share the name of the drawing book you use during your read aloud time? This is the perfect answer to my problem of boys constantly drawing variations of ninjas every day.


    • Dawn Garrett says:

      This is not every day. We do drawing as part of our beauty loop, so it’s 1 out of 6 days. For Drawing instruction, we’re working slowly through Art for Kids: Drawing (aff link). One other day they work on their counted cross stitch while I read at the end of Morning Time. We might have done better to start with some of the Usborne “how to draw” books, but we keep on keeping on.

      Ninjas don’t sound too bad 😉
