Charlotte Mason en ESPANOL!!!

This Blog is excellent!  All the information and ideas I am used to seeing in many of the English language blogs, but in Spanish.  A real resource for Spanish speaking homeschoolers!

Este blog es excelente! Toda la información y las ideas que estoy acostumbrado de ver en muchos de los Blogs sobre Homeschooling, pero en español. Un recurso verdadero para los que eligen educar en el hogar de habla hispana.  

Because the right to homeschool is not a given everywhere!


  1. Thank you Mama Goose. I'm glad you like my blogs, specially the Spanish one.
    If you ever have anything in particular you'd like for me to write about in English or Spanish, let me know.
    Thanks for joining the Por el derecho a Educar en el Hogar

  2. Your so very welcome. I was very excited to come across your blog, and have been on the hunt for Spanish homeschooling blogs, curricula, books, materials of all sorts... I do see myself moving more and more in that direction as of late, since it is certainly harder to find, but oh so very needed!

    I really appreciated Por el Derecho a Educar en el Hogar and another blog I came across, one from Spain, and also an article from Mexico. I just read some information about some of the difficulties African-Americans often encounter when explaining to friends and family about their decision to homeschool, and I thought, at least there is not the language barrier. For many Spanish-speaking people, whose relatives have never heard of homeschooling, the task is that much more formidable.

Shelters & Dwellings: Nomads of Asia

We moved from nomadic cave dwellers to nomads of the Asian steppe- the Mongols!  We have learned a bit about their way of life and how they built their homes.  We copied this chalk drawing of a yurt and will attempt to build one with felt.

We will have spelling and vocabulary based on this topic and maybe a few math problems too - especially once we begin to build our yurt.  We will have some Mongolian food,some salty tea, and copy a map of the country, and read about Marco Polo and the famous Khan.

Resources for this portion of our block:
The Adventures of Marco Polo by Russell Freedman and Bagram Ibatoulline

Traditional Houses from Around the World by A.G. Smith How We are Sheltered by James F. Chamberlain Houses of China by Bonnie Shemie

To see the previous lesson in this block, look at the entry for Cave Dwellers.

First Grade Math: Sums - Matematicas de primera clase

Here is something that I found pretty neat!  Triangle sums (and differences too.)  These are fact families, written on a triangle.  We used old watercolors, and cut them into little triangles.  Each corner gets one number.  It is a nice visual for the child to see that the three numbers are related.

Aqui es algo que pense era bien divertida!  Sumas en triangulo (y para restar tambien.)  Usemos acuerelas viejas y la cortemos en triangulos.  Se pone el numero en cada esquina, y es buena manera para el nino ver la relacion entre los tres numeros.

Shelters & Dwellings: Cave Dwellers

Carrying on in our study of cave dwellers, I completed a new chalk drawing for our next lesson.

Since we started with Altamira and Lascaux, and since this is a region I am more familiar with, I decided to stay in the area for the time.  We are looking into some of the caves of the Mediterranean.  It was really a wonderful thing to study, because I was able to use my own photos and books that I had acquired while travelling.  The first hand aspect brought things to life in an amazing way.  

We focused on the island of Menorca, with its caves, Necropoli, Talyots and other stone structures that show how early peoples there lived.  I remember one place even where there were water drainage areas, which were essentially round depressions in the earth, which were used to collect and filter water, pretty state of the art for 2000 BCE.
