I made something I think might bless you. The Big Maine Basket is a narration tool and booklist (with some extras included). If you are Charlotte Mason or classical homeschooling with narration, this is a great fit for you!

I Hope It Blesses You

Uses for this tool (THE BIG MAINE BASKET) I created:

-It allows readers to SYNTHESIZE what they are reading-It is a solid, consistent record-keeping tool for teachers

-It aligns with #charlottemason and #classicaleducation methods AND accounts for different learning modalities

-Its simplicity and predictability allow for short sessions (10 to 30 min. max), yet maximizes the time parents get with their children

-Being literature-based, it can be woven into any classical or Charlotte Mason curriculum, AND can cover multiple content areas (read alouds can cover so many different content areas)

-It can be easily incorporated into a morning time, with activities designed for different levels

So, for now, this kind of resource is completely FREE, until August 11, 2021!

Extra bonus: animals of Maine coloring pages (for littles) and an extension writing prompt and project (for the older kids)…didn’t I say it would be a great morning time element?

Our Maine Visit

In the meantime, I thought it would be AMAZING to visit a setting of the book, One Morning in Maine, written and illustrated by Robert McCloskey. I am a big fan of his. It was amazing. It was a beautiful Maine morning, the morning of July 5th. My husband and I were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary by visiting the Maine Coast. Think: Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor, Northeast Harbor, and some little, serene towns between there and Portland. We filmed a short tour of Buck’s Harbor (the setting of McCloskey’s book).

While shopping in Bar Harbor, I also snagged this TREASURE: Make Way for McCloskey: A Robert McCloskey Treasury.

All three of my kids love these stories! My husband remembers them fondly from childhood, as well.

Here is our YouTube tour of Buck’s Harbor:
