This podcast is about the classical method, time-sensitive giveaways, plus some spiritual encouragement for those days when you feel like giving up homeschooling.

I’ll be explaining what classical education actually is – at least briefly- on this episode.

classical education

This is an information-only podcast, as I’ve discovered different methods that have worked for us throughout different times in our homeschooling journey.

The Trivium is divided into three stages:

Grammar  (grammatical) Stage

This is the foundational stage in elementary school years.  Kids in this stage are ready to absorb facts, facts, facts.  The focus during this period is on the “rules” of spelling, grammar, mathematics, science, and history.  Memorization is a big part of this stage.

Logic Stage

The facts they learned during the grammar stage are expanded upon.  Abstract thinking, critical thinking skills are a big part of this stage. This stage begins around 5th grade.

Rhetoric Stage

High school students learn to form their own opinions and elegantly express themselves through writing and speaking.
