Trivium Tuesdays - Classical Link-Up #1

Welcome to the very first edition of Trivium Tuesdays!  I am very excited to be hosting a link-up where classically minded homeschool bloggers can share with each other and learn from one another.

Each week, you can link-up your posts that directly relate to classical homeschooling in some way.  Topics could include (but are not limited to): what a day in your home looks like, book recommendations, specific projects/assignments your children are doing, a re-cap of your week, an encouraging word for other classical homeschoolers, etc.  Then take a minute to see what everyone else has picked to share!  I think that this could be a great place for all of us to learn, share, grow, and be encouraged in our classical homeschooling.  If you are not 100% classical in your schooling, that is okay!  As long as your post fits the classical model (using living books, teaching history chronologically, copywork, dictation, etc.) that is just fine.

Since this is the first week, I thought I would share just a bit about myself.  I have been intrigued by the classical model of homeschooling since before my first child was born.  My children are now three and (almost) two and we are getting into the swing of homeschooling, doing it classically wherever possible considering it is just preschool!  I am excited to continue in this homeschool journey and to learn more about the classical model as I go!  So far, my biggest source of information on classical homeschooling has been Classical Christian Homeschooling, but of course I am inspired by other sources as well (such as Simply Charlotte Mason's Memory Box system!)  Now I'm  looking forward to getting to know a little about each of you through these link-ups!

 Here are the rules for the link-up:
  • Your post must have to do (in some way) with classical homeschooling.
  • Your post may be from your archives as long as you only post it one time on this link-up.
  • Please link to your direct post, not your blog in general.
  • Please place my Trivium Tuesdays button (found on my right sidebar) on your blog post so others can learn about this link-up!
  • It may be helpful to state in your link description what stage of the trivium or what subject your post is about, if applicable, so others can easily find posts they are interested in looking at.

I will visit each of your blogs this week and feature my favorite link-up for all to see next week!  Also, if your blog has a button I will place it on my sidebar (under Friends to Visit) for the week until it is replaced by the next week's favorite =)

Happy Linking!
