Trivium Tuesdays-Classical Link-Up #24

Welcome to another week of Trivium Tuesdays!  If this is your first time here, this is a link-up aimed at encouraging and informing other homeschoolers who use the Classical model of teaching.  Here we can share with each other and learn from one another.

Don't forget to visit the All Things Classical Blog Post Index if you are trying to remember a post that someone linked up or are just looking for encouragement or help on a specific topic related to Classical homeschooling.  I have organized most of the posts that you have linked up here at Trivium Tuesdays so that you can easily find posts on the topic you are looking for.

My first feature from last week is How Do I Instill a Love of Reading in my Students from Teacups in the Garden.  Don't we all want to raise children who love to read?  This post really encouraged me with ideas for how and why to promote reading in my home.  One specific idea she had was to make sure your children are watching you (mom) read for fun, not just when you have to.  To get other ideas make sure to check out the post!

My second feature is Repetition is Classical Education from Rachel's Reflections.  She talks about wondering how to visit ancient history again after studying it in a previous cycle.  She likens learning history to learning a song.  We listen to a song over and over, we learn it, come to love it, and soon it just plays in our heads.  Wouldn't it be lovely for history to just play in our heads like that?  Rachel has much more to say in her post, so link up and then go check it out if you missed it last week!

Now onto this week's link-up!

Here are the rules:
  • Your post must have to do (in some way) with classical homeschooling (any age children).
  • 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.
  • Remember, everyone loves comments =) So don't be shy, and tell someone if you liked their post!

I reserve the right to remove any link-up that does not have to do with classical homeschooling.         If you are a regular here at Trivium Tuesdays and have something to share that is a little off topic, but still would be an encouragement to the readers here, please still share it =)  I'm referring to people who are just trying to get their blog more exposure without following the rules above.

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!

  1. Remind me again what classical is please.
    I'm of the mindset that it's a lot of reading out loud, which we do.

    1. Marsha, reading aloud is definitely something that classical homeschoolers do, but it's more about what we are reading instead of how. It's reading quality, living books that teach us about our place in time. It's about studying history from beginning to end and connecting as many subjects together so that understanding of all of it is heightened. It's teaching in the way that your student is inclined to learn (Grammar, Dialectic, and Rhetoric stages). Ultimately it is teaching our children to know how to learn for so that they will leave our instruction with the ability to learn anything! If you have something that fits in with any of that, feel free to link up!
