Giving Your Kids a Global Perspective

Hey friends!

I can hardly believe that we are almost done with our Morning Time series! Next week, the Summer Book Club starts! I will be partnering with Kids Learning for Life to bring y’all a live video each week as we discuss Charlotte Mason’s book “Home Education” (volume 1 in her home education series). You can find all the details about that here

Today I’m talking about how to give your kids a global perspective. I shared a bit about why this is so important to me over on my Youtube Channel today (link below). In this post I’m going to be sharing all the tools that I use!

Here are the tools we use each week:

The Voice of the Martyrs makes a free Global Prayer Guide that is AWESOME. You can have them mail you a paper copy or you can access it online. I didn’t mention this in the video, but I also highly recommend signing up to receive their free monthly newsletter. It will encourage and challenge your family.

Any atlas will do (these are typically an easy find at thrift stores and used book stores).

This book is a GEM. Highly recommend owning a copy so you can reference it often. These photos are the next best thing to being able to fly around the world and visit with families yourself. 

A great book to pair with your morning time if you’d like to incorporate geography. This book is old and written in England, but still worth reading aloud to your kiddos!

My favorite resource for finding books that relate to the particular country/region that we are learning about each week. Jamie also gives so many practical and encouraging ideas for making the world a part of your everyday life.

Any map will do. Just make sure that it’s easy to read and displayed somewhere in your house that you can reference often. Ours is hanging right in the middle of our living room.

Having a globe is especially helpful for hands-on learners! Plus, it’s just fun.

TTYS, friends!
