I am a CM student too

A glimpse of my process in reading a book.

I doodle, write narrations, and do copywork on whatever book I am currently reading. It takes time, diligence, and focus. The very habits that I am trying to help build in my children. Through this process, I am able to understand how hard narration is, how effective copywork is, and how doodling makes it all fun :) I follow all the rules that I apply to my kids: I only read through a portion once and in short doses, I narrate and retell all the details I can remember, I add in some insights, and I just let my thoughts flow without disruption. I visualize when I do copywork, making sure that I write in my best, and take notice of every punctuation, sentence structure, spelling and capitalizations. 

I too am a CM student, and I am loving every bit of it :)
