Rea and Greta's Second Annual Literature Soirée
Saturday June 30, 2018
9am to 4pm
The Monday Club, San Luis Obispo, CA
Greta and I are so excited to announce our Second Annual Rea and Greta's Summer Literature Soirée! Yes, it's happening again, and this year we are doing some fun twists on our event that we think will make your time here even more relaxed, inspiring, and meaningful! We have chosen some topics that we have dialogued about over the last year, and we think will be timely for you as well. We are hosting it again at the beautiful Monday Club, because, well, as a clubhouse built by California's first woman architect, it just goes so nicely with our theme of equipping ourselves and our children to be the best they can be!
We will be meeting Saturday, June 30th from 9 am to 4 pm at the beautiful Monday Club in San Luis Obispo located at 1815 Monterey Street. Doors open at 8:30 am for registration. Tickets are $50 and non-refundable but transferable. Price does not include lunch, but we will have the amazing Farmhouse Corner Market providing delicious sandwiches, salads, and other fresh options for purchase.
And yes, we will have a meet-up at Scout Coffee (880 Foothill Blvd) on Friday evening at 6 pm. Come out for a cup of coffee or tea while enjoying the company of other like-minded mamas and make some new friends!
*No cancellations within 10 days of event. If within 10 days of event please contact email@example.com.
Here's what we'll cover:
this joint session, Rea and Greta will be talking about teaching art
history in your homeschool. They’ll
each share their own stories of how art history came to be of value
to them personally and why they believe it is a valuable subject to
add to your homeschool studies. They’ll
offer practical lesson ideas, ways to incorporate art history into
your school days with the youngest kids to your high school students,
and, of course, a book list! We know you’ll
find this session to be both practical and inspiring.
Schooling in Times of Doubt by Greta Eskridge
this session, Greta will be sharing from the heart about
homeschooling through hard times. It is something we all face, but
when we are going through it, we often feel very alone. Greta shares
about teaching a child struggling mightily to learn to read, and how
the worry of that struggle impacted her marriage. She offers
practical advice, encouragement, and hope in the face of hard things.
Best of all, she reminds you that no matter what you are facing in
this journey of homeschooling, you are never alone.
Skills For Spirited Children
this joint session, Rea and Greta will share their own experience
raising passionate children. They’ll
share the joys and frustrations of educating and parenting kids who
deal with intense emotions. And they’ll
offer practical solutions that they’ve
found to be helpful with their own children as well as a book list of
resources, followed by a Q & A time. We hope you’ll
find it to be both encouraging and timely.
American History Through Literature by Rea Berg
pathos, passion, and power, of America’s
story, is one that continues to capture the imaginations of students,
historians, parents, and teachers alike. From the saga of the
Pilgrims plight in their pursuit of religious freedom to the courage
of the Founders in their defiance of Britain’s
tyranny, there are so many stories that bring delight and
inspiration. But for many of us, these stories are not adequate to
cultivate the understanding of America’s
complex makeup of racial, religious, and cultural diversity. How can
we, even as parents of young children, assure that our children have
a love and appreciation for all the stories that make up the tragedy
and the triumphs of America’s
story? This session will explore ways to cultivate a deeper and
broader understanding of our history.
