An Example of Masterly Inactivity

Charlotte Mason coined a phrase "masterly inactivity" where the teacher gives her students whatever they require and then gets out of the way and lets the students experiment and create what they will, overseeing but never interfering.

Here's an example from my littles today: StringBean drew and cut her own paperdolls while LegoManiac designed his own puppets. Pretty cool, huh?
