This giveaway has ended–thanks for entering.
Welcome to Day 2 of Back to School Week here on Simple Homeschool!
Today I’m absolutely thrilled to introduce you to one of Simple Living Media’s sponsors, Oak Meadow Curriculum and School.
Oak Meadow offers two excellent choices for homeschooling families: PreK – Grade 12 curriculum packages you can purchase and use with your children, or the ability to actually enroll in their accredited school via distance learning, thereby receiving full academic credit and transcripts for your child’s work at home–as well as the support of an experienced teacher.
Oak Meadow has been in business for over 35 years, and their materials offer that wealth of educational experience to their customers. Their approach is simple: give children a safe, nurturing environment; provide creative activities for head, hands, and heart; offer each student respect and time to unfold naturally.
The staff at Oak Meadow are not just employees showing up to get a paycheck. Instead they are individuals who really embody the creative philosophy and passion for education that Oak Meadow stands for. This post, written by Heather at Beauty That Moves, describes her inspiring visit to the Oak Meadow offices in Vermont. Reading it gives a lovely glimpse into the ethos and values of this company.
Oak Meadow generously sent me an entire first grade package to review, and I’ve spent many happy hours exploring it!
The Heart of Learning, one of the foundational books in the K-3 curricula, is an inspiring read–and gives a fabulous, insightful overview into the heart of Oak Meadow’s philosophy. It covers setting up a learning environment in the home, mindful parenting, and creating an appropriate homeschooling schedule for the young child.
The first grade syllabus I received is divided into 36 weeks of lessons. The layout is professional, beautiful, and easy to follow. Each week contains information for circle time, language arts, mathematics, social studies, science, music, and crafts.
If the idea of imaginative, holistic home education appeals to you, but you don’t have time to piece it all together yourself, Oak Meadow may be the perfect solution for your family.
Today Oak Meadow is offering one lucky winner a complete grade level package of your choice, including all curriculum materials and readers (excluding the craft kit). This prize is valued at over $300!
