This giveaway has ended–thanks for entering!

I am especially happy to welcome you to this weekend’s giveaway as it is a resource and company that has enriched my family’s personal homeschooling journey–Oak Meadow Curriculum and School.

Their uniquely creative curriculum includes:

· Creative, artistic assignments for all learning styles
· Lessons integrated across subject areas for added relevance
· Flexible weekly lesson plans to accommodate travel, artistic and athletic pursuits
· A choice of assignments to encourage meaningful student involvement
· Adaptable for different grade levels in different subjects
· Print-based and online alternatives

Oak Meadow’s philosophy of education is founded on the following principles of learning:

An Approach Built Upon Academic Standards

“We have thoroughly studied state standards nationwide and have effectively developed a curriculum that is in line with rigorous standards while maintaining our commitment to a creative, innovative, and child-centered education.

Involve the Whole Child

We believe that true education involves more than just the intellect — it engages and integrates every aspect of the child. Our curriculum includes assignments that ask children to read, write, and think, and also to paint, draw, play music, write poetry, and build things, encouraging balanced and healthy development.

Support the Natural Development of Children

An understanding of the developmental needs of children is the foundation of our curriculum. We are mindful of keeping subjects well grounded in a familiar reality for the young child, and we gradually introduce abstract concepts as the grades advance.

Adapt to Each Child’s Unique Learning Style

Our curriculum is written to accommodate visual, auditory, and physical learning styles and provides opportunities for all children to learn easily, successfully, and enjoyably.

Create a Caring, Supportive Relationship

Children are not simply empty vessels needing to be filled — they are intelligent, creative beings eager to express new questions and ideas. The key to encouraging this innate intelligence lies in creating a caring, supportive relationship.”

Oak Meadow offers curriculum packages for preschool through 12th Grade. They also have an accredited school program you can enroll in to receive full academic credit and support from an experienced teacher.

You can read my in-depth reviews of the curriculum packages for Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, and 3rd Grade. I also recommend signing up for the free Oak Meadow newsletter called Living Education.

Today’s winner will receive one complete Oak Meadow homeschooling curriculum package in your choice of grade K-8!

  41. Sarah G says:

    We are considering switching our daughter to homeschooling next year and would LOVE to try Oak Meadow’s 2nd grade curriculum for her!

  42. Catherine says:

    I started homeschooling my prek, 5th- and 8th-graders this year. I came across Oak Meadow early on in my search for curricula, fell in love, but then hesitated to invest in a whole program. I decided to piece things together myself, which worked out well in some regards, and not so well in others. When things got frustrating — especially in my quest for a competent, interesting, secular science program — I returned to Oak Meadow. We are now using Oak Meadow Science 5 & 8, and it has been a beautiful experience. I wonder why I ever doubted this. I would love to try more the sixth grade curriculum!

  43. Catherine says:

    I ‘like’ both sites on Facebook, too!
