Weekend giveaway: Oak Meadow

This giveaway has ended. Thanks for entering!

Welcome to another weekend giveaway, sponsored this week by Oak Meadow.

In their own words:

Curriculum packages—dubbed “curriculum in a box” or “boxed curriculum”—offer homeschooling parents a complete curriculum for a full year. Some parents feel they have struck gold when they find a curriculum package that suits their child.

Many other homeschoolers, however, think that curriculum packages are too confining, too rigid. They think, “Curriculum in a box? That’s not for creative types like us.”

Think again.

Oak Meadow was designed with flexibility at its core. Offering uniquely creative, open-choice assignments, Oak Meadow encourages learners of all types to become engaged and enthusiastic.

When students are studying Ben Franklin, for instance, they might make a quill pen, vegetable ink, and parchment paper before writing a speech to the Continental Congress.

When learning about animal classification systems, they spend time digging in the garden for specimens, drawing what was discovered, and then researching the similarities and differences between them. Choosing varied, hands-on experiences makes learning more relevant, not to mention much more fun.

With an eye towards the artistic and imaginative, Oak Meadow understands that there are many ways that arts, handwork, woodworking, and other crafts can enrich a homeschooling program. If students are given a choice of hands-on projects, this dynamic experiential learning will help them develop skills that will enhance their academic studies.

Why spend time with endless worksheets or doing hours of desk work when the same learning goals can be accomplished in a way that is more memorable and more meaningful? Taking the lessons from page to practical application can make a huge difference.

Letting students explore a subject from many angles keeps learning fresh and lively, and gives students experience in creative problem solving, critical thinking, and making meaningful connections across disciplines.

Curriculum in a box that encourages thinking outside the box—that’s the Oak Meadow way.

Today’s winner will receive one complete Oak Meadow homeschooling curriculum package in your choice of grade PreK-8! (That’s a value of $120-$420!) 

Each curriculum package includes everything you need for an entire school year, including lesson plans, assignments, activities, and readings. This is a wonderful opportunity to craft a comprehensive and imaginative education for your child!
