My kids are 6 and 3 and I’m interested in Oak Meadow because of its connection to nature and hands on/movement focus. My kiddos thrive with both of those aspects in their daily life!
I am now the proud Nana to Four beautiful Grandaughters 5,4,3,1. My daughter-in-law is looking for home school curriculums and cost is an inhibitive factor in choosing. I used Oak Meadow through the first four years when I homeschooled my own kids (6 of them) primary schooling. Although they all attended public school for their high school years, those first 8 years were life affirming and left a profound impact on each of their life choices,. Oak Meadow was a gift of guyidance and a joyful inspiration for me and I my children blossomed from it. I would love to give this gift as an alternative to my daughter-in-law to help her begin her own process of learning & growing with her children, rather than just being their ‘teacher’
My daughter is 12 and we want to homeschool with Oak Meadow because we are looking to learn with an inspiring and loving curriculum.
My kids are 10, 8, 6 and 3 and they love being outside. They are always on the go and love to be doing things and learning things!
My younger kids are 12, 10, 9, 8, 6, 5, and 3. They absolutely love everything about the outdoors- the critters, the foliage, the sky- everything. They also have vivid imaginations, so this would be a wonderful curriculum for them.

My kids are 6, 8, and 10. The completeness of the curriculum appeals to me.
My kids are 9, 6 and 5. Oak Meadow appeals to me in it’s child centered approach.
The kids for whom I’m primarily interested in Oak Meadow’s products are 5, 4, 4, 3, 1, and 1 . . . but I think my 6 and 9 year old might really enjoy it, too. And I have a 14 year old using one of their high school language arts courses and their photography elective this year. We’re working really hard to learn how to slow down and wait patiently for growth, and I think guidance from an Oak Meadow curriculum would help us.

This would be perfect for my boy ages 7 and 4. I’ve heard such great praises about Oak Meadow. We love the sound of a child centered complete curriculum!
So excited to see who wins!
My kids are 11, 7, 5 and 2. I’ve used oak meadow in the past and have loved how simply it is laid out and easy to follow. I would love a chance to win the grade six package for my eldest who is ready to take on more independent work-it looks amazing! Thanks for the chance!
My kids are 11,10,7 and 5, and I think they would love the way nature is integrated into the cirriculum.

My kids are 10, 8, 4 and 2 and I love the completeness of the completeness of the curriculum and the focus on nature. I particularly like the pacing….the lack of hurry.
Shared it on Facebook.
My son is 5 years old. What I love about Oak Meadow is that it expands on his natur curiosity. I feel like it will lay a foundation for a lifetime of loving to learn!
My kids are 9 and 9. Both of my girls love all things outdoors so a nature/activity based curriculum is sure to keep their curious minds engaged!
My children are age 8 and 10. Friends recommend Oak Meadow.
My kids are 7 & 10 and Oak Meadow appeals to me as a base curriculum and go to resource to establish routine at home
I shared on facebook.
My children are 12 and 8. I especially like Oak Meadow because of the emphasis on nature study.
My daughter is 8. I have been wanting to try Oak Meadow since we started homeschooling 4 years ago. The nature based aspect is so appealing to my daughter. She can go exploring outside all day if I let her. I love her creativity she gets from nature.
I have two girls, 5 and almost 3. I love the idea of having a loose structure to follow that ensures a wholistic approach to learning. Hands on activities, nature focus, the arts, empathy and character development along with the basics would mean I’m not scrambling to hodgepodge it together like I am now as I make a plan for kindergarten this year.
My kids are almost 4 and 1. Love the nature connection in this curriculum!

What a wonderful giveaway! I have a 4, 3, 18month old and one on the way. We are just starting to contemplate homeschool curriculums and one that emphasizes being outdoors sounds exceptional!
Will share on facebook also 🙂
My kids are 7, 5, and 1. They love being outside and are always full of energy. Hands-on learning is best for them.
My children are 7 and 17. My youngest loves the outdoors, we walk every chance we can. In the winter our challenge is to be the first barefoot in the first snow. And then we have hot chocolate. We set up outside times and learn new things and spend time talking. I could really see how this curriculum could benifit my youngest.
My son is 6.5 and my daughter just turned 1. We used Oak Meadow for my son’s first year of homeschooling (Kindergarten) last year and loved it — it was a perfect fit for him and our whole family. We appreciate its gentle approach (we did not want to rush academics) as well as the way the curriculum is seasonal and nature-based. We believe that living = learning and Oak Meadow is very compatible and supportive of that philosophy!
We have a 9 and a 7 yo. What I really like about Oak Meadow is the way nature is integrated for the younger grades.
My kids are 11 and 15. I love OM’s emphasis on handwork and good books. Thanks for the giveaway!
My kiddos are six, four, and four months. The hands on aspect is amazing!
Ann-Marie’s latest post: Seven Quick Takes (Vol 254)
My two are 9 and 4 and they both love Oak Meadow. It is beautifully laid out using weekly planners and learning assessments that are so helpful for busy moms! Oak Meadow is well structured in Math and Sciences yet it’s delivery is creative and flexible and appeals to our ever changing interests and focuses. We don’t feel like we are in “school” with OM but are instead on a journey through our world!
My kids are 12 and 8 and I believe this curriculum would be a perfect match for them.
My daughter is 5 1/2. I like Oak Meadow’s secular, multi-sensory approach for the younger student’s curriculum.
My children are 13.10,7,4 and 2. What appeals to me about Oak Meadow is the thoroughness of the curriculum. Thanks for the giveaway!

I’ve been thinking more and more that my middle child would enjoy a Waldorf style education that nurtures her imagination and introduces lessons ever-so gently

I have a 6.9 and 3.3 year old and oak meadow appeals because of the hands on multi sensory and nature based program they offer.
My kids are 9, 5, and 3 and I love Oak Meadow’s focus on nature! I am woefully deficient in getting them out into and experiencing nature enough!
I love that it’s hands on and children can go at their own pace, it would be great for my 6, 4, and 1 year old (when she’s ready)! Thanks for the chance to win!
My children are 27, 24, 18, 15 and 13. I am primarily interested for my 13 year old son because he needs a curriculum that allows him to learn independently and at his own pace.
My kids are 13, 10, 8 and 6. I love oak meadow. I have used it in full before and even was able to purchase part of it this year for one of my children. It is so wholesome and art rich!
My kids are 6.5 and 3 I love how it’s designed based on weeks and it isn’t too much to do who kids do not get overwhelmed! Live nature emphasis too
I have 11 living children that range in age 19 to 2 (10 of them school age)…I like the fact that oak meadow’s curriculum not only addresses the traditional educational subjects, but gives suggestions for structuring their day. That has been my single biggest challenge with home education, and have found myself trying new approaches every year, usually from eclectic sources. To have it all in one place, would be wonderful!
My 7 & 4 year olds love being outside, Oak Meadow would be the perfect fit.
We are a Waldorf inspired homeschooling family with kids ages 12, 10, 8, 5, and 1. I have admired Oak Meadow for many years!
I love Oak Meadow because of the variety of tools used in the curriculum. I also love the nature oriented part of it. My son is an all around type learner. No one format fits all for him. I think this curriculum would be great. Thank you for the opportunity.
My kiddos are 8, 6, and 3. We would all love the emphasis on nature and activities in the outdoors.
Thanks for the chance to win!
I have three kids, aged 3, 5, and 7. I’ve read about Oak Meadow online several times after following links from several homeschooling blogs, including Simply Homeschool. The experiential, nature- and arts-focused curricula seem perfect for our family!
My littles are 6,4 and 1. I love how interactive Oak Meadow seems to be especially in regards to nature! We would love to give it a try!
My kids are 10,8,6,4,2 and I’m interested in Oak Meadow because it’s what my best friend uses and she makes it sound AMAZING!
I have 6 children ages 19, 16, 13, 11, 7 and 4. I particularly like how Oak Meadow has a focus on slowing down and enjoying nature.
My children are 6, 4, 3, 2, and 6 months. We love the gentle approach to academics and the nature-inspired curriculum. Makes learning a joy 🙂
We’re a Waldorf-inspired homeschooling family with my son who is 8 (almost 9) although my 15 and 23 year olds have used different hs styles. I’ve looked at Oak Meadow for years and I think it looks wonderful – the hands-on activities and our favorite, then nature focus. We’d love to spend a year with Oak Meadow!

Our Family loves Oak Meadow for it is nature based and self-paced approach. The incorporation of ART is equally admired and appreciated. Our 11 year old is hoping we can continue this approach for her 6th grade year. Crossing fingers and saying a few prayers that her wish is granted. Thank You!
My daughter is 11 and one of the things I love about Oak Meadow is the chose of activities to complete at the end of a lesson.
My boys are 8, 4, and 8 months. We LOVE Oak Meadow and how it fosters a joy of learning, discovery, and exploration for the whole child in the whole world!! Would SO love to win!!
My son is 12 almost 13 and I like that Oak Meadow supports parents who are supporting independent learners.
Tina Newlove’s latest post: Newlove Studio, 2016 Summer Update!
My name is Austin, and my kids are even 11, nine, three, end two months . The thing I’m really liking about Oak Meadow is that everything is done… but it sounds like it would be really flexible for someone like me … I am a big unschooler for the first little bit of my kids’ lives, and we do all kinds of play and read aloud and lots of fun stuff… But nothing formal . Now that my big kids are bigger we have a more formal curriculum. However I have come up with all of our curriculum… and I like it that way… But I just started teaching two French classes and two math classes for homeschooled & public school families… So now I’m a little worried I’m going to fall behind on getting the kids’ curriculum pieced together every month. I like the idea of having something prepackaged that I can use to be organized and to be effective but still have the time I need to really spend time with the kids instead of spending all of my time on planning.
My daughter is 11 and this would be her 6th grade year. She loves art and writing. Oak Meadow appeals to me because it seems to build on the talents and strengths she has. She also gets to choose how she wants to show her learning.
I shared on FB!!
My sweet babes are 7 and 8. I love the gentle, holistic approach of Oak Meadow. Thanks so much for the opportunity!
My kids are 9,7,6, & 4 and I just purchased the full grade one curriculum for my six year old. I’m excited about Oak Meadow for the emphasis on nature and hands on learning. It would be amazing to win another year of curriculum as the cost of shipping and the dollar exchange really added up to a lot! What a great giveaway.
My girls are 17, 12, 9 and 8. I love that this concept of learning seems less chaotic. It’s seems peaceful to be self directed. I’ve tried making other techniques work, but it just caused more stress…….this seems to be the way our family is leaning.
My daughter is 13 and going into “8th” grade. We have used Oak Meadow in the past and she loved it. What I love about Oak Meadow is it offers solid curriculum, but leaves plenty of room for children to be unique, to express themselves, be creative and original. There is nothing standardized about it, yet it I can use it confidently, knowing my daughter is getting everything she needs in many different aspects and areas of her education.
My kids are 13, 11 and 9. I would love to try the high school classes with Oak Meadow!
Sharon’s latest post: Falling
My boys are 10 and 4. They are addicted to nature and learn best through hands on styles of learning. The Oak Meadow curriculum looks like it would match their styles very nicely.
My children are 11,11 and 9. I haven’t ordered curriculum yet. It’s confusing every year. I would love an all in one especially for one of my twins who craves a more organized experience.
My son is 6. I love the nature aspect of the curriculum and already planned out for ne.
My children are 8. I love that Oak Meadow emphasizes nature and allows them to be hands on. It has a much gentler feel to it that is very appealing.

My kids are 7 and 9, and Oak Meadow’s strong nature tilt has always appealed to me!

What s great giveaway. Thank you for the chance to win.
My children are 7, 5 and 20 months. I am super interested in Oak Meadow because my older two have up to this point been attending a wonderful local nature based independent school. This will be our first year homeschooling and I feel like Oak Meadow would be a perfect marriage of what we loved about the school and what we hope to accomplish having them at home.
My girls are 5, 6, and 7 1/2. I like how you don’t have to do the same subject every single day for younger children and the cute rhymes to say with them in the mornings as well.
My children are 7, 9, and 11. I have used Oak Meadow in the past and we all love their gentle introduction to the days studies and the reading selections. My daughter loves the stories of the math gnomes!
My children are 12 (just turned 12 this morning) and 13. I love Oak Meadow for its gentle focus on the whole child, how it incorporates nature and art and creativity into all things, and just its overall simplicity and beauty. We would be so blessed to receive this curriculum!
My kids are 8, 5 & 3 and the relational, restful aspects really appeal to me.

My oldest is starting kindergarten. We are all about nature! So to have a curriculum that comes alongside our interests would be awesome. We are just starting out – which seems so daunting to me!
My kids are 2.5 and 5. I love the idea of making the most of the outdoors and truly thinking “outside the box” with education
My children are aged 12 down to 4. I love the whole person part of this curriculum. He doesn’t just deal in academics.
My son is 6 years old and I like that Oak Meadow is a full curriculum that provides a whole-child education
My child is 7. I love that the curriculum is so simple and complete. Beautiful!
My children are 11 and 7. The overall simplicity of this program appeals to me, but more importantly, it’s connection to the natural world is what I would describe as this programs largest asset!

My children are 13, 12, 7, 5, and 3. The thing I love most about Oak Meadow is the focus on the simplicity of life, nature and more guided learning. I love the style of teaching.
My kids are 10 and 12. I would love such a nature and heart centered curriculum.
My kids are 7 and 8 years old.
Oak Meadow appeals to me
Because it seems soo gentle and natural. Not like doing traditional school at all, more of natural learning through life 🙂
Hen is 7. We love Oak Meadow as it creates and supports critical thinking skills & independence.
I shared about this giveaway and Oak Meadow on Facebook.
The younger ones are 6 and 4. My 6 year old in particular is a hands on learner, very in-tune with nature and curious about everything! I’m impressed by this comprehensive curriculum which I feel will challenge my kids without overwhelming them.
My children are 4, 8, and 11. I’m so drawn to Oak Meadow as I want nature to be the central of all of our learning and only recently have been really looking into it! Would be a wonderful blessing!!
Shared on Facebook! ????
I love the focus on the whole child and on learning from nature. I have a 7-year-old, a 5-year-old, and a 2-year-old.
My kids are 9, 7, and 4. Some of my friends when I was growing up used Oak Meadow! I have been interested in Waldorf since we started homeschooling.
My son is 4 1/2, and what I love most about Oak Meadow is its gentle approach and great support materials! Thanks for the chance to win next year’s curriculum!
My children are 2, 4 and 5. I am homeschooling my 4 and 5 year old this year for kindergarten. I like that Oak Meadow incorporates nature and health.
My guys are 9 and 7. Love Oak Meadow for its emphasis on nature, individuality and creativity.
My children are 6 and 4 – both boys. My wife and I searched high and low for a curriculum that matched our deeper views. We’re Buddhist, so we look to something that develops character first and lets learning arise more naturally. With these virtues developed – simplicity, honesty, integrity, love of nature, working with one’s state of mind, emotions and inner world, instruction through story, love of learning and much more – we made a strong and happy decision to go with Oak Meadows.
We are very happy with it and hope to get the ensuing curricula.
My boys are 7 and 5 and I have an infant daughter. I love the sound of oak meadow and have actually looked at it several times! My kids love to be outside in nature and I believe in play based learning. Homeschooling is freedom and it should be fun!
My children are ages 9 and 4 (entering fourth grade and preschool). I am very interested in trying and experiencing the Oak Meadow curriculum. I like the curriculum we currently use, but I find that I am supplementing a lot. Also, I am intrigued by the approach of more independent learning. I love to teach my children and am very involved, but I am finding that my oldest is not developing that natural sense of curiosity and drive that I am trying to encourage. I would love to give Oak Meadow a try and see my children grow as learners and discoverers – especially in nature! I am always looking for ways to peak their interest outdoors!
My kids are 9, 7, and 4. Oak Meadow appeals to me because it is a complete curriculum with a gentle approach.

My kids are 7 and 3. I love how Oak Meadow is a flexible full curriculum with an emphasis on nature.
Hi, I am just officially starting homeschool this year for my 5 year old son. He loves learning he loves the outdoors, and I want to always be able to give him the best education, so he can presue his dreams and follow his heart. I hear so many wonderful things about Oak Meadows and it would be great to start a cirriculum with them:)
My son is 11. I’m interested in Oak Meadow for its emphasis on the whole child, nature and art focus, and that it covers all the topics we need to cover for the year.
My kids are 15, 13, 10, 7, 5, and 2. I would love to do more hand on learning with them, as well as more time outside. Oak Meadow sounds like a great way to do that.
We actually used Oak Meadow one year and we loved it! I haven’t been able to afford to purchase it again, so this giveaway would be a wonderful opportunity for us to use it again!

My children are 8, 11, and 13. I love how Oak Meadow encourages independent learning and incorporates hand-on projects.
My two girls are 3 and 8 and months. I am interested in the preschool curriculum at Oak Meadow because of the emphasis on nature and the outdoors. the process seems gentle and I think the outdoors aspect will really be excellent for my daughter. if we don’t spend time outdoors each day, she insists on eating on our back porch! (we live in an urban environment and have to seek out nature often).
My kiddos are 8, 4 and 3 and I am interested in Oak Meadow because of how flexible it is. I can use it with all of my children in a very on hands manner!
My kids are 6 and 3….Oh my Oak Meadow is a dream.
I have loved them ever since I found your website. I love how its centered on the child’s approach and they want school to be joyful.
It seems so natural yet still has a great curriculum for children to learn from.
My girls are 9 and 11 and there’s a good possibility my 9 year old will be homeschooled this year. She has horrible allergies and they give her asthma attacks and she missed so much school last year that I was getting letters from the truant officer over it. So I really would prefer to just keep her home with me until we get it under control. I’ve researched a lot of homeschool curriculum and Oak Meadow is tied for first place for best with us. I think it’s such a great program.
My boys are 10, 6, and 20mo. I love the structure and freethom I get all at the same time. I love the nature, all the crafts. Ist just easy and fun to use! Thank you!!!

I just glanced through the Oak Meadow curriculum and…. Wow! I could use this curriculum for all of my kids. My kids are 11, 9,7, and 3. I love that this is a whole person approach to learning.
My daughter i s 7, and loves to spend time in nature. We have been Waldorf-inspired since she was a baby. Oak Meadow curriculum packages have been on my wishlist for a long time. Our family would be blessed to win. Many thanks for this giveaway!
Our children are 1, 5, 6, 8, 10, and 13. I really enjoy how oak meadow takes into account the whole child and not just academics. It’s more a lifestyle while educating your children well!
My kids are 10, 9, 7, and 5. Oak Meadow looks like a fun and beautiful curriculum. I’ve heard a lot of people say they love it and I’d like to give it a try!
My kids are almost 8 and 3. I love that Oak Meadow is a complete curriculum, perfect for Waldorf-inspired homeschoolers.
I have three daughters, ages 11, 9 and 5. If we were so lucky as to win this giveaway, I would choose the 4th grade curriculum. My 9 year old is a very hands on learner, she loves art and crafting, and can spend all day outdoors. So the concentration on all these things in Oak Meadow is what appeals to me.
Oak Meadow would be awesome for our 4 year old daughter and 10 year old son. I love that it is complete and brings in nature/outdoors and crafts (an area I struggle most with).
Thanks so much for this opportunity!

holistic curriculum appeals!
Hello! My kids are 14, 11, 5, 3, and 1. I am interested in oak meadow because i have seen how the harsh environment in the school sytem affects the growth of a child, my older two went to public school and i can see how the lack of creativity , nature and spirituality can leave them feeling empty and stressed. I am determined to give my children a more peaceful, spiritual and creative learning experience and environment, i believe oak meadow curriculum would provide a great guide for me and my family
Hello! My kids are 10,7, and 4. They are active, engaged learners and thinkers, and oak meadow appeals to me because of its pace, connection to nature, and beauty:)

My kids are 7 and 2. I would appreciate OM for the ability to help me structure our day so the children intuitively connect with life and the natural world while growing academic skills. Beautifully prepared and there’s recorder lessons!
My kiddos are 4 and 2. We currently live abroad in Central Asia, and as I gear up for homeschool I’ve fallen in love with the idea of a great outdoor education with so much hands-on experience that our children will have the benefit of living here. Oak Meadow is especially appealing to me because of the nature integration. I am attracted to the guidance of a regular flow of the day, because it seems well-thought out and intentional. And lastly, I recently read a book about the importance of good habits for children, and the reference to “rhythmical activities” throughout the day reminds me of this concept. It’s a powerful tool for homeschooling mothers, I think.
My child is 15 and we would absolutely love to win this! We appreciate the opportunity with this giveaway! Oak Meadow sounds wonderful, especially how it is geared towards nature and to the student themselves.
My kids are 6 and 4. I bought a used copy of Oak Meadows’ pre-k books years ago and they were such a big help when my kids were younger. I would love to continue using this curriculum with my son who is autistic – I think the gentle, slow approach is exactly what he needs. Thank you so much for the chance!
my kiddos are 9 and 12. we love oak meadow! i don’t know what i would have done if OM wasn’t there when i withdrew my 3rd grader half way thru the year from a waldorf school. the OM3 curriculum was there to catch us. thank goodness!
I have a 6 year old and almost 5 year old (I also have a 3 year old and newborn). I love the nature aspect of it.
My kiddo is 9 and she loves the outdoors and being able to actively explore what she learns about. I love the fact that this is a complete curriculum!

I have nine children ages 11, 10, 9, 8, 6, 4, 3, 1, and 1. I have been looking at Oak Meadow for a while now, and I love the natural learning style and rhythm it introduces them to. I would love to be able to start my younger ones with the Oak Meadow curriculum!
My kids are 9 and 5, and I love Oak Meadow’s focus on connecting the child to the natural world.
My children are 14 and 8. I love how Oak Meadow focuses on the whole child. The flexibility and hands on projects are perfect for my children!
I homeschool my two girls age 6 and 8. I would love to win this curriculum package. Oak Meadow sounds perfect for my girls because they love all things nature, animals, and they love reading. I like the way this curriculum is strong academically while also being able to excite the learner.
My kids are 6 and 9. The reason I like Oak Meadow is its emphasis on nature, and the natural progression through learning. I have emphasized to my children that it is good to be “independent scholars”.

I have 4 kids, ages : 7,6,4 and 2. I have been feeling very overwhelmed with homeschooling and want to make sure I am doing everything right. We have no family to lean on for support so I have been doing this on my own. My husband and I have decided to homeschool because of the negative and harsh impact and effects a public school environment can bring on a child. We want to protect them as much as we can for as long as we can! Our first year we used online school for my oldest 2 and that wasn’t our best fit. I am looking for something where I can have some structure in a daily planner and curriculum that will give me ideas and help me in the teaching part, but also something that gives my kids a chance to explore on their own and have fun in doing so!I really like that it is nature based and will give my kids that chance to explore, which I know they love! I downloaded a sample lesson and I really loved the approach and pace that was set. I have been really lost on what curriculum to use and after reading about Oak Meadow it sounds like a great resource for us and I would love to win this giveaway so we can start to explore this avenue! This would be such a blessing! Thank you for taking the time in reading this and thank you for your blogs and emails it has helped a lot in giving me ideas and opening my mind in ways and resources to teaching my kiddos.
My girls are 12, 9, 6 & 4. This curriculum seems like a bit of the many types of homeschooling I love- but put into one! Just learned about it through Simple Homeschool fb page :). The girls are nature lovers and, as a parent of girls, want them to be well-rounded & introduced to all aspects of things in and out of home learning. What better way than to teach them in a well-rounded indoor & outdoor way 🙂 Thank you for the opportunity.
My girls are 6 and 4. Oak Meadow is so age appropriate and focuses on the simplicity and wonder of childhood. Thanks for the chance!
My boys are 8 and 3. I love that oak meadows seems to be nature based and more hands on.
I have 3 boys, ages 6, 4, and 2, and what I love about oak meadow is how hands on and natural it is. my boys absolutely love and nature and creating things with their hands, this is the perfect curriculum for them!
My son is 4 and my daughter is 6.
I used Oak Meadow for part of the year with my daughter last year and then felt pressured to go down a more “academic road” for the remainder of the year. When we were doing Oak Meadow, our home was calmer and more centered and I really feel she was happier. She’s been asking me when we are going to do things we did with Oak Meadow again. I would love to start using this curriculum again, but feel compelled to continue on with the other costly curriculum materials I purchased first. I would love to have serendipity intervene so we can get back to Oak Meadow sooner. 😉

My kids are 2, 5, and 6. They love to be outside and a nature based education is perfect for them!
My children are 8.5 and 9.5. I took the oldest out of school because of his ADHD issues, and lack of needed attention in the public school system. The personalized attention that comes with schooling the kids at home appealed to me for both of my sons, so last year was our first go at home schooling. Since the beginning, I have been interested in Oak Meadow. We didn’t try it last year; however, because it just wasn’t in our budget. The reviews about how flexible and hands-on the curriculum is, and the positive feedback I’ve read from other parents who have children with similar issues as my oldest son, has primarily driven my interest in Oak Meadow.
Shared! Also my above comment was supposed to say My boys love science and nature. ????
My boys are 9 and 7. What I love about oak Meadow is that it takes into account teaching the whole child and their emphasis on nature.

My children are 10, 8 and 5.
I love that Oak Meadow is gentle, yet thorough. I love that it feels connected to life, not something that has to be done. I love that it provides such a balance of structure and freedom. I would also love to use it now as I now have significant health issues and yet want to continue homeschooling. After the last year, our primary focus is on re-connection; with each other and with the world around us.
My boys are 5 and 7 and we love Oak Meadow’s focus on nature.
I have an 11 year old boy and 6 year old girl. I love that this curriculum focuses on nature. What an adventurous way to learn!

My kids are 2, 4, 6, and 9. I love that Oak Meadow is nature based and very hands on.
I like the Waldorf influence of Oak Meadow and that it incorporates art, which I which I am not naturally good at. My kids are ages 14, 11, 8, 4, and 1.
My daughter is 5. I’m most interested in Oak Meadow because I’m looking for ways to incorporate nature into our homeschool.
My children are 11, 14, and 15. My youngest is an active boy who never wants to do anything related to sitting still. This looks like a gentle but educational route that would be a great help with 5th grade.
13 & 14, they love hands on and nature, love how it’s tailored to the kiddos interests yet still covering vital subject information.
My kids are 5 & 4. I like that’s it’s hands on and nature based.
They are 8-15. I like the emphasis on nature.
Pam / Hey, Miss Adventures!
My daughter is 3yo and has been out camping since she was 6mo. The mountains, trees, ants and butterflies excite her — so does the beach and the sand and everything else. She’s one curious explorer and I would love for her curiosity to never go away even if it means being constantly bombarded with “Why?”

10, 5, and 1. I love the idea that it is nature based!
I am most interested in this program for my 7 year old second grader. This is our first year homeschooling and I really like the child-centered and nature-filled approach of Oak Meadow. As a full time work from home mama I am also really impressed with the completeness and ease of using this program.
I found this program a few years ago love the assistance with curriculum and themes, children are the future of this our sacred planet. Sorry to say, it was not in our budget so we have tried to create our own unschooling outdoor and nature based curriculum with a large waldorf influence. My son 10, and I are active outdoors people and something like this program might just be a great fit for us.
We thank you for the opportunity to enjoy all that you put together here on your site it is a huge commitment. Let us know if you are planning a giveaway of your new book again soon as we would love to enjoy that as well.
Enjoy the day, Michelle & Damon.
This would be so awesome! My son is 1 and daughter is 4, so kindergarten is right around the corner for her. I love the respect Oak Meadow has for the fleeting, precious years of childhood. What a treat it would be to win this!!!
I would like to win this giveaway for a friend of mine. She has been fighting with me to legalize homeschooling in Malta and she will be pulling her 4 kids out of school this year trusting that things will sort themselves out during the coming school year. Her kids are 11,9,5,3 and has been wanting to purchase this for her older kids but has been waiting for some sort of approval from the ministry…we will be meeting them next Friday, before she makes this purchase. If I could present her with this I am sure it will be amazingly encouraging for her to get started and it would be an great way to show her my appreciation for her support during the past years
My kiddos are 10 & 12 and I’m a firm believer in hands on learning. Having fun while learning helps kids remember what they are learning!
My daughter is 2nd grade this year. Oak Meadow is different in that it doesn’t seem so academic. Of course, it covers all the academics, but it does so in a more thoughtful integrated way and definitely eases into it in the younger grades much better than “typical” curriculums. One of my favorite things is how Oak Meadow is nature centered!
My kids are 7, 6, 4, and 6 months. I like the nature aspect of Oak Meadow.
We did Oak Meadow for preschool. Ilike the simplicty and nature aspect.
My children are 6, 9, and 11. I like the curriculum for my 7th grader in particular. I also find the website informative and easy to navigate.
I have a 4 year old daughter and I like the variety of learning options Oak Meadow offers, that we can personalise and align to the child’s interest. The beauty of the well-rounded curriculum is also the flexibility and freedom it allows for us to homeschool our child, anywhere we travel.

What a lovely giveaway! My children are 11, 9, and 5. I have always been curious about Oak Meadow’s beautiful, child and nature centered approach.
My kids age 5yr girl, 3 yr boy and 7 month boy all love the outdoors. They would enjoy the gentle hands on nature inspired curriculum and so would I. Learning should be fluid with play and exploration and I believe oak meadow would allow this methodology.
My kids are 2 and 6. This is my first year homeschooling and I love the structure of the Oak Meadow curriculum. I also love the nature aspect. We wanted something that was a good mix of Waldorf but something that also covers all of outcomes for the grade level.
My kids are 5 and 7. This curriculum would be wonderful for both, but especially for my boy who is quite the reluctant learner. He is in need of a gentle, activity based curriculum.
Shared on FB!
My kids are 1 and 4. I love Oak Meadow for including lots of nature and outdoors!
My kids are 8 and 5. We love oak meadow! We’ve used it for the past two years! It gives my kids a great approach to learning that respects their love of nature. Yay!
I have two sons, ages 12 & 11. Oak Meadow appeals to me because both of my boys are very hands on learners who like flexibility and creativity in their curriculum and Oak Meadow is both flexible and creative with just the right amount of academic focus.
My kids are 7, 5 and 2. I live the emphasis on good books and nature. I would love to use this for my son especially!

My child is ten, soon to be eleven. We love the light structure, and built in playfulness that allows the student to blossom in their own time.
My kids are 11 and 7 and this is our third year with OM. We love the gentle nature of the early grades and well everything!

What a fantastic giveaway! I love Oak Meadow for the pace of learning, immersion in nature, and creative ways of learning. A lovely curriculum! We have used 1 & 2, and would love grade 3! 🙂

My daughter is soon to be 6. She loves the outdoors and greatly benefits from learning hands on. Something like this would be ideal for our learning style!
My kids are 10, 9, 7, & 5. Oak Meadow appeals to me because it has so much nature in it! I would especially love to use it with my oldest who is autistic. Shared!
My son is 11. The ease of schedule in the Oak Meadows curriculum and the nature centered learning appeal to our family.
My kids are 5, 3, and 1 and the oak meadow curriculum fits right within our values and goals for homeschooling by incorporating nature and play based learning. We found a wonderful cirriculum with these values ( the homegrown preschooler: a year of playing skillfully) but sadly it is only for preschoolers and I’m looking for something for kindergarten and beyond.
Shared to Facebook.
My kids are 7, 4, and 4 mo. I like the whole child approach of Oak Meadow.
My kids are 5 and 6 and we are interested in Oak meadow for many reasons. Mainly my children are both super into nature and learn well with hands on. And I love the whole child approach to learning.
My kids are 5, 8 and 11. I love how Oak Meadow includes and nature and handcrafts. Thanks!
My son is 8 and my daughter is 1.5yrs. We love life learning and outdoor learning, but also like to have some structure in our routine. Oak Meadow would be such a great addition to what we are currently doing. Thank you!
My son will be 5 and starting k. I have admired Oak Meadow since I began looking at homeschool choices! I love the philosophy of Waldorf but not as.a purist to all ideas. I love the natural, simple and following child development offered. And so grateful those of us not in North America can have a chance so hope I don’t end up spending so much on shipping!
My kids, two have graduated, are 21, 19, 16, 12, 9, 7, 5, 3 and 1.
Oak Meadow sounds peaceful and appropriate for our family.
My daughter is four and doing kindergarten level work. I have been putting off buying curriculum, because she is four, but I know she’s ready. I have two younger children – 2.5 years and 9 months old. We have been heavily considering using Oak Meadow. I love the outdoor focus and the Wardolf inspiration. Given the young kids in the house, I’d love a program that’s ready to go and can still meet her individual needs. I would LOVE to win this 🙂 Thanks so much for the opportunity to enter!

My kids are 17, 9, and almost 5. Oak Meadow sounds like a great curriculum to get kids interested in nature and learning. Thank you for the opportunity to win this.
My kids are 10, 8 , 6, 3
They love the outdoors and I’d love to use a curriculum that centres our learning in nature.
Thank you 🙂
My kids are 9, 7, 5, and 4. My nine and five year old will be attending a Montessori Charter School this coming year where my seven year old daughter has also attended. As we make the transition to homeschooling with her, I feel that Oak Meadow could be the perfect curriculum to use. I love the gentle, nature-based, hands on approach that fits in with our family values. The approach also, I feel, would work very well with her personality and learning style.
My kids are 4, 2 and 2 months. I love imagining a playful, rich, free, nature-inspired education for my kids and think Oak Meadow could provide that.
My kids are 4 and 5. I love the nature focus in Oak Meadow’s curriculum- it’s something I definitely want to incorporate more of in our daily activities!
I have 3 kids age 2, 6 & 8 & oak meadow has peaked my interest because it is nature based and that it’s focus is on learning through play with is one of the most effective methods of teaching and of retention. Kids are only young once & we have only a short window of time to impress upon them a good foundation of learning that will affect them the rest of their lives.
My two homeschooling kiddos are 8 & 13 (and I have two who are older). I am interested in Oak Meadow for it’s understanding and respect of the whole child as well as different learning styles.
This would be a dream come true!! My girls are 7 and 4 and love nature, animals, crafts, and anything artistic. Thank you so much for this giveaway!!
I shared on my personal facebook page too 🙂
My kids are 6 & 4. I love Oak Meadow’s philosophy and approach. We are big outdoors people and the focus on nature meets the importance we place on it within our family. Both my kids are very hands-on learners and Oak Meadow fits perfectly with their learning styles. Plus, my nurturing mother self loves the focus on their souls and hearts, not just brains.
My kids are 7, 5, 3, and 8 months. I’ve had my eye on Oak Meadow for a while. I love how natural and hands on it seems to be. I also love their approach to beginning math!

Wow! What an opportunity! We would LOVE this curriculum due the nature study. We just love to be outside. Our children are 9, 7, 7, 5, 3, and 1????
I’m a homeschool graduate, a teacher by profession, but now a stay-at-home mom to 3 children, ages 4, 2, and 7 months. I put together an eclectic preschool curriculum that is very hands-on, and it seems that Oak Meadow might be a good fit for our family’s style.
My kids are 4 and 5 and I love that this is nature based and hands on! We are just starting homeschooling this year and are still looking for the right curriculum!
What a beautiful giveaway, thank you so much for this chance! My kids are almost 3 and almost 7 🙂 for me Oak Meadow’s approach represents many things – flexibility, closeness to the nature, focus on the heart. I love how OMs learning process is build around the areas that children love – storytelling, crafting, discovering. And most importantly it’s an amazing way to help them be comfortable with their own inquisitive nature.

My daughter is 13 🙂 And is very creative 🙂 I feel Oak Meadow would allow her to expand her creativity and natural curiousity and learn in her style while having an excellent grounding in reading, writing and arithmetic 🙂 Thank you so much for this amazing opportunity!!!

My children are 8, 5, 3 and 5 months. This curriculum sounds very interesting and I would love the chance to give it a try!
My kids are 13, 6, and 5. Would love to try Oak Meadow! Love that this is child centered and involves nature!
My children are 10, 5, and 3. This is our second year homeschooling. I love the freedom we have in our schedule now but I get discouraged with a multitude of random workbooks. I would love a more play based program that understands child development. Oak Meadow sounds like a great option for us!
My boys are 6 and 8 and we attend a Waldorf Inspired Co-op two full days a week. We love our co-op and I would love to carry over some of the Waldorf Inspirations into our learning at home. What I love about Oak Meadow is that they are a perfect mix between Waldorf and more traditional schooling and the schedule is laid out for you! We would love to be gifted with this! Thanks!

My kids are 7 and 4. I love that Oak Meadow has a hands on approach and uses nature to inspire kids.
My twin boys are turning five this year, and their little brother will be two in December. I have a background in Waldorf education, but I feel the way it is traditionally done is not a 100 percent match for my kids. I’ve been looking into unschooling but it feels a bit too unstructured for us. I was very excited when I found out about Oak Meadow, it love the rhythms and naturenconnection paired with a more self-directed learning approach than old-school Waldorf. Would be amazing to get to try this for Kindy!

My children are 6 and 8. We used Oak Meadow for the first time last year. I was really impressed with the completeness of the Curriculum and how easy it was to use with 2 kids. I was originally attracted to Oak Meadow because it is waldorf inspired and also every thing is all laid out.
My sons are 4 and 7 and I like the hands on and nature elements of Oak Meadow.

My children are 8, 5 and 3. Oak Meadow appeals to me because it encourages a love of nature, and allows plenty of time for the Arts.
My children are 8 and 5 and I would love that Oak Meadow is nature based play learning. One of the most important goals for my homeschool is that my children learn the awe and complexity of nature. That they can grow and learn through connecting with our world, through nature.
My kids are 10, 6, and 1. They have vivid imaginations and love to be outside. I like that this curriculum encourages both of those things.
My kids are 1, 3, and 5. I’m intrigued by the comprehensiveness of the curriculum… good for someone who doesn’t know where to start!
My kids are 4, 3 and 1 and all love to be outside and all things related to nature. I’m now really interested to see if this is a good fit for us! Especially as a family that needs a gentle approach!
Wow, we have been considering curriculum from oak meadow for two years now. We have a fellow co op member who spoke to us and said they thought it would really suit our 5 year old son. We would love this opportunity to try with our son. What draws us to oak meadow is the gentle approach that highlights nature and the connection we share with it and each other.
My children are 5 (almost 6), 4 and almost 1. I love that there’s a large nature component to the curriculum.
My son is one and I love how Oak Meadow melds nature into the curriculum.
My kids are 8, 7, and 4 and I love nature aspect of the curriculum.
My kids are 5 and 7. I am very interested in Oak Medow for a variety of reasons. Like many I really love the involvement of nature in the lessons. For me however, the main reason I would like to try Oak Medow is it’s only my second year homeschooling and I’m still feeling a bit shaky. I like the idea of a complete curriculum that may make organization easier for us. I also like this is a multi sensory curriculum which will keep them engaged.
I think Oak Medow would be a wonderful fit for my family. It would be absolutely incredible to be able to try it.
My kids are almost 7, almost 5, 2 and 7 months. I love Oak Meadow’s holistic approach to education.
My daughter just turned 5 and I am excited about Oak Meadow because it seems more genuine than other curriculum. Getting back to nature and being free is so needed for our youth right now.
My girls are 7 and 10 years old. The OAk Meadow curriculum appeals to us because it is nature based taking slow steps to really immerse yourself in learning while belonging to the rhythm of the natural world.
My girls are 13 and 8. I’may really interested in Oak Meadow because of the nature based learning. I looked at sample lessons and I am really impressed with the curriculum.
My kids are 3 and 5… My daughter is on the spectrum and I think OM would be a perfect fit for her learning needs.
My boys are 3 and 5, with a surprise baby due it October. The are ever curious about the world and are all this nature. This is our first official year homeschooling and I looked into Oak Medow several times as my husband and I planned our year. I loved their connection to nature and gently ways of learning, not to mention the help that is available to you when you need it. Unfortunately we couldn’t cover the cost and it actually made me cry a few times, but I still have the catalog in my homeschool binder and dream of a someday.

My kids are ages 14, 12, and 7. Oak Meadow caught my eye because of its focus on a more holistic and gentle approach to education, but at the same time taking the burden off parents so they don’t have to find their own way through all the options out there and still provide some relief with regard to accreditation and record keeping.
My children are 11yrs and 16yrs old. I love the way Oak Meadow does the studies.
My boys are 10 and 12. This will be our first year homeschooling. I think that this program would be good for first timers and I like the sounds of nature based curriculum

I have been eyeing off Oak Meadow curriculum since long before my eldest reached school age. I love how it’s nature-based, yet not too far from the traditional schooling that I’m familiar with; and a complete curriculum to boot! My children are 5, 3 and 1.
I have a 5-year old and I’ve been interested in Oak Meadow for a few years now. I already draw a lot of inspiration from Waldorf philosophies and we do many Waldorf inspired activities at home. I would love to expand on this inspiration with a full curriculum!
This is our first full year homeschooling and we would love to start with Oak Meadow.
I am homeschool mom to a 5 and 7 year old. Oak Meadow’s living approach is simple, fuss-free, easy to execute and quite frankly inspiring for me as the teacher. It covers all of the subjects including music. The planner and assessments are bonus features I need in my life.

12, 10, and 4. I’ve always wanted to try Oak Meadow out because of how natural and hands on it is.
I have a 5 year old, 3 year old and 2 month old. I like the fact that it is child centered & nature based. I would be interested in starting out with the K curriculum. As a new homeschooler, I like the parent support as well.
My 2 daughters are 5 and both have Down Syndrome. I have looked at this curriculum before and loved it for the earlier ages because of its emphasis on outdoor education. I would love to see how this approach would help my girls in every area of life and have a greater appreciation for nature.
We have a daughter who will soon be 4 and a son who is 6. What appeals to me about the Oak Meadow curriculum is that it is nature based and hands on. Those aspects of early learning are so important. Thanks for such a wonderful giveaway!!!

My son is 4 1/2 and I love that Oak meadow is flexible in that they get to pick how to express what they have learned. Art, drama, writing, etc.
I have a 9 year old daughter, a 7 year old son and a 5 year old daughter. Were in Australia, and I haven’t heard of anyone in my area using Oak Meadow. It sounds great! I’ve never tried a full curriculum before and I wouldn’t mind trying one out. Nature based? Sounds fun!
Our kids are seven and ten years old. We live in a spot where the lakes and woods meet, but are still near rolling prairie. We’re already interested in the surroundings & would love to know them better. I am excited to know more ways to play and learn! It’s too easy to revert to the traditional way I was taught.
My grandson is 5 and I love how the curriculum is nature inspired. I want my grandkids to develop wonder about the amazing world!
My son is almost 5 and I love how gentle the kindergarten curriculum is. There’s no rushing to cram kids full of information kids in 1st or 2nd grade should be learning like public school does.
We are about to start our first year with OM and I love how seamlessly it integrates into our day!
My kids are 9, 7, 7, 4, and 2. I love the flexible style of Oak Meadow, and how arts and crafts are incorporated into all subjects and also the emphasis on nature!

Thank you! My babies are 16,14 & 11. I’m very interested in the options you offer for high school as they seem unique and that’s what we look for! Out of the usual is so very rewarding. Thanks for the chance!
My guys are 7 and 9 and a friend of mine shared with me the curriculum she just purchased for her children. I love how it’s all planned out for the parent and child by the week and allows for flexibility and further studies.
I just shared it on Facebook in my homeschool group ????
My children are 14, 10, and 7. I have seen some copies of Oak Meadow curriculum and I love the attention to detail it gives to each subject. The upper grades are very thorough!
My children are 9,8,6, and 3. Oak Meadow’s mission and philosophy appeal to me. It focuses on the child in a very holistic manner. And I like how their material is catered to homeschoolers.
My kids are 13, 11 and 7. I am interested in Oak Meadow because my son has Aspergers and one of my daughters is a true nature girl. This curriculum appears to be very thorough with a gentle approach. Which would be very beneficial to my children.
We have 3 kids – 7 year old boy, 3 year old boy, and an 8 month old girl. This is our third year homeschooling with Oak Meadow. We work on a farm for a living and love how OM uses nature to teach and has a friendly feel to it.
My kids are 8, 6, 5, 2, and 1. I’d love to win this. I’ve looked at Oak Meadow curriculum before and like what I see and would love the opportunity to try it out!
My girls are ages 3, 5, 6, & 8. What appeals to me most is that the younger years are based on imagination, hands on, and fun ways to learn rather than traditional sit-down-and-do-boring-school learning. It seems like it fits really well with my philosophy of education, and I would love to teach my girls this way this year!
Also, shared on Facebook!
I have all boys ages 11, 10 and almost 5. This curriculum appeals because we love learning with hands-on activities, good literature and beautiful, natural materials.
My son is 5 . Oak Meadow’s curriculum would greatly complement his crafty and nature-loving sides.
I have a 5 year old, a 3 year old and a 5 month old. I love how hands on the oak meadow curriculum is. Thanks!
My son is almost 8 and I love the idea of a more nature-based learning.
Wow! What a fantastic giveaway and thank you for including your international readers! My kids are 7 and almost 9 years old. What has appealed to me and why I would love to try this curriculum is the child-led curriculum with a nature-based focus (which would especially appeal to my son) as well as the arts-focus (which would especially appeal to my daughter). Thank you for the opportunity!
I have a seven-year-old daughter who loves learning on her own terms (she would like to learn how to create her own games on Roblox and Minecraft). I’m hoping that this curriculum you’re offering will catch her fascination and wanting to learn more about the world around her.
My son son is 7. Oak meadow appeals to me because the pace of the work and the focus on artistic expression seems realistic and enjoyable .
My oldest is 5 and we homeschooled for preschool. I love the Waldorf influence in oak meadow curriculum and think it would be lovely to use for my daughter’s kindy year
My son is 5, and having a nature based, hands on, exploratory learning experience is important to us. I would love the opportunity to delve into oak meadow as it has been recommended to us by other families.
My girls are 9, 6, and a toddler. They love the outdoors and creation investigations. My 6 year old has some learning challenges so OM gentle approach is appealing, especially since it includes some of her strengths – concrete observation, music and movement, and storytelling.
My daughter is 5. What appeals to me is the hands on connection to nature!

My daughters are 5 and one and I love that it’s an all in one curriculum. That’s very important to me.
My children are 7, 4 and 11 months. I love that this curriculum is so hands on. My daughter doesn’t have a great love of learning right now, and I’d love to change that.
My boys are 5,3, and newborn and I love how nature is incorporated in the Oak Meadow curriculum and it seems gently paced for appropriate child development.
My children are 6, 3, and an infant. We are interested because of the nature connection and hand on elements.
My kiddos are 10, 8, 5 and nearly 2. I have always found the nature and art focus of Oak Meadow , as well as the gentler pace and approach, to be very appealing!
My kids are 7 and 5. Oak Meadow appeals to me because it us beautiful and fun!
My boys are 5 and 8. I love the nature based studies.
My kids are 5 and 7. I like that the curriculum is full of nature and art.
Hello! I would love to have this for my 8, 7, 5 and 4 year olds! The Oak Meadow Cirriculum would be beneficial to our already interesting unit study this quarter, and I’m sure beyond. When I asked my children what they wanted to learn this year, they were asked to write down their ideas. One asked for a study on camping and the other asked for wilderness survival training. We have begun our unit study and it has already been an adventure, they all love to learn how to explore and study God’s creation, but I need some help on my part. So for me, this would be a great help!!! Thank you for wanting to bless anyone of us! Blessings!
My daughters, Josiana Grace and Aviella Faith, will be 4 and 1 in October. This curriculum appeals to me because it’s “child-centered, nature-based, playful, hands-on”. This is perfect for my Threenager, and just what I’ve been looking for. She was a high needs baby and is very strong willed. She also has sensory differences. Even though her personality is extremely challenging to parent now, I know she’ll be an amazing adult! The most important bonus for me, is that I see you’re a Christian. It was prophesied that she will be like Katherine Kuhlman, so that’s our code word for especially challenging days!!! ????????????
My son is 5 and we will begin homeschooling this year. I would love the support of a full curriculum as I begin, and I love that Oak Meadow is very flexible and focuses on relationships.
My son is 5. I feel strongly that the best education is on where he is free to explore his own interests and all of it in nature. Some of life’s most beautiful lessons can be learned in the outdoors when you are free to play. Oak Meadow has always peaked my interest.
My son is 5 and my daughter 2. It looks like Oak Meadow approaches homeschooling in a way similar to what I plan to implement: learning through play, reading, and hands on activities.
My school aged child is 9. I like Oak Meadows’ nature based hands on curriculum. It happens to be the only curriculum we’ve used that my daughter was excited about.
I will be spending precious time with a 7 and 13 year old for home study this year. The set-up looks extrememly helpful and easy to implement. I think the assessments are a super way to track how the child has progressed. I looked at the 7th/8th grade curriculum and liked that as well. The Civics for 8th is somethng I would love to use wtih my 13 year old. This is such a wonderful giveaway. A plusis that it’s in Vermont and not too far from home. Thanks to Oak Meadow.
This is such a wonderful gift for someone! I’m homeschooling my two children, ages 7.5 and 4.5 and have been using waldorf curricula along with a child-led, interest based learning approach. I can see that we need a curriculum that is still holistic and nature-based in its approach but with more flexibility. I’ve heard Oak Meadow fits the bill and would love, love a chance to try it out! Thanks again!
I have one 8 year who would LOVE to learn with Oak Meadow. We love that Oak Meadow is Waldorf inspired and from what I’ve read it would be a perfect fit for our family. Very excited for the chance to try it out this year! With Kindness, Christine
We have 9 year old twins that would Love Oak Meadow 3rd Grade! We love all the nature and arts based learning that we have heard about. We spend much of our days outside and feel that this is a curriculum that would support this learning. Thanks for the opportunity!

I have a 5, 4, almost 3 and 1 year old. We live in Uganda where we are missionaries. We have a small children’s home and a daycare and outreach project for disabled children. I started homeschooling because we live in a small village in Uganda without good schooling opportunities nearby. I started to love it and would not want anything else anymore. I see how much my kids are learning from their environment and their free play. I am now really struggling to get enough material together. This curriculum looks very complete and very child friendly.
Hi! Our munchkins are 9.5, 7, 3.5, and 1.5 — I’ve always wanted to try Oak Meadow…I love their blend of Waldorf and Charlotte Mason! Thank you for the wonderful opportunity xo
I love Oak Meadow. I’ve used their kindergarten curriculum with my second youngest child, and i loved how much it felt it *fit* our family and our life on the farm. I would love another year of Oak Meadow, a different year. I loved the rituals, the smooth transitions between subjects, the literature and the way it helped to structure my day in a more natural, organic rhythm….
I shared on Facebook, too!!! (fingers crossed)…

My kids are 4, 2.5, and 1. I love that Oak Meadows is an active curriculum. My kids love to be up and moving around, and I love the idea of utilizing their love of the outdoors with the curriculum!
My kids are 11 and 8 and Oak Meadow is appealing because it is wholistic and gentle.
Nicola’s latest post: wholistic learning
My kids are 4 and 2 and big nature lovers so it seems like a natural fit.
My kids are 7 and 5. Oak Meadow appeals to me because of the holistic nature of their curriculm which encourages the musical, artistic and spiritual side of children as well as their desire to connect with nature and something bigger than themselves.
our children are newly 10, just 7 and 5. Oak meadow appeals to me because I’d love to try a ‘whole’ curriculum that balances age appropriateness with developing the whole child – not purely academic. Would love to try this for my 10 year old in January!
Shared on Facebook! thank you!
Kiddos are 11, 6, 4, 2, and 6 months. I love that the curriculum is child-centered with a huge nature component.
Our children are 14, 12, 10, 8, 6, 2, and 7 months.
Children learn through living and doing. Oak Meadow seems to understand that so I would love to be able to try it out!
My 3 beautiful children are 10, 7 & 5. We live in a rural setting so the naturalistic components of the curriculum are perfect for us!
Shared on Facebook!
My four daughters 10, 8, 6 and 3 love nature studies as well we come from a waldorf school. Oak Meadow is a gentle and holistic way of learning. It would be wonderful to win a year curriculum. Thank you.
My daughter is 9. I like how they include natural elements in their curriculum.
My son is 3 and is developmentally 5-6 love how the curriculum is nature and outdoor based, all things we love.
Shared on Facebook
8, 7 & 4. I like the idea of going back to one gentle complete curriculum. And how cool is 3rd grade cooking! 🙂
My kids are 8 mo, 3, 7, 8, 10 and 11. I dream of a curriculum like oak meadow that is so nature and child centered.
My daughters are 5 and 9 years old. This curriculum gives us hope and love. Oak meadow curriculum supports us not only academic learning but also inner growth. Thank you so much for the opportunity.
I have a 4 year old that only wants to be outside and there is where he learns and feels at home that is why I feel oak meadow is perfect for him.

Oh how I would love love love to win Oak Meadow. My 3 are 8, 11, and 13. My kids would be so excited too. Living on the bottom half of the world makes having access to great resources like Oak Meadow, out of reach for us.
My boys are 13, 11, 7, 5 and newborn foster baby. I would love anything that makes my job easier! My boys are constantly outside and on the go and a curriculum that’s set up and ready to go and geared toward the way children learn would be a huge help. Finances have been difficult for the past 5 years, making a complete curriculum not feasible.
Shared on FB. Thanks!
We have a friend that does OM! I was very impressed with it and she also reccomended “the heart of learning” to us. My kids are 5 and 2, and the big one is really excited about starting something soon!
My children are 12, 10, and 8. They/we love spending time outdoors and exploring, reading, and creating. I feel the Oak Meadow curriculum would be a good fit to help us direct some of this open ended learning with just enough guided structure. Thank You.
My daughter is 5.5 and I appreciate even the reminder that homeschooling doesn’t have to be rigorous, that the reason we started down this path in the first place was to reinforce gentle parenting and give our kids space to explore the world on their own terms. I’m excited to learn more about Oak Meadow regardless.
I have three boys–7, 4.5, and nearly 3–all of whom LOVE to be outdoors and are already self-directed learners. We are exploring unschooling, but especially at this early stage, it’s also nice to have some framework in place that sort of keeps us moving in what interests them. Oak Meadow is totally new to me, but it sounds like it might be a good fit…
Shared in my New Zealand Homeschool Facebook group!!
9, 6, and 4 year old active boys love science and exploring.
So excited to see this give away! I have 3 kids (5, 3 and 1). I’ve read through some of the samples they have on their page before, and I love that they capture the essence of kids, constantly learning through movement, play, discovery and getting outdoors, and allow them to learn at a relaxed pace, while still giving the security of a routine! (Perfect for my oldest with ASD, constantly moving but needing structure and guidance in his day)

Hi. I have 2 sons aged 8 and almost 6. They are on the Autism spectrum. I have been following the NZ curriculum so as to keep up with the school. However in my heart I would really love to try something more like this… nature based and child led. Eveyrthing we do is bookwork and we don’t find time in the end to do the real life skill stuff I’d rather do. I’m.not the type that’s creative…I’m more practical minded. I need to follow some sort of plan or curriculum or else I’d be all over the place lol. Following a curiculum like this would the breath of fresh air and new experience myself and my children have been craving ????
My kids are 9, 7 and 2. Oak meadow appeals to me because it meshes with our homeschool goals exactly. I also think it would fit with my kids learning styles perfectly. It looks like it is so much fun and very engaging!
My homeschooler is 7, and what keeps popping out at me about Oak Meadow is the use of these words: natural/organic, play, freedom, beauty, independence, joy. These concepts resonate with me because they are exactly what I want to be weaved throughout my daughter’s home education. What a blessing this would be as we navigate our way through our first year of homeschooling!

Boys 11 and 13. I love the gentle but thorough approach!
Boys ages 11 and 3.
I love the hands on look of the curriculum and the wholesomeness.
I have 5 kids.. Ages 15, 14, 13, 11 ,10 and 8. We tend to stick to the Unschooling method of very little structure in our daily schooling. As I have my older kids starting their “high” school years.. This appeals to me as something I could use to help with adding a bit more guidelines or structure in for some of the kiddos that might be interested in more specific things!
typo..I have *6 Kids 🙂
Also, I saw that I goes only to grades 8… and I meant it for my younger ones.. not the ones already at “high” school lever 🙂
I’d love to use Oak Meadow for my 12, 11, 4, and 2yo simply for the cute fuzzy acorns. I mean they are adorable!!!! Ok seriously, I love the CM approach and the focus on creativity.
I have 2 kids ages 7 and 5. We love Oak Meadow for its gentle approach to learning. It not only explores the academics, but digs much deeper into arts, music, and nature. My kids are already begging to start school this year. I’m happy we found Oak Meadow!
I shared on Facebook and liked the Oak Meadow page.
My kiddos are 11, 10, 6, 5, and 6 weeks. We love Oak Meadow because it is a well rounded program and gets our hands dirty creating and using our imaginations!
My children are 5, 8 and 9, though my 5 year old is a non-verbal, special needs child. He loves to be outside and so if this curriculum allows us more outside time, that’s intriguing. I’ve heard the name but never bothered to look it up as we use and love Sonlight.
Exploring the Oak Meadow website to answer the question has actually made me want to look into it a bit more.
I love that I can use the curriculum in my home as a homeschooler but also love the distance learning option too. As my special needs child is getting older, I’m finding it a little more challenging to teach my older two and have wondered about a distance option.
Looking through some same lessons, I love the circle time little verses that I saw. It seems like a great program.
At first I was put off by the secular aspect of it but then realized that I often supplement our bible time in Sonlight as well since our family uses the KJV and some of the resources that we get I have to change anyway.
Shared on Facebook ????
My youngest is 11 and my oldest is 22 with specialneeds. This curriculum will give me a change to teach both of kids without limitations. I’m so excited for this opportunity. This is our first year homeschooling. And it would be awesome to started like this. Lots of family time without excluding anyone. Love it. Thanks!!!
My kids are 15, 13, and 9 and I love the quality and beauty of this curriculum.

I have five children ages 2-9. my oldest is a very out of the box creative thinker. i think oak meadow would help her to love learning in a new way.
My kids are 10, 5 and 3 and the older two were in public school. We have decided to homeschool/unschool for the first time this year. I am attracted to the Oak Meadow Curriculum because I have heard great things about it from trusted friends who use it. Also, this curriculum supports my reasons for wanting to homeschool: independence and freedom to truly explore what they’re passionate about, spending more time active and outdoors and learning through play and real life experiences. Thanks for hosting this giveaway, I will share the link after I finish posting here as well!
I wish I could win for my kids I have 9,7,5,3 years old
They will be so excited
I have six children but am looking to do Kinder with my daughter this year. My kids span a long time from 25-2 🙂
I love this for my 5 & 8 y.o. because it is beautifully organized, comprehensive, rich with activity, and easy to follow. It would save me time with planning and provide a robust learning experience for our family. I love the 3rd grade Hebrew component.
Our kids are 9, 7, 4, and almost 2. I like the fact that OM is creative and nature based.
My boys are 6 & 4. We are very interested in Oak Meadow’s curriculum because of its hands-on, nature-focused approach.
My kids are 5&7. I love that this curriculum is nature-based.
Right now, my boys are 5 months and almost 2 years. As an early childhood educator and farm wife, a nature-based, play approach to learning is exactly what I’m hoping to use for our homeschooling needs. I am such a believer in children getting to be children without drilling lessons into them. Thank you for sharing so many resources like this that are so hands on :).
I am always looking for ways to incorporate Steiner’s ideology into our school day. I think Oak Leaf does this seamlessly. I love the idea of an easy rhythm to our day filled with learning and joy. My three kids all fit in the k-3 age range.
My kids are 11, 8, 4, 3. We adopted our 2 youngest this year and have been in survival mode as far as homeschool. Oak Meadow would give us the inspiration, guidance and structure to reconnect with who we are as a homeschooling family in terms of project based learning, nature studies, and hands on learning so we can step out of workbook survival again!!!
Shared on facebook!
My children are 14, 12, 10, 9, 6, and 5. We are moving to a new state, and a house on a bit of property and this would be the perfect opportunity to try something new that will get us outside and exploring our new home and neighborhood.
We may have to homeschool our middle schooler, and what I like about this programme is the integration of art into other subjects.
My girls are 10, 5 and 10 months. We go camping a lot and love the nature focus!
My amazing kids are 8, 3, and 1. My 8yo has been in public school for 3 years. It’s never been a good fit and she’s become very institutionalized, so we’ve decided to homeschool and would like a nature based curriculum to deschool both of us and get her curiosity and love of learning back!
I have 4 kiddos, ages 12, 9, 3, and 1. I would LOVE to try Oak Meadow because it is planned out and so hands-on! Get us into nature not only to enjoy it but to learn about it and from it.

Finding something that fits and works with all needs
Has been a challenge these last few years.
I believe I may have finally found it in Oak Veiw Meadow !!
My kiddos are 7,5,2 and 2 months… I like Oak Meadow for its aim at cultivating a deep love of learning from the inside out.
My boys are 5 and 1. I love the freedom that Oak Meadows curriculum leaves for kids to be kids.
My girls are 8, 5, and 1. We have used Oak Meadow for 2 years nows. We love the fairy tales, natural approach to learning, art, and connection to outdoors. Oak Meadow has heart and is a good match for our family!
Our homeschooled children are 13, 12, 10 and 8. We are fortunate to be able to raise our family in a rural setting in Maine, as it fits our mindset to live mindfully, leave a small footprint, and be in harmony with nature. I didn’t realize there was a full curriculum that honored our commitment to being stewards of our world; I wish we had discovered it when we first began teaching our children. It would be an honor to use this curriculum in our home and expand it to all of our children’s levels. Thank you for the opportunity!

My children are 8 and 2. We would love to try this gentle, artistic and nature based approach.
Hello! My children are 12 and 10. I really like the natural and organic way of learning that Oak Meadow offers, as well as the independence that the children learn using this style of learning. My children are very artistic and hands-on and it is important to expose them to the real world and to respect the way they are created to explore, be inquisitive and find out their own answers; all these with the presence and support of us their parents and validated them as they discover and learn naturally! My children would thrive using Oak Meadow. Thank you for all the work and thoughtfulness put into creating this curriculum????
My kids are aged 8, 7, 5 and 3. I love that Oak Meadow is nature based and gentle. It’s just how childhood learning should be experienced.
My Daughter EstherBailey home schools my Grandkids age’s 12, 9 , 3 & 1 she is awesome teacher and I saw her share this post on facebook and She has took them to a dairy farm lately and taught them how to make butter and stuff from natural milk and I know she love nature since she was little and so do her kids
I think this would be a great surprise for her if I win..
My kids are 3 and 5. I am attracted to Oak Meadow because it seems gentle and nurturing of the whole child and our connection to the natural world.
I like their developmental approach,integral language arts,math and science. Outdoor, crafts, verses, planner.

My children are 4 and 6 and this would be perfect to allow us to spend more time outdoors naturally.
My oldest will be 3 years old next month and I love that Oak Meadow is hands-on and nature-based because we have our own little homestead and its hands-on and nature-based as well when learning to do things around here and my son loves it!
My kids are 8,7, and 3 and we love the gentle learning style of Oak Meadow.
My boys are 7 and 8. They are struggling learners and are very resistant to anything academic. I think Oak Meadow’s gentle approach and hands-on learning will appeal to them.

My daughter is 6 and is a hands-on learner who loves nature. Oak Meadow seems like a perfect fit for her learning style. I love the nature aspect and the crafts. Thank you!
My kids are ages 8, 6, 4, & 2. I like this curriculum because it seems so intuitive and hands on. It has been difficult to find a curriculum handgun for my son to thrive. This may be what I have been searching for.
Sorry.. Typo from the auto correct on my device.. Not handgun, hands o enough .. Lol
My kids are 13, 11, and 6. Oak Meadow appeals to me because it’s so hands on.
My children are 4, 8, and 12. This curriculum appeals to me because it is well rounded and nature based, which would also appeal to my children!

My kids are 8 and 6! I love Oak Meadow for its gentleness, nothing seems forced. Anything nature based is a win in our home!
My boys are (almost) 9 and 5 years old. I love that Oak Meadow is so hands-on! My oldest is ADHD, and Oak Meadow is one of the few curriculum that looks like it would work very well for him! I have a few friends that have tried Oak Meadow and sing the praises of this curriculum and how perfect it is for highly distractible kiddos!
My boys are 6, 5, and almost 2. This is the first I’ve heard of this curriculum, and I would LOVE to try it out with them. I think it would be a great fit for our family.
My son just turned 6 and I think he would thrive with this curriculum do to his short attention span and the fact that he is easily distracted.
I appreciate how Oak Meadow sees the child as a whole human, with a sacredness that allows them to unfold at their own pace. Love its emphasis on the natural world. I have three kids, 10, 5, and 18 months.
My children are 9 and 3. Having looked through the sample pages the approach to science as well as the art elements of the curriculum are spot on in terms gaps I feel we have in our current approach.
My son is 2.5 and I would love to win the kindergarten curriculum! He is a visual tactile leaner who would live outside if I let him. He is advanced physically but behind peers in speech and he is not a big fan of books. For these reasons I think oak meadow would be perfect for him! He just isn’t going to be a work book kid and the sample lessons are so appealing to me for my son.
I have a 7, 5 and 2 year old and love the way this curriculum lets kids be children while discovering a true love for learning. Thank you for the opportunity to win!
Hi, My girls are 3 and 4 (almost 5). I love how flexible and nature-centric the curriculum is, how it builds from year to year, and the community that has risen up in support of others using it or even considering using it in any capacity. We’ve purchased the kindergarten curriculum and just started this week. If chosen for a free curriculum we would get first grade to get ready for next year.
I have a three year old and a nine year old. We homeschool while living on our sailboat and so, unsurprisingly, nature is a big part of our lives.

I have one 7 year old daughter. We are in our second year of homeschooling. I am interested in how Oak Meadow is an all-in-one curriculum yet is centered around nature and movement. I am looking for a full curriculum that is in line with our values and lifestyle yet takes some of the work off me.
Shared on Facebook! Thanks for this opportunity!
Our children are 1, 3, 5, & 7. They love hands on learning, and since we are new homeschoolers-I think this would be a great curriculum to try!
I am homeschooling my 11 year old twin girls. They love the outdoors and nature! Living in the foothills of the Smokey Mtns gives us ample opportunity to connect with the beauty of nature. I have just recently learned of Oak Meadow and think this would be our best avenue if learning. I am looking forward to learning more. My girls have different methods of learning , but I feel like this would appeal to both of them.
What is the book the kids have in the top picture to identify leaves and acorns??? My son would LOVE that book!!
Mine are 4 years, and 8.5 months. I love that Oak Meadows is nature-based. The way learning should be!
I have two kids, a 4 year old and a 2 year old and expecting our third child this winter. My little guys love hands on activities so I think Oak Meadow would be a good fit

I have 5 children, 14, 11,8,5,2. Oak Meadows is perfect for busy little boys!
My two girls are ages 4.5 and 2, and I fell in love with oak meadow the very first time I read about it. It seems so natural, peaceful, yet thorough, and followed a rhythm that resonated deeply with me. Thanks so much for this opportunity!
8,6,2, and one on the way. My kids love nature and creating things. This whole child approach seems like a lovely fit for us. Hope we win!
I have two children. Alexander is 3 and starting homeschooled preschool. Rowan is 7 months old and is learning about textures and paints. What I love about Oak Meadow is its emphasis on the whole child. The curriculum engages all senses in many different ways, and there’s a huge emphasis on nature and art, two aspects of education I’m drawn toward in prepping our homeschool life. Also, I love the flexibility of the program. It’s frustrating to see some curricula be so rigid that I feel it becomes null when we come across something that doesn’t work for us. Oak Meadow is versatile, and I love that.
Thank you for this great opportunity!
My kids are 5 & 3. Last year my son was educated through an online charter school but I was never happy with how much time we spent inside. We are on the 3rd day of school & already the online teachers have put so much pressure on us. I really want both my kids learning in a more natural relaxed setting. They can thrive this way! Thanks so much for your wonderful instruction!
I shared this publicly on Facebook and will write a blog post to share on there as well. Thank you!

I really like it being nature based as I like the idea of our 5 year old being able to learn more about the natural world around him and develop a love and respect for it.
My girls are 4 and 2. I really want my girls to have a relaxed learning curriculum without all the pressure.
How fun!! My kids are 8,6,4,2 and I like that Oak Meadow is relaxed and incorporates a love for nature. We all need more nature to bring balance into hectic lives!!
My kids are 15 son & 6 daughter ..as a single mom this would help A LOT ..we love homeschooling , hve been hs my son since 1st grade. We hve a wonderful homeschool group here in Franklin County .
My kids are 10, 8, 5, and 1. I love how Oak Meadow incorporates nature into their curriculum!!
I hope I shared properly to be inc in the contest
My children are 10 and 8. I like the interesting topics covered, the attractive books and the easy to use assessments.
My almost 5 year old and 3 year old love outdoors! We love play based learning! This sounds like it would be the perfect fit for us!!!
I would loooove oak meadow for my 6, 4 and 2 year olds. I love how it grows a love of nature and using your body well.
My daughter Pearl has just turned 7 and I have 2 older children. I would love to win Pearl a year of the Oak Meadow Curriculum!
I love the holistic approach Oak Meadow has, and the strong links to the world around us. It would also be such a treat to have the planning and organisation done for me and know I didn’t need to worry about what to do next week! Life is so full and one less thing on the to-do list would be incredible!
Pearl is an active hands on learner who thrives in the outdoors and has an insatiable curiosity. I have looked at this curriculum several times and thought how much we would both love it. I haven’t tried it yet due to the cost. We live in New Zealand and unfortunately many of the resources you have available are so expensive when we convert our dollar and add shipping! Also, we don’t get the chance to see them first or talk to friends who are currently using them, so paying so much can be quite a risk! I’ve looked around but I haven’t found anything similar in this part of the world and I would love the opportunity to see how it works for us.
My son is 8, I like that the curriculum is secular and nature based.
My son is 5, and I’m interested in trying the Oak Meadow kindergarten curriculum with him. I like the gentle approach to academics in the early grades and the emphasis on nurturing the whole person that Oak Meadow provides.
My girl is age 5 and my boy is almost age 4. I like what I’m reading about Oak Meadow because it flows well with how I want to teach my children: simple, hands-on, eyes open to the entire world around them.
My kids are 2, 5, and 7. We are interested in Oak Meadow due to it’s gentle and natural reputation. Thanks!
Mary Ann Armstrong
My daughter will be 12 tomorrow and my son is 13. I like that Oak Meadow works with the concept of child led learning, as I’ve not come across another curriculum that does. I chose unschooling because I wanted their vivid imaginations to continue to flourish and not get squashed like they were before I pulled them out of public school. The whole world is their school, there’s tons of things to be learned just by spending time out in nature. It would still be nice to have access to a curriculum that understands not every parent teaches their kids like they are still in public school, but just doing it at home.
Mine are 4,9,11. I hear a lot about OM. I’ve never tried a complete curriculum before. Thanks for the chance.
My sons are 13 & going to be 9 on Friday. I have had my eye on Oak Meadow since we started homeschooling 6 yrs ago. I love the nature and exploration part of it.
Ages 13, 10, 3 and 1. I love the slow approach and how loose the curriculum is and you can tailor it to your needs.

My children are 9,7, and 4 years.
We have been using Oak Meadow for 4 years now and I love the connection to nature and the outdoors that it brings us. And also the simple, almost old fashioned way that it looks at the world.
I’ve been hesitant to purchase the next grade we need as I’ve been waiting to find a used deal and money is very tight right now.
This would just be such a blessing.

My kids are 10, 9 and 7. Oak Meadows appeals to me because I’ve been wanting to incorporate learning in and through nature, but don’t know how!
This is our first year homeschooling and I have a 2nd grader, 4 almost 5 year old, twin 3 year olds, and a 1.5 year old. Overwhelmed with all the homeschooling options out there, I love the idea of complete curriculums like Oak Meadow! I would love the kindergarten level 🙂

My kids are seven years old. I love that Oak Meadow is a complete curriculum with a solid foundation on nature. I also appreciate the flexibility of it all.
What’s not to like! My children are 6, 4 and nearly 2 and we live in nz. The nature based activities are what draw me to oak meadow as this is where we spend ALL of our time. Having a curriculum already organised would free up time for me to go on adventures with my children! Thanks so much for making it!!!!
My currently homeschooled kids are 16,13,10,8. (Also have 26,22,21,18 and 4 year olds.)
Oak Meadow appeals to me because of the emphasis on nature and gentle learning. I would go for a curriculum geared towards the primary grades because my 8 and 4 year olds would enjoy it and the older kids would enjoy helping them to learn.
my daughter is 14. I love that Oak Meadow is nature based and hands on even until the 8th grade.
My kids are 7 and 9 and we would love to try! The nature aspect appeals hugely!
I have a seven-year-old daughter and a ten-year-old daughter… And this is our first year using Oak Meadow! We are unbelievably excited to begin our school year–can’t wait to study with the nature-based curriculum–not to mention the art and music that comes along with the core subjects! My family needed a change, and Oak Meadow is it!
My kids are 9, 7, 5 and 3 and readd to be thoroughly engaged. The student-centered, nature-based approach appeals to me!
My kids are 10, 5, almost 2, and baby coming in October. My kids LOVE being outside and are super active. I’m fairly new to homeschool and would love to try out this curriculum, thanks so much!!
My school-age kids are 8 and 4. I love the gentleness of OM and the focus on nature as well.
My kids are 6 and 4, with one more on the way via adoption 🙂 <3!! The nature-based aspect appeals to me, as well as this, taken straight from their website: "You create your own rhythms for learning, and integrate your child’s education into your family’s lifestyle."
My kids are 4.5 and 7. I love the holistic approach that Oak Meadow seems to have. The focus on rhythm is wonderful.

My kids are 12, 9, 6, 3, & 10 months. Love how OM provides the basic spine for a natural based learning but is easy to adjust for need and ability..
My kids are 6, 4, and 1. I like that Oak Meadow is nature- based and hands-on.

My little one is 6 years old. We are an attachment homeschooling family who just loves the gentleness of Oak Meadow. I came across a parent manual a few years back and loved it immediately. <3

My daughter is 7, and Oak Meadow’s nature study has ignited a spark inside her to love nature and be a future protector our beautiful world 🙂
My daughters are 2 and almost 5. I have always wanted to homeschool my children from day one, and would love to with Oak Meadow! It seems to have everything we are looking for in a homeschooling curriculum, especially the hands-on, nature- based approach! Oak Meadow would fit my little student perfectly!
