My children are 3, 7, and 8. I have always enjoyed perusing the oak meadow catalog and website. This could be my jumping off point to get my kids started with a Waldorf-style education!
I have 12, 11 and 9 year olds. I would love to try Oak Meadow with my oldest! I am looking at some of the classes as he gets to high school!

I have an eight year old Homeschooler who is going strong with his own pieced together curriculum. My little one will be kindergarten aged soon and I feel that Oak Meadow would be such a good fit for her. She’s artistic, a story lover, and a nature lover and I want to be sure to encourage these traits.

My daughter is 11 years old. We will be using Oak Meadow in the Fall and I can’t wait. I have researched home school material until I could weep with exhaustion over it. Oak Meadow came out the very clear winner. They are clear in their instruction. Offer plenty of support for both the student and the parent. Their curriculum is sound and based on tried and true methods for teaching.
Our kids are 2, 5, 7, 12, and 14. I love the way they learn naturally.
I have an almost-5 year old. I’d love to try Oak Meadow for our first year!
This would be wonderful –
Thanks for the chance!
We have a 10 & 12 yr old. I have been researching high school curriculum (to get ready, he’ll be in 8th in the fall) & your email pops up! I’m very excited to look at samples of what’s available. We enjoy hands on learning and this would be great for my younger child.
My kids are 5 and 3. I have looked at Oak Meadow several times and I enjoy many aspects of Waldorf education, especially the nature connections. I think my oldest would thrive with this curriculum. Thanks for the opportunity.
I have an 11 year old and 14 year old. I love that it can be digitally delivered offering us the ease of traveling while not falling behind and possibly doing a little more exploring what we are learning. This may be just what we need for our second year of homeschooling!
Thanks for your genorous offer I’m sure whoever wins will be pleased.
We are planning to use Oak Meadow for second grade in the fall! We can’t wait to start. Winning this curriculum would be such a gift!
My monkeys are 3, 4, and 6. We use Oak Meadow for first grade with our oldest. I love how nature based it its, how it focuses on letting the child be creative and hands on. I also enjoy how fluid the lessons are: It gives me the basic outline and we can run with it however my daughter wants. Some lessons take all of five minutes, and some concepts she holds tight to for days!
I would love to win this curriculum. It would be a great fit for my 6 yr son and his special needs 16 yr old sister, but I don’t have the money to buy it. Fingers cross I can win it!
I am constantly inspired and challenged by the posts on Simple Homeschool – thank you!
My gal is 9 years old and she is an experiential learner – Oak Meadow would be perfect for her. I have not made the jump to purchase this curriculum – yet.
Thank you for this opportunity!
This post and the Oak Meadow FB page have been shared via my wall. ????
My children are 6, 4, 21 months and 2 weeks old. My oldest, a boy, would really benefit from Oak Meadow’s hands-on approach and emphasis on nature. At this very busy time in our family life, I also appreciate the detailed lesson plans!
My children are 9 & 6. I absolutely love the nature based curiculum and the hands in approach! It fits our family perfectly and would be greatly appreciated.
I love Oak Meadows style of learning…very appealing and organized. My children are 12 and 9 years old and would be thrilled to win OM curriculum! ❤
My sweet babes are 8 and 6. We love OM’s gentle instruction and their love of nature. Thanks so much!
Our sweet girls are 4 and 7, and oh how all things Waldorf have spoken to my heart lately. 🙂
My kids are 3, 7 and 9. The part about Oak Meadow that appeals to me is how gentle the program seems and how its well organized.
My children are 11,9,6,and 3. Oak Meadow appeals to me as I have many Ideas, but not the organization to go with it! What a great program!
My kids are 5, 3, & 1 (and another on the way)! I love just reading about how natural this curriculum is and would be excited for the opportunity to try it out on my 4 kids as they get older!
My children are 17, 12, 10, 6 and 3. I think what I like most about Oak Meadow is the way they introduce academics slowly and gently in a way that respects the developmental needs of young children.
I would so love this curriculum for my 3 kids 12, 10, and 8 and I think all 3 of them would get something different from this amazing program, but all thrive . !! I keep coming back to it year after year when I am looking for curriculum choices. I just Love the Gentle Waldorf influence.
I have two kids, aged 10 and 7. I love the gentle approach of Oak Meadow.
Raising three life long learners at my #offspringacademy ages 14, 12 and 8 yrs old. The first couple years of homeschooling was like being blindfolded and feeling my way through it-the thought of having an organized yet organically thoughtful curriculum is a dream. Pick me! Pick me!
I homeschool my 11 and 12 year old using Grade 5 OM curriculum. This is our first year of homeschooling, and everyone is so happy. The holistic curriculum meets both children where they are developmentally and engages them in a way I couldn’t have ever imagined! They are excited about learning!!!. I can’t say enough about OM! Thank you for this opportunity. Liked on FB.
My 3 boys are 10, 8 and almost 7. We search and search for the right curriculum, but all seem to be missing something. Oak Meadow encompasses all facets we are looking for. I just received the catalog in the mail this past week and have been pouring over it!
I love the looks of this curriculum! My daughter is 3 1/2, so we are starting ‘home-pre-school.’ I love that this curriculum is so nature-based and encourages exploration of a child’s environment. Thank you for this chance!
I have an 11yo who would really enjoy the Oak Meadow approach. I love OM’s focus on art and literature.
We live in Southern Pacific Mexico (Oaxaca), and we have very few options for a progressive, modern education and are very excited for my children to have the opportunity to get the kind of education I did, in English! This program could make a very big difference in our lives and future…
I forgot to add my kids are 10 and 6 and bilingual…
My kids are 6 and 1 years old. I have looked at Oak Meadows curriculum in the past because I appreciate their vision and programs.
I have a 4, 2 year old and newborn. Oak Meadow sounds like a perfect start to homeschooling for us with a full curriculum since it would be our first year soon!
My kiddo is 8 and I love how Oak Meadow has such a broad and well-rounded curriculum.
I have kids ages 8, 6, 3 and 1. We can’t afford to buy curriculum, so I do my best at piecing together various resources from the library and online. I have read several Waldorf books and am very inspired by this style of learning. I would love the opportunity to use your curriculum! My oldest is a nature lover, super creative and not well suited to the standard school experience. I think that she would thrive using Oak Meadows!
I have a 3 & 5 year old. I love the hands on approach, encouraging art & self expression. I’m really impressed with the global approach!
I have an almost 9 year son. Oak Meadows seems very organized yet very flexible and approachable.
My son is 2 1/2. We are looking to start preschool at home when he turns 3. We have another baby on the way. I’m considering homeschooling for Pre-K, Kindergarden, and 1st grade. The Oak Meadow curriculum sounds very well rounded. Would love to give it a try!!!!
I love that Oak Meadow is both organized and offers the opportunity for me to tailor our activities around my students’ interests. The activities are engaging. My children are 14 and 16.
My girls are 9 & 11. I’ve looked at OaK Meadow a million times but have never purchased a complete curriculum of any kind. If I did, this would surely be the one – the flexible, organic nature of Oak meadow really appeals to me and the girls are so creative – I feel that there is plenty of room for that with Oak Meadow.
My kids are 9, 5, and 3 and they all love being outdoors and learning about nature! Oak Meadows looks incredible!
My kids are ages 8 and 12. I love Oak Meadow’s focus on literature.
Yes! Love that too.
My children are 12, 10,7,4,2 and I find the Waldorf component appealing. Thanks for the giveaway!

My son is five and I like Oak Meadow’s natural approach. I think it will be a great way to start our homeschooling journey.
My son is eight years old. I love the school’s philosophy, your hands-on approach (which is great for my son!) and the fact that you just received accreditation!! That’s great.
We are 12, 9 and 5.
We have always loved the in depth study provided by Oak Meadow. Looking forward to investigating their offerings for the upper grades.
My children are currently 4, 2 and 3 months. We will be starting kindergarten with my then 5 year old in the fall. I’ve had my eye on the Oak Meadow kindergarten curriculum for years! I love the rhythm-centered nature-based approach of Oak Meadow. This child-focused curriculum that highlight creativity rather than being super rigid and prescriptive is very appealing to me and I would be delighted to win this giveaway.
My children are 6, 2 1/2 and one on his way in July. I have always loved OM’s focus on nature, family, and firsthand experience. We are moving to mountain area in a few months, and it will be great to use the curriculum with our homeschool.
I liked Oak Meadow on Facebook!
I have a 7, 5, 2 year old, and baby #4 on due in the spring. This is my 2nd yr homeschooling my 7yo and have been piecing stuff together. I’ve been looking into different curriculum to have a little better structure, esp since I’ll be officially starting to homeschool my 5yo next year.
Love it!! I have four grown children and a 13yrold still at home. We have homeschooled her ,except for two yrs in public school. She had a nervous breakdown in fourth grade,which lead to us discovering she had Aspergers,,, But our God (as always) turned it around for his good! P.S. LLLLOOOVVVEE the schnauzie in the picture:)
My kids are 8 and 5. I am drawn to the gentle, hands-on approach of Oak Meadow. Also I love the arts that focus on learning through nature, since that is something we love doing.
Greetings..my child is 12 years old. I am currently using Oak Meadow. The curriculum is challenging and prepping her for high school and beyond.
My kids are 7, 5, 4 and 2. We are currently in our first year of home learning and I keep looking at Oak Meadow for next year because it is so nature based. My kids live in the outdoors and I would love to tie more of their “schooling” to what they love naturally.
my boys are 10 and 6, and I love Oak Meadow’s emphasis on nature, art, and literature!
My kids are 6 and 8 and I love that it’s based around seasons and going outside is a big family value to us!
Sarah m’s latest post: A New List for a New Year // 16 in 2016
My kids are 6, 4 & 8 month old twins. Oak Meadow’s organic approach to learning totally fits our household.
Our little one is 5 years old and we are accidental homeschoolers and I work full time from home (not for myself!). After researching countless curriculum and learning styles that might work for our situation, I feel that Oak Meadow will offer a unique approach and remind us city dwellers to get outside and learn IN and through nature – not just tied to our desks. Thanks for the opportunity!
Shared on FB!
My kids are 8, 6, and 4 years old. This well rounded model that pulls in pieces of classical education I feel are key and provides an emphasis on great literature appeals to me and fits in line with our family goals. I love the multisensory approach as I have a child with Asperger’s/sensory issues who definitely does not “fit in the box”. Thank you for the opportunity to win! I will be exploring this program further.
My kids are 4 and 8 and I love Oak Meadow. I love the hand-on approach. Thank you for this contest!
My children are 11, 9, 7, 4, and 8 months and we homeschool using Waldorf-inspired methods. I have been wanting to use Oak Meadow, especially for our older children and this would be a great opportunity to try it! Thank you!
My children 7 and 4, interested in trying and checking it out. This may work great!
I have 8 and 4 year old kids. For me everything is interesting on oak meadow, since I am a “beginner” homeschooler. Thanks for the chance!!!
My boys are 4 and 8. Oak meadow is child centered and nature based, what’s not to love?
Our children are: 8, 6, 4, and 14months old. I like the fact that it’s flexible and encourages creativity. Thank you!
My kiddos are 5 & 2. I love the hands-on nature-based approach of Oak Meadow. It really makes it stand out among other homeschool curriculums. It love that it speaks to the heart of the child instead of the head, particularly in the early years. Thanks for the chance to win!!
I have 5 children (15, 13, 10, 3 and 5 months) I’d love to try Oak Meadow. I love that everything is all included. When you have so many grades to prepare for it ends up being a lot of piecing together:)
My daughter has just turned 13. She went to a Waldorf school that closed and moved away. We really appreciate the Waldorf style approach to learning and I am sure would love to have an opportunity to use the materials.
Thank you for the offer.
I have a four year old daughter who I will be homeschooling for Kindergarten next fall. I love the Oak Meadow format for planning out the day but all the flexibility within it. And the activities and ideas utilizing the outdoors and nature.
I have 15 and 14 year old daughters and a 9 year old boy. Oak Meadow would be a perfect fit for my son….he loves nature and I think the Oak Meadow philosophy and encouragement toward independence would help him spread his wings. We’ve used an eclectic piecemeal approach so far and would love to give Oak Meadow a try!
My kids are 6, 4, 2 and 4 months. I like that they encourage creativity.
Our children are 6 and 8. I love the rythm and balance Waldorf education supports homeschooling in maintaining.
My son is very independant and creative and I’m looking at this curriculum like it may be a good fit. Plus I’ve heard through the grapevine that this curriculum is secular which is very important to us. Thank you!
I shared this on FB.
I have two children, ages 4 and 6. I love the idea of a more hands-on curriculum! It would be especially wonderful for my son, who loves projects of any kind and is always initiating his own.
I love the whole child approach to the Oak Meadow curriculum. I have been incorporating Waldorf methods into our homeschooling, over the past two years, and it would be wonderful to work with a more complete curriculum, professionally designed, that is influenced by Waldorf methods. My son loves the hands on, creative aspects of learning, while I’m interested in how Oak Meadow meets the needs of students at different developmental levels. It’s something I would consider continuing through his school years.
My kiddos are 6 and 7 months! We are currently using Oak Meadow for my son’s kindergarten experience and LOVE it. We really appreciate its gentleness, its connection to the seasons and the natural world, and the way it organically integrates into our everyday life. We look forward to many more years of Oak Meadow learning!
I have a 13, 11 ,3 year old girls and an 8 year old son. I am Montessori trained and have loved creating an eclectic curriculum. But mom is tired and ready to try an all on in one curriculum, especially for my teen that craves something challenging and different than we have used. Trouble is my standards are extremely high and I haven’t seen any AIOs as fantastic as Oak meadow! Would be a blessing for my teen.
My kids are 2, 5, 7 and 10. I would love to try Oak Meadow for my oldest. He is dyslexic and has just this year started reading more independently. So far in their schooling I have pieced together their curriculum based on what would work for him. I feel like I haven’t done the best at giving them a well rounded curriculum. I would love a chance to used a complete curriculum set.
I have an 11 year old and a 9 year old, and have been intrigued with the idea of Oak Meadow’s progressive homeschool curriculum. I love the idea of incorporating learning into our everyday movements and moving at each child’s pace.
I have two boys, grade 1 & Pre-k. We finally just decided that Oak Meadow was our best fit because of the organic approach. It melds so seamlessly with active, outdoor lifestyles, and feels less like “learning” and more like discovery.
My boys are 7 and 10. We used Oak Meadow for a year and loved all of the hands of activities, unfortunately it wasn’t in the budget this year but we would love the chance to use it again. I love that the activities are planned out for you but the schedule is really adaptable.
Shared on FB! 🙂
I have an eleven year old and an eight year old. Oak Meadow honors the child and respects the natural growth of each individual. It’s a great fit for flexible but comprehensive learning.
I have a 4 year old, 2 year old, and 10 month old. I love the idea of having guidance while supplementing with our own adventures as we begin homeschooling next year!
My kids are 10,8, and 6, I love the more natural learning method and the kids love showing their creativity.
My kids are 6 & 3. What appeals to me is having a complete curriculum to keep mommy on task, yet it provides the flexibility we require in our home.
I am mama to a nearly 5 yo and a nearly 1 yo. My oldest has attended an outdoor Waldorf kindergarten but will transition to homeschool. Oak meadow seems like it would be he perfect package, as we will continue to be Waldorf inspired and focused on nature based learning.
My children are 2 and 5. We are using Oak Meadow Kindergarten with our 5 year old. I love how Oak Meadow has so many experiential, hands on activities incorporated into it’s curriculum. Our favorites so far this year have been making letters out of pipe cleaners and building the letters out of wood. My son loves it!
My son is 7 and I love the back to basics, hands on approach of this curriculum!
Also, I did share this on Facebook:)
Ages 2, 5 and 8. Nature based!
Our daughters are 6- and 8- years old. I really like Oak Meadow’s emphasis on creativity and flexibility, something we try to encourage in our home.
I have two boys, 7 and 2. I think they would like the creative and hands on approach.
My daughter is 6 years old & going into the 1st grade. We love learning through adventures with regular trips to parks, museums, the zoo, etc. This curriculum sounds like the absolute perfect fit for what we enjoy I’m homeschooling!
My children are 8 and 4. We’ve been using Oak Meadow for 3 years now and love it! My favorite part is that it emphasizes the whole development of the child.

Our kids are 8, 6, 3, and 4 months. I love Oak Meadow’s educational approach. It gives kids what they need academically, but in a fun, whimsical way that keeps their needs and wants in mind. Thanks for the chance to win a curriculum package!
My son is 3 (almost 4), and has done Waldorf parent-child & Waldorf preschool. However, we’re planning on moving around in the near future, and his teacher recommended Oak Meadow. I love that it allows us to continue with the gentle, natural education we began, with the flexibility to travel. Thanks so much for the chance to win– it would be amazing!
My daughter is 4.5, and the emphasis on play and imagination is what really appeals to me about Oak Meadow. She is wildly excited about art, and I never want to squash that enthusiasm!
I have two daughters that are 10 and 8. We have been doing Abeka curriculum after coming out of public schooling last year and now we are ready for the more organic approach Oak Meadow offers. Would love to be able to try this!
I have an 11 year old and a 5 year old. We started the 5th grade material last year, and love the integrated, creative approach to English and History as well as the hands-on activities – many done outside – that foster independent learning. It makes learning relevant and fun. We don’t have it yet, but are looking forward to exploring the early childhood curriculum this year.
My kids are 9, 7,6 and 5. I love the with Oak Meadow portrays education an experience rather than a chore that needs to get done and forgotten.
My kids are 8, 7 and 9 months. I should love to try out Oak Meadow to see how it works with my children.
I shared on Facebook! Thank you!!
Our kids are 8,6,&4. I think we would all love Oak Meadow’s curriculum. The kids love hands on, and it looks so interesting. It seems like the kind of curriculum that we would all thrive with, while also enjoying time and experiences together.
i have two boys—3.5 and 1. i like the importance of outdoors and the way letters are taught through storytelling. so exciting! we would love the preschool package.
We love Oak Meadow!! Would love to win a full curriuculum – we will need grade 5 for next year ;)!! My kids are nearly 10, nearly 8, 3.5 and nearly 2. We have used Oak Meadow in one way or another since we started homeschooling and we love it!
My kids are 7, 4 and 2 mos (hard to get used to saying that) and Oak Meadow is my favorite in terms of curriculum. The use of the seasons and nature integrated into a sloooow build on reading are my favorite aspects of it. Such a special way to learn! Cheers!
My kids are 9, 13, 16. We’ve been homeschooling for over ten years!!! I’ve done Oak Meadow for a few of those grades, when we have been able to afford it. I absolutely love it! If I win this give away, I will use the fourth grade for my daughter. Also, I run http://www.thehomeschoolingzone.com and your website is an inspiration!!!!
My kids are 4, 2, and 7m. I am so intimidated by the thought of homeschooling so having a plan laid out by oak meadow for the first year is quite appealing!
My daughter is 7, almost 8. I love that they say their curriculum is self paced and flexible. I dislike that feeling of falling behind.
Thanks for offering this giveaway.
My daughter is 7. This is the way we homeschool! I have always wanted to try Oak Meadows curriculum.
Creative learning through expression. This would be a blessing!
My kids are ages 3, 6, 8, 8, and 10. Oak Meadow’s natural focus appeals to our educational philosophies and learning styles. It might be the thing for my son who isn’t quite ready to move on with his older siblings next year.
My kids are three months old, almost 3 years old, and five years old. We have been homeschooling for the past year, and we are finding out that we would like to lean more towards the Waldorf style of learning. I have recently also started homeschooling my almost 3-year-old and she’s just loving learning.

My kids are ages 10,9,3 and 1 1/2. I have never used Oak Meadow but i would love to try it. I love how it allows the kids to go at there own pace. My 9 year old struggles with attention and has some other mild learning issues and have always wanted to try this program. This would be a huge help to us homeschooling. What a great gift to give to someone and if i am not the winner than i hope whoever is fully appreciates it and loves it.
Oak Meadows curriculum looks beautiful, I think it would be a great match for my youngest. My kids are ages 14, 12 and 9
My boys are 4 and 6. We love the gentle natural approach to learning .
MY kids are 11, 9, 7, 5 and 18 months. We’ve been homeschooling for 6 years. We love it. I think Oak Meadows curriculum looks great for the flexibility and cultivating a love of learning in my kids. Thanks for the awesome giveaway.
By the way, I just shared on FB.
My sons are 2, 6, and 12. I like that Oak Meadow is Waldorf-inspired.
My daughter is 5, and my favorite thing about Oak Meadow is that it’s nature- based.
I have a 6 & 4 year old who I will be homeschooling in the fall. I’m very interested in how individualized and gentle this curriculum looks. I will also have a newborn in September and am looking for a curriculum with flexible lesson plans.
I have used Oak Meadow before and loved it. What appeals to me the most about it is the hands on approach and educating the whole child. It works so well with my son’s learning style. He had ADHD and sensory precessing disorder and Oak Meadow is perfect for those challenges. He is advanced for his age (7) and we would like third grade. thank you so much for this opportunity!
My boys are 9 and 6 and I love the flexible, nature-based approach. Having a full curriculum would be wonderful since I’ve been piecing together our lesson plans ao far. 🙂
We have just “jumped off the cliff” into homeschooling this week, withdrawing our 12-year-old son from public middle school. My background is in horticulture and I was the director of the organic garden at his middle school for 5+ years. LOVE outdoor learning and would LOVE to incorporate this curriculum! Thanks so much
I have a 3 and to be 5 year old. My 5 year old is very artistic and I can see this curriculum fitting her visual learning style. Both my kids are nature lovers as well and I would appreciate the lessons giving them a love of learning and experiencing nature.
I have an 8 year old daughter and 5 year old son. I love the gentle nature of Oak Meadow curriculum. Going through things at their own pace is a must for my kids!
Our kids are 7, 5, and 3. I love the encouragement to enjoy childhood and creativity.
I have 3 boys: 6, 8 & 10 & a 4 mo old daughter. I love the way Oak Meadow teaches through independence & involving nature & building/crafting projects. So excited to possibly win this for my kids! Thank you!
Our son is 7. I love that the curriculum is nature based. We are a outdoor family.
My 9 and 5 year old boys are perfectly suited to this curriculum, I love the gentle pace of Oak Meadow and the child-centred methods.
My kids are 13 and 5 years old. I love that Oak Meadow is nature based and I can teach them about life and living while enjoying time out of doors. I also like that I can include conservation and how we can help the Earth by doing our part to each ecosystem, in any way we can.
I have three boys ages 9, 7, and 4. One of them is homeschooled through a district partnership and another really wants to homeschool. Both the older boys have attended a Waldorf school and I love that Oak Meadow has a Waldorf inspiration but also has the structure I love about a traditional school. It’s like the best of both worlds! I would be grateful to win this curriculum to make the homeschool jump with my second kiddo.
I have 3 girls 6,4 and 2. I have been interested in starting a homeschool curriculum like this…focusing on Science, nature and family is awesome <3 thank you
I have one son who is 7 and one who will be 5 and ready for school. I am interested in first and second grade curriculum. I hadn’t heard about Oak Mwasow before, but I do like that there are many ways of teaching/learning presented.
My child is 12 and I would love to try a new way to homeschool. We have been using the same way for awhile now and this would be so refreshing for both of us.
I have shared this giveaway on fb. Thank you so much for this information and giveaway opportunity.
My kids are 10,8 and 7. I actually used oak Meadow 13 years ago when my husband and I homeschooled my brother in law ( then grade 6) on our sailboat in the Bahamas for a semester. It worked wonderfully and totally turned his academic life around!!!! Now with my three kids I’ve looked at it wistfully every year but never taken the plunge to buy the whole curriculum although I would so dearly love to.

I have two boys ages 4 and 19 mos. I like the nature inspiration and creativeness of this curriculum.

My children are 14, 10, and 5 and I just love how Oak Meadow incorporates elements from nature and the arts!
My girls are 4 & 5, wild & carefee…happiest outside. That’s a trait of southern girls I think. 😉 Oak meadow sounds like a great way to facilitate that kind of education in an planned, intentional way.
I have a 3yr old and 6 month old and love the nature based approach to learning
I have 4 boys age 8,6,5 and 8months. They love hands on learning and I would love to try Oak Meadow
I’m a homeschooling dad who has two beautiful girls, 4 and 1.5 years old. The curriculum at Oak Meadow is a comprehensive package that addresses the natural learning curiosity of learners. It is a complete package that encompasses art, music, food prep, nature, play, compassionate teaching and learning, and includes any daily life encounter that may be adapted for learning.
My kids are 5 and 3 and I love Oak Meadow’s art emphasis!

My kids are 7, 5 and 3.5 and I just recently discovered Oak Meadow and this would fit our family’s learning style so fantastically. My 7 and 5 year old boys are outside all the time, exploring and creating. Thanks for hosting a giveaway.

I have four kids:11, 10, 8, and 6. Oak Meadow appeals to me in that I like the idea of flexibility but having everything together and nature study is always something my children enjoy.
I have three children ages 7, 5, and nearly 2. We have been fairly “unschool-y” so far, but I have considered adding a slight bit of structure. I love that Oak Meadow has some structure, but is still designed to be respectful of the inner genius in each child and seeks to draw that out of them. I also love that it is now available digitally as we have spent the last three years living overseas. I have been interested in Oak Meadow for two years, but have not been able to afford to try it out. I would LOVE to win this!
I have been considering using Oak Meadow for my twins who will be in 7th grade next year. Thus far we have been using a “homemade” curriculum but I think that at their age we should be moving to a more established system while maintaining flexibility. I have heard so many awesome reviews of Oak Meadow and have looked at it online and it looks like it would really suit our family!
My 5 year old son, 1.5 year old daughter (it’s never too young to learn), and I are so thrilled to be able to leave our comments on Oak Meadow for a chance to win such an extraordinary curriculum! In a world where public learning has become such a daunting task – for student and teacher alike – it is so refreshing to see that there are institutions that genuinely care about HOW a young student of life learns about our world. I love Oak Meadow’s organic, creative, and nature-based unconventional approach to learning. That is how I teach my children and I would love to reinforce my methods with this curriculum. I pray that we win this one!!! Thank you so much for the opportunity!
As a former primary educator, I appreciate how the gentle approach of this well-organized (LOVE the layout) and easy to follow (very little prep, comparatively) curriculum honors the child’s developmental stages. The learning simply feels like living life. Additionally, it is well -rounded and subject areas are complementary – not a lot of scrambling to piece in the arts and (exceptionally compiled) sciences. This is a “best fit” curriculum for the child that would prefer to spend all their waking hours in nature and for the parent that appreciates the guidance and not “have to” approach. The content is well-written and while it does have some Waldorf influences, speaks to the needs of children today…VERY COMPREHENSIVE – without the dogma! My child has just turned 11 years old.
Thank you for this opportunity!!
My kids are 5, 8, and 9. I love the tie-ins with nature.
Hi, my kiddies are 8,6 and 3. I’ve drooled over the oak meadow curriculum many times! I love that it feels so natural, and engaging for my kids who are very artsy, crafty, out of doors kids. I also love that it’s a full curriculum so I can relax a little on the planning and organising!
My children are 4 and 6. I love that includes so much hands on and nature based learning!
Oak Meadow seems like such a gentle, and beautiful way to teach your children! Mine children are 7, 4, and 1
I have a nine year old boy and we love the outdoors and hands on activities that Oak Meadow offers.
My children’s ages are 6, 4, and 10 months. I love the experiential and joyful nature of the curriculum!
My daughter is nearly 8 and we are using Oak Meadow Grade 2 this year. The thing that really appeals to me about the curriculum is the space left for customized learning. If you don’t like the literature selection just pick another book and writing prompts will still apply. The coursework suggests that 3 sentence paragraphs are suitable for the grade level, but if you live with Wordsworth Jr. you should write more. You get the idea.
Emily’s latest post: Weekly Wrap-Up: Lesson 19
Mine are 9, 5, and 3. I like the full integration of arts and handwork and nature.
My children are 14, 12, 11, and 10. I have been curious about Oak Meadow for a couple of years now. I love the emphasis on a more natural and whole person style education. The more I research, the more I think my creative children would really benefit from Oak Meadow style learning.
Our children are ages 6, 11, and 13. Oak Meadow looks flexible, but yet structured enough for our family!
Our family has three kids ages 8,5,2 and then one to be born in March. I am drawn to the curriculum being nature based and how it works uniquely through the rhythm of the family.
My oldest son is 6. We chose to homeschool to encourage a love of learning. My house full of boys love to learn in hands-on, active ways. ????
I’d love to try the reading books life of Fred, since son is finding reading and phonics the most difficult. My boys are 6, 4, and almost 3.
I have a 9 year old and a 12 year old. We used Oak Meadow when my daughter was in 5th grade as I was able to find it used and we loved it! I would love to use it again!
My little guy is turning 5 in a few days. As someone new to homeschooling, I’m always looking for new things to try. Oak Meadow sounds wonderful! I’ve also shared this on my FB page so my homeschooling friends can enter too!
Gwen @ ButtercupsBabies.com
My children are 8, almost-6, and 3 1/2. The fact that this curriculum seems to really look at developing the WHOLE child, rather than just academics, is very appealing.
Gwen @ ButtercupsBabies.com’s latest post: Keeping little fingers busy- the “poking” job
My kids are 3, 6, and 9 and I like OM’s nature based, hand’s on study.
Our children are full of wonder and are so very curious about everything. They have imaginations that seem to go on forever. We have been using Oak Meadoe for 4 months and love how it differs from traditional school. Jackson (1st grade-6) and Beau ( Pre-k) wake each morning ready and excited to “play and learn” with Mom. We have been having so much fun learning together and discovering together. We love the opportunity that Oak Meadow has allowed for our family to grow together. Thank you!
We would really be happy to win curriculum for our next year in MomS Adventure School!!

I have a 4.5 year old gearing up for kindhearted and a toddler not far behind his big sister. I love that Oak Meadow uses stories for so much of its content, and that they work really well for bedtime.
Shared on Facebook! I love the nature based hands on study. It is one of the main reasons I have decided to homeschool this year!
10 and 7. Love the nature focus!
I have four kids 10,8,6,4. I love the nature approach. Have looked into it for my first grader.
Hands on learning is the best, it’s how we concrete things in our minds. We love to take that approach in our homeschooling. Also being nature-based is a total bonus because we are all about the outdoors and nature and taking care of the earth. Especially my 7 year old! I have a 7 year old and a 4 year old (almost 5), that will be starting Kindergarten next year.
Almost 10, 4, and 1. I like the fact that it is a nature centered curriculum.
Hi, my name is Ludovica and I have three beautiful male children aged 4,9 and 11 years old. We live in Italy and we both parents are transitioning in beginning educating our children at home. I have been interested in homeschooling since my first one was in kindergarden, although is now in secondary school that we are struggling so much with traditional school. My oldest, that is a natural, passionate learning about nature, science and a huge reader is becoming more and more dull…he doesn’t like school anymore and is very anxious. I know Oak Meadow since when Jamie Martin began blogging about it (so, more or less 6 years now) and love it. I like the approach: the respect for children different personalities and rhythms they have put into their learning resources. Seems so strange, I was just thinking about this today: how beautiful would be begin this new adventure in homeschooling having the reassurance of doing the “right thing” for my children with those great companions aside! I have no experience in homeschooling yet, but I do love my children with all my heart and I know God is preparing a new path for us all. Hope oak meadow could help us to go into this huge new adventure having the right tools to do it with confidence and enthusiasm.
I am homeschooling 4, ages 14, 11, 7 and 4. I have always been drawn to Waldorf education and would love to use it for my youngest 2 who love all things crafty and the outdoors.
My kids are 15, 12, 5, and 3. I love the fact that this curriculum is nature based!
My kids are 8, 6, 4, and 3. Oak Meadow appeals to me because of their nature-based style of learning that is flexible and can be easily adjusted to our family rhythm. I also love the choices of literature for each grade and that the kids are given an opportunity to really think critically about what they’re reading. The hands-on activities that they provide are a must as well!
My boys are 4 and 6, and love all things outdoorsy, we love learning through and about nature.
I have six children between the ages of 5 and 12.I like learning approaches that consider the whole human person and do not separate the intellect from the heart and soul. I have never tried Oak Meadows, but it looks like a very integrated curriculum and that is why I would like to try it.
My son is 9 and my daughter is 12. We do a little bit of this and that. I am trying to find our “fit” if there is such a thing. I love that Oak Meadow was created by parents and teachers who want their children to love learning. Also that it isn’t a one size fits all type of curriculum and that it allows each child to be their own person. My son is at home and my daughter is currently in a Christian school. As far as “school” goes, it is great. A much better option than others for sure. She was bored at home. We would really like to bring her home again so she can be herself and do what she is interested in. And also be the ones who are in charge of what she learns. It is hard not being involved in that and I feel like I am not doing my part. Also, she is getting caught up in the social aspect of it all & papers upon papers… I think Oak Meadow would help us to be a bit more structured but also allowing freedom. My kids both like nature, animals, arts & crafts. And Mom needs help orchestrating it all! Thank you!
My daughter is 11 and my son is 10. I’m interested in this curriculum because it seems to be well rounded and integrated.
Shared on Facebook as well.
My child is 6 years old. What I have come to love about Oak Meadow is the fact of its flexibility and usability. It is detailed yet not overwhelming, and challenging but not so much that you do not want to grow. The curriculum shows a great deal of balance, beautiful art and science and great use of math and language. I’ve been searching for something like this for a long while. I would hope to use it. It’s brilliant!
My boys are 13 and 10, both have special needs but different needs. Have always wanted to try Oak Meadow especially for my 10 year old. From what I have read it sounds perfect for them!
this looks like it could be a good fit for my 7 yr old daughter who loves to read and explore. she is 7 yrs old
I have 4 kids 24 and 18 and 7 yr and 1 yr old
My children are 6 and 8. We love the outdoors through all seasons and the flexibily to be there as part of our homeschool learning. It sounds to me like Oak Meadows would be a good fit for that part of us!!:)
My kids are 2, 4, 5 and 7. I love the flexibility and the hands-on approach of Oak Meadows.

My kids are 8, 6, and 3. I have always wanted to try Oak Meadow but have never felt confident enough to buy a whole curriculum package. The gentle, natural, organic mood of this curriculum is what really intrigues me!
I have 2 boys – 4 and 6 years. I love how holistic Oak Meadow is – it focuses on the whole child.
I have a 4, 3, 1, and 3 month old. We really love the outdoors and am interested to see all that this curriculum has to offer and the felixibility unique to our family.

I have a 6, 4 and 1 year old. I like the idea of it being nature based

My kids are 7, 5 & 3. And the idea of something I can just follow along with at our speed sounds amazing
I have a 5 and 7 year old. We live outdoors and hands on learning:)
The children I still have at home are 17, 11 and 6. I only recently discovered Oak Meadow and I’m really intrigued. I keep returning to the website because as I’ve moved through various teaching stages (over 17years) I find us more and more outdoors, following the childrens dreams, interests and joys. I love the gentle and natural approach to learning the Oak Meadows offers. We were already considering it for next year’s curriculum!
I also shared the giveaway on Facebook!
My oldest is 6, so we’re just starting our homeschooling journey, but I’ve heard great things about Oak Meadow and would love to try it!

My children are 5,4 and 2.5. This is my first year homeschooling and am always looking for great new resources, information and material. My kids love being outdoors and a curriculum that catered to that passion sounds awesome!
I have 3 boys; 8, 5, and 2. What appeals most to us is that its free and open learning. My boys are all over the place and being able to take them out into the world around us and teach them is priceless and, well that is why we homeschool!
My kids are 7 and 9. I love the nature based curriculum and I have wanted to try this for awhile now and would love to win it!
My kids are 7,8 & 10. We love learning at our own pace, Oak Meadows seems a good fit for us.

Thanks for the opportunity to win, good luck everyone!
My son is 13 and I like the whole child and hands on approach of Oak Meadow. Thank you for the chance to win!
Age 2 1/2 but I already getting excited, love the stories and love the wonder in learning.
My kids are 7, 5, and 1. I love the Waldorf inspired aspect of Oak Meadow, but that it’s secular, nature based, and so well organized! 🙂 We’d love to win a second grade copy!
My kids are 6/kindergarten, 10/4th grade, 12/6th grade, and 15/9th grade. I love that oak Meadow is developmentally appropriate with a clear, easy to follow layout.
My kids are 6,4, and 1. I would say that the organic approach is what interests me the most.
My children are 7 & 2. We’ve been using Oak Meadow for the last 2 years. The materials are very engaging for my son and I like the way the weekly lessons are laid out for me.
My children are ages 21, 13, 8, and 5. I love that the holistic approach of OM meets the needs of my children.
My son is 7 and we love Oak Meadow. Its a great curriculum for my family because my son has ADHD and sensory precessing disorder and it gives him lots of hands on activities to do, this is great to keep his mind busy and focused. We would love to win grade three of this wonderful curriculum 🙂
Opps saw my earlier comment, I didn’t think I actually entered yet. Please forgive my commenting twice and still consider us 🙂
My kids 9, 7, 5, and 1. I like the looks of Oak Meadow for the living books.
My daughter is 7 and currently in 1st grade. She loves Oak Meadow. I honestly don’t think that there is anything that she doesn’t like. It has helped foster a LOVE of learning. What I love is the mindfulness component. The curriculum is so deep, gentle and takes time. My daughter is in the present. She develops understanding from the very foundation and has an opportunity to learn things that she wouldn’t otherwise get to. Plus, we get outside all of the time; she is in a natural state the majority of the time instead of an artificial box. Thank you!!
I have two children, aged 5 and 2.5. We have recently decided to start our homeschooling journey and I love this curriculum because it encourages what matters most to us: freedom of expression and a love for our natural surroundings!

My kids are 9 and 4 (twins). We love the nature based, art and literature focused feel of Oak Meadow.
My kids are now 11 and 8 and I like the gentle approach Oak Meadow offers. I am exploring it as an option for the coming school year, to give us a little more guidance and independence.
Nicola’s latest post: 366: 18
My children are 3 and 8. Setting our own rhythm sounds perfect for us – my son marches to the beat of his own drum and definitely benefits from flexibility in his learning.
My boys are 2 and 4, my oldest will be 5 in the fall. I really like the idea of a creative and hands on focus and the flexibility to incorporate it into our family’s rythym. We would love the opportunity to give it a try!
My son is 13, and I love that older students can use your curriculum to be responsible in part for their own learning! What a wonderful way to help prepare them for all the responsibilities they will soon have to tackle on their own.
My guy will be 6 next week and I love the hands on approach of Oak Meadow!

My children are 5 and 10 , Oak Meadow curriculum would allow me to teach how a child should learn.
I have a 7 year old, and I like that Oak meadow feels like a more balanced waldorf approach. I like a lot about waldorf but there are things I don’t love and it feels like Oak meadow strikes a very good balance between real world needs and waldorf education.
My eight year old daughter will be homeschooling next year. We are going to be traveling. I love the distance learner choice. The natural organic learning of Oak Meadow appelies to us.
My boys are 4 and 11. 0ak meadow appeals to me because it is organized, user friendly, with plenty of room for creativity.
My kids are 1 and 4.5. We will be starting K next year with my oldest who is a nature girl! I think she would love a nature based curriculum!! Thank you!

Our kids are: 10, 8, 4, 2.5, & 5.5 months! 🙂 I’ve been homeschooling since my oldest was 4, and I’ve always just pieced together his(and his brother’s) lessons for the week. Nature has always been a big focus for our kids, and I would love a curriculum that is based on that! Perfect.

I have a 10 year old and a 7 year old, I love the idea of nature based learning and hands ons !
My ADHD son needs lots of hands on activities and outdoor time to have a calm peaceful day. He has really struggled in the pencil and paper curriculum at the school he has been in. We have already pulled him out of it and are working on a curriculum for right now, but we are looking for an “accredidated curriculum ” to use for next year.
My 4.5 year old loves the natural world and Oak Meadow’s efforts to keep little ones connected to the world around them makes it a great choice for our family.
My kids that are homeschooled are 7, 8, 11, and 12 (1-6th grades). We love hands on activities and nature, so Oak Meadow’s curriculum sounds great!
My children, ages 10, 8, 6, 3, 15 months, we like Oak Meadow’s approach through hands on learning and his Language Arts and History are combined. Thank you!

Hi, My kids are 9,8 and 3. My school days/years where I few up (Europe) were quite different then here in US. Many times we learned outdoors, in nature, exploring, taking care of it and learning from it. I would love for my kids to go through the same or very similar, and Oak Meadow is so close to what I want. Thank you for giving me a chance to be part of it.

I’m a homeschooling mother of five. I love looking at your material
My oldest is 10 and we are currently using Oak Meadow’s 6th grade curriculum. We’ve particularly enjoyed the history curriculum, and love that the ancient civilizations book is global in scope, rather than just limited to the Greece/Rome/Egypt trifecta.
My kids are almost 7, almost 4, and 8 months. I would love to try this with my kids. The natural, creative, and hands-on learning sound just lovely.

My kids are 5 and 6 and I like how beautiful but still flexible Oak Meadow is.

My kids are 6 (almost 7), 5 and 21 months. I like how hands on it seems to be.
This looks like a beautiful curriculum.

I have a 10 year old and a 5 month old. We have used Oak Meadow from 1st grade through 5th and love how it is organized.
I have an 11, 10, and 8 year old, and a 12 month old. I love that they can work at their own pace!
My children are in preschool and kindergarten this year. We love to explore nature and both of my kids do their best with hands on activities. We would enjoy this curriculum very much!
My kids are 10,8, and 5. I love that Oak Meadow is nature-inspired.
3 boys- 9, 7 and 3. The rhythm and the focus on nature!
Hi! My kiddos are 7, 5, and 10 months. We have used Oak Meadow and love the art and nature based learning. Oak Meadow has heart; it’s not just fact memorization. Thank you!
My kids are 14, 12, 9, 7, 3 and a 15 month old. We are longtime homeschoolers and we love to be outside and use a lot of child-led learning. I love Oak Meadow’s nature-based and slow approach to child development. I just purchased my first bit of Oak Meadow – 8th grade Civics. I would love to do a whole year 7th or 8th with my 2 older kids.
And I shared on facebook 🙂
I also shared for the extra entry. Thanks again!
I have 4 boys ages 9, 6, 4, & 2 and we live on a small rural farm. We spend a lot of time outdoors and around our animals, so I believe this curriculum would be perfect for us.
My boys are 5 and 8 and we are part of a homeschool co-op that is waldorf inspired and love many things about it. I have looked into Oak Meadow many times but have never taken the plunge as we have tended to lean a little more on the unschool side. But as my oldest gets older I think we would really benefit from having a more structured curriculum to follow and I think Oak Meadow would provide the happy medium we are looking for.
We have three boys, 7, 4, and 1. We love the outdoors and choosing how, what, where and when we learn!
Just shared on Facebook!
I have a 9, 7, & 5 year old. I think Oak Meadow’s nature and creative aspects would be perfect especially for my middle child. She’s my little nature fairy monkey.
Our ten year old child enjoys the activities suggested with the Oak Meadow lessons. Hands-on learning at its best!

hi, my boys are 10,12 and 14 yrs old. I have longed for a chance to school with your curriculum for YEARS! our neighbor had it and let me look it over…and my dreaming began! I love that you include everything…that it is so well organized. but,i must say that the part I like best is just that really good feeling I had when reading through it….you cant explain a feeling like that..it just happens and you know it’s “right”.
I have two boys, ages 5 and 3. We LOVE being outside and are about to move to a neighborhood with a big park that has more than just a playground – it has miles of walking/biking trails and a creek running through it!
My kids are 6 and 2. My daughter is currently in public school but it just doesnt feel like a good fit and Oak Meadow is the only home school curriculum that resonated with me while researching different options. I like that is has some structure but also gives you ideas to open it up for different types of play and exploration.
Thanks for the chance to win…cheers!
I have a 3 and 6 year old. We’re half way through grade 1 and love it. I like how easy it is to modify and how down to earth the curriculum is. My son enjoys the various activities and is not easily please with typical learning strategies:)
My kids are 13, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, and 4 months. I love the integration of nature in this curriculum! It teaches the child as a natural whole…not found in very many curriculums!
Shared on FB!
I have a 6, 5, 3, and 7 month old. Would love to have the opportunity to try this curriculum. We’re Just falling into our style and oak meadow is relaxed, fun, and explorative which seems like a good fit for our relaxed style but it also gives this unorganized mama some guidance. 🙂
My son is 13 and the oldest of five but the only homeschooler we have right now. We are using Calvert this year but would love to try oak meadow mostly for the project based learning. It seems as soon as we get interested in a subject we have to move on so I get the feeling we are touching all these great thoughts but never really connecting to them. There is just not enough room in my life right now to do all the extras I would love to do but it seems oak meadow builds them into the curriculum.
My children are 5&3, of course, I’m interested in the kindergarten program. I’m in this abyss of options, but I can say that the nature thing really strikes me as effective. I also appreciate the fact that it’s been currently updated. That tells me the process of provided current material is ongoing. Of course, I cannot lie – the free thing really piques my interest. Thanks for the opportunity!
Hey, thanks for extra entry for my sharing your details!
My kids are 5.5, and 2 and I have been interested in Oak Medow for our first official year of homeschooling this fall. We are waldorfish in our home and want to continue with nature based learning.
I have an 8 yo and we are new to homeschooling! I would love to have a chance to try out a nature-based curriculum that is so thoughtfully put together.
I have an almost 9 year old and a 10 year old. I like the idea of getting outdoors and away from the computers.
I have a twelve and an eleven year old. My kids are very interested in nature and very hands on learners. I think my oldest with autism would truly benefit from this program.
I have 3 daughters, ages 7, 4 and 2. I am very intrigued by this being a nature based program.
My kiddos are 2, 4 and 6. I love how Oak Meadow includes more art and nature, which I have a harder time incorporating.
I have two boys age 7 and 9. I am intrigued by the flexibility of the oak meadow program and how comprehensive it is. For a mom who is on the cusp of jumping into homeschooling, oak meadow would take some of the guesswork away so I can decote my faculties to other tasks.
My boys are 6 and 3 and we live the Waldorf style and natural learning aspect!
We have 2 sets of twin boys, age 4 and 9. We love the outdoors and really value the flexibility this curriculum seems to offer. We would love to give it a try!
Shared on Facebook as well!
I have a 5 year old who will be homeschooling for the first time next year for kindergarten. He loves nature and the outdoors. I would love to use your curriculum for him. We are also looking to incorporate a Forrest School co-op as well. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!
My children are 5 and 6. We love Oak Meadow because it makes what we do naturally more organized and focused.
My daughter is 10 (and has a 5-month old sister). We love Oak Meadow because of the creativity involved in the lesson plans and because it allows us to go at a pace that works best for us.
My daughter is10 and is in 5th grade.
We’ve used oak meadow over the last few years and we do enjoy the flexibility. It’s thorough. Looking forward to seeing the new changes made in 2015.
I have 9 & 11 year olds. Oak Meadow appeals to me, as it seems to take into consideration the unique needs and interests of children, is flexible, and nature based.
My boys are 12, 10 and 7 and they have always learned best thru hands-on and also need to be outdoors and active throughout our day! (which are qualities I like in Oak Meadows)
I shared on FB
I am wanting to homeschool our almost 4yr old son.
I just learned about Oak Meadows the other day from another homeschooling family. And after discussing with them their experience with the program, it could just be the one I’ve been looking for.
I want a well rounded, secular, program that will fit into our creative and active lifestyle. We are a family of doing, so sitting at a desk all day would never fly.
Thank you for the chance to be able to apply the program that seems to be a perfect fit for us.
I’m so excited! It would be so awesome to try out this curriculum. We have 2 children currently learning at home, a 7 year old and a 5 year old. We also have 2 little’s, a 2 year old and a 5 month old. Looking through the curriculum, I like how it is all laid out, all listed together, no flipping through 5 different lesson plan books, it’s all together. The variety of topics looks really fun and engaging. Here’s hoping for the chance to fall in love with a new curriculum!
I have 3 boys, ages 10, 7 and 2. I like that Oak Meadow is hands on because my boys do best with that kind of learning.
My children are 14, 13,10 and 5. I love that Oak Meadow is organic and is easy blend into different learning styles and routines. My children deserve to be taught the way they learn best yet we can still come together as a family to learn together !! Thank you
I have a 4.5 year old daughter we’ve been homeschooling for preschool and another baby due in April. I’ve been looking at curriculum for her kindergarten year and Oak Meadow seems like a great fit for our nature loving family!
My kids are 4, 2 and 24 weeks in utero. I will just be starting homeschool with my oldest and I want something flexible and substantive. This curriculum looks to be just that. I’ve seen the sample and have already identified places where I could add and adjust to fit what she already knows, or doesn’t know. Thanks for the opp!
My kids are 9, 11 and 13. I enjoy the fact that Oak Meadow allows my children to use their creativity while they learn.
My children are 5 and 8. I love that Oak Meadow is secular and flexible.
Hi! My boys are 9, 6, and 1. I love that Oak Meadow is flexible and nature based. We spend a lot of time outdoors, and I feel like this curriculum would be perfect for my creative kiddos! Thank you !
I shared on Facebook! 🙂
My kids are 13, 8, and 6. I love the Waldorf approach to education! Would love this so much!
My children are 6.5, 2.5, and 13 months. We used Oak Meadow for kinder and my daughter and I both loved the connection to nature and the arts, an area lacking in many complete curriculums. We are planning to use it again for 2nd grade in the fall after trying to piece together different things myself this year. The revised materials look fantastic and it would be so helpful to win this.
My girls are 6&8 and love artistic outdoor approach to life. So what appeals to me is the way my girls learn now and what oak meadow offers the natural materials and outdoor play emphasis and learning from nature. Also my daughter Ayla’s name means oak tree;) !!!!!
I have a 6 and 1 year old, and I enjoy the natural flow of learning from oak meadow- how it feels like a conversation instead of a lesson.
Hi! Our munchkins are 9, 6.5, 3, and 10 months. I’ve been interested in Oak Meadow for ages because it really sounds like a lovely curriculum that seamlessly blends into life, an education that isn’t separate from your day to day living. It sounds like a really sweet way to learn 🙂 Thank you for the great giveaway! xo
Hi, we have 3 adult children, a 12, 11 and 2.5 toddler at home. I’m very interested in Oak Meadow curriculum and would love to use it for my children. Our 2.5 especially.
My kids are 11 & 14 yo and I love how Oak Meadow is nature based. I believe my kids will love learning with more of a Waldorf approach. Thank you!
My kids are almost 5, 3 and 1. So we’re at the very beginning of the homeschooling journey. The oak Meadow curriculum looks like an amazing fit for our family. The flexibility and nature aspects especially.
We have an 8 year old, a 4 hear old, a 2 year old and an 8 month old!! The ORGANIC, natural, raw goodness that makes homeschooling simple and enjoyable has really kept me interested in purchasing this curriculum. If I don’t win of course!
My children are 5.5, 6.5 and 3 and due to their special needs, Oak Meadow is the ONLY curriculum that they have ever engaged with so it has made a life changing difference for us!
The children love the magical feel to the subjects and love to be creative – they are stimulated and really get into each weekly task while still having lots and lots of down time for play.
Thank you for opening the competition to international customers – Oak Meadow is still quite unknown here in the UK but this will not be the case for long! We would absolutely LOVE to win this giveaway 🙂
Hi! I have a 10-year old sister and 15-year old broter who do homeschooling. What I love about Oak Meadow is its sincerity in helping to enhance the homescholing journey and its useful resources and links!
Hello from Manila! I have an 8yo son and a 4yo daughter. We’re homeschooling basically because my son has hearing impairment and Apraxia and I believe in respecting his pace and uniqueness, that a boxed school setting cannot easily provide. As both kinesthetic learners I want them to have options to learn at their own liking but at the same time I have a guide to help me. Oak Meadow would be perfect!
My son is almost 6 and I have twin babies on the way. We haven’t used a curriculum so far, but I think it will be very useful to keep me focused through the first few months of sleepless nights and endless feeding! I like the way that Oak Meadow includes relationships and empathy in the curriculum, as I feel that these are important and often overlooked.
Hello, I have a 4 y.o. boy and a 2 y.o. girl. We live in Dubai, UAE. What we like about Oak Meadow is their Natural and Outdoor approach and Waldorf influence. We have not have personal experience yet with the curriculum but this is the one we have chosen for our 4 y.o. Thank you for the chance!
I have shared this post on my FB page. Fingers crossed 🙂
I have a 3.5 yr old and I’ve been looking into their kindergarten curriculum. I love how relaxed it is and doesn’t push children too hard.
I shared on Facebook!
My son is four and we use oak meadow’s preschool curriculum. I love how nature centered oak Meadow is.
So excited that there’s finally an international guveaway 😉 we are in South Africa. I have 3 children aged 3, 9 & 17 that are being homeschooled. What I love moat about Oak Meadow is the xlose to nature lessons and the lack of religious affiliation
My kids are 3 1/2, 18 months, and baby due in March! As I have never had hands on experience with Oak Meadow (yet!), I feel like Oak Meadow would be the perfect curriculum to jump start our homeschool experience as my oldest will be starting kindergarten work next fall. I am trying to find something we can easily adapt to our schedule as I will have a baby wanting to explore and a very active toddler too. I am always drooling over their curriculum packages when deciding what program to try. Oak Meadow is top of my list as my oldest and Her love for nature coincides with Oak Meadows organic approach to learning, I feel like it would be the perfect fit.
I have one daughter who will be in 4th grade. We are going on well with our eclectic curriculum but Oak Meadow is quite appealing to us! My daughter loves nature, science, play, and stories; this sounds like such a great fit.
I love that oak meadow is written with a child’s level of development in mind. As an adult you might read the text and think it seems easy or light-but this was written for you. It was actually written in a way your child can read it themselves and it speaks to them. I am getting ready to start my third round of fifth grade with oak Meadow-our version is the old one and I would love to update (my kids are 6 years apart). I’ve always kept my oak Meadow books because it is my favorite curriculum:)
I have four children, three of which will benefit directly from this awesome curriculum. They are 5, 5 and 6. I love that their curriculum is complete but I will be able to supplement with our project based learning too!
My kids are 11,8,6,4. My 3 younger are boys and love hands-on learning.
My amazing Kiddo’s are –
13 (8th grade)
11- (5th grade)
2- ( investigation of her world and making large messes in the process!! 🙂
I am interested in the nature based curriculum . I LOVE this concept. 🙂 thank you!!
My kids are 7 and 10. We have used Oak Meadow in the past and are looking to get back to it for my 4th grader. We are looking for the structure that this wonderful curriculum provides. I love the focus on nature and arts, and the hands-on learning style is perfect for both of my children. Thanks for this opportunity!
I have a 3 year old and one on the way. This approach to learning looks natural and would fit our family well.
My kids are ages 9 and 12. I’m drawn to Oak Meadow for many reasons, including the emphasis on gentle learning, creativity and family routines.
I homeschool my 12yo son, 8yo son and 4yo daughter. I’m very interested in oak meadow as it follows some of the waldorf philosophies yet laid out and goes through high school, so I wouldn’t have to do transition do other curriculums. I’m interested in 4th and 7th grades.
I have kids, ages 10, 8, 5, and a baby and I think Oak Meadow would be a great fit bc we love exploring nature and we love the rhythm of the seasons.
My kids are 8 and 11. We received Oak Meadow’s ancient history and English book from a friend, and my son has been enjoying the independent nature of its lessons.
My children are 9, 7 and 1. We love Oak Meadows gentle more natural approach to leaning. Looking through the grades we love how the skills progress and the lessons seem to grow with the child. We are looking forward to using Oak meadow throughout the rest of our children’s schooling.
2 boys, ages 11 and 13. I am planning to switch to Oak Meadow for my younger boy next year and in 9th grade for my older one. I think they are going to love the variety in assignments and flexibility of the curriculum.
2 boys ages 5 and 3. I love Oak Meadows philosophy of an inch wide, a mile deep. Would love this curriculum as it closely mirrors our educational ideals.
My kids are 10, 7, 4 and almost 1. We love the outdoors and I’ve always been tempted to try Oak Meadow.
We love Oak Meadow. This year, we used a used version of K and 5th, due to costs. I would LOVE to be able to purchase the newest versions for next year, by winning this contest. Winning this would mean so much to our family. Oak Meadow allows me the freedom to homeschool in the way children learn.
I have 3 children (with a mind to possibly have more), a 5 year old daughter, 3.5 year old son, and a 10 month old son. We are currently exploring nature based learning. What appeals to me about Oak Meadow is the focus on relationships. My main personal goal for homeschooling my children is fostering positive relationships in our family. I want my kids to grow up into emotionally healthy, confident, kind, and self motivated adults. I also want to preserve their childhood and encourage their interests, play, and individual learning styles. I believe Oak Meadow will allow me to not only do that, but cater and adjust to the age range I am working with. Thank you for the opportunity!
My boys are 9, 7, and 5. We do a lot of nature study and experiential learning. I would love to have a more formal structure for my 9-year-old but still incorporate the ideals Oak Meadow has to offer. I love the holistic approach of Oak Meadow.
My sons are 6.5 and 22 months. I live the nature focus of oak meadow and the waldorf approach. Thanks for offering this giveaway.
My kids are 8, 6, 5, 2, and 7 months. I love the nature focus!
My kids are 9, 6, and 3. I’ve always liked the idea of doing school this way, and we currently follow the classical method with books that I’ve put together. What I like about Oak Meadow is that they have hands on projects laid out for you. That is the area I fall short in-I’m good with the reading and basic subjects, but it’s easy to “not have time” to do the extra hands on stuff! I will be looking into Oak Meadow even if I don’t win!
My children are 5 and 2, and there’s so much I like about Oak Meadow after just skimming through the details on their website. If I have to pick one thing, it would be that they value educating the whole child.
What a brilliant giveaway! I have an 8, a 6 and a 2 year old and I homeschool them using waldorf principles. I have heard that Oak Meadow is really well planned and easy to use, which sounds brilliant. Thanks!
My 12 yr old and I would love to try this. He is a very hands on and visual learner. I love the instructions for math! Hope to win!
Oak Meadow is the top home schooling tool. The courses integrate natural learning geared toward individual success. My Grandchildren are 4 and 6, living out of the country and could flourish with the Oak Meadow program.
I would love to win this because I have been looking for something more laid back and fun for my 9, 7,5 and 1 year old. As our family grows larger I see the value of natural learning and making it enjoyable.
My girls are 5 and 7. We have been borrowing the Oak Meadow curriculum from friends and love it. I love how gentle it is as we meander through stories and our natural world and it’s rhythms.
My children are 7, 5, 2, and 1. I love that Oak Meadow would allow me to teach my children the way I believe in, without me creating all the curriculum from scratch to pull it off. That would free me up top spend more time doing and learning alongside my children!
Shared and liked on Facebook. 🙂
my children are 6, 8 and 10. I’d love the grade 6 curriculum, it suits her learning style and seems to be a great combination of structure and creative freedom
I will be using the K curriculum with my 5 year old in the Fall. We are so impressed with the natural, organic, unhurried approach to learning that preserves and nourishes the inherent wonder of childhood.
Oh so wonderful! Thanks for the chance!
We have five children 7, 6, 4, and 2 y/o twins. I love the flexibility of Oak Meadows and think it would be a great fit for our family.
My kids are nearly two and six months. We’re just starting on our education journey and what really appeals to me about oak meadow is it’s slow pace and gentle style!
3 and 1. I’m ramping up to homeschool the 3yo and am interested in the material and its approach to using nature in learning
Shared on Facebook as well.
My kids are 9, 7 and 2.5. I love the nature and artsy aspect of Oak Meadow. My daughter especially is a nature lover and artist and would love it!
My son is 11. He has special needs, so for us, learning at his own rhythm is paramount.
My kids are 8, 6 & 3. Your curriculum appeals to me because of it’s natural, gentle, unstructured approach. And we LOVE the outdoors!
My child is 5 and I like oakmeadow for its natural approach to learning.
My kids are 5 and 2. We are gearing up to start Kindergarten in the fall and I just love the approach to learning Oak Meadow takes. Love the strong connection to nature and gentle pace.

Shared both! Thanks for this giveaway!
We love how Oak Meadow works with our relaxed homeschooling style. We are able to make it work for our lifestyle rather then it dictating us. Its gentle yet encourages deep understanding.
My children are 10, 8 & 7
My children are 3, 6, 8 and 9 and we’d love to try out oak meadow’s curriculum for its nature based approach. We haven’t done a curriculum as such and I think all my kids would really love it and gain from it. Thanks simple homeschool and oak meadow!
I would love to try this out. I have hesitated most years in buying the curriculum, but as our home life changes, i think we could benefit from a little structure and would love to try out the 1st grade curriculum with my middle. My kids are 2, 6 & 8
My children are 2, 9, and 11. I would love to try Oak Meadow because it looks like such a fun and relaxed way to learn. Thanks for the chance!
My kids are 2, 4, 6 and 8. I would love this curriculum because we just moved onto three acres and we love being outside. I also love the idea of having a complete curriculum!
My boys are 5.5 and nearly 4. I’ve been eyeing Oak Meadow for years- I love the nature & art influences and the stories. My oldest just barely makes the school cut-off age here with his late fall birthday, and I think OM is gentle enough that I can keep him grade level without demanding too much of a younger first grader next year.
I have 7 children ages 21, 19, 17, 13, 11, 6, & 3. (2 are finished schooling) & I’m always looking for curriculum that can adapt to the different learning styles of my children. Oak Meadow is so well laid out making it easy to use which with multiple grades is a real pleaser!
Our daughter is 5. I love the hands-on activities and curriculum that Oak Meadow offers

My kids are 5, 2 and baby. My baby sister has been in Waldorf school for years ands I love it!! I can neither afford to sends my kids to private school nor want to, Oak meadow seems like a very Waldorfy way to homeschool.
My children are 4 and 6 years old. They are both kinesthetic learners and enjoys hands-on activities and crafts, all of which are included in the Oak Meadow curriculum.
My children and 9 and 5. Oak meadow has always appealed as it seems that it would be a natural continuation of the way we learn at home. Sadly the cost of two packages per year prohibits it for us.
I’d love a copy of this curriculum. It sounds just what we need.
I was so eager to enter the giveaway, that I
totally forgot to answer the question ???? i have two boys, 4 and 2. I really like the hands-on approach and I’m sure my kids would too!!!
I have 2 daughters who are 7 and 5 and would love to try it – especially art and other waldorf infulences
My daughter is 11 years old. We are currently using the 5th grade OakMeadow curriculum and LOVE it. I like how each lesson is based on a week, which gives us just enough of a guideline of how much learning we need to complete on a daily basis. In the english and history book, I also love how children are giving several different choices when it comes to writing assignments. The thought of winning this giveaway is awesome!

I have three girls: 2,6,11. I love the Waldorf infused nature aspect. I really want to try it. It sounds open and engaging. I am so happy about this give away!!
My oldest is four years old and I’ve been looking into the oak meadow curriculum for her upcoming kindergarten year. I love that a simple, nurtured childhood is honored (and not rushed) by the oak meadow curriculum.
My son is nine years old, and I have been looking forward to using Oak Meadow with him for Fifth Grade. I love the depth of thinking and the real learning it requires, as well as its flexibility.

What a lovely giveaway!
I’m currently homeschooling our 5.5 & 3 year old. We live in a forest on a mountainside so a huge appeal for me is the nature based learning & rhythm. Another appeal is that homeschooling has been harder than I expected with a 6 week old baby & some curriculum direction would be fabulous! Thank you for the opportunity.
Isis Loran – Little Mountain Haven’s latest post: A Baby!! + Homestead Accomplishments of 2015
My children are 6 and 2, for us the curriculum would mean being able to start home-educating without such worry over what lessons to plan. ”Learning with not only their heads but hearts and hands as well” makes Oak meadows particularly appealing.
I am a certified Montessori mom and currently homeschooling my 7 yo and 2 with K12 curriculum as supplement.
Been visited a Waldorf school in Aspen long ago and loved the philosophy of the Waldorf.
But, haven’t gone through thoroughly about Oak Meadow and would love to learn more.
Would be lovely to know more …as I’m thinking of changing curriculum.
My son is three and I have been looking at Oak Meadow’s Pre-K and K programs. I love their Waldorf-style, nature inspired curriculum’s.
Oh Jamie, this is such an amazing opportunity – thank you. We’d love to be lucky enough to win our next OM program which will be G4, and in the new, revised program that I’m excited about moving onto in that school year.
We are a Waldorf inspired family. We love that Oak Meadow grew out of a rich foundation of those beautiful Waldorf values and has developed such an enriching program through the years that weaves in modern day education to these mindful principles. For us, we find Oak Meadow to be a wonderfully well rounded program. The way the lessons and material are laid out in a very easy to follow way makes ‘digesting’ the information and presenting enriching lessons, very efficient. Prior to finding Oak Meadow I was being further and further consumed by monumental planning time needed to work material I was collecting into a program. Oak Meadow’s program is organised in such a user friendly manner and the material they give is so spot on for where it needs to be in meeting the child where they are developmentally and along their incarnation path. I honestly cannot speak highly enough of the program and the way our children and ourselves are being enriched from being an Oak Meadow Family.
My kids are 7,5, and 14 months. We are hybrid homeschooling at the moment and I’m not feeling good about the program we are enrolled in. This curriculum win would be such a blessing. I’d love to work at my kids own pace and be encouraged to learn as we go. We already love nature and have our happiest moments when we are out exploring and enjoying the beautiful world around us. Thanks for hosting this giveaway.
I have 2 kids 6 and 10. I love the Oak Meadow gentle, creative approach. The nature study emphasis is attractive too.
My tinies are 1, 3 & 5. We adore exploring, adventuring and learning in natural environments & using our surroundings to connect topics and life skills together. Oak Meadow would be such a delightful addition to our natural learning routines and rituals.
I have 4 children aged 15, 12, 8 and 3. My 8 year old is a tree climbing, nature loving, plant growing, centipede searching bundle of energy and hugs and I find it difficult to find enough activities to keep him motivated and educationally occupied! The Oak Meadow curriculum would be the perfect way for me to ensure he was getting the most out of his boundless enthusiasm for life. Also his name, Oakley, means ‘oak meadow’ so he would be completely thrilled by that!
My children are 15, 13, and 11 years old. Oak Meadow interests me because it’s roots in Waldorf and encourages creativity and intellectual development through hands-on activities and interdisciplinary projects.

My kids are 13 and 17. Oak Meadow looks like a very good fit for my family.
This is our first year for Oak Meadow. My 9 year old loves it and we look forward to using it for next year! Thanks 🙂
Oh thank you for this chance!
My son is 8 years old, my daughter is 5.5. We are doing 2nd grade and Kindergarten now. I also have a just about 2 year old. OM looks like something that could help me out a great deal!
And I shared on facebook!
Thanks for the try again. Always have been interested in Oak Meadow!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have two children 3 and 7 years. I would love to use Oak meadow for my eldest as I think it would suit his nature and intrinsic connection to nature.
Got my email address slightly wrong in this one. I corrected it for the shared on fb comment!
Shared on Facebook 🙂
We have 3 kids ages 12, 8 and 6. The engaging and hands on learning would really suit my active and creative kids.
I have two 5, almost 6 year olds. They are nature loving artists and this curriculum seems right up their alley, while helping me stay on task!
I have an 8-year old son and I think nature based learning and hands on activities would be a great fit for him. He has ADHD and sensory issues so a regular sit and do worksheet type education doesn’t work so well for him.
I have 3.5 yr old daughter and 6mths old son, I intend to homeschool and I am open to new ideas. Show me why this is the best curriculum 🙂
My girls are 6 and 8. We love all things flexible and nature based. I’m especially interested in Oak Meadows because we will be moving soon from California to New York. Due to the more stringent homeschool laws in New York, I’m looking for ways to satisfy the states requirements.

Our kids are 9 and 3 – both boys. We are very nature focused. I like that the curriculum is fairly comprehensive.
I have 3 boys, ages 9, 8 and 5 and I love the thought of a nature-based curriculum with lots of hands-on learning!
Our children are 6 and 8, daughter and son. We are a pretty laid back family and Oak Meadow appears to fit us from all the research I’ve done. But I’ve been hesitant to make the investment. Hope we could win.
I have a 3, 13, and 17 year old. I like that the curriculum is not only student centered and nature based but provides organizational tools to help make sure you are on track.
I am homeschooling my 7 year old daughter. She loves learning about the natural world, enjoys handwork and we like to do projects for science and social studies with hands-on experiences. While we have eclectically approached K and first grade, utilizing some Waldorf philosophies, we would love to use Oak Meadow for second grade.
P S I shared on Facebook too!

I have a 4 & 7 year old. I like that it’s nature-based & flexible – sounds great!
My children are 9 and 6. I love how gentle the program is, and how it meets all their developmental needs, even as they change throughout the year.
I shared this on Facebook.
This looks like a great option for us, as we’re considering homeschooling for next year.
My children are 9, 6 and 2 and there are so many things we adore about Oak Meadow. The top of the list has to be that this program allows my children the ability to have the childhood they deserve, the one I always dreamed they’d have!
Shared on Facebook as well!
My children are 10, 2 1/2 and 8 months! Although we’ve been homeschooling for almost 4 years now, I’ve only recently come to realize so many of my own philosophies and goals align with Waldorf education. I am excited about Oak meadow because the lessons are already laid out. That means a lot to a mom with tiny babies afoot!
I have twins who are 5 (“and a half,” they would want me to add). I like how the arts are integral to the Oak Meadow curricula. Thanks for this chance to win a copy!
I have a gifted 5 year old and an almost 3 year old who likes to “do school too.” 🙂 I really like that Oak Meadow encourages family rhythms and adaptability rather than rigid structures like so many other curricula.
Shared on Facebook. 🙂
My kids are 5, 3, and baby. I love that Oak Meadow is Waldorf-inspired.
My kids are 7 and 3. From what I have read about Oak Meadow, I love the feel of it–just seems right. Of course, I love the emphasis on the arts and nature.
My children are 4, 2, and 8 months so I am very new to homeschooling. Once our family made the decision to choose this type of learning and I started my curriculum research, Oak Meadow is exactly what I was looking for my young learners! I love the idea of a hands on approach and a day to day plan but go at your own pace curriculum, I know every child has his/her own way of learning and pace and this looks like the best start for us!!!
My kids are 4,6, and 9 and we love Oak Meadow because it’s open and go, and it’s very laid back.
I have a 10 yo, almost 2 to and am due with our third in a few weeks! I love Oak Meadow’s hands-on project approach. There’s very little screen time, it’s nature based and centered around nurturing the child. I love all of the connections my daughter makes between subjects as well! I shared this through the Facebook link for an extra entry! 🙂
Thank you for this generous giveaway, and a chance to win. 🙂 My children are 5 and 2. I love that Oak Meadow is a whole child approach that speaks to a child’s emotional, physical, and academic development. My older child is currently using Oak Meadow kindergarten, and the stories and activities apopeal to her, and fit well into our days of play and outdoor time. I really appreciate the beauty of the curriculum, and look forward to continuing on through the grades. 🙂
Hello! What an awesome giveaway!
My children are 7, 6, and 2 and we love homeschooling!! What I love about Oak Meadow is that it is digital. I find that I’m overwhelmed with papers and books and it’s difficult to sift through the vast amount of materials to find what to teach. This seems straight forward and environmentally friendly! (bonus!) I hope to give Oak Meadow a try next year to watch my children’s minds continue to grow!
My daughter is 6. I love Oak Meadow’s hands-on, nature-focussed aspects and know that my little girl would love her learning to be based on stories and the seasonal world around us. 🙂
My children are 7, 5, and 2. We love how Oak Meadow blends formal instruction into therapeutic lessons. It is a great balance of head, heart, and hands

Hello!! I have a 9 month old, 3.5 and 6.5. I would love to use Oak Meadow for my oldest.
I have twin 4 year olds that I’m planning on homeschooling for kindergarten next year. Oak Meadow appeals to me because it has a more laid back approach to early elementary education – more time for play and fun, which is exactly why I want to home school in the first place.
My kids are 3, 6, and 10. I think that Oak Meadow would be especially perfect for my 10 year old. We’ve struggled to find the right fit for her and I feel that Oak Meadow is exactly what she needs.
My word for this New Year is SIMPLE. That’s how I found this site, and actually it’s what turned me on to Oak Meadow. My 7 year old Olivia is a nature-lovin’, picture paintin’ free spirit, and the last thing I want to do is mold her to a curriculum. Oak Meadow seems like it would be a beautiful learning experience for her and allow her to be herself. I couldn’t want anything more than that!
My boys are aged 6 and 7. I have always loved the gentleness and organic feel to Oak Meadow. We are striving to live a Simple Life and I think this would fit perfectly.
The ages of my children are 4, 8 and 12. I love that the focus is education.
After reading the description, this seems like an awesome Curriculum perfectly suited to keep my high functioning gifted autistic 4 1/2 year old interested on a daily basis. Yay!
I have three girls, ages 6, almost 4, and 2. The nature aspect of this curriculum is very appealing to us. Our girls really crave and need time outdoors in nature. We also enjoy a relaxed pace that is child led. Would love a chance to try oak meadow. I’ve been considering it for the last couple of years but haven’t taken the plunge yet. Figured I would try this first – thanks for the chance!
I have 6 children, all of whom I have home schooled. My youngest two boys are still being home schooled while my elder 15 year old son is now at high school. I have perused dozens and dozens of curriculum over the years, (and bought several…plus many many books!) and experimented with many different learning styles. It can be a challenge to keep up with each developing child. But one enduring style has always been our love of the outdoors. Oak Meadow curriculum addresses the simplicity I love as well as the natural outdoorsy life, whilst learning in a fun and interesting way. It is good of you to make this very cool offer.

I love Oak Meadows “whole-child” approach and also integrating the environment and artistic expression into daily life and learning. I’m an American living in Australia and my kids are 5, 4 and 19 months – we are diving into ‘homeschool’ for the first time next week as the school runs from then until late November for us!
