Oak Meadow Give-Away :: $100 Gift Card

Comments are now closed and a winner has been choosen. Congratulations Reverie! You have three days to contact me to claim your prize.

I love Oak Meadow!

I love the beauty of Oak Meadow’s curriculum- lots of nature, storytelling, and crafts, which is so refreshing in contrast to the worksheet-and-throw-away-crafts approach I see a lot of in homeschool curricula. I love the idea of main lesson books, and creating meaningful projects that last. I feel that OM honors the child’s time and efforts.

I’d use the gift towards completing my daughter’s K curriculum for next fall.

Thank you for the chance to win! πŸ™‚

  1. I know the Oak Meadow staff through several avenues (I live in Brattleboro), and would love to shop their bookstore. They are imaginative, creative people, and while I don’t homeschool, I do like to support my children’s work at school. 

  2. I did not know about OM before this! I have a highly gifted daughter, and spend much of my time supplementing, and finding supplements for her to use at home. This would be fantastic!

  4. This would be so dreamy for our three HS boys.

  5. Liked on Fb. thanks so much.

  6. Have been an Oak Meadow fan for a few years now but haven’t been able to afford their curriculum to date. Love the natural, rhythmic focus and Waldorf influence.

  7. I have wanted to get Oak Meadow materials for years, but I have been given so many things I couldn’t justify the cost. I would love for my son to have one of their craft kits.

  8. Their ideas are so creative!

  9. Commented and liked…Oh the things we could do with this gift!  πŸ™‚

  10. This is our first year homeschooling and we love Oak Meadow’s 1st Grade curriculum.  I love the gentle pace, and my son loves the artistic angle.

  11. My children would thrive with an oak meadow curriculum. I love that it’s nature based, contains fairy tales, and the literary portion is gentle and artistic. I have a 4yr old and a 2 year old and we are homeschooling kindergarten next year (preschool this year, but we just do lots of free play and outdoor exploration).  I would love to be an Oak Meadow owner and use it as our guide next year!

  33. I have been using Oak Meadow with my daughter for 1st and 2nd grade.  I love their gentle yet thorough approach. My daughter does well with all of the hands on activities and jumped for joy when I told her we would be using Oak Meadow for “school” this year. 

  34. Thanks for the information.  I hadn’t heard of OM.  Looking forward to learning mire about it.

  35. We love Oak Meadow and like them on FB as well. 

  36. I have never heard of this home school program but I would be very interested to give it a try.  It appears more hands on than many curriculums I have used and seen.  My son is a do-er.  It might work best for him.

  37. I “like” Oak Meadow on FB.  πŸ™‚

  40. I have just started looking at Oak Meadow and am impressed!!  Yay!

  50. Have liked their Facebook page! πŸ™‚

  51. Two of my favorite resources – Oak Meadow and Wee Folk Art – in one blog post! I love it. I’m using OM with my preschooler, so very much just starting out. I love that its gentle and supports both a love of nature and the arts *and* the child’s natural development. 

  52. Well, I’m wondering why I haven’t heard of your program before.  I didn’t homeschool but my boys went to an independent study high school and I’m thinking your program would have been so perfect for them, especially my younger son.  Unfortunately he’s finishing up his last classes for graduation so it wouldn’t be wise to switch.  I am a preschool teacher and I’m going to be looking into your pre-k and k programs.  I love your philosophy and approach.  I completely agree with your thinking on how a child’s day should be structured.  

  53. Very interesting information!

  54. We havw been thinking about using Oak Meadow as our curriculum for schooling next year. I love the focus on nature and whole body, not just academics. Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  90. We love Oak Meadow. The flexibility. And fun ways to learn. Our oldest has ADHD and sensory issues that would make it difficult for her in other schools. But at home with her bother and sister she is thriving. She has learned so much since she started. Our 2 and 3 year old can’t wait to start after seeing all of the fun their big sister has been haveing. Learning her alphabet, numbers, arts and crafts, science, health and their love for reading is awesome. We love Oak Meadow. And I have come to the conclusion, if your not having fun, your not doing it right.

  91. I have a friend who used Oak Meadow with her children and I have been wondering if it would work for my very tactile 9th grader.  I am interested in the Biology and the Literature.

  107. I’ve liked the Facebook page πŸ™‚

  108. I have always wanted to try this but I never could find anyone who actually was using it and I have purchased curriculum before just to find out it doesn’t work or fit. Very frustrating when you can’t recoup money spent.This would be a great way of trying it out.

  127. We have used Oak Meadow before, and found it to be a wonderful bridge between some of the beautiful aspects of a Waldorf/Steiner inspired education, and the necessary requirements for children schooling within the common core umbrella. For those homeschooling with a charter school and searching for a well put together, art and nature-inspired curriculum you may find that Oak Meadow is perfectly perfect for you and your wee folk. ;o)

  134. Our lil lady is 5yo and we’re in the kindergarten stage with her. In the future, Oak Meadow certainly has the possibility of something we turn to, for extra help.

  147. I have a 2.5 year old and a new baby and have been increasingly interested in homeschooling both kids depending on where we are in life when it comes time to talk school (so far, I am home with them full-time). My daughter is very creative and loves learning through play and just general free time and I can’t imagine her doing well sitting in a classroom for 8 hours a day with 20 other kids. Even if we decided to go the public school route, I would still love having some learning tools at home to bring learning into our home.

  148. I like that Oak Meadow meets children where they are emotionally and developmentally, it’s a slow build up and not a rush.

  149. I am a fan of Oak Meadow.

  150. Howdy! 

    I love the “childhood allowed” way that the curricula is set up. If I were to win the giveaway, I would definitely get the first grade literature package for my kiddos. πŸ™‚

  151. I liked Oak Meadow on FB.  Thanks so much for sharing information about them.  I think I’ve heard about them before but if I did I didn’t locate their website. Their program looks so good!  I’m going to be getting some of their things to help me with my class that I teach!  So exciteD!                          

  152. I like the holistic approach that Oak Meadow use to educate and nourish the child

  153. I love the beauty of Oak Meadow’s curriculum- lots of nature, storytelling, and crafts, which is so refreshing in contrast to the worksheet-and-throw-away-crafts approach I see a lot of in homeschool curricula. I love the idea of main lesson books, and creating meaningful projects that last. I feel that OM honors the child’s time and efforts.

    I’d use the gift towards completing my daughter’s K curriculum for next fall.

    Thank you for the chance to win! πŸ™‚

  154. I already like Oak Meadow on Facebook (and Pinterest). Thank you for the chance to win!

  166. I “liked” Oak Meadow on Facebook, so fingers crossed for another entry.  PS, also offered by OM and worth mentioning is their great Main Lesson Books!  The awesome, thick paper is divided by thin sheets, thus your little one’s drawings have a barrier between them so those lovely beeswax crayon drawings don’t bleed onto one another.  Genius!  

  167. I have been homeschooling my daughter for 7 years and have also been homeschooling my 2 nieces the last 2 years, and I have always wanted to try Oak Meadow’s curriculum!! It sounds exactly like the way I would like to learn and so I would love to try teaching my little flock with their products. Thank you for a chance!!
