Welcome fellow CM home educators! We are a group dedicated to cultivating the atmosphere, discipline, and life conducive to a classical Charlotte Mason education in our homes. We will meet once per month in the Southwest Raleigh (Holly Springs, Apex, Cary, Fuquay-Varina, and surrounding) area to discuss a book related to forging ahead with this lifestyle. We plan to read all of Charlotte Mason's volumes, as well as works by other authors, such as Karen Glass, Laurie Bestvater, Cindy Rollins, and Karen Andreola. It is our goal to provide a place of fellowship, comfort, and camaraderie for our fellow homeschooling moms. Pull up a chair, and let's get reading!
My family has recently moved to Charleston, WV and as far as I can tell there are no CM groups nearby, so I would like to start one!
I envision this group beginning with a fortnightly (every other week) nature study/walk for our children to delight in the wonder of creation and enjoy one another’s company. I would also like to offer a monthly meet up for mums to read and discuss Charlotte’s volumes or other related content. I would be happy to discuss expanding from that starting point!
If you are interested, please sing out!
Our group begins reading through one of Mason’s volumes each summer. Parents and children meet at my home in Greenville Texas, bi-weekly. Children play outdoors while parents (and babies) stay inside to discuss the chapters.
During the school year, we transition to a parents-only monthly meeting, in the evenings, to finish the volume.
Readings are split up and assigned at the beginning of the summer. Feel free to jump in any time.
Fall 2023 - We are starting a weekly nature co-op for homeschooling families - whether you use Charlotte Mason inspired books/curriculum in your home, or not! We will be meeting weekly through the school year for an explorative nature walk and free play, and ALSO meeting monthly for a book club and discussion group (book club is for parents but children are welcome to attend!).
All ages are welcome here! Our weekly meetings will be loosely structured with optional nature journaling and more involved wilderness activities/skills for older children. We will be primarily meeting at my family's campground (just outside of Morton), and once a month we will have an off-site field trip to various outdoor locations. Our current meeting time is Friday mornings from 9am-12pm, but we are flexible and open to other suggestions! If you would like to join and can commit to coming weekly please let us know if there is a better time for you.
The club is held monthly, in my home, and children are welcome to join. We meet the second Monday of every month at 4pm for discussion and potluck - please bring a dish/snack to share :)
