We are a group of CM families with middle schoolers, that gather to learn about and enjoy God through the riches he has created. This group is meant for middle school students (grades 5-8) wanting to actively engage in the feast and build community with peers. Mothers are actively involved during the group time. Subjects covered include; scripture, poetry, Shakespeare, drawing, Folk songs, and nature walks.
We are a small group of dedicated families with kids in preschool through 7th grade (all are welcome though!) meeting on the South Shore to learn and celebrate life together. Our days can include singing, Shakespeare, geography, composer study, handicrafts, Plutarch, or nature study, depending on the desires and skill sets of our families. We would love to hear from you!
The Truth, Beauty, Goodness Community (TBG) is our long-standing (over 14 years!), beauty-filled offering of a homeschool community built on one particular philosophy of education – that of Charlotte Mason. At different times, we have had all ages in our co-op, only elementary age students, and only high school students. We love to share and encourage others who wish to start learning cooperatives where many hands (teachers) make light work and allow moms to implement the fullness of a Charlotte Mason education.
Visit our webpage for more information and resources that we love to share! Presently, we have a Form 3-6 group (TBG Teens) and a Forms 1-3 group (Spreading the Feast).
“We spread an abundant and delicate feast in the programmes and each small guest assimilates what he can” (Charlotte Mason, Vol. 6, p. 183).
Spread the Feast Community is a community for home educators and families in Shelby County and the surrounding areas interested in learning about the Charlotte Mason method and philosophy of education. Our primary goal is to be a place of encouragement for parents on their homeschooling journey, and to grow in community with one another.
We also provide learning opportunities for the children so they too can grow in community and friendship with one another. Spread the Feast is open to all that are interested in learning more about the Charlotte Mason method and philosophy of education. We welcome CM veterans, those transitioning to CM, those that are just beginning to learn about CM, those that are simply curious about CM, and everyone in between.
We host 2 book discussions a month- a daytime one for adults and kids of all ages and an evening one for parents and "babes in arms." We also have mother culture and family events, clubs (scouting, nature), nature outings, "early years" meet-ups, and more!
This year we are reading In Vital Harmony by Karen Glass.
