At BLOOM the study of math is rooted in wonder. Students are invited to delve deeply into the beauty of math and to undertake mathematical study as an act of worship in which they can behold the order and awesomeness of the cosmos and catch a glimpse into the mind and wisdom of God.
The Bluebonnet Live Online & Onsite Math (BLOOM) program offers a rigorous, college-preparatory math trajectory for 1st-grade math through Calculus. BLOOM classes meet or exceed national standards and prepare students for standardized tests, college, and beyond.
BLOOM is an off-shoot of Bluebonnet Home Scholars Collaborative (BHSC), a 501(c)(3) non-profit ministry offering homeschool classes with a difference. BHSC is a Group Class Community that exists to enrich the lives of Christian homeschool families in the joint pursuit of wonder, knowledge, and love.
I'd like to gauge interest for a 10th grade group who use the Alveary curriculum. The class would be weekly, during which 10th Grade Alveary Students discuss several different school subjects that were studied that previous week. Each week would feature different subjects in the curriculum, with the goal of covering each subject at least twice. Students would eventually be in charge of leading the discussions on their assigned week.
Will you have a 10th grader that would benefit from this type of class? I'd like to see if there's enough interest to have 10th grade only, but if there is not enough, I may open it up to include 9th or 11th graders and only cover those subjects that are shared among the combined grades.
Please respond with ideas and/or interest.
Charlotte's Web Co-op provides a safe learning environment for children in grades 4th and up to learn and share ideas with others with teachers who have a passion for their subject area. Following Mason’s philosophy of learning, lectures are not present here but serve as a guide to help facilitate the class in the children’s pursuit of knowledge. Knowing that many do not have the opportunity to meet locally we hope to bridge the gap. We also desire to share the load with moms who are feeling overloaded in having to provide the full feast Mason describes. We want to partner with you and help provide a well-rounded education for your children.
The Charlotte Mason Institute hosts several different online study groups each semester (seasons run from January-June and July-December) for community, growth, and encouragement. Groups typically meet once a month via zoom for an hour and a half, and extra articles and resources and a forum to chat with others in the group are provided with registration.
You are warmly invited to participate in my offering, Living Education Lessons, a group mentoring experience. This little community is something unique for women who wish to homeschool using the Charlotte Mason method and live a full life. I believe these things can go hand-in-hand, but sometimes we need thoughtful and unhurried guidance from someone who has gone before – a mentor. I will share about my decades of experience from homeschooling with Charlotte Mason methods, creating an atmosphere of beauty and respect in my home, and nurturing relationships with God, my family, and friends. As a small community, each Season you will find kindred spirits to encourage you, walk beside you, and help keep you moving forward. Hundreds of women over the past few years have participated in these living classes.
This book club will work on a rotation through books on the Charlotte Mason method, some published and sold by Simply Charlotte Mason, and others published by other sources. We will focus on one book at a time to help us learn deeply from the wisdom of the author and each other. Our current book study is:
School Education by Charlotte Mason (Volume 3 of the Original Home Schooling Series)
In Vital Harmony by Karen Glass
Start Date: 2023
"Education is an atmosphere, a discipline, a life." ~ Charlotte Mason
With acknowledgment of this, Life-giving Motherhood was born: a worldwide, online community of sisters in Christ, growing in the philosophy and method of Charlotte Mason in our homes and local churches. Each month is packed with live workshops, habit-formation challenges, mother culture, and a book club reading Miss Mason's volumes.
"We are a community of Gospel-reliant moms, intent on being disciples and disciplers of Christ, who have united to answer the call of raising up the next generation in accordance with God's Word, by cultivating the spiritual disciplines lived out by Christ, and by replacing unproductive habits with life-giving, productivity-boosting habits, which enable us to hone our ability to be watchful, praying gatekeepers of our homes, and ultimately, hear our King say when He returns, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
