This is a Charlotte Mason support group for Home Educating Hoosiers! The goal is to have a community that collectively works towards sharing all the local resources Indiana has to offer relevant to the CM way of homeschooling, such as:
🌿 Nature Studies
🌿 Educational Events, Outings, & Field Trips
🌿 CM-Inspired Gatherings
🌿 Homeschool Conferences
🌿 Literature-based Learning Opportunities
🌿 Mother Culture
🌿 Book Clubs
🌿 Book Sales or Swaps
We ask members to join us in earnestly seeking to learn and pursue CM's educational model and foster this community. Miss Mason has offered us such a sacred way of learning, and as parents we're gifted the opportunity to help each other retain this way of living. Some ways we expect members to do so include:
🌿 Contribute by sharing resources such as those mentioned above
🌿 Actively pursue and learn the CM methods
🌿 Strive to build real, in-person relationships with other local families
🌿 Offer encouragement and support as needed
These are the components that make a location-based Facebook group worthwhile! This a volunteer run group. We are all home educators–be gracious to the collective when life allows by volunteering your time and efforts to the group. If you would like to organize an outing, you are welcome to do so long as it is in the spirit of Miss Mason's teachings.
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.
