We meet up to do folk songs, recitations, folk dancing, physical geography, scouting and Handicrafts.
We also are starting a group for middle school and up to read through Shakespeare together and some other subjects. I am open to younger children meeting at the same time if someone else wants to help lead that.
“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.
St Johnsbury, VT
A small Charlotte Mason community, modeled after the True, Good, and Beautiful model that Nancy Kelly describes on Sage Parnassus. The children that attend this group are in Forms 1 through Form 3. Moms are required to be involved and guide discussions and explorations. Shakespeare, Plutarch, scouting and music are the subjects included so far, with hopes to build into more.
