I am interested in joining or forming a Charlotte Mason reading group for mom where we meet and read Mason's series and/or a home school co-op to help with some of riches of a CM education. If you're in the Ann Arbor area, please reach out!
We are a new group that meets monthly to study CM’s volumes. But we are open to growing where God would have us bloom whether through nature study hikes, recitation gatherings, and more. We welcome both new and seasoned mothers who long to create community in our area with both our children and ourselves.
Bi-weekly meeting primarily on Friday mornings which consists of meeting for nature walks. Open to families with similar aged children (Fall 2024 my oldest will be 6). If schedules allow, we can build in additional hikes and AO activities together.
I am a retired homeschool mom still involved in CM education, moderating AO FB and Forum, and a Fellow with the House of Humane Letters. I currently offer Literature (and Music) classes at my studio in Laurel, MT. Contact me for more information, or see my website kaypelham.com . I'm also happy to host and lead CM book discussions. I've been a part of the CM world since 2005.
The Children's Gathering is our Short Morning of Lessons for Charlotte Mason Families.
We gather together every Friday morning for Hymn Singing, Old and New Testament Bible Recitations, a Psalm Recitation, and a Poetry Recitation. We also have a lesson in Physical Geography using Charlotte Mason's "Elementary Geography" along with Geography Walks. We are learning and practicing Swedish Drill together each week too.
We are reading and listening to Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing" and "As You Like It". We are also studying Church History using "Trial and Triumph" by Richard Hannula. We end our morning of lessons together with a Folk Song.
If you are looking for other Charlotte Mason Families to learn and grow with, please let us know. We would love to have you join us! ❤️
“One more thing is of vital importance; children must have books, living books; the best are not too good for them; anything less than the best is not good enough....”
"Give children a wide range of subjects, with the end in view of establishing in each case some one or more of the relations I have indicated. Let them learn from first-hand sources of information--really good books, the best going, on the subject they are engaged upon. Let them get at the books themselves...books teeming with ideas fresh from the minds of thinkers upon every subject to which we can wish to introduce children. ”
We are a small, CM-inspired co-op that meets one morning a week during the school year. Classes include handicrafts, nature study, and art instruction. We also have a time for recitations, folksongs, and folk dancing. There is a preK class for younger siblings.
We would love to welcome some new families to our group in the fall of 2024!
“Fieldwork” is essentially nature study. We get out in nature and explore it together! Fieldwork Fridays are a great place to connect with other homeschool families and learn about the Charlotte Mason approach to nature study. This is a relaxed group that welcomes homeschoolers that use any methodology in the home. Charlotte Mason experience and/or application is not needed to enjoy our group, it simply acts as a framework to aid in planning our outings and group activities!
We will meet in the Murray (Calloway County, KY) and/or Paris (Henry County, TN) areas. Please reach out with any questions and if you’d like to help get this group going strong!
We started as a nature group and have grown into much more! The Lord has blessed us by bringing together many like-minded moms and children to explore and learn together each week. We meet each Thursday at 12:30. (Time subject to change in the summer season). We have nature study, field trips and a recitation group. The recitation group is reserved for those families who are following the Ambelside Online Riches such as the artist study, composer study, folk song, hymns and the Shakespeare rotations.

We are a homeschool co-op that meets on Wednesdays for 24 weeks from September to May. We aim to educate the whole child with good habits, great books, and guided discovery. Good habits lead to good character, great books foster a love of learning and guided discovery makes learning stick. Visit our website for more information and to enroll.
Looking for friends in the Georgetown Texas area! My kids are 7 (boy)
5 (girl) and 1 (girl)! As of writing this in January 2024!
We dropped out of our hybrid school. We have a lot of friends there, but if you don’t go there, you don’t have any time to connect with friends outside of the school because the workload is so large. So we will be fully homeschooling next year but I want my kids to grow and have relationships with other children as they get older! It makes me really sad how hard it is to have solid relationships these days that actually last. Really wanting to find likeminded Bible believing Christians focused on raising their kids with truth, goodness, and beauty to sign kids up with friends to do sports together, open gyms, play and fun! And maybe if we’re studying the same time periods we could also work on school together!
At Live Oak Living Academy, we focus on training children how to learn rather than telling them what they should know. Who are we to say that we know everything? Our children were born in God's image just as we were and have the same ability to make connections between subjects. If we do not teach them how to strengthen this ability and learn for themselves, what is to prevent them from believing whatever they are told?
Here, at LOLA, we make it our mission to assist our parents in teaching their children right from wrong, training them to become habitual stewards of good self-discipline, and providing them with ideas in all fields of knowledge.
We seek to develop spiritual, social and academic maturity in young men and women as they move on to whichever path God may lay before them.

Holly Springs, NC
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!
