The Moonlit Grove was born of a strong desire to homeschool my children coupled with my determination to teach them true Pagan ways. Being that very few resources exist in the realm of Pagan Homeschooling, I chose to use my writing talents to create my own lessons. I’m offering them here to assist others in integrating their Pagan leanings with basic home school curriculum catering to various grade levels.
The focus of my curriculum is to explore “why” and “how” things work the way they do in the magical and mysterious realms, and to help bridge the connections with facts relating to science and nature. It is for the benefit (hopefully) of society, our planet, and our future through the education of our children. As a whole, we have become ignorant of, and indifferent to the most basic and vital knowledge for continued survival. Not only is it disheartening to witness young adults unable to read the time on a clock that isn’t “digital”, and unable to “count change” back without a machine instructing how much to give, but even fulfilling the most basic needs (food, shelter, clothing, medicine) has been all but forgotten. I fear that many of us would quickly perish if modern conveniences were taken away and simply “didn’t exist” anymore. It is my goal to positively touch the lives of future generations so they will be able to hold onto the “magic” of childhood yet still thrive in harmony with nature.
My lessons are modeled with my own children and grand-children in mind, but they are also entirely relevant for any parent or step-parent (regardless of religion or faith) when introducing their child or step-child to respectable, responsible, wise, and productive adult living. I do not intend to divide up units of study by “grade level” or “age group” since children are all at varying levels of development, independent of age. I will, however, try to include something within each lesson to benefit several varying levels of comprehension. As always, comments, questions and suggestions are encouraged.
