Bringing effortless joy and educational excellence to your homeschool.
Coming This Summer!
Uncomplicated and Effortless
Living Streams, authored by Ann Troast and supplemented by Jeannie Fulbright, is an uncomplicated, effortless Charlotte Mason curriculum that brings joy and freedom to homeschool families.
Homeschool Family Tested
Ann wrote this curriculum to bless the families in her co-op with a simplified approach to implementing the Charlotte Mason model. Her weekly schedules brought easy joy and grew in popularity. Because of growing interest, she began offering her curriculum to families outside the co-op.
And now I am thrilled to be the publisher of this breath of fresh air in the homeschool curriculum market. We know it will bring light, freedom, confidence, and joy to your homeschool.
It is designed to simplify the homeschool experience by coordinating all ages around quality living books for family-style learning.
Generous Feast of Learning
Each Stream includes Bible, history, geography, science, language arts, nature study, music, handicrafts, and art. Add math for a complete curriculum.
“This curriculum gives a sweet framework
for a Charlotte Mason education and has brought
more peace and joy to our homeschool.”
Organized for an Easy Week of Learning
A beautiful, simplified weekly schedule to keep in your morning basket. You decide which days to teach each topic according to your family’s unique needs and schedule.
Read selected verses in the Old Testament and New Testament. Oral narration is enough to implant the word of God in your children’s heart. Memorize important Scriptures. Transcribe favorite verses in your Book of Common Place. Scripture is also used in several copy work and dictation exercises.
Our living history spine will delight and engage children of all ages as they traverse through history.

In our first stream, Early American History, families will learn the geography of the thirteen colonies and the Oregon trail. They’ll engage in cartography, creating maps of different states as they learn. They’ll begin with a basic outline, Each week, more features such as rivers and mountains, and key features of each state. On the fourth week, your child will watercolor their map, creating a beautiful work of art.
Students in Forms I, II, II will encounter science as Charlotte Mason intended with the whole book approach using Apologia’s Young Explorer series, the #1 best-selling, award-winning science curriculum on the market.
A gentle approach to learning, our nature lore suggestions delight readers will surreptiously grounding students in scientific knowledge.
Out-of-door nature walks and nature journaling prompts will ease the beginning nature students into the art of nature study, while those with more experience will enjoy the excursions and add to their nature journal from their own observations.
Each week, the students are given an opportunity to enrich their learning by studying:

“Having nature journal prompts laid out for me
helps our family to be consistent with nature study.”

Living Streams Bring Joy
Homeschooling was never meant to be stressful or a burden. Home education is the way God designed our children to learn, by the parents He chose, in the home He handpicked.
Charlotte Mason never meant for her educational model to be a burden to parents, but a joy. She meant for mother to experience freedom and peace while educating her children.
That is what we hope for you when you use the Living Streams Charlotte Mason Curriculum.
