Top Ten Favorite Homeschool Blogs

lfrjg

As promised, today I’m going to tell you about my top 10 favorite homeschool blogs.  Once more, these aren’t the only blogs I follow and they are in no particular order.  This is just a list of the ones I use most frequently.

1. A Homeschool Mom Cristina’s blog is full of encouragement and ideas for homeschooling mamas.  It is well-written and -organized.  There is a great series on the blog called ‘Homeschooling 101’ that offers great advice to new homeschool parents.

2. Stories of Our Boys April’s blog is amusing and upbeat, even when she is writing about issues that aren’t so happy.  She offers info on homeschooling, childhood epilepsy, photography, recipes…. Just check it out; you’ll love her sunshine-y approach to life.

confession3. Confessions of a Homeschooler Erica is the author of a book called Homeschooling 101.  She does us other mamas the favor of blogging about her curricula every year along with her schedule so we can get ideas from this homeschooling genius. Other points of interest include crafts and free printables.  Eric also has a store from which she sells science, geography, literature and other unit studies.

4. Bloke School  I just found this one recently, and I’m already hooked.  David gives us mamas a fresh look at homeschooling–from Dad’s point of view.  He’s based in Australia, so some of the laws and financial stuff doesn’t apply here in America, but the site is super well-written and full of posts that really make me think, as a teacher, about how I can make the lessons deeper for my Littles.  And since I only have boys, advice from a man is invaluable.

Penelope Trunk5. Penelope Trunk Penelope’s blog about homeschooling always makes me think.  She posts about things like how to make sure your unschooled child is really learning, how video games can be beneficial, continuing to homeschool if you go back to work… Lots of encouragement and sound advice.  My favorite quote: “I homeschool because it seemed to me that it was like breastfeeding: Of course it’s the best thing to do for the kids, it’s just difficult.”   She also offers curriculum advice.

YRHHeader6. Year Round Homeschooling  This is a place where many homeschool moms blog about a variety of homeschool subjects.  I spend a lot of time on this blog, because I can anything from encouragement to unit studies to freebies and there is such a variety of authors that I never get bored.  They also provide a daily list of free ebooks.

        I’m still working through your list! Just stumbled on Montessori…did you try some Montessori with your littles when they were younger? I don’t know much about Montessori, but it seems like just including kiddos in life (cooking, gardening, cleaning, building, etc.).

        Montessori is very hands-on, it’s true. We’re very eclectic here, so we use just about every school of thought out there, and Montessori has definitely been part of our curricula. What I love about Montessori is the lack of worksheets and tests involved. I think it’s so funny how in our society we tend to think kids aren’t learning if they aren’t taking tests about the subjects. Did we test them when they learning to talk? Or walk? Montessori would be an awesome addition to your homeschool. I know a lot of mamas who use it exclusively.

        I agree: worksheets and tests cannot always demonstrate knowledge. And some kids really rely on their kinesthetic skills. I want to incorporate more hands on, so I’ll definitely look more into Montessori. Thanks!
