Back to Homeschool Annual Blog Hop - 2017

It’s hard to believe the Summer Holidays are coming to an end and it’s time to get back to homeschooling and plan the year ahead.  The Homeschool Review Crew is working behind the scenes and putting together some fabulous blog posts to support and encourage you for the year ahead.  Starting on Monday we will be hosting the annual Back to School Blog Hop.

Each day we will be addressing a different topic

  • Curriculum (Physical and Digital options for your family, what we will use, extra resources, manipulatives)
  • School Supplies (Best products for the job, Must have stationary, I can’t homeschool without … )
  • Planning / Record Keeping (lesson planning, daily schedules, Record Keeping, Routines, planning to use my space creatively,)
  • Outside the Home (co-ops, support groups, part-time school, apprenticeships, training, fitting in the extras)
  • Dear Homeschool Mom … (A letter of encouragement for the year ahead)

Here are a few of the Crew who will be participating next week*
