The Best of 2014: Homeschool Inspiration & Ideas


Best of 2014 Homeschooling Inspiration Over 30 Resources!

2014 was our first official homeschool year. It was pre-prek for us. Some fun crafts, lots of books and nature walks and even at try with a great local co-op. The co-op was more for me to network with other homeschooling moms and it was a fantastic experience. I’ve written a few posts this year about homeschooling.

My top  posts are:

#1 – Homeschooling Moms: Playing School or Teaching?

#2 – The Dangerous Risk of Talking to Your Children About Sex

#3 – 9 Secret PreK Homeschool Resources

#4 – Turning the Ordinary Into Teachable Moments
