Welcome back to the Practical Ideas for Homeschooling Moms Blog Hop!
Thank you for visiting our blog hop again today! We are in our 11th week of the Blog Hop, and I absolutely love it. It has been so refreshing to read new-to-me ideas and enjoy homemaking and homeschooling tips.
In an online sea of overwhelming information, the Practical Ideas for Homeschooling Moms Blog Hop provides nuggets of ideas, resources, and helps for the homeschool mom.
Each week, the Blog Hop hosts blog posts that are written by other wives and mothers who have wisdom and experience to share. Find help with choosing curriculum, setting up and maintaining schedules, homeschooling in times of crisis, wisdom from years and years of experience, and more.
Read about various homeschool helps, but also ideas and resources for managing our homes more efficiently.
I can’t wait to personally read every single one of those!
If you’re a blogger, please add your best ideas, resources, and tips for homeschool moms to the link up. We would love to have you!
This link up runs Tuesday morning through Thursday night at 11:59 pm Eastern.
If you’re not familiar with a blog hop, the concept is simple: Bloggers host a link up each week focusing on a particular topic. Readers find new posts and sites to read, and bloggers share their best links.
It’s a marvelous way to find new sites and bloggers that share the topics you’re interested in!
Practical Tip from Mama’s this Week
Today, I’m sharing my set of Summer Pattern Block Mats.
Pattern blocks have always been a favorite of my children. My oldest (15) will still sit with my 3 year old and show him neat patterns or interesting pictures (fish! a birthday cake! a house with a chimney!).
That type of play is so important to young minds. I’m glad my oldest will take the time to sit with my youngest and show him fun things. ❤ My two boy bookends!
Grab your set of pattern blocks and these summer pattern block mats and enjoy!

Meet Our Blog Hop Hostesses!
I’m so excited to be on this Blog Hop journey with this set of wise, experienced homeschool moms. Collectively, we have 40+years of homeschooling under our belts and we can’t wait to share all of that you.
We are also excited to learn from the posts that other bloggers will share.
Oh it’s going to be fun!
Weekly Featured Posts
My favorite practical post from last week’s hop:
Amy from Humility and Doxology has a massive post on homeschooling American Government and Economics with your high schooler. WOW. I would certainly say it’s a comprehensive post of resources, questions to ponder, primary documents, and course of study.
We are choosing to use a textbook for American Government for my 10th grader because I don’t have the bandwidth to put together a DIY curriculum. However, if I was in a freer season of life, Amy’s post would be my guide in thinking through the choices.
The biggest gem in Amy’s post is taking a peek at how to plan a high school level class. There’s a lot of wisdom there!
