Welcome back to the Practical Ideas for Homeschooling Moms Blog Hop!
Thank you for visiting our blog hop again today!
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
In the early elementary years, I try to focus on biographies of Famous Americans for our American History studies. Reading biographies are a gentle way to learn about time periods and traditions.
If our first president is on your reading list for the coming year, take a look at some of our favorite books about George Washington for Kindergarten to 4th Grade.
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 posts from last week’s hop:
As I’ve come to learn in the past few years, my mindset can make or break something – homeschooling, homemaking, a vacation trip, making dinner – anything I participate in. I actually have a post written on this topic and will publish soon.
Amy from Humility and Doxology shares a fascinating podcast with Mystie Winckler on this very topic of mindset. While I haven’t listened to the podcast (I’m just not a podcast person in this stage of my life), I’ve read the post notes. Make sure you stop by and listen (or read!) if you need a bit of encouragement with changing your mindset about homemaking.
We are a family of readers, and I adopted the idea of living books very early in our homeschool life without realizing it was a thing. I was thrilled to read through this post of Dianna’s from The Kennedy Adventures and her family using a study from Beautiful Feet.
This particular study focuses on the Medieval period using lovely living books to make history come alive. If you’re researching curriculum for the coming year, take a peek and see if this would be a good fit for your family.
