Welcome to the premier post of the Practical Ideas for Homeschooling Moms Blog Hop!
I am so thrilled you are here for the first post of this all new Blog Hop!
In an online sea of overwhelming information, the Practical Ideas for Homeschooling Moms Blog Hop will provide nuggets of ideas, resources, and helps for the homeschool mom.
Each week, the Blog Hop will host blog posts that are written by other wives and mothers who have wisdom and experience to share. You will find help with choosing curriculum, setting up and maintaining schedules, homeschooling in times of crisis, wisdom from years and years of experience, and more.
Not only will you find 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
Several years ago, I decided to give grades to my children. If you have younger children, you’re probably thinking, “Why in the world would you do that?”
Yes, I understand completely. I didn’t realize that my older children would need and even desire grades in the upper elementary and especially the middle school years.
Giving my children grades has definitely changed the dynamics of our homeschool a bit, which has been interesting to watch.
Find out why I started giving my children grades, how I record them, the easy program I use for middle school and high school grading, and more.
