Homeschool Meme, thanks Tracey

I have been tagged for a homeschooling meme by a friend, Tracey over at Little Men in My Library.  She has a great blog, always good reviews on books.  I envy her built in bookcases and their contents.  Oh to have my own personal library!!

1. One homeschooling book you have enjoyed

I haven’t really read very many homeschooling books although I guess the one that had the most impact on me was Educating Childrenat Home by Alan Thomas.

2. One resource you wouldn’t be without

Can I say two?  My printer and my laminator.  I love making up resources for the littles to use.

3. One resource you wish you had never bought

I haven’t had many regrets with my homeschool resources as I have usually had to be very careful of my spending so consider them long and well first.  I do regret buying some books by Gerber, only because at the time they were far too advanced for my children and I could have used those funds elsewhere.  They have sat on my shelves for over 5 years waiting to be used.

4. One resource you enjoyed last year

Homeschool Tracker Plus software, it has saved my brain a whole lot of figuring and scheduling.  And for my eldest - Sequential Spelling.  He is not a phonics type learner and the patterns in SS really work for him.

5. One resource you will be using next year

God’s Design for Life series.  I know this science program is very light on but as a family that has had a baby or toddler in it for quite some time and will still for another year the short lessons suit me perfectly.  I do condense some lessons together if the topic suits but otherwise it is quick to use.

6. One resource you would like to buy

I would love to get a Latin program of some sort but haven’t picked one yet.  I am waiting on my younger reader to become a little more fluent and then I can combine 3 for Latin classes, always a good option here.

7. One resource you wish existed

Two whole me’s - one to bake, clean and keep house, the other to focus on teaching my boys.

8. One homeschool catalogue you enjoy reading

I have always loved the Sonlight catalogue even though it didn’t suit our family for many years.

9. One homeschooling website you use regularly

The Rockpool is my first choice whenever I need a lift.  Lovely bunch of gals who are very accepting of the many different options out there in homeschooling and lifestyle.  And Australian, although you may find a good proportion of NZers there too.

10. Tag other homeschoolers

Ruby at Mumma's Place.

Best wishes

  1. Hey Jen,
    Thanks for changing the settings for us. What the problem is with blogger I don't know but this name/ url setting is fine for commenting. I remember when I started blogging having a lot of limitations on viewing, settings and comments. The reality for me is that I just haven't had any stalkers or nasty commenters so I hope the same goes for you and allowing anonymous comments won't be any problem.
    I have liked some of your above posts and love that your home and work areas look so normal!
    Thanks again for tagging me on this meme.


Thank you for visiting. I would love to hear from you and tend to reply in the comments. It is nice to just have a chat some times.
