Today is a special edition of Time Out Tuesdays; it's a homeschool edition. I thought it'd be neat to share some homeschooling websites and resources that I've found lately in my quest of reevaluating our schooling/curriculum. So, take a few minutes, and enjoy browsing through the sites. You never know what you might find.:) Oh, and don't forget to link up your giveaways at the bottom.
Baby Steps is a new blog I've found; she has posts on nature study, preschool, and other things related to homeschooling.
If you're unsure what books to get for your child to read, and especially if you take a classical approach to homeschooling, you might really enjoy the 1000 Good Books List. I plan on using this myself; what a wonderful resource!
If you do nature study with your children, the Handbook of Nature Study can be used along with Barb's blog, the Handbook of Nature Study. She has a series of outdoor challenges that go along with the book. They might give you ideas and inspiration for your own nature study. She also has an art blog called Harmony Art Mom.
Need some free worksheets?
Oh my gosh, I am loving this resource from Kiddie Records Weekly....oh the memories it brings. You can download tons and tons of kiddie records from back in the day, and your kids can listen to them. From Tom and Jerry to Tarzan....it's so cool!
Homeschool Radio Shows has a free newsletter, and you can download certain radio shows to listen to....right now, I see they have Laura Ingalls Wilder's book The Long Winter up. Enjoy!:)
You can listen to other free audiobooks on LibriVox and The Baldwin Online Children's Literature Project. My Audio School is another great audio site.
If you're trying to teach your child to read, Starfall might be of great help to you.
HomeschoolHelper seems to have a vast supply of printables.
Donna Young is a wonderful place to find not only homeschool printables, but calendars, project ideas, etc. I use resources from this site quite often.
Proverbs 22:6 Academy is a new blog I've found, and she has tons of homeschool and home manager printables that are simply wonderful. You can browse through her categories on her sidebar.
The Homeschool Freebie of the Day is another great resource for all homeschoolers.
If you go to the The Old Schoolhouse Store, you can sign up for their various newsletters, which quite a bit of the time offer freebies and wonderful homeschooling advice and encouragement.
Other great blogs and sites, especially for toddler and preschool ideas include Confessions of a Homeschooler, Totally Tots, Homeschool Creations, Tot School, and Preschool Corner.
The Crafty Crow is a great resource for crafts and art projects.
Wow, there are so many more I could share, but because of time, I have to leave off for today; I am thinking I will do a homeschooling edition of Time Out Tuesdays on alternating weeks, so every other week, you can expect new resources and ideas for homeschooling. There is just an immeasurable supply of wonderful blogs and websites out there. (Hint: I go to fellow homeschooling blogs, and I not only read their blogs, but I search their sidebars for resources they love. You can find amazing things that way.) Ok, link up your giveaways!:)
