Homeschool Tips from Sprittibee


Next week my friend Kelly at Pass the Torch is gathering up everyone's tips for beginner homeschoolers. She's going to post a "Mr. Linky" with links from everyone's homeschool blog posts. Join her next week and share as many links to posts as you would like.

This post is my contribution to her series and I hope that if YOU are a first time reader here, you'll browse some of the links below. I have gathered up my "best of" posts that were written to help new homeschoolers navigate their journey as they set sail on the road to learning at home. God bless you and give you wisdom as you begin this new adventure.

I've been homeschooling for the past five years. This next school year will be our 6th. My kids are starting 4th and 5th grades this coming school-year. I keep records of all our learning adventures here at this blog for new homeschoolers (and old) to browse through for ideas and encouragement. This blog is my homeschool scrapbook, my journal, my personal family photo album and more. I also keep tons of homeschooling links in my sidebars... many that we use in our own studies every week.

Thanks for the heads up, Heather.

Love your tips...you are the KONOS Queen. ;)

Sprittibee said...

Awwww, you are too kind. I'm certainly Queen Bee at home... but I'm hardly a Queen of Homeschooling - or KONOS. I am just a regular worker-bee just like everyone else... trying to teach the little bees and stay busy.

Kelly Curtis said...

Thanks for the announcement, Heather! And what an excellent post! Just what I'm hoping to see lots of in this project!

Sprittibee said...

Thanks Kelly. :) It took a while to get all the links in one post, but now I have them in one place (most of them, anyway) and it will be a LOT easier when I get questions to send just ONE link rather than 20.

Dianne - Bunny Trails said...

Thanks, Heather! I love that all your links are together in one post now. I was just perusing some of them yesterday as I begin to make plans for 2007-08.

This should be an awesome project and the timing couldn't be better.

Blessings! :)

Thank'ya, sweetie. I have been needing to reorganize my blog forever and a day. I'm getting really unhappy with it lately. I may do something drastic. :)
