There are so many great homeschooling blogs out there! No matter what your educational style, there is something out there for you — from school-at-home to unschooling. Finding a homeschool blog that matches your style or curriculum choices can be a great help to you as you homeschool. It can offer encouragement, inspiration, practical help, as well as useful resources such as printables and downloadable curriculum. Today I’m sharing the top 5 blogs I follow and utilize for the above mentioned reasons:
Amongst Lovely Things
Sarah Mackenzie is the classically homeschooling mother of six children. She’s also the author of the successful book Teaching From Rest and the host of The Read Aloud Revival podcast. Her blog is full of inspiration and encouragement for your homeschooling journey. If you’d like a taste of what she has to offer, start with one of my favourite posts, You’re More Classical Than You Think.
Classically Homeschooling is the blog of Sarah Denis, a classically (obviously!) homeschooling mother of 6 children. Her blog offers practical information on Classical Education, homeschool organization, and more. She co-hosts the Trivium Tuesday weekly link-up with another great blog, Living and Learning at Home. If you are wondering about Classical Education, check out her series of posts on The Five Different Approaches to Classical Education.
Simply Convivial is Mystie Winkler’s blog. She is a homeschooled homeschooling mother of 5 kids. Her blog is chock full of organization tips (as is her other blog: Simplified Organization) and she offers many free and paid e-courses and seminars to help other homeschoolers. She has amazingly helpful tips and resources for having a Morning Time in your homeschool, which I highly recommend!
This blog will appeal to a wide range of homeschoolers. Heading up the site is Jamie Martin, a homeschooling mother of 3. There are many other contributors to the site (including Sarah Mackenzie of Amongst Lovely Things), which is what makes Simple Homeschool have such a wide appeal — there are so many varying educational philosophies represented. There is so much encouragement offered there! Check out this post on your The Five Love Languages of Homeschooling.
A Holy Experience
Ok, so I admit that this isn’t really a homeschooling blog. But Ann Voskamp is a homeschooling mother of 6 (what is it about that number?!) and her words are so full of grace, her pictures are so beautiful, and she has so much to share of what is true, good, and beautiful — that I just had to add her to my list. Besides, if you look around on her blog, you will see some posts about homeschooling. Have you seen her homeschool room? Drool. And I’m not even a believer in having a homeschool room! Check out her site for so many beautiful printables too!
Well, there you have it! Those are my top 5 favourite homeschooling blogs — what are yours?
