Have you been enjoying our 2015 homeschool day in the life series so far?
There will be plenty more posts coming your way in the next couple of weeks, and I’d love to invite you to write your own!
Write about your homeschool day in the life between now and the end of the month on your own blog, then come by here on Monday, February 2nd and link up to your post.
It’s always fun to virtually visit each other that way, so please join us!
Enjoy this week’s homeschool inspiration:
- On grieving, growing up, and living wide awake :: From contributor Kari Patterson of Sacred Mundane
- I’m done making my kid’s childhood magical :: Huffington Post
- How to become a better cook through practice :: Real Life at Home
- How I plan our interest-led homeschool :: An Everyday Story
- Hand-dipped beeswax candles :: Becoming Kindred (We’re making these today!)
My recommendations this week:
These sweet shows from Rabbit Ears Productions are FREE to watch with Amazon Prime, and perfect for 6-8 year-olds.
Each episode stems from a classic book or folktale, and the ones we’ve watched are simple, lovely, and inspiring!
Without a doubt, you need to add Blue Birds to your kids’ “must read in 2015” list. If they’re over age 10 and into early US history, poetry (it’s written in verse), and/or mystery/suspense, they’ll love it…and learn a ton, too.
And if you pre-order Caroline’s book now, email a copy of your receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org by 01/19 to receive a beautiful PDF of a quote from the book!
Featured sponsors this week:
Are you inspired by the Waldorf style of homeschooling? If so, check out Lavender’s Blue Homeschool.
Kelly offers a full Kindergarten and 1st grade curriculum, and also a sweet FREE audio download of “Sing your Day” – 12 songs for a peaceful day!
Imagine Childhood is a favorite online place to browse when it comes to upcoming birthdays, holidays, or for homeschool supplies.
They carry well-made, eco-friendly, long-lasting games, toys, globes, microscopes, dollhouses, & art supplies.
My youngest, Elijah (9), still requests Sparkle Stories on a daily basis – and that gives me time to homeschool another child in peace…or make dinner…or breathe deeply.
What a gift these imaginative tales have been to our family!
“True teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross; then, having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create their
own.” ~ Nikos Kazantzakis
I’m excited about those Sweet Stories, thanks for sharing!

I really appreciate the recommendations of what you’ve found with Amazon Prime, especially the video content. We recently signed up for it and I’ve had no clue of what was available for children! My daughter just loves the Rabbit Ear productions. *Thank* you!
(Any documentary type shows you’ve enjoyed?)
The inspiration links you posted this week all really resonated with me, whether they reinforced what I already hold dear or taught me something new. Thank you!
