The beginning of the year is a great time to reflect on the previous year. I thought it would be fun to look back on my top homeschool posts for 2017. Looking back at what was popular is a little bit like a time capsule because it highlights trends in education, current events, and popular curriculums. It will be interesting to see how this changes in the future. I analyzed my data to find my top 10 posts of 2017.
2017 Top Homeschool Posts
It doesn’t surprise me that this post is by far the top homeschool post on OrganizedHomeschooler.com in 2017. I love reading comments and emails from moms telling me how much this method has helped their children. It is a quick and fairly easy way to boost reading skills. This technique can be used with other subjects too!
Learning to sew is an excellent life skill for girls AND boys. My kids made rice hot and cold packs using this tutorial. It is so easy, a complete beginner can do it.
Were you able to see the August 2017 eclipse? It seemed like everyone in the entire country had eclipse glasses and tried to catch a peek. We used these educational resources in the weeks leading up to the eclipse.
My kids seem to learn through their stomachs and I am happy to capitalize on that information. Decorating a cake with candies representing various organelles really helped them remember the information. And it was delicious.
Strategic meal planning is one of the ways I keep my days running smoothly. Homeschool parents are busy and always on the go, so having a good plan in place helps keep us from ordering pizza.
Many people think that Khan Academy is only a supplemental math program. It really can be a complete math curriculum though! There is a way to set an account up so that your child covers all of the math standards for each grade level.
Every parent, homeschooling or not, needs to teach their children about fire safety. It really can be a matter of life or death. The trick is to teach children fire safety skills without scaring them. This top homeschool post of 2017 can show you how to teach fire safety without instilling fear.
We all know to prepare our kids for back to school time, but it is equally important to prepare the parents. These are the steps I use to get myself back into a school routine.
We have used this spelling curriculum for over a year now and we still love it. This program has really helped my children learn to spell naturally.
Part of the fun of homeschooling is the ability to turn anything into an educational opportunity. My family loves doughnuts so we baked doughnuts, read a story, and completed a few educational activities.
I’m curious what the top homeschool posts of 2018 will look like…
