Homeschool Resource Game of Tag

My sweet friend Cheryl tagged me in the newest Meme about Homeschooling Resources. Here are my answers.

ONE HOMESCHOOL BOOK I HAVE ENJOYED ... My absolute favorite was Pocketful of Pinecones by Karen Andreola. It is the greatest inspiration. I plan to purchase the sequel soon, because our library doesn't have it.

ONE RESOURCE I WOULDN'T BE WITHOUT ... My local library.

ONE RESOURCE I WISH I'D NEVER BOUGHT ... Apologia Biology. Textbooks are not for us.

ONE RESOURCE I ENJOYED LAST YEAR ... Learning Adventures' "A World of Adventure". It was an excellent all-inclusive unit study for a first-time homeschooler, especially for a teenage boy.

ONE RESOURCE I WILL BE USING THIS YEAR ... The internet, always.

ONE RESOURCE I WOULD LIKE TO BUY ... A microscope.

ONE RESOURCE I WISH EXISTED ... A voice-activated assignment record keeper and gradebook.

ONE HOMESCHOOL CATALOG I ENJOY READING ... I don't really look at catalogs. But, I have books and resources in my Amazon Cart at all times!! If you ever want to buy me  a gift, Amazon giftcards will be used within seconds.

ONE HOMESCHOOLING WEBSITE I USE REGULARLY ... Handbook of Nature Study and I always check Scholastic, PBS, C-Span, and many others.

TAG OTHER HOMESCHOOLERS! I decided to tag some of those homeschool moms I admire so much! Hope they will share their knowledge with you.

  3. Hi, I stopped by after seeing that Cheryl had tagged you. I signed on to FOLLOW, so I'll be back.

    I noticed that you didn't like Apologia Biology - that's exactly what I put as my answer too. LOL

    My post for this will publish on Sunday.

  4. I actually already did it, but thanks for tagging me again: http://adventuresofmommyness.blogspot.com/2011/09/homeschooling-meme.html

    Isn't it funny how different things work for different people. I love Apologia textbooks, but we also choose based on what interests them rather than because it's the "right order...."

We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
