Favorite Online Resources for the Homeschooling Parent


As homeschooling parents, it is important to have QUALITY resources at our disposal.

For me, this comes in the form of eBooks I can have access to from my laptop and/or iPad. 

I don't need many - just a few that I can turn to when I have questions, need encouragement, or want how-to information.

Following are 5 of my favorite resources that are out there right now - resources I own and use on a consistent basis.

1. The Weekly Homeschool Planner from Jolanthe Erb

Jolanthe has created a simple, editable planner for homeschool parents. Being a homeschooling mom of 4, Jolanthe knows what is important to me and makes record keeping EASY.  

Everything that Jolanthe does is beautiful and well thought out. I know you will love the planner.

2. Notebooking Success from Jimmie (aka The Notebooking Fairy)

We are huge notebooking fans in our homeschool. It has given my children a way to record (and a way for me to document) their learning. It allows creativity to SHINE and let children express themselves through pictures, writing, and so much more. 

Notebooking Success is an introduction to notebooking and includes all of the how-tos and specifics. It even includes many notebooking pages as a bonus.

This was my notebooking bible when I first started!

4. The Art of Strewing by Aadel Bussinger

Aadel is an unschooler who teaches us in this book how to "strew" materials throughout your life and home to inspire and educate your children. 

Even though we classically educate our children, I learned A LOT from Aadel's book about how to strew things in my own house. I love her ideas!
