What’s Working Wednesday 2013: Week One

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our disclosure policy for details.

NextGen Homeschool’s “What’s Working” Wednesday Link-Up is a place for fellow homeschoolers to link up a post about anything you are using in your homeschool and household that is working well for you, such as a particular curriculum, teaching method, creative ideas, organizational approaches, technology tools, helpful books and blogs, balancing homeschool with life/work/personal, etc. Feel free to link up several posts that follow the “what’s working” theme.

We’ve found that in our fellowship with other homeschooling moms, we always want to know what’s working for others. Here’s your chance to tell us what’s working for you and learn from others in our diverse homeschooling community!

We encourage you to visit the other sites by clicking on the links and reading all of the fantastic ideas and insights shared by other bloggers. Also don’t forget to join the fun by adding your blog links. We request that if you join this link up, please add the “What’s Working Wednesday” link-up button below to your post or blog sidebar so your readers can find us here.


If you are a “NextGen” homeschooler (formerly homeschooled parent) like us, we invite you to share posts with a “NextGen” perspective as well. Tell us what worked (or didn’t work) for you when you were a homeschooled student, and why you approach homeschooling the way you do now. What if anything have you passed on from your homeschooling experience to your homeschooled children? How did your experience influence your decision to homeschool?

We encourage you to visit at least one link-up post that catches your attention each week, and “like” any posts that you read and find particularly helpful. Thank you for joining us on this journey to discover “what’s working” for other homeschoolers. We are hoping to learn a lot from you too!

  1. Hi! Not totally sure that my post is the type you’re looking for but I linked up our Holland Tri-Fold Board project from last spring. Now that I know about this party, I’ll try and be better about taking pictures of stuff we do!

    I’m hosting a Homemaking Linkup Weekend and would love to have you come link up if you’re interested!

    Have a great weekend,
    Mrs. Sarah Coller

    1. Hello Sarah! Your post is great — we’re basically looking for good ideas, projects, tools, resources, methods, curriculum, etc. that you’ve used and enjoyed. Thanks for sharing your tri-fold board, we’ve never tried that but I know one of my girls would love to make one. I will visit your link-up as well, thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks for linking up w/ Thriving Thursdays! I was out of town last week, but I’m looking forward to joining in your link up this week! Can’t wait to get ideas from other homeschooling moms 🙂
