Last week’s “What’s Working Wednesday” Top Three most viewed posts are:

LittleHouseLapbookSeriesThis valuable, custom-designed lapbook resource posted by Heather L at Marine Corps Nomads, “Complete Little House on the Prairie Lapbooks” free printables set. Our girls book club co-op just kicked off a semester of reading the Little House series, so I can’t wait to print some of these out for the girls to use along with their reading.

titanic4The creative “history come to life” tea party planned by Mrs. Sarah Coller at Hope in Every Season called “Lessons from the Titanic.” I loved the photos, I felt like I was being transported to her party on the Titanic! The pictures say it all.

Eclectic_HomeschoolingAngie McFarren of HOPE Homeschool Consulting’sEclectic Homeschooling” post provides a helpful overview of this teaching style with examples from her own homeschool.

Two more posts that also caught a lot of attention were:

  • Tamara at {School} Days Gone By shares her highly organized method for working with all four of her children in different curriculum books, “How We Homeschool Several Levels: Our Routine.” I am really impressed: I use the same multi-age curriculum for all of my girls (with the exception of adding kindergarten essentials for my youngest) because I couldn’t figure out how to work with them in separate books. Tamara shares some valuable tips on doing just that!
  • Rachel DeBruin of DiAmOnDs In ThE rOuGh shares her Top Ten tips for prospective homeschoolers in “Preparing to Homeschool~Top Ten Ways to Get Yourself Ready!” I would have loved to read a post like this one before I started homeschooling: Her tips are very insightful.

    1. I think I’m not the only one who loved seeing how you brought history to life for your children! What a great idea, and it was wonderfully captured in photos. Thanks for sharing!
