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 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. New to this link-up? Visit our guidelines here.

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.

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!

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

  • Susan Williams at Homeschooling Etc. shared her experience with the Time Traveler Series for Hands-on Homeschooling History. I relate to Susan’s quest to find hands-on, creative learning tools to engage your homeschool students without having to create them yourself. Find out why her family is loving this hands-on series.
  • Brenda Rufener at Homeschool Diaries shared her reflections on Remembering Why I Homeschool. I think it’s a great idea to take a moment to reflect on your “why” — especially when times get tough! I relate to many of Brenda’s reasons why homeschooling is the RIGHT choice for my family.
  • Aadel Bussinger at These Temporary Tents shared her family’s April Craftiness & Snippets from Unschooling as they continue to enjoy life abroad in Seoul, Korea. Last month they were able to experience history, modernity, food, music and geography with their sight-seeing — which is “a gazillion times cooler than Disneyland,” as Aadel puts it. Read all about it on her post!

  1. Happy Mother’s Day, All. This week’s article is #13, The Ultimate Mother’s Day Gift. As a mom who homeschooled for more than 20 years, and who watches the last ones fly the nest, I know what I want for Mother’s Day, and I already have it. So do you. The younger your kids are when you recognize this, the more time, and variety, you have to enjoy this beautiful, beautiful gift.
