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


MomRebecca from Mom’s Mustard Seeds shared how an engaging new board game is teaching her family more than geography in “Teach US Geography with a Board Game.” I can’t wait to get my hands on this game, I know my girls will love it!


Mandy at The Little Things in Our Life shared about how she transformed her dining room into the schoolroom: “The Homeschool {dining} Room.” I am a dining room homeschooler too, so I really enjoyed getting some new ideas from Mandy. Great tips for getting around any limitations of your homeschooling space!


Heather Bowen at UpsideDown Homeschooling shared a list of tips for “How to Name Your Homeschool.” This is something that we still haven’t accomplished in our family after almost three years of homeschooling — these tips inspired me to get the ideas flowing again!

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

From The Trials & Triumphs of a Passionate Parent, MomMomHill shared “6 Fun & Simple Activities To Reinforce God’s Word” that are simple, fun and effective!

Heather from Dandelions Picked shared about a festive “Frindle Mystery Lunch” that was part of her daughter’s novel study of the book “Frindle” by Andrew Clements.
