People all over are loving Pinterest. All you have to do is “pin” your favorite ideas illustrated by engaging photos to your virtual cork boards. Ideas are all over the internet from recipes to crafts to quipping quotes for your wall and homeschooling tips to make you a better teacher. And oh, yes, I’m going to talk about using Pinterest for homeschooling and share some other resources to help you on your homeschooling journey, which can feel like a journey of constant critiquing and change.
Usually when I get on Pinterest I am browsing what others are pinning. But sometimes I just happen to come across something on the web that I just want to pin for myself. Its easy enough to do and having all those organized boards is so nice. (Don’t you feel more organized on Pinterest?)
plan to continue adding to. Be sure to look for other homeschooling boards because they will have tips, ideas, lesson plans and crafts, too. A virtual smorgasbord of ideas!
Here are some other sites I use that have a lot to offer homeschooling parents.
Homechoolshare.com also has a direct link to the FREE Lapbooks you can do with your kids. These are great as you can combine art, writing, reading, and your subject (like science or history). Last year we did several lapbooks. This year we are focusing on note-booking moreso.
Homeschoolreviews.com is a site where parents share their thoughts on various curriculum available today.
Notebookingpages.com is a great site where I recommend signing up for a free account, as I have. I’ve also bought from Debra. She’ll give you freebies. (And, that link is my affiliate link. That just means if you buy, she has a program that rewards me for sharing).
Free Kindle Books are available for download to your computer. Yes, you read that right. I don’t own a Kindle, but I downloaded the free Kindle Reading App from Amazon onto my computer and now I can scoop up FREE Kindle books, too. This can become addicting as you can find so many free Kindle books. I wrote about it and shared some direct links to a few different categories here at my blog. The link to the Kindle App is there too.
If you are not on Pinterest and want to be you may still have to request an invite. I think I got in faster by having someone “invite” me vs. waiting on Pinterest to send me one. If you’d like an invite, I’ll try to help you out. Leave a comment below.
If you have any great homeschooling sites you’d like to share please tell me about them in the comments, too!
