The Old Schoolhouse Magazine
I love to talk homeschooling and I'm happy to share any information or opinion that others might find helpful. Sometimes a friend will joke that I'm the one to ask because I am familiar with many names... curriculum, authors, book titles, etc. But the truth is that I really don't personally know "so much" about homeschooling. There are many other veteran homeschoolers out there that can also offer valuable advice and counsel regarding homeschooling. I just read a lot about homeschooling and through that I glean a lot of general information (as well as specific info. that is helpful to my personal journey). By reading a homeschool publication like The Old Schoolhouse magazine, I read reviews on a variety of curriculum options, encouraging articles written by dedicated, veteran homeschoolers with much wisdom to share, even ads that acquaint me with resources I might want to try or recommend. Some have said they don't have the time to read (isn't that what bathrooms are for?) or that they get overwhelmed with so much information. But I have found that I can learn and retain a lot from reading in small snippets of time, and that is a good use of those small snippets.
The Old Schoolhouse magazine is only available in digital format now and you can visit any day to read their digital magazine, which is loaded with useful and helpful information. They also publish a large, annual print magazine, for those of us who still prefer to bend corners and flip through real pages. One of the best ways to grow as a homeschooler is to read the resources God has provided for us. Here is the link to their Sept./Oct. digital issue… check it out HERE .
