The list of homeschool tips and advice is HERE - please share your links and visit participants there.

I posted this call for tips at this week’s Carnival of Homeschooling, hosted by Consent of the Governed. There are always great reads at this carnival, so check it out!

Next week, I’ll share the results of our homeschool experiment. I’ll take most the week to do this, and I expect that many families considering homeschooling will click on the series over time. I’d like to end the week with a group collaboration of homeschooling tips.

So if you’re a homeschooler, please consider joining me next Friday, June 22, to write about your best advice for new homeschoolers. I’ll post a Mr. Linky, and you can link yourself to a new post you’ve written for this collaboration, or an older post, that meets this criteria. You can share one tip, or ten!

Please tell people about this writing project, so that others can participate as well. (Feel free to use the graphic above in your announcement.) I’d love to be able to provide Google searchers a “tips” post that contains all our collective expertise.

I’ll be leaving on a trip shortly after the Mr. Linky goes up next week, so your links will be the reading material for my readers while I’m gone. I hope you’ll join me!

Thank you so much for your announcements: Principled Discovery, Redbud’s Lane, Through the Looking Glass, My Quivers Full, The Zoo, My Twenty Cents Keeps Moving, Life With Two Little Vikings, Sprittibee, Happy Hearts at Home, Kris’ Eclectic Homeschool, Eclectic Education, Mom is Teaching, From Melissa’s Desk, Ten O’Clock Scholar, One Child Policy Homeschool, Our Homeschooling Expedition, The Common Room, Adventures in the 100 Acre Wood, Why Homeschool.
