Stuff We Likeamy sharony1 Comment
home|school|life’s Friday roundup of the best homeschool links, reads, tools, and other fun stuff has lots of ideas and resources. 

This week has been NUTS! We officially started 10th grade and 4th grade in our homeschool, and Jason’s school (where I am teaching a motley crew of classes, including Latin, AP English, and Greek Literature as well as mentoring all of this year’s seniors) officially opened its doors for the 2017-18 school year. In other news, I am helping support all the friendly delivery people at our local delivery joints and I am learning to love my daily cup of coffee in an entirely new way. Which is all a long way of saying this may be a short round-up! 

 

around the web

I know the college drop-off is looming in our future, so of course this essay made me cry.

This is the most introvert-perfect book club ever! (Now I want to start one…)

Netflix is making a series for the Who Was biographies! Sign us up.

on the blog: What can you do after high school if you don’t want to jump right into college? A lot! (People sometimes ask me what the difference is between the magazine and the blog, and I think this story—from the magazine—is a great example: There’s tons of original reporting, lots of specific resources, and more room to explore a topic thoroughly in the magazine.)

one year ago: Start a joy journal. (Still one of my favorite pieces of homeschool advice!)

two years ago: We loved Book Scavenger (and now there’s a sequel -- thanks A!)

 

at home

I did not read anything not related to classes or work, I did not make any progress on my socks (though I did make the heel turn before I had to pause, and it went surprisingly well), I did not cook anything, I did not watch anything except for 12 Angry Men, which we screened for our first school movie club. I am kind of boring this week, so maybe you could tell me something fun you did in the comments? :)
