Stuff We Like :: 6.7.19

home school life secular homeschool magazine

One of my favorite things is being surrounded by stacks and stacks of curriculum galleys and knowing that in a couple of weeks, they will be off to the printer, and I will be lounging by the pool. 

WHAT’S HAPPENING AT HOME/SCHOOL/LIFE

  • in the magazine: We’re hard at work on the summer issue — and we’re trying something new, which Suzanne has declared “awesome.” 

  • on patreon: If you missed the first of our live seminar sessions on how to homeschool high school, you can catch the recording any time before the next session starts on Tuesday.

  • in the store: Our high school curriculum sale ends June 15, so if you want to score our best discount, now’s the time to order.

  • at the academy: Our fall schedule of online high school classes is up now! (We’ll have middle school options up later this month.)

  • with the curriculum: If you’re using the Year Two curriculum and want to be added to the AP U.S. History or AP Government online class, we’d love to have you join us! Look for details in the curriculum Facebook group early August. (There’s no charge to join the AP class, but you do have to be a Year Two curriculum student to join.)

  • from the archives: Exploring the Oregon Trail through literature, a look back at Amy’s 9th grade homeschool (I can’t believe we’re coming up on her senior year!), and the life-changing magic of embracing your child’s reading choices

LINKS I LIKED

  • "Illegal border crossings” in the other direction tend to get ignored, but they’re happening all the time.

  • Um, how did you get in my bedroom? And I really am going to read all of those! (Eventually.)

  • I found this piece about Waldorf, privilege, and vaccinations fascinating. (Disclosure: Our daughter went to a Waldorf school before we started homeschooling. She has never missed a vaccination.)

  • Why DO we trust online star ratings?

  • How social media has changed the way we mourn.
