Two Homeschooling Resources We Loved This Year

This year two resources that were new to our homeschool stood out amongst the rest and really shined as our favorite things. I've written a lot on the subject of curriculum and resources, reviewing and relaying what has worked and what hasn't been great for us, so today I'm just going to focus on telling you about the cream of the crop in our home from the 2014/2015 school year.

Deep Space Sparkle

Have you been over to Patty Palmer's beautiful art blog, Deep Space Sparkle yet? Patty is an art teacher here in California and she is producing some stunning projects to do with students in any setting. Take a look at her homeschool starter kit.

Since Annesley was in 5th grade and Christian in 2nd, I thought I could use the projects from 50-Minute Art Projects for the two of them. It was perfect!

Who is My Neighbor and Why Does He Need Me?

Our second favorite of the year is Who is My Neighbor and Why Does He Need Me? from Apologia. The third in the What We Believe series, I chose it because I felt we could all use a brush-up on serving our neighbors, both outside of our home and in (if you know what I mean ;) )

I already wrote about Who is My Neighbor over on the HomeschoolingIRL blog, so I'm going to be a bit summer lazy and send you there for more info.
