Favorites of the Year ~ a Crew “review” of our favorite reviews

Looking back over the wonderful resources we have gotten to review is always a lot of fun. We take a seat at the table with our list of vendors and reviews. We grab a sheet of paper to keep track of our favorites with and we begin debating. 

The Homeschool Review Crew has certain categories for us to vote in and those tallies for the whole Crew will come out later this week. Ours, though, are coming to you today. Here, in no particular order, are our favorites. (As a note – we did not all agree on every category and Mom had to pull out the old “my vote counts more” to come up with a winner in a few of these.)

There were so many wonderful resources that it was really hard to choose favorites. We did “edit” a couple so that we could make sure to vote for all those we loved. Even so, I still didn’t get to include By The Way Books anywhere since my kiddos outvoted me in a couple of places. So, I am using this opportunity to say how much I do enjoy them. 

Be sure to visit the Homeschool Review Crew to find out what the final tally of votes for all of the Crew was. There are several categories that we did not vote in since we did not review anything from that categories (ex: preschool). The post will be live on the blog for the Crew on Friday, November 30, at 8 AM EST.

We have truly been blessed again this year by the vendors that work with the Crew. I encourage you to visit the links above for any (and all) of the products that you find interesting or perhaps might be interesting for your own students or personal education. 

Blessings,
At Home.
