Weblink Wednesday - Resources and More Resources


With the homeschool conference still fresh in my mind, I thought I would share with you some of the resources I discovered this weekend. These are just a few that I pulled from my notes and that are from the speakers we saw.

Excellence In Writing - Andrew Pudewa is one of the best speakers I have heard. He imparted so much useful information we decided to purchase the cds of all his seminars. If you are looking for some language, spelling, or music curriculm, his might be what you are looking for.

The Nature of Learning - This site is Marian Soderholm's she is a Learning Disabilities Specialist who is down to earth and makes a lot of sense. There is a link on her site to a huge amount of resources for all sorts of learning differences. She also does assessments if you are so inclined.

Family Ministries - Reb Bradely and his wife hosted workshops. We went to one called Winning your Child's Heart. I am going to post later about that one. It was amazing. So, they have books and CDs about parenting among other things.

Preschoolers and Peace - If you have a preschooler you have to visit this site. Kendra was so encouraging with every word she spoke. I left her workshop equipped and knowing that I will be able to survive this year. We already started using some of her advice with amazing results.

Exploration Education - These guys had a booth in the convention hall. They have hands on science curriculum that includes everything you need. A friend of mine who is a veteran homeschool mom (she has graduated 2 of her kids and is currently homeschooling her younger 2.) told me she used this and it was really easy and fun. She also told me the kits include everything. So, Daddy Reg and I decided we are going to order it.

HSLDA - I am putting this on the list for anyone who is just new to homeschooling or hasn't heard about them. Homeschool Legal Defense Association is any homeschooler's biggest asset. They work hard to keep homeschooling legal no matter what state you are in. I highly recommend every homeschool family becoming a member. Along with legal defense you also have access to resources of all kinds.

So, there you have it. Just some of the many resources we discovered this weekend. I hope that something here will be of use to you.

  2. Those are really good. I especially like the Preschoolers and Peace. It seems like I saw that one time, but I had forgotten about it.

    Glad you had a great time at the conference.

  3. Hi!
    I love Andrew Pudewa, too! I had the privilege of interviewing him recently...you might want to listen to his ideas about classical versus leadership education in his own home. You can access the audio at Andrew 's interview. Hope you enjoy!
