I am happy to be posting this week's carnival of homeschooling, but since this past week was thanksgiving weekend, alot of our regulars were off giving thanks and didn't submit posts. But never fear, there's still plenty to share. We've found a couple of new bloggers to add to our carnival, and I want to introduce you to some of my favorite homeschool vloggers, and encourage you to give that a try too.
I will start with a post of my own from last summer, as you can see, I posted the vlog on Youtube, and then embedded it into my homeschool blog. Eeasy-Peasy. You will find Homeschool Vlog Hop at Notes from a Homeschooled Mom, presented by me, Andrea.
As you can see from my post/vlog, I am pretty much done with hands-on homeschooling of my own children. The next post is from another homeschooling family who have a lot of homeschooling years under their belt with some children graduated, and some in progress. Read about how Janine reflects on homeschooling and family time with Homeschooling and family time at Why Homeschool.
Another vlog hop edition gives a tour of the home. In this video, you may see a bit of your own
There are sooooo many curriculum choices as we discovered in our next vlog hop edition. Parents had to post multiple vidoes to cover all that they had accumulated. Here is a video that will give you an idea of what one family had to share.
Now I would like to introduce you to Sharla at the Chaos and Clutter Blog. Her wonderful entry shows us What a "typical" homeschool family looks like.
Also, Laurie presents Ron Paul Curriculum Tip of the Week - SAT or CLEP? at Trivium Pursuit.
If you've started poking around through the homeschool vlogs on youtube, you may have noticed that some vlogs are planned, with the suggestion of a title and everyone jumping in. Others come from the heart and are more spontaneous. In this case, encouragement for homeschool moms may inspire you, or inspire you to encourage someone else.
Speaking of curriculum, Mystie presents the ever seasonal Advent Term Plans at Simply Convivial.
The following post presented by Chris entitled Blessings and Miracles at Home School vs Public School is also quite inspirational.
If videos are not your thing, perhaps you can try adding pictures. The blog post presented by Melissa entitled Day in the Life of Us, in which she details an entire day activity by activity, with lots of vibrant pictures, is very enlightening. You can find more of this blog at The Corkums.
Another subject also shared among homeschool vloggers is Why do I homeschool. The reasons run the gamut. It could be anything from problems in schools, to wanting a unique or spiritual upbringing fro the children. The following video is one such example.
Last but not least, I had to ask this blogger for permission to add her post to the carnival, because it summarizes everything I feel about early education. So please read Liz's post Play to be Happy at Lizness.com.
I hope you enjoyed this edition of the Carnival of homeschooling. I hope I gave you some ideas about different ways to share your homeschool experience, whether it be through vlogs, traditional blogs, or photo blogs.
