I’ve had the pleasure of being on the Homeschool Review Crew for the past three years. In fact, it was only our first semester of homeschooling that we weren’t on the Crew! Though sometimes working on the Crew does mean a lot of work, the benefits far outweigh the drawbacks!
Opportunity to Try Amazing Homeschool Products
As a member of the Crew, each year I get to review amazing homeschool products, many I never knew existed before I had the opportunity to review them. Each year, we enjoy some of the products that we review so much that they become part of our regular curriculum.
This year, there are many products that we reviewed that became a regular part of our homeschool:
Zeezok’s Music Appreciation Book 1
For the Girls:
Middlebury Spanish (review coming soon)
Helping Readers with Curriculum Reviews
When I’m researching curriculum myself to see if it would be a good fit for our family, I always go to Cathy Duffy’s website first. But after her professional opinion, I really just want to hear from homeschooling moms like myself. That’s where other homeschool moms’ blogging reviews come in.
My hope is that by reviewing the Crew products, I can help other moms decide if a product is right for them just like other homeschooling bloggers help me.
The Camaraderie Can’t Be Beat
Another benefit of being on the Crew is the camaraderie. The Crew has its own forum, and there, the Crew bloggers discuss everything from homeschooling, curriculum, blogging, social media, and many other things. If you have a question, chances are one of the more than 180 ladies (and one man!) on the Crew will be able to help you out.
If you blog and homeschool, you, too, could have the chance to review for the Crew. The Crew is currently taking applications.
Then you can fill out the application to join the Crew. Tell them I sent you.
