What Being on the Homeschool Review Crew Means to Me

I’ve had the pleasure of being on the Homeschool Review Crew for the past six 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:

For PB & J Girl:

CTC Math

Dyslexia Gold

Memoria Press 5th Grade Literature Set

Matific  Galaxy

Jump In, 2nd Edition

For Both Girls:

We also got to review several products that were extras to our homeschool that we’ve loved:

Fun Family Chess

Brain Blox Family Fun Chess

Brain Blox Building Planks

Library and Educational Services, LLC

Stop Motion Animation Kit

That’s not to mention some of the items we’ve reviewed that I’ve tucked away to use for later such as Apologia Exploring Creation with General Science, 3rd Edition.

Plus, every Homeschool Crew Review member gets a free subscription to SchoolhouseTeachers.com!

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 160 ladies on the Crew will be able to help you out.
