NurtureStore welcomes everyone. Our resources are designed to be useful, do-able and inclusive for children whether you are at home, in school, or mixing and matching. Today we’re talking about home education, with my pick of the best blogs for homeschoolers.
21 must-follow homeschool blogs
This resource is focused on the best blogs to follow for homeschoolers. There is such a friendly, encouraging online community of homeschooling families and, especially when you’re starting out with educating at home, it’s so good to find your tribe, see how other people are doing things, and get inspiration and support.
It’s very hard to pick just a small list of blogs to recommend, as I know and love many blogging friends. But I also think it’s so important to keep things simple and not to feel overwhelmed by just how many resources are available out there. So with this list I’ve tried to give a really good starting point for you if you are new homeschooling parent.
Many, though not all, of these blogs are written by homeschoolers, and they give a really useful, first-place-to-head-to resource of ideas, practical tips, inspiration and community. I’ve listed the blog links, and their Facebook pages and Instagram accounts too. If you follow everyone here, you’ll find you’re set with a great reading list as you begin your homeschool journey.
