Sometimes it is nice to see how a homeschool day goes in another home. I know I often find some new ideas and always some encouragement from fellow homeschoolers. Ever wonder what a day in the life of one of our homeschool reviewers is like? We invite you take a peek! Below, our authors share a day in the life or take you on a tour of their homeschools – or both!
Come visit the places where we enjoy all the homeschool curriculum we review:
- Angie at Petra School shares her Schoolroom Organization. She also answers the question, When Do We Know a Topic Enough? and invites you over for Relaxed Learning Observations. “Do you wonder how or why we would call ourselves unschoolers to relaxed learners and yet, still use and review so many products?”
- Annie Kate at Tea Time with Annie Kate has a wonderful Serenity Prayer Made Practical. “The writer of the Serenity Prayer had undoubtedly encountered both irritating frustration and deep disasters when he wrote these famous lines. The question is: how can we make this practical?” She also shares her Unschedule with Grades 12, 10, 7 and 5, saying, “Detailed schedules, it seems to me, work best in families that don’t have animals or gardens and that don’t live close to nature.”
- Cindy at Our Journey Westward offers A Typical Day from her 10 Days of Charlotte Mason series. “It seems simple, yet really works for us. My children are academically challenged, my house is relatively clean and organized, and we all have time to pursue our passions.”
- Ellen at The Bluestocking Belle shares A Day in Our Life – At Least For Now, saying, “Since summer’s in the air, I like to keep things light, refreshing, and different.”

- Kendra at Aussie Pumpkin Patch has wonderful ideas to show you in Keeping the Homeschool Organized and also shares A Day in the Life she says, “is extraordinarily long and has absolutely no pictures in it. If you’re game to read it go for it.”
- Mary at Homegrown Learners shares Of Math, Martin Luther and Doing Hard Things as well as where they learn in their home in Abandoning the School Room. Plus, Mary says, “I naturally do not like schedules, but I know I need one to be most productive. It is a struggle for me to make and stick to a schedule.” So she has more of a routine in her Day in the Life of Homegrown Learners.
- Tricia at Hodgepodge, in her A Day in the Life at Hodgepodge says, “Sometimes I think homeschooling has taught me more than the children. This season of my life is a constant refining by fire.”
- Steve at Hodgepodge was the chief organizer, designer and brains behind Our IKEA and Chalkboard Homeschool Room, pictured above. “What began as a simple love of chalkboard resulted in a homeschool makeover of house-sized proportion. A redo based on learning styles, storage needs and sanity-saving measures.”

I don’t comment very often at Curriculum Choice, but I read every day, and have gotten many terrific ideas from you ladies. Thanks so much, and I’m sorry I haven’t said so sooner. Have a great Blog Hop!

I haven’t read much on Curriculum Choice before, but I will be from now on. I’m leaving the site open so I can browse when I’m done at iHomeschool’s blog hop!
