Applying For Another Year With The Homeschool Review Crew #hsreviews

It is that time of year again when the Homeschool Review Crew year is winding down. I have written 44 reviews this year and still have seven to complete by the middle of November and then we will take a break until the new year begins. 

There is a lot that still goes on while the Review Crew is not reviewing curriculum. The leaders will be choosing some members to bring back from this year, but they will also be looking at new people to add to the team. If you homeschool and have a blog you may want to apply

I have been part of the Homeschool Review Crew since 2010. My kids and I always want to reapply and I wanted to share with you why we love being a part of it. 

I like helping fellow homeschool families. Just today we attended a field trip with our local homeschool group and one of the moms told me they bought a math program that we reviewed and I had previously told her about. I am the treasurer of our local group and the library will give my name to people when they ask about homeschooling in our area. Those conversations easily turn to curriculum and after homeschooling for 21 years and reviewing homeschool curriculum for 6 I usually have some very good suggestions. 

Every year I ask my girls if they want to continue reviewing school items and their reply is always the same. They think it would be boring if we didn't add new things into our school year. Some of the items we review become my kids favorites and I would have never thought it would work for them. 

I also love how the being part of the Crew challenges me. I am normally a very quiet private person that wouldn't always give my opinion in a conversation. By writing my blog and reviewing curriculum I have opened up my home and school to share with everyone else.

Glad you're returning for another year! I love being a part of the Crew - and yes, it's so rewarding to hear that friends of mine have found great curriculum because of reviews we've done. :-)

It is definitely a great way to change things us when a new review comes along during the school year. How wonderful to see the fruits of your labors with your friends' comments. - Lori

I love it when I can recommend a product based on what we have reviewed. It has been helpful to other homeschool moms in my area and I love helping them.
