My post about UK Christian Home Education Bloggers is the most popular post on the blog but it is time for an overhaul.
This is a list of UK based Christian home education blogs.
My criteria for inclusion are
home educating family
evangelical Christian although inclusion does not imply that we are agreed about doctrine
posting relatively frequently
some content about education
I've come across the blog-obviously! Please let me know about other relevant blogs and I will add them.
The blogs are in alphabetical order. Do visit them and be inspired!
Angelicscalliwags is written by Claire about her children's history based home education but there is so much more: a pond study, science, Before Five in a Row.
An Island Family by Graceis a blog which is relatively new to me. Gwen's posts tend to be full of links to resources and frugal ideas. As He leads is joy is where Beth writes about home educating. She educates her child with Down syndrome and writes about this as well as her trips around England. Beth hails from the US and it is always fascinating to see ourselves as others see us. Another blog by a Beth is the eponymous Beth Baker's blog. This is subtitled Homemade. Homegrown. HomeEd. Beth covers these three areas in her writing. I love her phrase Like Joseph's coat, home education is many coloured. Boyschooling, not surprisingly, has an emphasis on teaching boys although this isn't exclusive. This blog has helpful book recommendations and ideas for home education outings.
Helen writes atFor His Glory. She features unit studies done by her daughters as well as some resource recommendations.
Gracieschool posts about teaching her young children. I especially like the posts about early writing and art.
Home Education Noviceis written by Kondwani, a pen name meaning "for ever rejoicing" about her journey educating her young children. She has thoughtful articles about learning from children and motivations.
Homeschool on the Croft is written by Anne and has the most beautiful pictures of the scenery around her island home.
Organic Education features Alice's family's home education but is also useful for links to topical and political articles about home education.
Our cup of tea is from Debbie who is an American living in the UK. This is a tremendous resource for geography and a blog I visit when putting together a country unit study.
Sarah at Pyjama Schoolwrites about Montessori based home education for her two young children. She has tutorials for making DIY Montessori equipment: a particularly helpful frugal resource for home educators.
The Frog-Academyis about a large family in the North of England. The art ideas are worth exploring and I enjoy reading about another family with teenagers.
Caroline at the Joyful Keeper writes both about the Christian life and about home educating her children.
Through the Lattice is a blog from an older home educating family. I love the pictures although I dare not show the pony pictures to Younger Daughter. She already has schemes for keeping a pony in the back garden!
Shirley posts at Under an English Sky. She has the most organised and attractive looking planner that I have seen and loves to post about her garden. Young Hosannas is a blog by Kirsty who home educates her five young children. She has practical ideas for learning with little ones and the learning is naturally and clearly rooted in God's Word.
