The Old Schoolhouse - A Guest Review

Jennifer has let me be a guest blogger today. Thanks Jenn! I am a home schooling mom of 3 kids and have come across two products I would like to review for you.

I subscribe to The Old Schoolhouse magazine. This is a home schooling magazine. They have developed a planner with a wealth of forms and ideas for keeping a busy mom (home schooling or not) on top of her game. There are calendars, topic ideas and recipes for every month of the year. There are home schooling forms for record keeping and planning. There is a section for household forms for grocery shopping, babysitting, vacation planning, and anything else you need for running a smooth household. The best thing I like about the planner is that it is written in Adobe and you can customize the pages to fit your needs better. You can also save what you have done. The graphics are great and this is something I know that I will enjoy using this entire year.

The other product I would like to review for you is the digital version of The old Schoolhouse Magazine. This is a new option they have developed for subscribers. You can turn the pages and click on articles to read further. One feature I really liked was the ability to forward articles to friends that may benefit from reading them. The one thing I didn’t like was that while “thumbing” through the magazine I found the print a little small and blurry. Of course this is easily remedied by zooming in or clicking on the article to read it. The magazine is great. The articles are current and cover a variety of topics ranging from current affairs to teaching topics. There are products advertised for all methods of home schooling. This is a great way to view the magazine.

Thanks for letting me take the time to share with you these two products. I know fully what it means to be busy and how delighted when a friend shares with me what makes her life easier. If this blog has sparked any interest in home schooling or this planner or magazine you can find them both at TheOldSchoolhouseMagazine.com.

Thanks again,
Tess
