Top Ten Homeschooling Posts From 2017

The new year is a great time to look forward, to make new plans, to think about what's to come. But the end of one year and beginning of another can also be a time to look back over the previous year. As a new year begins, I always enjoy looking back over which posts from the blog have been the most popular over the the past year.

And so, in this post, I'm presenting the ten most popular posts from 2017. Some of these are newer posts and some have been on the blog for some time. New and old, they're the posts that have been read most often throughout this past year. I hope that you can enjoy and find benefit from these top ten posts- presented here in order from least to most read.

Not surprisingly, most of these posts are all about books. If you've been around the blog at all, you'll know that I love literature and that we use literature-based homeschool curricula. Several of these posts are literature unit studies. If you like using literature unit studies, you can get my free ebook of 31 Days of Literature Unit Studies to get even more.
