A Homeschool Coffee Break August Preview @ - what's coming up this month on the Homeschool Coffee Break blog

As of now, I don't have any Schoolhouse Crew reviews on my August calendar, but there's still plenty to look forward to this month! Next week is the 5 Days of Homeschool 101 Blog Hop hosted by the Schoolhouse Review Crew.

5 Days of Homeschool 101

From the High School Lesson Book is my weekly post on something related to homeschooling high school. It's accompanied by a link-up inviting anyone homeschooling their high school students to share their posts about the experience as well. The most recent is From the High School Lesson Book - Planning Ahead.

The Virtual Refrigerator is a weekly art link-up that I've been participating in and co-hosting for a few years. The idea is that in our homes we often display our children's latest artwork on our fridge, so why not expand that and show off their projects on a Virtual Fridge?! Each week we invite bloggers to "grab a virtual magnet" and do just that. I've found that those virtual magnets can hold all kinds of projects - not just drawings and paintings, but sculpture, models, sewing and other handcrafts, and crafty home decor! Posts showing your child's artwork or your own, or how-to posts are welcome. Join in the fun! My daughter's most recent project is this Glass TARDIS, and a new Virtual Refrigerator link will open tomorrow morning for your posts!

There are a couple days left in the Apologia Curriculum sale, so I would be remiss to not mention that. Their homeschool conference special has been extended to the online store until August 5th, which means a 25% savings deal on Apologia-published resources, even if you didn't make it to a conference this year. Special savings on shipping too!

Apologia provides amazing Science curriculum, but they also have top-rated Bible and Worldview curriculumLanguage Arts resources, a wonderful Geography curriculum, a new and timely course in Constitutional Literacy, and more! You'll also find the amazing Ultimate Homeschool Planner that we reviewed awhile ago.

While all this is going on, I'm still finding a few minutes here and there to clean up desks and bookshelves, finalize lesson plans for the new school year, and make some vacation plans for later this month. I hope you're enjoying these summer days too!

What are you most looking forward to in the next month? Leave a comment and let me know!
