Today I’m eager to share the Top 5 Blog, She Wrote Pinterest Boards for Homeschooling Teens. Honestly, I love Pinterest and I’ve been creating new boards whenever I can classify content specifically for middle and high school. I only got to choose 5 for this post, but I have more boards for teens that I adore. Feel free to follow any of my boards. The more, the merrier! Are you ready for my favorites?
Blog, She Wrote posts related to eReader Homeschooling:
- Ten Reasons to Use a Kindle in your Homeschool Part 1– focuses on the e-ink readers.
- Ten Reasons to Use a Kindle in Your Homeschool Part 2– all about the Kindle Fire. One of the best economical tools for our homeschool hands down!
All things high school related are found on this board. I started out with just one highschool board, but I’m starting to add specific course names to my boards like chemistry, biology, and U.S. History.

You’ll find ways to incorporate technology into your homeschool– whether it’s using Netflix or using an Arduino unit to program simple electronics. I’m not much for apps though we use a select few for a select purpose. I’m much more interested in our kids being makers and I try to focus on that as I collect ideas.

- Teaching with Technology– You are invited to review the G+ Hangout we did last month on using technology in our homeschool. I participated on the panel and I share how we use tech here at our house.

The projects gathered here are ideas and reporting on student-driven projects. These aren’t units or parent directed projects, but the kind that come from a student’s own motivation and desire to learn.

I love to spend time on Pinterest saving things for a day when I need a great idea. Sometimes it’s all you need to spark something you can really use. Do you use Pinterest?
