WTM Forums is a wonderful resource! As a new homeschooler, I'm very grateful for all the advice that can be found here. But...there are dozens of threads every day.

What I would really love to see is a "best of" threads for 2011, or of all time. Has anyone collected such a list...recently?

If not, maybe we can use this thread to point others to our favorite threads. What are your favs, please???

Why you should work on TWTM skills - copywork, narration, dictation, outlining, etc.

On the logic board, you can click the "rating" tag and all the favorite threads come to the top!

Don't know why it does not exist on the k-8 board.

Sadly, the stars were abused on some of the other boards. :glare: The Logic Board is relatively new and that function wasn't disabled when it was started.

I know it's been awhile, but I wanted to add a few that have come up recently or I've just found.

Homeschooling poll

A gentle proposal to moms of youngers.

K and first grade mistakes

The whole writing curricula series was very timely for me and helped me decide the path I should take with my rising 7th grader.

My evaluation of numerous writing curricula

Anyone willing to post CW or CC progym. writing samples??

Re: classical writing curricula -- what is your preference and why?

8 Fill the Heart and Angela in Ohio and anyone else- question from the writing thread

To all you people with 8th graders (or there abouts)...

For those of you with 8th graders considering homeschooling high school...
