Disclosure: I received a free copy of this e-book in exchange for a blog post and my honest thoughts about it. 

Essential co-op tools, tips, and options for today’s homeschool families.

Thinking about joining or starting a homeschool co-op? Not sure if a co-op is a good fit? Homeschool Co-ops 101 weighs the pros, cons, and creative options available for today’s homeschool family.

  • Section 1 includes essential, digestible info on co-op ingredients such as planning and organization, schedules, teaching, finances, and addressing conflict and burnout.
  • Section 2 shares a sampling of co-op games and activities, and
  • Section 3 contains five hands-on unit studies. These ready to use studies include lessons on Leonardo da Vinci, Birds of Prey, Public Speaking, Tall Tales, and Creative Writing, and are suitable for co-op or home use. This section also includes unit study guidelines that are easily customized to suit any topic.
  • Section 4 offers suggested books, curriculum, and other resources.

Karen Lange has gathered insight from years of co-oping and now shares her own and others’ experiences in this valuable and encouraging handbook.

My Review

I really enjoyed this book. First of all, it was a quick read, so able to be easily read and digested by someone with a busy life. Second of all, she gives you a lot of great tips without trying to box you into making your co-op look exactly like every other co-op. She encourages you to think about what kind of co-op will work best for your family instead of thinking about how other co-ops run and gives you tips and suggestions to that end. Lastly, I love all the unit studies and co-op games and activities including at the end. They are fabulous and are already giving me ideas for my own family. They all sound really fun and educational. I think everyone could really find something of value in this book, whether you are a new or veteran homeschooler.
