Jewish Homeschool Blog Carnival

image

Why can’t we have our own carnival??? Let’s do it! A regular, monthly Jewish homeschool blog carnival… why not???

Here are links to all current and past Jewish Homeschool Blog Carnivals so you can see what we’re all about:

What is this blog carnival for? UPDATED November 8!

A blog carnival lists blog posts of interest to like-minded folks. Not just a list of blogs, it singles out those posts which are remarkable, special, interesting. So I want to hear from you - your best posts ever; your best RECENT posts; the stuff you're most proud of:

  • Did you have one amazing perfect day with your homeschooler?
  • Or maybe you had a terrible, frustrating day - and want to vent?
  • Did you find a new way to teach a Jewish (or secular) concept?
  • Did you have a great back-to-homeschool picnic with other kids in your area?
  • Are you a seasoned homeschooler posting tips or advice for others?
  • Do you have printables that you want to share with other homeschoolers? (pretty please...)

If you have blogged about any of the above - or something even more wonderful than I could possibly dream, please submit it here or leave a note in the comments section, below.

I have opened up the concept a little to include all Jewish learning-at-home type blogs and related blog posts. Every child is homeschooled, at least a little, right??? If you have a blog OR if you read a Jewish kids-n-learning blog which inspires you, please submit it here - I would love to include it in my roundup.

Can you explain how a carnival works? I've sometimes wondered about it, but never asked! :)

It's just one of these great big circular backscratching things the internet is so good for. You pick a couple of posts from your blog that showcase the theme ("Jewish homeschooling"), and after the submission deadline the blog host - who either varies from edition to edition or stays the same - collates them all into one big "carnival" post, along with some inspired link suggestions of her own and publishes it all as one big list.

Here's an example of Haveil Havalim, probably the best-known and longest-running Jewish blog carnival. That one is weekly; I want to do it monthly.

Oh, very cool! So, what would be interesting or awesome to have blogged about to include in the carnival? I haven't done much 'real' blogging so far, just linking mostly. Is there a more specific theme?

I'm going to post this to the lists I frequent, and my blog as well.

Do blog carnivals have buttons that people included can put on their blogs?

I am pretty new to homeschooling and including Judaism in it. I plan on posting a lot about it soon. Would love to go ahead and include my blog. :) http://www.asinglegypsy.blogspot.com

No buttons, sorry! I guess the host generally notifies the people whose blog is listed in one...
In the case of Havel Havalim, most people on it read it so they just know they're on there. Very cozy arrangement.
I dunno - you know me: I'll try anything a couple of times to see if it works... :-)

I'd love to participate. I don't focus on the Judaism aspect on the blog very much but there ya go!

I have updated the details and instructions for this carnival, so if you're interested, please check back and submit any posts you think are worthy!
