Our Favorites and the Review Crew's Blue Ribbon Award Winners

Wow, DONE! 20 reviews completed for the 2015 Schoolhouse Review Crew Year!  As I get ready to move on to my new position as Product Manager with the Crew, it has been fun to look back at all we have reviewed and pick our favorites for the year.

The task was actually not as easy as I thought, as more than several things we were blessed to review ended up replacing our current curriculum and became a part of our daily life, not just used for the review period.

After much deliberation, here are our favorites-

Colby's- The Fun Spanish- This is kind of funny to me.  Yes, we really liked this program, but it is one that the more we use the more he likes it.  It is now what he wants to do first thing in the morning because it is truly fun!

Salem's-  Heirloom Productions- With Lee in Virginia Audio Drama.  No surprise here.  This boy loves audio drama and these are great quality.

Mine- (yes, I am allowed more than one, I am the mom!) IEW.  Simply the best writing program out there in my opinion.  We do not start it as early as many people do, but I believe a few years of this writing program will make a huge difference in your teen's life!

UnLock Math- This is one of those "I did not know I needed it products," but it turned out to be a God-send. We have a math product we have used for high school and been perfectly happy with but this just clicked for us, provided the customer support we needed at times, and my son, on his own, chose to stay with it after the review period.  That says a lot- trust me!

There were so many amazing programs this year, many of which we did not review but others did. Once again our family was blessed by the Crew and the opportunity to have these products in our home and incorporate them into our homeschool and lives.

Each year at the end of the year the Review Crew votes on their favorites- it is one of our favorite parts of the year and I pray blesses the amazing vendors we serve.
