Homeschool Review Crew Favorites for 2016

Meet the Homeschool Review Crew Curriculum Favourites for 2016

Each year in November, the Review Crew year ends and we have an opportunity to vote on our favorite products for the year.  The winners are awarded with a Blue Ribbon Award.  I completed 40 reviews this year out of the 75 total reviews The Crew completed. Since I joined the Crew in 2010 I have completed over 300 reviews for the Homeschool Review Crew!  You can find all of my reviews under my TOS Product Review tag in my sidebar.  I have been incredibly blessed to be a part of the Homeschool Review Crew and look forward to next year. 

Some of the categories had several products we liked and were hard to choose.  There were a few categories I did not vote in because we did not review products in those categories.  I was happy to see some of our favorites were Blue Ribbon Award winners.
