Blue Ribbon Awards

As a member of the Schoolhouse Review Crew, I had the pleasure of casting my vote in their annual Blue Ribbon Awards. All members of the Crew are invited to share their favorite vendors of the year in a variety of categories, and then the votes are tallied and awards given to the vendors. Here are the winners of 2014 (links will take you to the Crew blog post for the product unless noted otherwise):

Favorite Writing Curriculum: WriteShop

Favorite Language Arts Curriculum: Moving Beyond the Page (my review here)

In the categories I felt comfortable voting in, most of my choices align with the winners. The only exception is that I chose Fix It! Grammar for my overall favorite (I just love an open-and-go curriculum!). The boys’ picks for Kids Choice didn’t win either. Seahawk and Small Fry picked Egglo Entertainment (my review here) and Munchkin picked (my review here).

With this post, the 2014 review season is over, but I’ve been invited back for 2015, so I’ll have some more reviews for you early next spring. I’ll still be blogging about our lives in the meantime, just no reviews for a while. 🙂
