When I applied last year, I wasn't confident I would make the cut. I had applied once in the past and wasn't selected so I almost didn't reapply. I'm so glad I did! Not only was I accepted but I've loved being a part of the Crew.
This year the TOS Crew got the opportunity to review loads of homeschool curriculum products, some books, and even some fancy all natural beauty products. The review calendar runs from about January through mid-November. When you are selected to receive a product, you get several weeks to really use that product before sharing your opinion.
I loved so many of the products I reviewed this year but our favorites were Spelling You See, IEW, and Homeschool Planet. Homeschool Planet is one that I wasn't sure I even wanted to review and I ended up loving it! My kids really enjoyed trying so many new things and getting to change up our school time on a regular basis.
The Crew gets access to a wonderful forum where we get pertinent information and have a place to share and talk. It's been great seeing the support that everyone gives one another. The Crew leadership has been fantastic and even though the guard is changing I know we will be in good hands for next year.
So if you homeschool your kids and you have a blog, take a few minutes to fill out the application. There's nothing to lose but a year full of fun reviews to gain!
