It is that time of year again! The time the Schoolhouse Review Crew team members get to vote on their favorite products, resources, and curriculum from the 2015 Crew Year.  We had some amazing vendors this year! I’ll be sharing both the official winner and if I had a different choice, I’ll share that too! I’m only including some of the winners in my post. You can visit the Schoolhouse Review Crew to see the full list of winners!

2015 Schoolhouse Review Crew Blue Ribbon Awards

Favorite Writing Curriculum: Institute for Excellence in Writing.  This is my favorite!  I love IEW.

Favorite Spelling Program: Institute for Excellence in Writing: Phonetic ZooWe did not review a spelling program this year but I have heard such excellent things about Phonetic Zoo!

Favorite Grammar Program: Institute for Excellence in Writing: Fix-It! GrammarThis was part of the Deluxe Combo that some reviewers received.  I reviewed Fix-It! Grammar last year.

Favorite Literature Curriculum: Progeny Press. This was the first year that the Crew reviewed Progeny Press and I didn’t!  I have reviewed Screwtape Letters along with Bow of Bronze and then I reviewed the Hobbit. Most recently I reviewed The Hunger Games along with The Courage of Sarah Noble.  Since I didn’t review it, I couldn’t vote for it.  I voted for Sharon Watson’s  Illuminating Literature: When Worlds Collide.

Favorite History Curriculum: Home School in the Woods. We did not review Amy Pak’s products in 2015 but we did in 2013. I reviewed Great Empires. For this crew year I voted for Homeschool Legacy.

Favorite Science Curriculum: Visual Learning Systems. This was Supergirl’s Favorite! She loves Digital Online Science!

Favorite Math Curriculum: CTC Math.

Favorite Math Supplement: SimplyFunWe did not review either game from SimplyFun. We voted for Super Teacher Worksheets as I had been using it as a supplement for Supergirl’s math studies.

Favorite Christian Education Curriculum: Grapevine Studies. This is a wonderful study!  Did you catch my review? It’s perfect for the advent season!

Favorite High School Product: Writing with Sharon WatsonWhen Worlds Collide was a product I didn’t know I needed! Definitely a favorite here in multiple categories!
