Finishing Strong – Homeschooling Middle & High School #72

We’re Back!

I definitely enjoyed our holiday break, but I must confess that I’ve missed you and all of the great ideas you share.

If you’re new here, welcome. Finishing Strong is a weekly link-up dedicated to families homeschooling middle & high school kids. Each Wednesday, moms just like you share their best tips, encouragement, advice, and more for teaching older kids at home.

It is hosted by us here at Education Possible, along with our friends – Heather from Blog She Wrote, Eva from EvaVarga, and Heidi from Starts at Eight.

I would love it if you would take some time to check out the wonderful posts shared below. I know you will find them inspiring!

Thank you for helping us to make Finishing Strong a key resource for families who are homeschooling through the middle & high school years.


Have you seen the awesome 2016 Reading Adventure we’ve put together for middle schoolers this year? We’ve come up with twelve different types of books we think tweens and teens will enjoy reading. The bonus? They’ll be expanding their reading horizons at the same time.

Each month we’ll be choosing one genre to highlight as well as sharing some of the book titles we’re reading in our homes.

The 2016 Reading Adventure for Middle Schoolers - FREE Printable To take advantage of this new year, Susan and I want you and your middle school students to join us on a great reading adventure. Every month, let your tween/teen choose one of the 12 different types of books, then work together find an appropriate title for them to read. Every month we'll be sharing our book selections and our subscribers will cool tools to go along with the reading challenge.


For January, we chose the personal growth genre and shared five pretty impressive books we found.

5 Personal Growth Books Appropriate for Tweens & Teens To start off the 2016 Reading Adventure, I've decided to start off with personal growth. As adults, we’re very familiar with the personal growth/personal improvement genre, but we don’t always think about it for our kids. But they’re trying to figure out who they are and where they fit in too. It’s important that we constantly inspire and encourage our middle school kids during their journey.

Also, all of our friends who join us on our Reading Adventure get lots of goodies to help them in their own home school. Are you and your middle schooler coming along on the adventure this year?

We had some great things shared here at the end of last year. In case you missed them, here are four of my favorites.

I love homeschooling! Learning is a way of life for our family. Most days you will find us exploring our Central Florida community, having fun while learning. I am constantly looking for new and interactive ways to engage my older children.
