Finishing Strong – Homeschooling Middle & High School #116

Finishing Strong is a place where those who are homeschooling middle school or high school come together every Wednesday. Bloggers share their posts about schooling their older kids at home and readers find community, encouragement, and practical tips.

We, along with our friends, Heather from Blog She Wrote, Eva from EvaVarga, and Heidi from Starts at Eight host it.

Keep reading to see what is shared this week.

1. The Amazing College Alternative You’ll Want to Know About by Annie & Everything – our most read post

It seems like Praxis has run a campaign with homeschool bloggers to get their name out there in our community considering the number of posts I saw about them this week. I for one am glad. See, Praxis has been on my radar for some time and in fact, it’s one of the main options we are considering for our children after graduation. We know for sure that our oldest won’t be going to a traditional 4 year college and we all love the practical and financial benefits students gain through a Praxis internship.

3. 130 Best “Would You Rather” Questions for Kids and the Whole Family by Homeschool Base

Back when I was a youth minister, I used to use these types of questions all the time with my kids. They’re a great way to start up a conversation with your teen.

4. Virtual Frog Dissection Resources by Starts at Eight

This year, I’m teaching high school biology in our co-op and the class has 4 dissections, including the frog. Not every student has access to a co-op setting and not all families want to do dissections in their home. With so many virtual options, no biology student has to miss out on this great learning tool.

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.
