Finishing Strong – Homeschooling Middle & High School #122

Welcome to Finishing Strong, the place where families share their experiences homeschooling middle & high school students. Every week we get to read creative ideas, helpful insights, and words of encouragement. It’s nice to have a community to belong to as we school our older children at home.

I host it along with my friends – Blog She Wrote – Heather, EvaVarga – Eva, and Starts at Eight – Heidi.

4. 3 Reasons Why I Don’t Give Grades or Tests in Our Homeschool by There’s No Place Like Home

Do you give grades or tests in your homeschool? I don’t. I never wanted to add unnecessary stress onto my children’s shoulders and because I was with them every day, I knew when they understood a lesson and when they didn’t. Tests just didn’t seem necessary. And grades? To me, that’s just too much work! Luckily, I live in a state where they’re not required.
