Welcome to Finishing Strong. We’re glad you’re here. We are a link up that focuses entirely on teaching middle & high school students.
There were some fun and practical ideas shared last week. Hopefully you were able to take time out of your busy homeschooling day to read them. We always find new ideas and plenty of encouragement for schooling our older kids at home through the stories you share with us.

I am a huge fan of notebooking and I often use this technique in place of tests in certain subjects to gauge how much material my kids master. One tool that makes it super easy for me is Notebooking Pages.
Right now, they’re having a huge 3 day sale, so if you’ve been wanting to get a membership, but didn’t have the money to spend, now is the time to grab one!
Popular Posts From Last Week
When my kids were younger, there were many days when I beat myself up over the fact that we didn’t get around to all of the subjects we were studying. Now I know better, but I know there are moms out there upset that they didn’t get through their whole lesson plan. That’s why I’m thrilled that one of the great tips shared in this post is to realize that not every subject has to be studied every day.
2. The Ultimate Guide to Creating an Unschooling High School Transcript by Unschool Rules
There are many guides out there to help you build a high school transcript, but the majority of them assume you’re using standard curriculum in your home school. But what if you’re an unschooler? Here’s an awesome guide, just for you! Joan does an AMAZING job of sharing what you should include in your transcript, what you should leave out, how to figure out what a credit looks like for an unschooler, plus she shares everything her daughter did to earn all of her high school credits.
I am a firm believer in tailoring as much of your child’s homeschooling experience as you can, however, it’s possible to go too far in tying your lesson plans to your student’s interest.
4. Teaching While Driving by Our Unschooling Journey
We are one of those homeschooling families who spend an incredible amount of time in the car, driving from one activity to another. Over the years, my kids have figured out what kind of “educational” things they are able to do in the car, and which ones just don’t work for them. I love the idea of filling some of that travel time with learning, instead of letting it go to waste. If you’re not sure where to start, here are some simple suggestions.
