It’s Wednesday, which means it’s a new link up day here at Finishing Strong. This is where you will find tons of support and ideas that will help you homeschool middle and high school.
Personally, I love Wednesdays. I am always blown away by the practical tips and heartfelt stories that bloggers share each week. By reading them, I’ve gained confidence that has made me comfortable homeschooling my older kids, discovered new ways to teach old subjects, and gotten glimpses into the lives of so many families.
Hopefully you’ll discover something new by reading the posts shared below. And if you’re a blogger, please share your posts about homeschooling middle school and high school using the widget at the bottom of this page.

This week I continued outlining our curriculum plans for the year, focusing on what my 10th grader will be using. With dual enrollment on the horizon, her sophomore year looks different than what we both thought it would, but she still has plenty of work to complete.
One priority for her is to prepare for the PERT test. To do that, she’ll be working hard on math and language arts, as well as going through a helpful study guide.
Everyone loves to see what curriculum other homeschoolers are using to teach their kids, so it’s not surprising that two of the most read posts last week were all about middle school curriculum choices.
- 8th Grade Homeschool Curriculum Choices from me
- 7th Grade Homeschool Curriculum 2017-2018 from Freely Learned
Two others that I enjoyed reading were:

I have always struggled getting my girls to do their best work when self-editing their papers and often it seems like more work than it’s worth. But, as Kim points out, it’s their responsibility, so it’s important that I challenge and encourage them to do their best, especially when it comes to obvious mistakes.
