We started Finishing Strong so those of us schooling tweens and teens at home would be able to connect with others who are too.
Each week we get glimpses into various home schools as families share what works (or doesn’t) for them. Personally, it’s helped me to see that I’m not alone on this journey.
This month, we’re focused on reading historical fiction novels in our home school. It’s one of my oldest daughter’s favorite genres, so I’m always on the look out for some great titles to share with her.
Do you have a student who isn’t exactly a history buff? Consider adding a some of these books to your history lesson plans. She’ll be amazed at how engaging historical fiction novels can be.
If you haven’t been following us on our Middle School Reading Adventure, there’s still time. Just jump right in. We’d love to have you join us!
We had some great articles shared with us last week. Here are four that I loved.
1. How I Prepare for a Middle School Homeschool Week by Year Round Homeschooling
As homeschool moms, we’re very familiar with the routine of weekly planning. Once kids start middle school, the planning doesn’t end, even though they are more independent. It just changes.
2. When Your Plan for High School Science Isn’t Working by Our Journey Westward
We’ve all been there. We have a plan, buy the curriculum, and then it doesn’t work for our child. But what if they’re in high school? Is there time to start over or do we have to push forward through the pain? Cindy does a great job sharing her recent experience and the curriculum she found and fell in love with.
3. Is College As Important As We Make It Out to Be? by There’s No Place Like Home
This has been a question my husband and I have been talking about for quite some time. In the workforce, he’s seen that college degrees rarely make you stand out any more, even if it’s a master’s degree. It’s funny that as homeschoolers, we’re comfortable questioning the value and validity of government schools for our school aged children, but rarely ask the same questions about college.
4. 25 Easy Ways to Incorporate Writing in All Subjects by Embark on the Journey
Although my kids don’t hate writing, it’s not always their favorite thing to do in school. I want to add some more writing into their lessons, especially now that they’re older. The only way they’re going to improve their writing is to write frequently. I’m going to use some of Tara’s ideas to add writing into subjects other than language arts.
