Finishing Strong – Homeschooling Middle & High School #81

Finishing Strong 500x500

I’m so glad you’re visiting our link-up. Finishing Strong is dedicated to families homeschooling middle & high school kids. Each Wednesday, moms just like you share their best tips, encouragement, advice, and more for teaching older kids at home.

It is hosted by us here at Education Possible, along with our friends – Heather from Blog She Wrote, Eva from EvaVarga, and Heidi from Starts at Eight.

I would love it if you would take some time to check out the wonderful posts shared below. I know you will find them inspiring!

Thank you for helping us to make Finishing Strong a key resource for families who are homeschooling through the middle & high school years.

During the middle school years, we need to prepare our students for their next big phase - high school. Help students make a successful transition by making sure they do these 5 things before 9th grade.

Are you homeschooling middle school? If so, you’ll want to see if you’re working on these five things with your students. If your kids aren’t already doing them, it’s time to get started.

Trust me, they’ll make your teen’s transition to high school much easier.

WriteShop is one place that I regularly turn to for these unique writing ideas. Here are some thought provoking questions that your teen can use to build an essay around.

4.3 Best ways to encourage an artistic teen by Inspire My Artist

As I’ve mentioned many times, I’m the mom of an artist. When you’re supporting an artist, rather than just doing art in your home school, you do things differently. I thought Crystal covered these points very well.

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.
