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.
Is your teen starting to think about taking the ACT? Luckily, there are some quality tools available that can help homeschoolers be successful on this standardized tests.
The best part is that with ACT Strategy Smart, teens only have to use one book over the course of 4-5 weeks to see an improvement. All of the material is relevant and categorized, making it very easy to use.
I know in high school it’s important to focus on book learning, but don’t miss the opportunity to teach your teens the life skills they’ll need when they’re out on their own.
Did you get a chance to read these last week?
1. Yes! We DO Intend to Homeschool High School by Eva Varga
As Abigail gets closer to high school, the number of times I’m asked whether I’ll be sending her to high school continues to rise. My answer is the same as Eva’s – yes, we’re homeschooling all the way through. How about you? Will you be finishing strong along with us?
2. Homeschool Foreign Language by Royal Little Lambs
The foreign language requirement is one that can scare quite a few families, especially if neither mom or dad are proficient in another language. I appreciated the many options Jennifer lists that we can use at home.
3. The United States Court System: A Unit Study – by Starts at Eight
With this being an election year, it’s the perfect time to add some government studies into your lesson plans. This first part of a two part unit study will give your kids a working knowledge of our court system.
4. Paradox: Save on your teen’s art supplies by buying higher quality by Inspire My Artist
Homeschooling an artistic teen is not easy, nor is it cheap. But I learned long ago to stop trying to save money by buying less expensive supplies. Yes, it hurts my budget at first, but like this post outlines, in the long run I save time and money.
