Finishing Strong – Homeschooling Middle & High School #98

I LOVE homeschooling middle and high school!

I know many homeschooling families fear teaching their older kids at home, but personally, for me, it’s been incredibly fun. Sure, it comes with its own unique challenges, and that’s why we’re here every Wednesday. To give everyone the support they need to finish their homeschooling journey strong.

Every week we host it along with Blog She Wrote, EvaVarga, and Starts at Eight.


This month one of our favorite events kicked off here in Central Florida – the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot. Our family attends frequently from September to November and I always try to make it educational as well as fun.

There are a ton of things older kids can learn when visiting the festival, as well after you get home, like cooking skills, math, decision making, and more.

1. How To Teach High School Dissection by Annie & Everything

I love the insight Ann gives about course descriptions for the high school transcripts. I never considered the fact that the colleges my girls attend might not even require them. If they do, she gives some amazing examples of descriptions you can use for core subjects.

2. How To Teach High School Dissection by Our Journey Westward

This year, I’m teaching high school biology in our co-op and I love it. I know I’m lucky that my daughter has a class structure to work on the experiments, including dissections.

But if you don’t have access to something like this, Cindy tells you everything you’ll need to help your teen work through the dissection portion of high school biology.

3. An Open Letter to the New Homeschooler I Met Today by There’s No Place Like Home

We’ve all been new homeschoolers, but it isn’t always easy for us to remember how overwhelming it was. I definitely agree with Shelly that the local public school isn’t the place to get started.

4. Alternate Forms of Evaluation: Revealing What You Know (Written & Oral Narration) by Classes by Beth

I’ve always wanted to add narration into our lesson plans, but never quite got it to work. There are many benefits to narration, so I think it’s time to look at it again.

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.
