Favorite Homeschool Middle School Posts from Starts At Eight

It is no secret that I am homeschooling middle school (and elementary too!). From the moment I began the process of preparing to homeschool high school I have been writing and sharing about it. Then my second child entered middle school and I really started adding resources and information for middle school. 2016 has brought about some great information, insight, and resources for homeschooling middle school here at Starts At Eight. Last week I shared the most popular posts from 2016, now I would like to share some of my favorite homeschool middle school posts from 2016 here at Starts At Eight.
