Finishing Strong ~ Homeschooling the Middle & High School Years #129

Finishing Strong is a place for families who are homeschooling middle & high school kids to meet up in order to share tips, encouragement, advice, and more. We know it can be stressful homeschooling teens, which is why we’ve built this community!

Welcome back to Finishing Strong. We are glad you’re joining us!

WE ARE BACK! Hopefully you have all had a wonderful fun filled summer! Our summer is still going on as we won’t start back into formal schooling until after Labor Day. However I am in FULL PLANNING MODE!

I have a few exciting things to share with you before we get to the hop!

First up is my Middle School Homeschool Curriculum Giveaway that is going on now, through Monday the 14th at 11:59 EST. Be sure to stop over and enter to win some awesome stuff!

This Middle School Homeschool Curriculum Basket includes goodies from Home School in the Woods, Alisha at Masterpiece Society, and more!

I am proud to say that we have used (are using) each and every one of the items in this basket (well, not these specific copies because the ones in this basket are brand new!). In this Middle School Homeschool Curriculum Basket Giveaway I have included science, history, and art! {But if you check out my Timeline Based Middle School History: A Two Year Plan you will see that you can easily include reading/writing along with it!)

Next up! Be sure to stop in and check out my USED (Like New) HOMESCHOOL CURRICULUM SALE You will find things like Teaching Textbooks, Bright Ideas Press History, Coding Courses from Homeschool Programming, Saxon Math, Singapore Math, Shurley English and more!

Welcome to my Used (Like New) Homeschool Curriculum Sale. After 11 years it is time to clear out some of our curriculum. Many of these are like new, never written in. The sale will be going on all summer (or until everything is sold)! Be sure to check back in as I will be adding more as I unearth more from the many bins I have been saving!

And last but not least! I have also just created Checklist Style Weekly Assignment Printable Student Planners! I needed something simple for my 9th grade son who is my “Just Wants to Get it Done” kid so I decided to create something that would work easily for me to guide him, and for him to keep up with! Hop over and check out the three variations I created – Rainbow, Heart, and Gamer!

Weekly Assignments Printable Student Planners {Checklist Style} - 3 versions for one low cost!
