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.
New this week, 3 Reasons to Make Hand Bound Books. Have you ever wanted to bind a book nicely with your student’s work or create your own journals? These reasons will want to make you try it!
We hope you’ll take some time to check out the amazing posts that have been shared with us. We are so thankful to all of our readers and contributors who help make Finishing Strong a key resource for everyone homeschooling through the middle & high school years.
Below are some of the posts I enjoyed last week, as well as the one that received the most clicks (in the #1 spot). Did I choose one of your favorites?
