Our favorite posts from last week:
Eva from Eva Varga enjoyed reading Methods of Homeschooling High School – Is There A Right One? from Sweetness and Light.
She shared, “A friend of mine has made the decision to begin homeschooling this fall. Her daughter will be entering middle school and my daughter is approaching high school. I loved this post from Meredith; it provided a clear and insightful summary of homeschooling styles and how each is applied in the high school years.
Though we have been homeschooling since the beginning, we have always been quite eclectic in our approach. Meredith’s posts helped to clarify how we might strengthen some strategies to better suit the learning styles of my children.”
Her other favorite post was High School Skills: Analyzing Text from Blog, She Wrote.
Sharla does a great job detailing specific, yet simple tips every parent should think about before it’s time to teach your teen how to drive. Even if you’re a couple of years away from this milestone, most likely it’s something you are thinking about and worrying over.
Megan said, “I understand her fear of letting go and trusting them on the road with other drivers. The only thing I can do to lessen my anxiety is to make sure they are as prepared as possible.”
She also loved Algebra Help for the Hopeless Homeschooler from Our Journey Westward.
Who hasn’t heard, “I’ll never use this when I grow up, what a waste of time!” over the years?
Megan said, “I think Real World Algebra, the resource Cindy shared, looks great! I try hard to make our lessons practical and I really like the idea of showing my children how math, specifically algebra, has real life application. Plus, the epitaph made me giggle!”
