Homeschooling Middle School

If you’ve been following our homeschooling life, you know we’ve been homeschooling since our oldest kiddo was preschool age. It’s hard to believe that now we’re homeschooling middle school!

Not sure what resources to buy? Not sure how to get organized? Not sure how to homeschool multiple kids? This book will answer your questions and more!

If you have preschool-age kids in your house, you might enjoy exploring what the preschool years have looked like in our homeschool.

In my experience so far, homeschooling a middle-school age student is in many ways different than homeschooling a preschool or elementary-age child.

1. Help them get organized.

A planner could be a great tool to help teach them important organizational and time-management skills.

This one may surprise you! It may even make you feel a bit uncomfortable – especially if you haven’t been consistent in reading aloud with them in recent years.

2. Continue to read aloud with them.

3. Teach them how to recognize important info.

Take every opportunity to teach your child how to spot important information! This is key to strengthening those study skills.

As your child gets older, you may notice their interest in a specific topic or subject area deepening.

4. Provide opportunities for interest-led learning. Let them explore new things!

5. Remember, your child is going through physical and emotional changes.

This is a good opportunity to help your child learn how to manage and deal with their emotions, new stress levels they may be experiencing, etc.
