The Purpose of Middle School

The Purpose of Middle School

 

Purpose for Students

Middle school is the pause between elementary school and high school. Children learn at different rates –not just homeschoolers, ALL kids! The pause, middle school, gives slow or reluctant learners time to catch up before high school. At the same time, it gives quick and academically capable children a chance to continue learning at their level. Do you find yourself becoming stressed out over middle school? Read my article, Taming Middle School Anxiety. It's sure to help you and your student calm any anxiety this stage of life brings.

Summer Fun with Camp

Summer Fun with Camp
I saw an article in the newspaper about a spectacular summer camp for computer-loving techie kids.



Summer camps have long been part of the American experience for children and teenagers, and for the last 30 years or so, computers and technology have added to the equation. "What we're trying to do is to take a child's hobby and show how to turn it into a potential career," Safran said. "This summer, Karen Katzenberger, 13, of Fall City, plans to take her love of drawing to a new level at DigiPen ProjectFUN with a 3-D animation workshop."

Read the Seattle Times Article

Learning 3-D animation?  Getting experience at DigiPen?  What an amazing opportunity!

Most summer camps can fill up early, so now is the best time to start looking for something if your child is interested.  It would be impossible for me to list summer camps here, because families have different criteria, and children have different interested. I could point you to some great summer camps for chess in the Seattle Area (Chess4Life.com) but I don't think that will be a good fit for every student!  Instead, a quick google search will help  you find the information you need!  Now is the time to seek a summer camp if you are interested.



I've recently been connecting with homeschooling businesses on LinkedIn.  I invite you to send me an invitation if you want to connect with my business.

New Resource for Homeschool Middle School

New Resource for Homeschool Middle School
Homeschool Middle School, junior high, 7th and 8th grade.  What to do, what to do?

My husband recently created a category on my blog JUST for parents of middle school students!  You can read all the blog posts in my middle school category.


You're reading my blog, so you obviously know how to find it online.  But did you know you can search my blog for answers?  There is a search box toward the top of my blog, so you can look up "grades" or "Senior year" and get the information you need.  There are categories listed on the right hand side, far down the page.  That way you can look at the series of blog posts that may be related to that category.  It's a great way to learn about foreign language ideas, for example.

If you would like more support, and you enjoy my blog, you may want it delivered to your email inbox every day.  You can subscribe by email or by RSS Reader.

Subscribe via e-mail.
Subscribe via reader.

It's hard for me to find the perfect amount of emails to send to stressed homeschool parents.  Sometimes they want more, MORE, MORE homeschool information.  Sometimes even my once-a-month  newsletter is almost more than they can bear.  If you need just a little bit of encouragement, grab my free monthly homeschool  newsletter.  If you want a bit more, subscribe to my homeschool mini-course and get weekly tips.  If you really want some daily help, subscribe to my blog and become a Facebook friend, where I post my blog entries.  And if you have a question, you can search the blog.  If you are in need of some serious homeschool middle school and high school help, then definitely check out my Gold Care Club.  It is like a 24x7 homeschool high school support group!
