Hello! I plan to take you with us on our journey through high school. We are only beginning 6th grade this year but knowing that you are available when 9th grade comes is a huge relief and I've told all our homeschool moms in our group about you. Since you've said that middle school is preparation for high school, I would love a planner for my daughter or myself that would get us in the mode of keeping track of the things we need to. Can you advise me on which company has the best or tell me what we should be keeping track of now that will help us later (and be great records.) THANK FOR ALL YOU DO AND GOD BLESS!!!
I pretty much do that as above and use various charts from websites and planners I've found to fill in the details - it saves me the time of formatting word documents . The children have their own books where their work is stored and I keep all their results for every test/lab report in my binder. I try to keep a diary of every day of school with just a few details of work covered. I've found this immensely useful when looking back at what is working and what is not working and for making report cards at the end of the year. My problem is finding good pieces of work to keep in my folder as examples. My oldest child tests very well but his quality of work is scant - always the shortest route from A to B with untidy handwriting to boot. He is just about to go into 9th grade so should I keep something from each year of High school for sending with my transcript to college or just choose the best from the entire four year period? Out state (WA) is light on record keeping but I like to have structured records for my own analysis and planning. (My younger son tests poorly but produces much better work!)
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.… Read More

Let's talk about real feelings. How do you feel when you think about homeschooling high school? Do any of these words sound familiar?
freaked out - terrified - hyperventilating - procrastinating - confused - stressed - overwhelmed - immobilized with fear - panicky - ready to run - obsessed - worried - lost hope.
Note taking skills can really help your children become successful in college and career. And, it's a pretty easy class to teach.
