Overview

From the ages of eight to twelve, children go though many changes—emotionally, intellectually, and physically. They begin to develop innate talents that will carry them though a lifetime of learning. Too often, these natural behavior traits are squelched in traditional schools. That's why more and more parents just like you are choosing to teach their eight- to twelve-year-old children at home. Inside, respected homeschooling speaker and writer Shari Henry shows you how homeschooling can work for you and your child. You'll discover how to:

Create a world of ideas for easy science experiments, math drills, field trips, and craft activities
Make history and geography come alive by using community resources
Direct your child to independent projects, such as planning and planting a garden, making a kite, and creating a family meal
And much more!
