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!


"If you are thinking about homeschooling an eight- to twelve-year-old, you'll want this book for the resources alone! Shari Henry describes homeschooling as a journey of learning and uses the results of a survey to provide you with information on what other 'travelers' think and how their attitudes have changed since they started their adventure."—Billy and Nancy Greer, publishers of F.U.N News


"Clear, concise, and rich with resources. This book should be in the home of every family homeschooling though the middle years."—Rebecca L. Cook, South Carolina homeschooling support group founder


"Shari Henry is a veteran homeschool mom who has served faithfully in the trenches for many years. I heartily recommend her book."—Carole Joy Seid, educationalconsultant


"Excellent. Provides parents with everything they ever needed to know to homeschool their middle grade children."—Maureen McCaffrey, editor-in-chief of Homeschooling Today
