High School Resources

     When we first started homeschooling I had so many questions. I knew the why, but almost everything else was to be learned. High school is another new adventure, but for this I feel a bit more prepared maybe because I've done more planning. The Schoolhouse Review Crew blog cruise this week is all about high school, and I thought you might enjoy some resources I have found helpful.

prayer- #1 on this list because it is the most important thing on this page.
Be anxious for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Philippians 4:6

Senior High: A Home-Designed Form+U+La by Barb Shelton was the first high school related book recommended to me by a friend and it changed the way I think about credits and combining school with life.

teachers- over the summer I spent several delightful hours with a new friend who happened to be a retired high school literature teacher. She shared many recommendations with me including some old favorites and others I'd never heard of before. I'll share later about some of her suggestions when I compile my rapidly taken notes into a reader friendly format. My Aunt is also a retired teacher and generously shares her time teaching my girls many sewing skills. Don't overlook the experience of friends who teach just because you choose to homeschool.

All of the TOS planners including the high school planner are included with my Schoolhouse Teacher membership. I'll be the first to admit I'm not the most organized person. For things that are important, though, like keeping track of high school credits I need a plan. My daughter and I both have downloaded their High School Planner.

Limits- You don't have to do everything yourself. If you are insecure in a subject or just want help presenting it a different way consider other options. Online classes and co-ops are just two possibilities. Don't be afraid to ask for help.

Homeschool group- A support group is such a huge blessing. Just to have the opportunity to discuss with others who are doing the same thing you are or have already been there seems simple but means so much. HSLDA is another resource and can help you find a local group. Online groups can be another resource.
