Homeschooling: The Middle Years offers resources and advice for guiding children through the later elementary years. Author Shari Henry emphasizes the importance of a well-rounded education, providing great detail on standard curriculum subjects like math, language arts, and social studies, as well as coverage of additional subject areas like theater, music, and foreign languages (sign language in particular). Each subject is accompanied by practical tips on incorporating learning into life by using interdisciplinary study techniques--learning math and communication skills through starting a business like babysitting or learning the history of the United States by writing stories, drawing maps, and interviewing senior citizens. Lists of popular books and teaching materials help narrow the focus of the huge directories found elsewhere. Parents will find encouragement as well--reminders that homeschooling is worth the extra struggle, along with a chapter devoted to the most common difficulties facing parents (financial problems, age differences in your children, or special physical or intellectual demands) and how to surmount such difficulties. --Jill Lightner [via]
