We keep this page loaded with posts that explore ideas and issues, suggest booklists, and spark discussions about homeschooling, unschooling, and home learning. This tab can be a great resource for parents and caregivers who are suddenly homeschooling their children because of the Covid-19 pandemic or for families that were already on a homeschool path. We hope these resources will be fun, interesting opportunities for exploring writing and reading with your middle-grade readers.
We will update regularly, so feel free to visit often!
