Hopefully you’ve been learning as much as we have from the amazing posts being shared!
Here are our favorites from last week:
Heather from Blog She Wrote loved fellow co-host Heidi’s post on Preparing your High School Student for the PSAT.
She said, “Heidi does a thorough job of preparing parents for the world of college testing. As a homeschooling parent of a 10th grader this year, we’ve already gone through one testing period and we are gearing up for another round. I appreciate the information on the breakdown of the tests as well as the timeline and prep tips.”
Heather also suggests checking with your local school system on the PSAT before getting too far. Her school system does not allow 10th graders to take the exam, so it’s best to make sure in May that a test will be set aside for them in the fall. Many schools order the tests in May.
Also, remember that the PSAT is taken during normal school hours while the SAT and ACT are take on weekends.
She also enjoyed Homeschooling High School – A Plethora of Resources from Sweetness and Light
Heather loved the way Meredith pulled together many resources for high schooling parents. There are some faith oriented items, along with online partners to help you with high school.
“I enjoy reading about all the ways parents can offer up a unique high school experience for their teens. Thanks for the list!” says Heather.

Tina from Tina’s Dynamic Homeschool Plus loved To Sow A Seed from Roots and Wings.
Tina said, “As I reflected on graduating my first son last year, the words written in To Sow a Seed, echoed how true it is that as parents, we face a daunting task in raising our teens.”
“Gaining independence is a gradual process and the time comes soon enough for our teens to take charge of their life. Roots and wings matter.”
