Finishing Strong: Full STEAM Ahead - My favorite STEAM posts

September 14, 2016

Welcome to Finishing Strong ~ a weekly link-up dedicated to families homeschooling middle & high school kids. Each Wednesday, moms just like you share their best tips, encouragement, advice, and more for teaching older kids at home.

Finishing-Strong-500x500I am delighted that families homeschooling middle and high school age students are coming together and finding inspiration in one another. That’s has been the goal of Finishing Strong since its inception. Thank you!!

Finishing Strong is hosted by me here at EvaVarga along with my friends – Heather from Blog She Wrote, Megan and Susan from Education Possible, and Heidi from Starts at Eight.

I recently discovered a innovative card game designed specifically for young people to learn about Women in Science. My daughter and I love it!

The Evolution of STEM to STEAM @EvaVarga.netI would also like to encourage you to check out The Evolution of STEM to STEAM: A Book Review & Activity Resources that I posted just a short time ago. This new book is fun – the perfect gift for the young STEAM minded child in your life.

Without further ado, let’s take some time to check out the wonderful posts shared last week. What were your favorites? Share your thoughts and impressions in the comments.

Finishing Strong: Full STEAM Ahead

The post with the most clicks this past week was How to Prepare for a Middle School Homeschool Week from Misty at Year Round Homeschooling.

My favorite posts this last week include Cindy’s When the Plan for High School Science Isn’t Working shared at Our Journey Westward. It’s a great reminder to not give up when your curriculum choices are proving to not work for you or for your child.

Another is Janelle’s How to Start a High School Literature Discussion Group shared at Bright Ideas Press. My kids loved the book club and writing workshop I coordinated in the past. It’s time I look into starting another.

I have shared this before, but I just love Heather’s nature study calendar posts. Her latest, September 2016 Nature Journal Calendar, at Blog She Wrote includes many wonderful ideas for exploring the outdoors with your kids – regardless of their age.
