  1. Love the video Amy!
    Thank you so much for sharing.
    I am hoping and praying you will have an 8th grade book on amazon this year.
    Will you be selling one?
    I have 3 children all going into 8th. This is our 7th year of homeschooling and I only found you last year. I am so grateful for the free resources you have put together. Thank you again!

    • Your so welcome Marie. I really was hoping to have an 8th grade finished before the school year but I don’t think it is going to happen. I am actually going to have my 7th grader try and do two grades this year, so he will start the year off and then as he finishes, I hope to start him on 8th before the school year ends. That means I am going to being working on it but it won’t be finished for months. If you are really stuck and don’t have any other options, I would look at They have lots of free online courses that you may be able to do. Have you downloaded and looked at the 7th grade course and what it covers? Under homeschooling resources section, scroll down to the answer key PDF’s and get the 7th grade. You may find that it will work for your children. I know the standardized test is the same for grades 7-8. So I would agree that grades 7 and 8 are pretty similar. Just my two cents;) You have to do what is good for your family and yours alone. I apologize as I had originally wanted to have that grade level together, but it just didn’t happen. Thanks again for being here. Have a great day!

  2. Question! You have links to reading comprehension questions on your blog…but you say in the video you don’t share it. Do you do more than. What is posted for the different reading comprehension programs for the grades? First time homeschooling and trying to make sure I’m doing enough while not overkill! Thank you so much!

    • Your so great for asking! I do the reading comprehension that I post on my blog with the questions for each of the books. In two grades….grade 4 and grade 7 I have a separate reading comprehension course that I printed off the internet. It just gives more reading and questions. Having a lot of children, I don’t want some to come under the radar in their reading and knowledge of what they had read. If you are able to make sure that they understand and can answer the questions on the print offs that I offer, I wouldn’t worry about it. If they miss a question…..the reading passages are shorter and I am able to go back quickly and scan to find the answer. I also show them how I scan to find the answer. This I hope will go into their more in depth reading. I just don’t have time to search out the answers in a chapter book if they don’t know how the answer key got that. Does that make sense? It is out of time wise not having a lot of time to devote to answering questions. So as they begin to get reading done well, I start in 4th and then before they enter high school just to make sure they are understanding the passages. You are going to do great! Don’t do overkill. My advice start little and add more as you can. Trust me it was the greatest advice I had ever gotten. You can always catch up in the following years. You can! Good luck!

  3. Hi Amy! I’m curious… You mention in the video that you’re doing science with your children this year, but you did not go into any detail about how you’re covering science. Can you do a blog post soon about how you’re covering science with your children this school year? I always enjoy hearing and reading about your homeschool. If that’s not possible, perhaps you can just tell me a little about what you’re doing this year. Thanks and blessings to you and yours!

    • Yes, I will do that this week….we had a busy week last week and our power was out towards the end of the week. I will do something to show what we do.Thanks for the idea!!!

  4. Great! Looking forward to it! : )
