It is time for our 2022-2023 8th Grade homeschool curriculum picks!
This year continuing to focus on more independent work skills. As students get into 6th, 7th, and 8th grades I think it’s important for them to learn more independent study skills and schedule their own workloads into manageable sections. We started introducing more independent work over the last couple of years, she will continue on with that again this year.
We will be using Homeschool Planet to keep track of our records this year, they also have pre-made lesson plans that make my life easier too!
