Announcing the “A-Plus: Middle School Extras” eBook


Are you looking for A-Plus: Middle School Extras? This former ebook is no longer available … but here’s the good news:

After receiving feedback from a lot of people who paged through the resource this past year and let me know what worked and what didn’t, what they used and what they didn’t, I decided to reconfigure and separate out some of the most popular content so that you could choose what would be most useful to you and not worry about the rest.

I will be reintroducing the materials — some for free (yay!), and some for a small fee (only if I think my time and effort will save some of yours).

First up: A Half-Dozen (of course!) Homeschooling Helps for … Literature. This page includes my six favorite resources for exploring middle school books with your students — including vocabulary bookmarks for Newbery novels assigned in Classical ConversationsChallenge A and Challenge B programs.

Also available: A Half-Dozen Homeschooling Helps for … Latin, where you’ll find ideas for helping your students set up a Latin binder and make flash cards — plus access to my ebook, LATIN EXTRAS, which includes supplemental answers not published in the Henle Latin First Year Answer Key.

And check out: A Half-Dozen Homeschooling Helps for … Geography, which includes terrific tools for drawing and learning your way around the world — including access to my ebook, GEO EXTRAS, which contains Mercator projection maps and grids for drawing.

Coming soon: helps for science, speech and debate, study skills, and more.

Thanks for staying tuned!
