One of the unique privileges of homeschooling is being there for each step of your children's development. You help them gain the wide range of skills they'll need in life, like self-motivation and the ability to follow a schedule and complete assignments without constant supervision. 8th Grade capitalizes on those skills to transition kids to more independent learning. You may remain as involved as you like, but if your students are ready, they can follow the Instructor's Guide and direct their own daily studies. This gives you more time to focus on younger children or to read the great literature in your 8th grade homeschool curriculum!
