Ch-Cha-Changes ending our 1st Quarter
I've done it again! Made changes :-(
QUARTER ENDED after 45 days of homeschool.
It's been a great two weeks since my last WEEKLY CHECKUP.
WHY DID I DO IT?
Because I could, lol! That's the great thing about homeschooling. If it doesn't work for your kid, you can change the program to meet their needs.
If you have put 45 days into a program and your child is still not challenged, you've got a problem. Evaluate if the child is learning, if the product fits their learning style and if the teacher (you) can manage it.
WHAT I CHANGED AND WHY
I've tweaked the schedule 3 times and we are 46 days in O_o
Abeka Basic Math 7 after lesson 40 or so.
Time4Learning since we were only using it for math it seemed a bit overpriced for our budget for 2 kids
Jacobs Algebra 1 - took too much work for me to set up lesson plan
Abeka Bible for 7th grader
We added Algebra 1 (Abeka and Teaching Textbooks - yeah we do both).
Geometry (Thinkwell (extra practice only) & Teaching Textbooks) she is taking it again next year with Foersters
Art of the Argument (my daughter wants to add it to her schedule in the spring.)
Japanese (only 1 time a week, using the week to practice)
Customized Bible Curriculum to: True Images Devotional: 90 Daily Devotions for Teen Girls and The Power of a Praying® Teen
XtraMath.com practice for my 4th grader who seriously dislikes flashcards
I hope this is it...
HAVE YOU MADE CHANGES?
