We did it!!!!

7th GRADER - Tiger Lilly's week
She and I had to re-adjust her hectic schedule. We started studying for her English CLEP test she wants to take with her older siblings in the Spring.
We added the following to her English program as she plans to take the English related CLEPs
Abeka DVD (still main curriculum) (30 min)
SOS English Lit (20 min)
SOS American Lit (do after English Lit) (20 min)
Education-Portal.com (Analyzing Literature and English Composition) (20 min)
Analytical Grammar (takes 10 min)
Sequential Spelling (takes 10 min)
Speed Reading (takes 10 min)
To accommodate this we condensed the following to 1 or 2 days a week
Youth Digital (Game Design 2 - she finished Game Design 1)
CLEP test she's planning on taking next Summer: she picked these because she loves writing, reading, English and her siblings are studying for them.
4th Grade - Speed Racer's
We expanded his Spanish
Increased use of Xtramath.com
Started Art Co-op
REPORT CARDS coming next week
I'll be spending my weekend doing up their report cards and I'll be meeting with them about their grades and asking them how I can help them improve.
I want to use the report card as a communication tool between my kids and I. They get to tell mommy what they need and mommy listens.
It may cause schedule and subject adjustments but that's okay.
SCHOOL BREAK coming up!
Next week we leave for Disney and there will be no school for myself and my young ones. My Hubba and older kids will be at home and it's just the 3 of us, with a drop in from Hubba coming to visit.
DO YOU DO REPORT CARDS?
