It’s been a busy week here, full of schoolwork and church activities. Monday’s are the only day no one has to be at church. Seriously. Every other day one or all of us has to be at church at least for a couple of hours. Good thing we only live about 5 miles from church!
The kids are still progressing good with their work. I printed out planners for them from Schoolhouse Teachers.com They are awesome planners! They have several to choose from. We’re using the high school planner and the intermediate planner. This is the first year I don’t have some sort of central planner for everyone. All four of my students have their own planner. They help put them together, check to see what they need to do, write down what they did and keep track of their own work. I’m loving this! If I want to lesson plan or check their work, I get their individual planners. Surprisingly, they are all loving it, too. I thought I might have trouble with the 6th grader, but he took right to having his own. You can read my review of Schoolhouse Teachers.com. We still love it!
I really need to post about what we are using for 6th, 8th, 11th (who is almost ready for 12th) and 12th grades. Hopefully, I’ll get that typed up soon. I should just bring all their planners to the computer and start typing! lol
They all have some work on the computer now. We do have more than one computer, but all the school stuff is on the school laptop. Even though they are using a few websites, like Schoolhouse Teachers, all the links and passwords are stored on that one computer. “gasp* We can’t be expected to remember the passwords, now can we? lol I think it’s time to make out a computer schedule. Definitely a computer schedule. We’ll work on that next week.
In lieu, of pictures, because I have none, I’ll leave you with some quotes from P.E. this week.
“Guys! My heart is beating!”
“I’m about to collapse a lung!”
Awesome, right! lol I’ll try and have some awesome pictures next week!
