Caitlin will also be doing a final writing assignment next week. I let her pick the topic, and she will be posting it to her blog when completed. She will get the option to proofread and edit it one time, before I grade it. She knows what the Rubric is, and if she gets a grade of 75 or above, I won't make her do any Writing over the Summer. If she doesn't she will have to continue practicing. She will do Math, on Easy Peasy Homeschool, and Reading Assessment, a few days a week over the Summer.
I have to start getting portfolios done. Well, actually only one this year, because DJ is taking the SAT in August, and that will count as his evaluation this year. It doesn't save me any money, though.
In the coming weeks you will see me start to post curriculum for next year. DJ will be mostly doing FLVS, so his will be very easy to arrange. Caitlin will be in 8th grade, so it will be my last year to really have some fun with her, and her lessons. You may also see me post ideas for homeschool graduation, and college readiness.
Oh, before I forget, DJ read Dracula, and Caitlin read Ann of Green Gables, plus watched the movie, and is currently reading Gentle Ben.
