Another 9 Weeks of School are History!

There are only NINE weeks of school left to the 2011-2012 school year! This year flew right on by, didn't it? I am thrilled we have completed our first nine weeks of home schooling with Ryan, grade 4! He is excelling in his grades ~~~ although some days are a struggle to get him focused on what needs to be accomplished. I figured up his grades . . . with the exception of Spelling . . . I will figure that up tomorrow - and, well you decide for yourself!

English: Quarter 1: 89.9, Quarter 2: 88.6, Quarter 3 - Homeschool: 93.75 - A

History: Quarter 1: 81.7, Quarter 2: 85.9, Quarter 3 - Homeschool: 98.5 - A

Math: Quarter 1: 86.4, Quarter 2: 88.6, Quarter 3 - Homeschool: 93.2 - A

Penmanship: Quarter 1: 1.9, Quarter 2: 1.2, Quarter 3 - Homeschool: 2 S

Reading: Quarter 1: 85.4, Quarter 2: 90.3, Quarter 3 - Homeschool: 95.25 - A

Science: Quarter 1: 83.4, Quarter 2: 85.5, Quarter 3 - Homeschool: 91.75 - A-

Spelling: Quarter 1: 93.2, Quarter 2: 91.4, Quarter 3 - Homeschool: to be determined tomorrow

As you can see, one on one teaching has helped him tremendously! Homeschooling has shown me how my son learns best to bring out his full potential. We are able to work each day on strengthening the areas in which Ryan is weak and enforcing those strong areas as well.

Ryan studies through Abeka Academy and their NEW 10 point grading scale is as follows:

A+ 98-100, A   93-97, A-  90-92
B+ 87-89, B 83-86, B- 80-82
C+ 77-79, C 73-76, C- 70-72
D+ 67-69, D 60-66, F 0-59


Today, Ryan put in a full days work and even accomplished much of his school work for tomorrow. He had a long day today, but we both are thrilled to have an easier day scheduled for tomorrow.

Katelyn is now officially out of college for Spring Break . . . she is breathing a sigh of relief! I am excited that she will be hanging out around the house for the next week.

Health: 88.7 B
