Big Week!

Tropical Trilogy
Tropical Trilogy

Dreaming of this....but...
The reality is very different.

A busy week lies ahead.
No sand or sun in our future.

Homeschool Evaluations.
Candle Making.
Landscape Jobs.
A Friend's Graduation.
Chauffer Duties.

All good things.
Just all at the same time.

Wishing you a week
that is calm
and serene.

See you soon.

♥♥Becky K.♥♥

i haven't had to do the evaluations for several years.. testing anyway. we have done summary reports for the last few years. next year noah will have to be formally tested, but he'll be my only "official" homeschooler after this year, so that will make things quite a bit easier☺

what kind of evals do you all have to do in your state?

No sand on sun in my upcoming week too. (calling for rain) But it's nice to dream...It sounds like you are going to have a very busy week. Hope all goes smoothly for you...Blessings, Jill

Diane...You asked what we have to do in PA?

Each year we file an affadavit that states our intention to homeschool. We also must file objectives of the things we will cover in that school year.

In grades 3,5 and 8 our children must take standardized tests.

Every year end the children are evaluated by a certified teacher to ensure that they are making progress in their work. I prepare a portfolio to take to this makes it easier to document the progress. Some School Districts want to see these portfolios. Mine doesn't.

More interference than I would like, but it makes me do the Portfolio which I love to look back to. If I wasn't forced to do it, I would likely always have great intentions. The kids would still get the education but I wouldn't have an organized way to review it. So, there you have it.
