At the end of each school year, if you happen to homeschool in NH, an evaluation is required of your 'students'. We have a couple of options to choose from...portfolio review, standardized testing, or other review that is set up with your representing agency.
This year, I chose to have my children do standardized testing. I am not a real fan of them, but I needed to know the strengths and weaknesses of Nick and Sam's learning this past year. I quickly found out that their reading and comprehension is excellent, language arts are great and their sentence structure is beyond what I expected. When it comes to math, Nick needs a little work with multiplication and Sam is right where she needs to be.
2011/2012 year is officially over!!!
2012/2013 is barely beginning with Life of Fred - Edgewood. Samantha has requested to start Horizons Math next week. The month break between the school years has now dwindled to 2 weeks. Thank goodness we school year round.
