For the past 2 years at least, I have been thinking about homeschooling my daughters. I have been researching hi and low for a good way to do so.
Last school year, my eldest was having some difficulty with her school work. According to my brother she has some kind of anxiety thing going. The problem was she was not turning in her work on time, some, not at all. When I asked her why, all I got was "I don't know". That was frustrating. Not only as a confused mother, but I knew she was doing her work, I sat up with her and checked it for her.
In the end, when summer vacation started, I gave her a few placement tests. For reading, she scored in the 11th grade, and in Math she scored great in Pre-Algebra, she might be ready for Algebra. Along with her anxiety problem, I think she was bored with her classes, always leaving her assignments for the last minute. Then, at the deadline, she freaked out at how much she had to do.
This is what made me finally make up my mind.
I will homeschool my daughters from now on.
Currently, I am saving up to buy a few supplies like, a HUGE dry-erase board, which I will be making, the instructors manuals, and the first 3 books needed for each of the girls. I am also in the process of finding a good certified teacher that will be helping me with the assessments. That way, my girls will not have to take the standardized tests at the end of the year.
Legalities, don't you just love them?
Wish us luck...
