Tips & Tricks: Grading

When grading first thing you need to do is check your state laws on homeschool. Some states require you to keep record of your curriculum and and grading while some don’t. I do not have to keep any records or grading. Since I use Timberdoodle they have an awesome online scheduler that I use. You don’t have to use Timberdoodle to use their scheduler. It has all the curriculum that we use and in the check boxes I put the grades. At the end of each year I keep the scheduler pages so I have records. Below is how I grade things. I also do not show our daughter the grades or tell her them. I don’t want her to worry about getting a bad grade. When she’s in middle school and high school grades that’s when I’ll start letting her know about grade. 


My grading system:

Pre-K - 2 Grade: she will not see the grade
E: excellent; no extra work needed; 100-90%
S: satisfactory; give a little extra work; 89-80%
N: needs improvement; give a lot of extra work; 79-0%

3 - 5 Grade: she will only see letter grade if she wants to know her grade
A: 100-90%
B: 89-80%
C: 79-70%
U: Unsatisfactory; 69-0%

6 - 12 Grade: she’ll now see the percentage grade
100-90%: A
89-80%: B
79-70%: C
69-60%: D
59-0%: F

For essays I found some great rubrics online.

Review: Geoboards

A fun way to help kids get great hand-eye coordination isn’t with  Geoboards . I love that with these there are 4 boards included so you can use it with multiple students. The rubber bands are different colors and 2 different sizes. The pictures are fun, colorful and you get a bunch of them. My daughter really likes these. For some reason she thinks it’s so funny when the bands pop her. At first I just let her place the bands anywhere to get the idea of how to put them on. Then we started places them just on the white lines in the picture. She always wants to do more than one so I let her do as many pictures as she wants. I do wish there was a blanket picture so she could design her own things.
