Grading Homeschool

In my state it is not required that I keep grades. However, I am choosing to do I can see at a glance how she is doing. Since I chose Timberdoodle, they have a scheduler with check boxes for each assignment that you do. I plan on writing in the grades there and keeping them that way. I won’t show our daughter grades until 3rd 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: Djeco So Pop

Our daughter loves arts and crafts.  Djeco So Pop  is another amazing art project that she had a blast doing. I got it through Timberdoodle and it also comes with their PreK Curriculum Kit . The kit comes with 4 different projects and all the pieces you need to put them together. This particular kit came with little envelopes for each project that had sequence in them so I popped out each item for the projects and put them in the envelopes so everything would be ready go when do each one. Djeco also give you a glue stick so you can glue the pieces on the boards but I have found the glue they provide isn’t that great so instead we use hot glue. What I really like about Djeco art kits is that they give you a little booklet that shows where to put each piece on the boards. It shows you through pictures so if your child doesn’t read yet it’s not a problem. Easy for a young kid to follow and great for the parent because you don’t have to read a lengthy instruction book.  I’
