Time to Hit the Books….Again

Posted by on 5 January 2009


Yes it’s true, Christmas Break is over with. It was time to hit the books again today.  We had a couple pages to get caught up with from before break so that I can get the report card done.  The rest was all new materials and units and starting with a bang.  

With the start of the second half of the school year, I’m going to try to share more of the materials that I use.  Much of it comes from curriculum, but some of it comes from the internet or other printables.  So, I’m really going to put some effort into sharing the materials that I can.  Don’t forget, there’s always tons of links on my “FREEBIES” page.  These are items that you can send in for free or minimal cost.  The majority of them though are free printables.

My first share of the new year is for Social Studies.  We’re starting a unit on economics.  Believe it or not, she’s never really learned about supply and demand.  These 2 links are for a download of a crossword puzzle and the key that I made for at the end of today’s lesson.

The first link share is also for Social Studies.  It’s for World History For All of Us and comes from San Diego State University.  There’s tons of material here for grades 6 – 12.  You can print whole units or just a little at a time.  It’s also updated on a regular basis.

For more homeschool download, I’m creating a “Homeschool Printables” page.  The “Printables” page that I now have will become “Christian Printables”.  Everything will be in PDF and linked to the files in my 4Shared.  For more links, keep checking back to my “Freebies” page.  I update this often.  I don’t remove anything unless I know it’s no longer available or not working.  If you have any issues with that page, please leave a comment on that page and let me know.

So, are you ready to hit the books again??

    Are you required to give report cards by the state when you homeschool? I think it’s a great idea and it lets your daughter know how well she is doing. Do you have to send the report cards to some state thingy too? Did your curriculum have report cards for you to use or did you have to make one up? Please post your homeschool report card. I’m dying to see what one looks like. Yes, I’m weird, but homeschooling is new to me and I’m curious. 🙂

    No, we’re not required to report anything to the state. OK is the easiest state to homeschool in. One of our only requirements is that we school for 180 days, which is actually more than public/private go to school.

    I choose to do a report card to let her know how she’s doing and it means alot to her. I also have an Honor Roll certificate if she makes all A’s and B’s. Nothing lower!! It was the same way when she was in school too.

    I’ll find my report card and Honor Roll certificate tonight or tomorrow and post them tomorrow!!

    That History site looks very interesting.

    It’s very interesting!! I’m sure not everyone agrees with everything on that site though. However, I believe in teachering both sides of the story. I always tell her that she can’t debate someone if she doesn’t know both sides and all the facts!! My dad always told me not to be the ignorant one and it’s stuck!! LOL
