Closing out the 2016-2017 School Year

So, another school year has come to a close. I don’t blog as much as I used to, for many reasons. Here on the school blog, it’s mostly because I’m not trying to make my own lessons anymore. With everyone doing most of their classes in Switched on Schoolhouse, the kids have been primarily teaching themselves. They log in, do their lessons, and only need me when they are struggling with a concept. Even with Math-U-See, the oldest watched the lessons and ran with it all on his own. He essentially taught himself Algebra II. There were a few times when a concept was hard to grasp that I had to help out. My real job in this whole process now is just to be available to help when needed, and keep track of the grades and paperwork.

All in all, it was a successful year. Everyone passed their classes with flying colors. So now that they’ve started their vacation, it’s time for me to plan the next school year.
