What School Looks Like in Our House

So I’ve written about my Master Lesson Plan Book and how I assign my kids their school work. But I haven’t written about the nuts and bolts of how we do school in our house.

As I’ve said before, we use an online homeschool curriculum. Therefore, most of the work my kids do, is at the computer. There are three computers in our house, but my kids only use one for their homeschooling.

In the past, I’ve let the two older ones work through their assignments on their own. However, kids being kids, (Please tell me that your kids are like this too!), they will skim through the lessons without reading and skip quizzes. Because of this, MyHero has requested that I sit with them when they are doing school.

They are required to score 70% or better on any quiz and test or they have to redo it. If they have to redo the quiz or test more than 3 times, they have to redo the entire lesson.

I assign 4 days of school in their assignment books, leaving Friday free to do “make-up” work. If they have no “make-up” work to do then they get to have the day off from school.
