It’s blog cruise time again!!!
This week’s question is “ What are your Homeschool related goals for the year?”
hmmmmmm …. well, I would have to say that most of my homeschool goals this year will revolve around the younger two. They are Pre-School and 4th grade. The big kids ( a Senior and Junior ) are moving on and their goals are becoming ones they set….. which is hard to get used to…. but I am adjusting….maybe.
For my Pre-Schooler, Jeremiah, I am looking to see him be able to write his name independently, and with lower case letters. I also want him to be able to recognize all of the letters of the alphabet and their sounds. He is currently helping his brother learn his multiplication tables, and I think that we might be able to get some addition facts glued into his brain as well.
Hunter, my 4th grader, is getting a reality check this year. Expectations have gone up, and the real work has begun. For him, we want to have cursive licked by this year. A solid grasp on his multiplication and division facts memorized to 12. We need to see an improvement in penmanship so that he doesn’t write like a serial killer, along with an improvement in the fluidity of reading. He struggles with spelling so we take that area slower for now but the goal is to begin to see marked improvement in that area this year as well.
My personal goal for this year is CONSISTENCY!!!!!!!!!!!!! sometimes I get too relaxed with school. I have to quit that. So my goal is to be consistent and get work done every day. I struggle with reading aloud the work that needs to be done with him, and he has struggled to read it on his own…. so we skip things if I don’t have the time to sit and read. My goal is to end that and just read what needs to be done, one day at a time.
So there you have it, our illustrious goals for the year. What are your goals? I would love to hear what they are…. Have you written them down? I find that writing them down and putting them near something I see everyday helps keep me focused and on task.
