Any moms looking to award credits to the transcript for an 8th grader? And if so, what kinds of credits? I'm looking at biology, writing and possibly ASL.

    I gave DD a U.S. History credit, since it was the same thing most kids do in 9th or 10th.

    Ds is doing Algebra 1 and Spanish 1. We've started some toward 9th grade English and toward Geography, but those will be mostly next year.

    I was thinking about foreign language and science. She may be able to get an english credit this year as well. My options for ASL did not work out as I had hoped, so that's not going to happen. Thanks for your ideas!

Facing the mid-year slump! How do you keep your motivation going when you're ready to be done for the school year??

    I'm always motivated this time of year - all my ps friends are complaining that their children won't learn anything the rest of the year; they'll just be testing. :( So I remind myself grimly to be thankful that my children may keep learning, and that they don't have to take the stupid tests. Honestly, it's enough to keep me going until summer.

    We took spring break early. I didn't even think about school. I am also doing all my planning for next year now so that in about nine weeks, we can go on summer break. I am also planning out our summer activities. We have so much to look forward to which makes the goal of finishing easier. Hope this helps.

    Great ideas. Especially taking one day at time. Sometimes I get overwhelmed trying to finish the entire year.
    We did take a small spring break- 3 days I think, so that helped.
    And yes I'm planning my next year too, which gives me a little motivation and excitement that we are almost done with this year.

Starting week 7 of 7th grade here. Everything is going rather well except for science. I'm looking for other parents who have used it. I'm off to the forums!

My planner finally came. Now I can get my plans going. A little late I know, but better late than never!

    I got the Ultimate Homeschool Planner by Debra Bell. I've used it some today and I am pretty happy with it so far!

    Yes me too. It's plenty of blank space to use how I need to.

Interesting discussion on several other forums I've seen over the last few years. What's your position on kids and smart phones?

    Generally, if I'm on a kid or a smart phone, they are being crushed - so I try not to be on either.
