I shook things up for our 6th grader today because he has been bored and disengaged. I put him on ALEKS for math, and enrolled him to take social studies on campus - he already goes every day for orchestra and this is the period right before that. I am also enrolling him in a GradPoint science course with American school. He takes two writing classes at a co-op, so this will have everything covered. What worked for our older son - working at home with books - was not working for the younger. I love having the flexibility to make changes.
These ideas had been percolating for next year, but I slept well last night and woke up with a clear plan this morning, to not wait and to start them ASAP. The ALEKS is on, the school will get him in the class on Tuesday, and I just need to email a form to American and pay for the class.
Has anyone else made sudden major mid year changes ?
update: The American class didn't work out because the honors isn't available right now, and the other one is only a half year, but he will go through it more quickly and I don't want to spend the money for just a month or two of science. So I am going to try Acellus in tutor mode for him instead.
