Save Money.As a home schooling mom, you don’t need anyone to tell you how expensive it can get. One way to save money is to use free homeschool resources when you can. Free fraction worksheets that you can print out can help.
Grading an Essay: Grading an essay or project can be much trickier because you’re not dealing with a simple correct or incorrect answer. In these cases, you need to clearly explain to your child what you will expect from them and then decided how close to that expectation they’ve come. Rubrics are a great way to grade written essays. Rubrics break down every element that is being considered and assigns points to each. Click here for some sample rubrics.
The main problem with what I see with my students and my own children is that kids are taught ”concepts” and are not taught skills–unless they’re lucky enough to have a teacher who knows better.
There are other sources for worksheets also. You can find many public schools and private schools which will provide free worksheets for you if you buy textbooks from the school. Or you can usually find textbooks and workbooks at the public library, where you can also copy any worksheets that you want to use.
What dedicated teachers and parents need to do is to supplement public school instruction with strategies that work, that have always worked, to get kids to really master the fundamental skills of elementary math.
