One of the things we are contacted for, almost on a daily basis, is who to call and how to enroll their child in the School of Tomorrow homeschooling program. Since these are answered in the FAQ page of Christian Homeschooler, I do not anymore individually answer each query.
For your information, aside from School of Tomorrow, there are other umbrella schools for homeschoolers you might want to check out as well. Here are their contact details.
School of Tomorrow 822-9663, 822-4309
International Christian Academy 820-4521, 825-8392
Kids World Integrated School, Inc. 413-0454, 430-4206
Meanwhile, in our llittle homeschooling nook, we are towards the last couple of PACES in our Level 3 curriculum. Our son has been consistently doing 100% on his tests on all his 7 subjects. Although his last 2 tests in Araling Panlipunan, he only scored 94%. So he’s working on his Tagalog now. It is proving to be a challenge that all the learnings in both Filipino and Araling Panlipunan are in Tagalog and guessing the correct answer in his tests will not work since some are already in Essay format.
It has been a couple months since we started with our Level 3 PACES and I just realized I still have not posted the subjects that our homeschooler has been working on since.
Aside from our son’s subjects from Level 1 and 2, Level 3 ushered in a brand new subject for him – Literature and Creative Writing, which in no time became another favorite. The other one being, Science.
Our 6 year old son’s Level 3 subjects are:
3. Social Studies
5. Word Building
6. Literature and Creative Writing
8. Araling Panlipunan
Our six year old little guy is now halfway through Level 2. We predicted last June that he was to finish Level 2 by September at the rate he was then going. But because there are more complex topics that he started learning in Math, we just let him work at his own pace. There is no rushing, anyway. He is only six years old. We value his learning more than how fast he will be able to pace through the curriculum.
Practice makes perfect. This is what we have been told for as long as we can remember and for good reason. It works. Take our homeschooler’s penmanship, for instance. It was not so long time ago that his handwriting was kinda of sorts. Look at how he has improved since. 🙂
So I said, our homeschooler is soon to take his Post Test for Level 1 soon. Turned out, there is no more test to take like such when a student has reached Level 1. All we have to do is to submit the Master Record Sheet, the pace tests, order the Level 2 paces and he’s good to go.
We’re really thrilled to be doing the Level 2 PACES. We ordered the PACES last week and we’ll get hold of them soon. The package for colored PACES costs P8,000. Plus the Academic fee of P3,000. The hubby decided that the colored PACES will better help our son to be more interested in his class. We ordered the non-colored ones for his Level 1, we only paid less than P3,000. He was okay with it. But we are hoping to assess how he’s going to respond to the difference. 🙂
FYI, the Academic Fee is paid on a yearly basis. Regardless of the number of Levels the student has finished throughout the year.
