The Master Record Sheet is one of our most important documents in the homeschool system we use. The Progress Chart is also important as it allows the student to see how he is doing and encourages him to move forward. Read this article »
After more than a month of having our homeschool break, we finally officially started with our Level 4 PACES last October 16, 2012. As per my own homeschooler’s words, “The Math lessons are extra challenging in this level,” and for good reason. With the other subjects, he is doing great. Even in his Filipino and Araling Panlipunan subjects, I have to say that he is able to grasp the lessons despite the fact that his primary language is not Filipino. There are a handful of “Talasalitaan” we had to consult the internet for, but nothing major that would require a lot of hours burning the night lamp.
There are a few things we do not do now that we used to do when we were still starting. Like wearing his school uniform, for instance. Because our homeschooler is able to define when “homeschool time” is, we went easy on him having to wear his uniform like he used to during his first two years of homeschooling. Read this article »
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.
