Happy New Year!
I have a sixth grader! I’m guessing if you are reading this you probably do, too. Over the course of the year I will be exploring what that means, ways to help them, and how to survive the insanity.
We are homeschoolers and our school year really doesn’t run with the public school year, so I might be talking about things that are in our home school that might not be happening in real school. We have been straddling grades for a couple of years now.
My daughter loves, loves, loves science, and so she will preferentially do science before she will do any other subject. In fact, there are days when all we get done is science. Because of this, she zips through her science curriculum.
Unfortunately, she dislikes math, tolerates language arts, dislikes spelling, and hates writing. Whew! As you can see, I have my hands full getting her to do other subjects besides science.
On a positive note, she loves to read, and play learning games, and she even likes social studies, so that is good news. Join me for the trials and tribulations of guiding a 6th grader the year!
