============================
On Your Own
============================
When I have to do my kitchen chores, my student can work in: Exercises in English & Vocabulary, I put a Post-it Note: START on the part for the WEEK that they will start and STOP at the end of that subject. the books are self explanatory and can be worked independently. I have inputted the words from the spelling list (OLS - Copy and paste) into spelling city, this is also independent learning. they have the fun of printing out the certificate when they get the test correctly.

============================
Help from Mom
============================
GRAMMAR / USAGE / MECHANICS
student can self direct on this for the most part. I put a Post-it Note: START on the part for the WEEK that they will start and STOP at the end of that subject. the books are self explanatory and can be worked independently.

COMPOSITION
student open up computer , go to google docs and create a new text document, title: (lesson one is Memoir)
and start your rough draft... (First 8 lessons on Memoir) keep using the same document without having to rewrite and rewrite and well you get picture:
be sure and 'share' the document with MOM and TEACHER.

============================
BED TIME BOOKS:
============================
I do not stress about this part of the lesson, the spirit is that I do some reading, they do some reading, we talk about what is going on and why. basic understanding of what the author meant.

NOW IF ... IF we have time later in the year and we WANT to go back and pick up some of other books, lovely, but for us, this is our limit of what we can get done and be successful and what I feel is the core foundation that we need to read and write well.
