Homeschool Our Way: Our Fourth Grade K12 Learner

  • November 10, 2017

It’s been a long time since I last post and I am trying to get back into the swing of things…but I’m back!!

Here’s a small recap…

Early this year, we decided to home school our five children. This decision was based on our experience with our youngest child in preschool. You can refer to that post for the details. Anyway, we are entering into our 12th week of homeschooling and to say the least, it has been challenging yet rewarding! Our the next few posts, I will break down each child’s curriculum and experience.

Today, we will get a quick look at Rylee’s curriculum. We decided K12 was a good fit for Rylee. K12 is an online public school using Texas curriculum and expectations. Honestly, the program is little more advanced than your average brick and mortar institution but Rylee is handling it like a champ!┬áThe first few weeks was a learning curve, but we finally understand the structure and expectations of the program. Rylee is our only online learner and I know she loves the idea of being the only one in the house to do this program. Rylee’s lessons are all self-paced but being her learning coach, I like to keep up with the teachers and lesson plans given. Lessons are emailed in 3 week sections and Rylee has the ability to stay ahead of her work. I am still trying to get use to her teachers because some of them are always late sending required work and assignments which makes it difficult to stay ahead because we are almost always an assignment behind. Other than that, Rylee is maintaining her grades and received A’s and B’s this past quarter!! Go Rylee!!! If you have any questions about K12, you can refer to their website or leave a comment below!
