Re: Kindergarten questions
I am currently homeschooling my 6 year old (1st grader) :
1.) I don't grade anything, I review her work and mark the ones that are incorrect and we review them.
2.) For Kindergarten we spent about an 1-1.5 hours a day, right now for 1st grade it's looking like we'll end up around 2-2.5 hours (depending on how cooperative she is). We only plan on school 4 days a week (we attend a homeschool co-op one day a week) and some days she will do several days worth of one subject and other days she won't do any. I make a plan per "quarter" of what I want to get done in her books and I keep track as we go along.
3.) I haven't heard of workboxes either but I'm off to read about them.
