Homeschool Grading: Don’t spend too much time grading your kids’ papers!

Don’t spend too much time grading your kids papers! Honestly, I can hardly believe I’m writing this but it is true. If you are trying to get your 6th grader to write a perfect essay and so you correct every.single.thing. that you can find, re-write all the sentences, and re-arrange the content YOU ARE DOING TOO MUCH.
 
The curriculum we use (BJU Press Homeschool) comes with rubriks* to help us grade each writing assignment. There are points for content (Did the students get the point across in the essay? Did the ideas have logical progression?) and points for technical skills (Capitalization and punctuation, etc.) Those 2 scores are combined and a grade is assigned. This way both the student and the teacher know what is expected!

God Will Help: You Don’t Have to STAY TOXIC

This post is brought to you courtesy of Tamika Hurdle Smith of Chosen Troopers. I hope that her words will speak to your heart!

Toxic: You don’t have to be that person.

With so much grace and mercy that the Father has shown me, I am in no place to withhold grace and mercy from another.
