Last year was a CRAZY year...and my homeschooling, though started out awesome, definatly took a nosedive and never really recovered. As much as I would love for my brillant little 9 year old beauty to go on to "4th grade" i really don't think she's ready...with the exception of reading...she's a little above a 4th grade level there. But in history, and especially language arts (the child doesn't know a verb from a puppy), handwriting, and spelling...it's pitiful. I'm finding i'm mixing several third grade level items with fourth grade, but it's looking more like 3rd grade. In the past i've always made a huge deal about moving up to the next grade, but i don't feel like she's there..and what sucks, is, it's not her fault at all...it's mine completly. Any suggestions???
