At the used book sale I saw all kinds of great ideas for 7th grade. We are going to stick w/ using time4learning for a most of our stuff, but it got me to thinking about how somethings that change with each grade level.
Like the 7th grade math vocabulary , we will now be talking more algebraic words like equivalent, radicand, expression, simplify, binomial and more geometry words like diameter, convex, concave, perimeter, diagonal, oblique. there are so many that he will learn this next year.
Oh, what about writing. How about a different approach to writing. I think I have found a great way to teach writing and a few extra computer skills with a some keyboarding skills thrown in a the same time for Biggun next year. We might try a blog writing course and see how that goes. We would not make his blog public at first but once he felt comfortable then we would make it open to family and friends by invitation. The boy is only 11 years old after all.
So as you look forward to the new school year what do you see that you might be learning? I have a friend whose daughter will be starting duel enrollment classes so she will be adding to her vocabulary for the college classes. What a great adventure that will be for her.
Would love to hear about the new stuff your child might be learning about in the upcoming year.
