This also means that I have to give my 7yo a standardized test sometime this spring or summer. Ugh! He really doesn't write much, his name, numbers sometimes. That's about it. He doesn't write sentences. He doesn't read stories or books on his own yet but he does read words and phrases here and there. He doesn't do math problems. He sure can do quick math in his head without even thinking about it, though. So cool!
Sometimes he tells me that I have to do "school" for him. I pull out some workbooks and/or print some worksheets off the internet. He might do one or two pages and then he's done.
I have to admit that being an official homeschooling unschooler in the US state I'm in does have me a bit stressed. There isn't really any oversight. I have to keep attendance (seems like a no-brainer but whatever), keep vax records on file (we don't vax) and administer a nationally standardized test (that don't even have to be submitted to anyone). I just don't like someone else telling me what I have to do with myself or my own kids.
I don't know why this came out so negative. That was not my intention when I thought of posting this. I guess I didn't realize how much I really dislike the idea of having to report someone else.
