Hey Chrystal - do you have any links of things I can do with my kids over the summer? I want to continue "afterschooling" and they seem to love it. Just not sure what to do with them this year.

Thoughts? Erin will be in 6th (probably needs high school stuff)
Andrew will be in 3rd - thinking at least 4th grade material
Shane will be in first - sticking to grade with him for now.

Do you have a site that can assess where they are?

Need some direction PLEASE!!!

I think all of these are free (or very cheap), but I may be mistaken about a few. I have tons of links in my favorites bar that are all sorted by subject mostly, so that's how I'll do it here:

GENERAL FREE SITES
BIBLE
ART
TYPING
MUSIC

.....more to come.

Oh... I missed that part. Yes. I would use Online Reading Assessment, Math Assessment and Supplemental Instruction to figure out appx what grade level they're all at in math and reading. It's a K-12 test, and it will give you grade level scores for each subtest as well as state guideline checklists (because it was written for CA, so states will vary a little). Each test is $20, but if you join Homeschool Buyer's Co-op, you can get them for $15 each. (You have to check a little box that says "yes, I'm a homeschooler" or something like that. IMHO, afterschooling is a form of homeschooling. Absolutely.)
