Well, we are in the middle of our summer break. We have been enjoying this summer as much as we can. But the truth is that I was working summer school and Anna was completing her 10 grade taking her sweet ol’ time. We went to Dallas to watch a Dan and Phil show. (We really enjoyed that, thank you!)
But this month we decide to change our homeschool curriculum. Well, it’s not much of a change. We have been using AOL Lifepacs for many years now. But last year I was considering to use Monarch because of the monthly payment convenience. Little did I know is that Monarch is actually Switched On Line which is the Lifepacs but made electronically.
I remember using Switched On Line when Anna was in Fourth Grade and I liked it very much. It has the same curriculum and lesson plans than the Lifepacs and it’s very user friendly. Well, we are right now taking advantage of the 30 day free Monarch subscription and we already love it.
We are definitely using it this year because it makes Anna more accountable for her work. It’s less work for me as a teacher. It grades almost all her work; it schedules her classes and we can reschedule them as many times we need for our convenience. If a parent has multiple students, the curriculum is available for all grade levels at the same time but individually for each student. It is very convenient. And the monthly payment is low.
It’s definitely what we need while we move to our new home. (Yes, we are buying a house!!!) And all the other good things that are happening. God is good!
But I strongly recommend to make the homeschool change that is more convenient for you and your family. Well, until next time and keep up the good work!
