Day 142. Thoughts on 4th Grade.

As the end of the year is upon us, I asked the kids to write a one page essay on their thoughts about the year. This was from my 10 year old daughter, Taylor. She is finishing up 4th grade.

I really like homeschooling because we can stay in bed later. I also like it because we can stay in our p.j.’s all day. We don’t have as much homework and we can skip school on our birthdays. We also have more family time.

What I do not like about homeschooling is that I do not get to see my friends from school as often. Especially Sydney, I really miss her. I also did not like math this year because it was too hard.

What I learned this year is that family is very important to spend time with. I feel like I have learned a lot more about my family this year. I learned that Cameron REALLY likes the army.

What I would like to see happen next year is a more organized school year. Which I am suspecting will happen as my mom gets better at being our teacher. I would like to see more art projects, too. Mommy, here is my note to you: You are a great homeschool mom. It is really great that you chose to homeschool. I love you sooooo much!

Now there is just 28 school days left until summer.

    That’s really sweet! Tell her that when she gets to college she can wear her pjs to school too 🙂

    Oh my gosh! My 4th grade daughter was just telling me the same things.

    1) That she misses going to school because she doesn’t get to see her friends everyday for recess and lunch.

    2) That hs is hard. Lots of work to do and it-has-to-all-get-done.

    3) She would like for me to be better organized next year.

    too funny!

    How sweet! What a nice letter! I think my kids would agree on the themes, too 😉
