My son is having to read several books while out of school. He also has to do math on the pc.

Here is a web site the kiddies can work on..

Jennifer wrote:I've never been a huge fan of summer break, in my eyes it just not realistic for children in the sense that in the real life we don't get summer break.. I'm getting really worried about my children's education at this point, I can only do so much from home while they are here. This has been 3 straight years that at some point during the winter months we have has so many snow days. I'm a huge fan of consistency is the key to education.

Although I am highly dependent on the buses, I want my kids to be safe and I've had so much fun with them home. But at what point will educators see that this is not working? I just wonder if anyone has thought of having a nontraditional calender school year? I'm sure most will not understand, but vacations and running lose in the summer time is fun, but what about the fundamentals of education.

I've allotted 2 hours of school time work for them everyday, but along with not being a proficient in math and spelling lol in some things I'm lost. Not only that but alot of their therapy is set up to be done at school, so they don't have to miss class. I'm kinda getting really worried.

The largest employer in Harlan Co gets a summer break, so it is realistic that if they strive to enter the teaching profession they will get summers off. Consistency is the key to behavior management, and the key to raising well mannered kids. What you should be worried about is programs such as the No Kids Left Behind Act, Cats Testing, Star reading program, and any other Government mandated test. Curriculum is the key to education.

If no child gets ahead, then no child will be left behind.

I hear that the county is dismissing early because of the weather. I do know that the roads hadn't been touched early this morning, or at least Pine Mtn hadn't been. I was also just told that a wreck occurred on Pine Mountain a little bit ago.
