AussieHomeschool Closing Down 11/14/2019All good things must come to an end and AussieHomeschool is no different. It is with much sadness yet even more necessity that this must be so. As of Sunday evening, 17/11/2019 the Discussion Forums will close. The Classifieds, for now although not indeterminate, will continue as is. Why is this happening now? In all honesty, it probably should have happened many years ago but I created this forum, which originally a homeschool classifieds forum for Aussies, about 20 years or so ago. I, along with others for whom I am gratefully indebted to, have spent many, many hours sweating, laughing, praying, crying, writing, apologising, pleading and speaking about this wonderful place. In this day and age of Social Media, along with our ages and therefore differernt stages of life, it is simply not viable in any way for it to continue. You may think differently and that's okay - you honestly have to have lived through some of the dramas and learning opportunities that we all have to truly appreciate why we have the standards that we do - they were borne out of necessity and not undertaken lightly. Much blood, sweat and tears have been spilt over this place. Even more friendships, learning, debate, love, prayer and great times have been had becuase of AussieHomeschool. No one could ever be more thankful for it than I.
I understand you may feel frustration or even anger and for that I apologise, I feel you. But now it is YOUR time to go out and spread the word of home education and its benefits. Share YOUR story, tell those you know and don't know about homeschooling and what is has done for your family. On behalf of John (my long suffering and patient husband), myself and the ENTIRE moderating team over the many years - I THANK YOU and WISH YOU ALL THE VERY BEST IN ALL YOUR ENDEAVOURS. God Bless, Susan (HomeGrownKids / AussieHomeschool)

Each piece of work to be assessed can have one of these sheets staple, glued, or paperclipped to it.
This rubric assesses:

(can you show me that you understand it)
(did you finish)

Last knight (!) I was reviewing our literacy direction and made up this game as a fun way to review the sounds of the phonograms.
Its essentially the same concept as the LEM game (in the back of the manual) "Crossing the River" (or something like that) where if you fall off the stepping stones you go back to the start.
You can play it as hard or as easy as you like - either you simply cant progress until someone has passed you and you learn what the sound/s are.
Or, for more advanced, every time you get a sound wrong, you go back to the start. Or go back 'x' spaces. Whatever suits you and your situation.
The essence is to practice the sounds. You could also colour the path in different colours to indicate that a right answer could jump forward 2 spaces for blue or five spaces for green. etc.
The basics are there - twist it to suit you.
This file is free - but please consider making a donation to AussieHomeschool running costs. (I have not consulted Susan on this, but would like to encourage and thank her for everything she has done to make AussieHomeschool the wonderful resource it is.)
