Year Assessment: MaryEllen
In the state of Georgia, we have to write up a yearly progress report for each student. I thought I would share what I wrote for the MaryEllen. Donnie’s can be found here.

School Year: August 01, 2010 – July 31, 2011
MaryEllen has become more efficient in her studies and with her time. She does each subject in an adequate amount of time.
In math, she finished Saxon 65 and began Saxon 76. She has had no problem understanding the concepts and completing the assignments on her own. She has scored 90 or above on her tests.
She went through a course titled, “The Writing Course,” which teaches the student to write effectively. Through writing daily, for a half hour, the student learns grammar, spelling, punctuation, sentence structure and more. MaryEllen did very well with the course. The course is meant to be repeated a few times a year, which she did.
Her spelling is very good. Most of her vocabulary comes from the books which she reads. She has also done very well with vocabulary scoring 95 or above on each test.
MaryEllen enjoys reading and has read books during studies and in her free time. She reads at or above grade level. Some books she read this year are, The Back Stallion, Alice in Wonderland, Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates, Five Little Peppers and How They Grew, Johnny Appleseed, Stonewall Jackson, Kavik, Black Beauty and more.
Most of her history comes from her reading, but she did learn about Daniel Boone and the opening of the West. We read out of Abraham Lincoln’s World and other books including, Daniel Boone and the Opening of the Wilderness and Frontier Living by Edwin Tunis.
She also learned who her state Governor and Representatives are.
She began learning the States, their capitals and placement on the map. She catches on quickly and has learned more than half this year. She will continue to learn the remainder going into next year.
For science, she enjoyed reading through The Magic School Bus Series. The books included subjects such as, the earth, insects, anatomy, habitats, archeology, and kitchen chemistry.
She has also enjoyed nature outside and draws what she observes, such as a bird feeding her young in their nest in our tree. She observed this nest from the time the young birds were just eggs until they eventually flew away.
That is it in a nutshell. I don’t like to go into too much detail. This doesn’t have to be sent in, but I do have to have it filed away.
