We are done with term 1 for school year 2016. Been working on the kids upcoming exams, and here are the final questions. (I’ll be serving chocolates and ‘tea’ as we go through each section.)



I will be recording the oral narrations. Hoping I will be able to transcribe all of their answers for documentation purposes.

**The questions below are based on Ambleside Online, our main Charlotte Mason curriculum guide.

  1. This is great! I've never done this sort of exam before...I just review with myself where I feel like they are at...I always go back 'n forth about the why and need for these...it might be equal parts laziness on my part and also just not sure the reason FOR the exam. I do see how it would be nice to see where they are at and what they KNOW. :) Amy

    1. It's been great and I see the value in it. It's not testing them at all. The approach is quite gentle and even fun :) It helps me assess where I should focus on. Should I still read aloud a particular book to the child? or can she handle it already? do I need to break down readings more? maybe I need to help in the habit of attention again? or maybe the discipline to do copywork? so, I highly recommend :) Plus it's the only time I record their sweet voices narrating back such beautiful stories :)
