I found this site, and they have an end of year test. I am going to print it out and see how my girls do. It'll give me a good idea how my 10 year old is doing, what else she needs help with (besides multiplication)! Has anyone used this site before?

That's awesome. It looks just a little accelerated from what PS is doing. I try to keep in the same ball park as the PSs.

This looks like a nice testing site.  I have never used this site before but I may try it out andsee what its like just for personal experience. :)

I try to follow PS too, I know most home schoolers don't but it's kind of like a guide line for me I guess, keeps me, and the kids, on track. I like to ask my daughters friends what they are doing in certain subjects and always am surprised that we are way ahead of them. I printed off the end of year test. I know my first grader would ace it right now but my 5th grader will not. We still have work to do in 5th grade Math!

I ask my kids' friends, too. It looks like Cole would do fine except in maybe two areas because he is finally catching up on reading. We haven't worked on Math word problems because of it.

We use Math Mammoth as our math curriculum. The old version.

The old version IS very accelerated, but that fits with our goals. MM is now aligning their products with CCS, so we will no longer be using them.

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we have traditional gender roles, we're Catholic, I'm Libertarian, he's Republican, we're both conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

I bought the Multiplication books. (I don't know the difference between the old and new so...) I think just starting over will help and what she knows we'll skip. I will continue in the other areas but focus on the multiplication for now.
