School days

I really haven't posted much about school and a typical day we have. So I thought I would show you a typical day in pictures

My day typically starts at 7 am when I get to school, where I mark test, books, submit the grades to the office and get the new work books for the kids in my building

8 am comes fast, and its time to start our day with Praise, worship and morning prayer

Then comes time to get to work, We use ACE ( a home school curriculum) and each day a student has to work in their PACE books which consist of English, Science, Social Studies, Math and Word building(spelling)

Of course lunch and break ensure silliness and games from the kids

Its not a lunch break with out little hands braiding my hair

That pretty much sums up a day at school. After school most days involves a nap before anything else in the day is accomplished,

This form of education assures easy to understand courses which do not require too much of your time to prepare for the materials needed to take up the lessons. The School of tomorrow also uses self-teaching units called “Paces” that allows students to work on their own speed of learning depending on their skills. It provides academic assessments and placement tests that will sort out the students’ strengths and weaknesses. This process will help in the identification as to where the learner will best flourish while trying to support their areas of improvement. The ACE home school curriculum is indeed complete and comprehensive because it includes five major subjects: Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, English and Word Building. The subjects contain 144 units beginning with pre-school up to grade level 12. The completion of the units in a year will depend on the students’ rate of learning, encouraging them to do their best and work according to their ability. This process motivates the student and delivers accountability on the tasks provided. The ACE home school curriculum allows students to set their goal and rewards them for their achievements. The learning materials provided are self-instructional mastery based work texts.
