5/1/16 pretest, meetings and Spring Break…

William’s e-mail still isn’t working so he had the employment agency sent the test to my e-mail. He took the test, but when he was done it was too late to call them. He can call tomorrow.
I need to ask Maggie how her meeting with the entrepreneurship teacher went. Did he open up the first test? She joined the class late and missed the first test. She needs to take this test and pass it to be able to pass the class
Beth has spring break next week. I emailed her math teacher to ask if Beth can do assessments in math over the break. Her math is online. After either ten hours or so many topics, the computer gives them a test or assessment to see of they understand the work. The assessments can only be done at school. Then if the kids are having someone else do their math at home, the teachers can see the students work on the tests. This makes sense, but Beth is very far behind. She needs the whole spring break to catch up. If the computer stops her after ten hours, the rest of the break would be wasted. I am not trying to take away her break, I just want her to pass math.


8/28/15 Aleks math and snow days

written 1.28.14 – cold out. Hope the radio has good songs. Too cold to take gloves off and gloves too big to change radio stations. Forgot to take out garbage. Which countries went under last week? It seems like so much of Europe is in financial trouble.
written 1.29.14 – it is zero deg today.
School is closed today. I e-mail Beth’s math teacher. If school is closed can they do math assessments at home? Their math class on the computer program Aleks. It is online. The students do math, and take quizzes and at the end of chapters. After they have been on Aleks for about ten hours the computer gives them an assessment to make sure that they have learned the information. The quizzes and assessments must be done at school. Normally this isn’t a problem, but the weather has been so bad this year that the kids have been out of school for more days then they have been in school. Some weeks in January they went to school either one or zero days. If they can’t take any of the tests at home, that means that they can’t do any math until they get back to school and can take the quiz or assessment and will fail the class. The teacher told them that they must meet their goals for each letter grade, it wouldn’t be adjusted for the weather. So, I keep calling to ask if they can do assessments at home. If the weather forecast looks OK at the end of a school day and it snows a lot or gets to twenty below with the wind chill, the students will not have school and the teacher won’t be able to allow assessments at home because he needs to reset the computer at the school to allow the assessments at home. It has been very frustrating. Beth is at home and could do math all day, but she is blocked out on the first day because of a need of an assessment and then she has three more days off because of the weather and can’t do any math for any of those days.


1/5/15 math and Minecraft…

written 8!1!13 – Beth is doing math on the computer. The program is called Aleks. She has until school starts to finish. The computer is starting to move slowly. As each day passes and the computer slows down more and the number of topics she must do per day grows. The stress is growing. The added problem is that it is summer and people want to play. It is difficult to keep up the pace. Also…after every ten hours of work, there is an assessment test. She is at the computer now.

Maggie has a new phone. She plays Minecraft. She builds houses in this game while zombies chase her. When she gets a second story built on a house she is safe from the zombies. The zombies can’t climb ladders or stairs. The game can’t be saved so she plays until the phone resets itself or the phone shuts off. She is so happy with this game.

We need to get Maggie’s drivers permit renewed. She drove over the summer and was getting good at it. But we didn’t drive enough that she could get her license. Maggie needs to get letters of reference from her teachers this year. She is a senior and will need them in future years for scholarship applications and for employment references. She needs to have them written on school letterhead.



12/8/14 tent, math and tests…

written 4/18/13 – We are going to put up our tent tomorrow. We are going to make s’mores when we are done.  We like the Hershey’s milk chocolate.  The weather is so nice today. I wish that we could go camping this weekend.
Beth has started doing her math homework at home on the computer again. We were having problems, the websites wouldn’t load. The math program is called Aleks. They do all of the work on the computer and can go at their own pace.
Maggie needs to take a test for school next week at the college, it must be outside of the normal school day because she was telling me that we need to schedule it.

blog income
I have been looking for a way to bring extra cash into my family without getting a second job. I just want enough extra income to be able to pay the bills but still be able to have time to enjoy my kids. I tried a lot of web sites that offered envelope stuffing, they were all dead ends. Then I tried blogging. I figured that if enough people visited my blog then I could add advertisements and get paid. If I monetized my blog I could take the profit to help my family. I have found Blogsvertise. With them I can have advertisements on my blog, or have guest posts or have banner ads. I am still new to this.
