As busy homeschooling mothers of many children, Rachel and I have found that having a simple system in place to help our children work independently is a MUST! I once heard someone say that one of our chief responsibilities as mothers is to "work ourselves out of a job" and I couldn't agree more. From the moment our children are tottering around on chubby little legs, we should be training them to be helpers and workers. By the time our children are young teens, they ought to be able to take over lawn care, meal preparation and many other household tasks completely independent from Dad and Mom. Sound like a dream come true?

The end of another school year is upon us.
Whoot whoot! You can't see me, but I'm doing a happy dance in front of my computer. (Actually, it's probably a good thing you can't see me, because I can't dance.)
Confused about how to calculate your student's grade point average (GPA)? It is really simple and can be done in 3 easy steps!
Calculating and Awarding High School Credits
This is our second post on High School Record Keeping. To read the first post, click here.
In this post, we're going to give a little information on how to calculate and award credits.
There are basically two generally accepted methods for calculating and awarding high school credits.
1. Ready-made curriculum. This would be a high school textbook or curriculum (for example, Teaching Textbooks Algebra I or Apologia Biology) or a college course (online or on campus).
2. Counting hours for high school level–work. This method is particularly geared toward the delight-directed or unschooling approach, but is also a great way to earn elective credits through things your child is already doing.
