If you have read my posts for years, you know that my oldest is going off to college — tomorrow. When I started blogging, she was in 4th grade, and my youngest was only one years old. It’s unreal how fast time goes.
I had no clue then that we would move away from our large church with huge Christian school and go to a much smaller ministry that has a school of 8 children this year. I literally teach a one-room schoolhouse that has 7 grade levels.
This year, I have two 8th graders doing Physical Science, extra Mystery of History papers, and Progeny Press’s literature e-guides, and I have one 10th grader doing Chemistry and Sonlight’s 20th Century World History, Liturature, and Bible. Of course they have other subjects they are doing, but those subjects have assignments that are in notebooks or on their computers that I have to grade.
It was becoming overwhelming for me to remember which subjects I had to go to their desks and grade their work. All of the other students turn in their work, and so it’s easy to remember to grade all their subjects. I decided to stream-line it and make up grading forms. These grading sheets will stay in a folder that I pull out on the weekend and fill in. This makes it easy for me to remember what I need to grade.
Maybe some of these forms you can use yourself. I think you might be able to edit your own copy if you “Make a copy” of it and then edit your copy. (Find the “Make a copy” tab under the “File” tab on Google Docs.
Here are some grading sheets I made for this year (so far):
- Sonlight Grading Form — this is a four page document, one page for each quarter. I have a space for a grade for literature, history, maps, and verses. If you only grade some items, then you wouldn’t have to use all four of the columns.
- Apologia Physical Science Grading Form — this is a 2 page document. Each page covers one semester (1/2 of the book). It could also be used for General Science, although the labs wouldn’t line up exactly.
- Berean Builders or Apologia Chemistry Grading Form — this could be used for any Apologia or Berean Builder Science class.
- Progeny Press Grading Form — I put 12 lines under the chapters/sections column. Some of the Progeny Press guides I have do have 12 sections of chapters, but some have less. Then most guides have an overview section and the guides for upper grades have an essay section. If you don’t need those rows, they can be crossed out or not used. Here is a grading form I made for Eagle of the Ninth.
- Here is the Mystery of History Grading Sheet I made up. I grade the folders of Middle School every week as they have an additional daily paper to do. There is one sheet for each quarter.
- Here is also a Book Review form I made for my 10th grader to fill out for some of the supplemental books she is reading for Sonlight. Again, to change it, “make a copy” of it, and then you hopefully can type on or edit your copy.
- We are using Apologia’s book Who is God? for 4th-8th grade Bible. I will share the study guides I am making at a later time.
- I also have study sheets and some supplemental pages for Mystery of History I will share later.
