This is our first year of testing while in home school. I've never been like this with any of their other state tests. I just make sure they do their homework, get plenty of sleep and remember to put on their thinking caps on the way out. So why now I ask myself.
I'm assuming I don't want to be fired. As silly as that sounds. It's a lot riding on the parent as the teacher I believe. Am I doing a good job? Are they understanding it? Am I having enough patience with them? Could I of explained it better? All thoughts that go through my head. What if I'm the reason they don't do well. Maybe I over help them. What if I haven't given them the confidence to know they'll do just fine.
I love teaching them, and I know they prefer it. I do not want to fail them. I guess I just need validation that I'm doing it right. These tests should give me the answers. Wish I didn't have to wait an entire summer for the results. Is this normal newbie thang?
