Self Evaluations

Posted on: 01/07/2010

Instead of doing my normal evaluations I thought that I would get the kids perspective. I had them each answer the following questions:

1. My best subject is ______.

2. I need the most improvement in __________.

3. If I could change one thing about our homeschool it would be ______.

4. I wouldn’t change this about our homeschool __________.

5. My educational goals for the rest of the year are.

6. The thing that I want to learn about before the end of the year is ______.

I thought that they did wonderful! They really thought hard. I was surprised how quickly some of the answers came.

Here are the answers:


1.  Math, it’s fun.

2. Reading

3.  Not doing it everyday.

4. No long days.

5. Finish my math book and read more books.

6. Snakes and sharks(surprise! NOT)


1. Math, it’s easy.

2. grammar and handwriting. I stink at handwriting.

3. go to the park more often

4. playing with my friends

5. read 21 books

6. arctic wolves and ice


1. writing, I like it so I do it more often.

2. math, I just can’t get it.  I just cannot master multiplication and division.

3. more scientific field trips.

4. I can’t think of anything to change.

5. Read 20 book and master my math facts.

6. Foxes and bats.

I think that I am going to do this more often. The children really liked doing this. It proved that their opinion is valuable. It also gives me a peek into their minds, which I just love.

How wonderful that you’re encouraging your children to take an active role in their homeschooling! I may have to borrow your idea!
