What Do They Do For Fun?




What do they do for fun?




When I’m helping parents with a transcript, that one question can open the floodgates! How does your child spend unstructured time? When they are supposed to be working on school, or emptying the dishwasher, what are they doing instead? That can be a great indication of their Fun Factor.




If they enjoy their fun for more than one hour a day, you may be able to translate that into high school credits. Anything involving music, band, handcrafts, or theater can be a fine art credit. Children who love starting or working with a small business, from yard work to online marketing, may earn a credit of occupational education. Children who love creating or fixing computer hardware or software can get credit for computer technology. If children love something that makes them sweat, give them PE credits – whether it’s dance, gym membership, team sports, or individual athletics. Kids who love speech and debate may get a credit each year. Some children will love a specific THING, like mushrooms, birds, or horses. Others will love a specific IDEA, like economics or politics.




Whatever they love, put it on the transcript!   If you aren't sure how to get that fun stuff on paper, I do have a free webinar called "Grades and Credits and Transcripts, Oh My!"




What do they do for fun? I don't know - but YOU do!  And you can often put that on their high school transcript!

  • 15 Reasons to Make a Homeschool Transcript

    A homeschool transcript is part of your child's educational background that you will have to provide when you help them go through the college admissions process. When you homeschool, part of what you are signing up for is documenting your child's educational experiences. It's all part and parcel of the whole genie gig, as they say on Aladdin.

  • Making School Fun

    I tried to incorporate games into our homeschool whenever possible, in order to make school fun. We played math games, art games, and economics games. They would giggle when I wrote on the assignment sheet "Play 30 minutes of Masterpiece" or "Play SAT Game." Making homeschooling fun is a great way to instill the love of learning.

  • 3 Waves of Scholarships

    Scholarships come in waves. They don't all come at once and they don't all come when you receive college admission. And, unfortunately, they don't all come by the time you have to decide on your college, either. To say the least, they certainly don't come when it's convenient, that's for sure.
