Not surprisingly, her favorite activity was reading—anything from a novel to a textbook. (Her Apologia Biology is actually the only traditional-type textbook we use, though.) She also thought she learned well through videos. She also enjoys writing and some computer-based instruction. Hands-on activities tended to be her least favorite (and the assignments she tends to procrastinate on). She really enjoyed these when she was younger, but I’ve noticed that her tastes have changed in the past few years. Since we’re going back to Sonlight Curriculum next year for history and English, I anticipate a great year with all those wonderful books!
This was a fun way to evaluate our year and to get Emily thinking about how she learns best and I plan to make it a yearly tradition.
