May 2013 Earn Your E.A.R.S.

mickeyhead May 2013 Earn Your E.A.R.S.

Welcome to the May 2013 edition of Earn Your E.A.R.S.! The Enriching Academic Reward Series, or E.A.R.S., is an achievement program designed to encourage kids to continually reach for academic success.

As a homeschooler, I emphasize learning. I do not stress getting good grades, and so my children do not always appreciate the value of a high score. I would rather see them grasp concepts than celebrate or despair over rankings. E.A.R.S. is a way to stimulate students to do their best. It motivates them to complete their assignments and gives them the desire to do more. E.A.R.S. is not a standalone curriculum; it enhances students’ current course loads and rewards their diligent efforts.

Earn Your E.A.R.S. is open to all skill levels. If you registered your children last year, you are still in the system and do not need to sign up again. Like last year, the program will run August through May of each school year and will take the month of December off.

Here’s how Earn Your E.A.R.S. works:
1) Register your students by submitting the below form or by clicking here. (Also available on navigation bar at the top. Those who register after the 5th of each month will NOT receive an assignment until the following month.)
2) Magical Mouse Schoolhouse will email your assignment by the 5th of each month.
3) Have your students complete and return the assignment by the last day of the month to receive an incentive reward. Please note that Magical Mouse Schoolhouse will NOT assign grades. We are interested in completion and education.
4) Students who complete ALL NINE MONTHS’ assignments will receive a Certificate of Completion and small “graduation” gift in June.

Are you ready to Earn Your E.A.R.S.?

Today’s Takeaway:
Register your students for the Earn Your E.A.R.S. program by submitting the below form.

To enter more than 6 children, please use an additional form. For less than 6 children, please place an X in empty fields.Thank you!

    Thank you for sharing this. I was a teacher for several years in the public school system. I am currently a stay at home mom, but will return to teaching. I am so tired of the government telling us to “perform, perform, fear form!” Kids don’t retain the information they study for tests, but get high scores. This doesn’t sound right to me either.

      Thank you, Jamie! I have found with my kids that applied, interactive learning is very effective (especially when the subject matter is Disney!)!

    This is wonderful! I’m going to send a link to my neice in law who is a teacher. I bet she would love this for her kids (her own….that is…..) Thank you!
