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.
