Preparing Your Child for the ACT/SAT
Are you worried about how well your children will do in high school? What about those foreign words called the SAT or ACT? One thing you can do during your children's high school years is prepare them for the SAT or ACT test, especially if they are geared toward attending a college or university. Scholarships are often given to homeschool children with good SAT or ACT test scores. Some of the resources below are as easy as one math problem a day or one new vocabulary word a day. So, start researching these websites now and your children will be well ahead of the game!
The Bible talks about testing, too:
1) God tests our hearts for obedience.
"And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove (test) thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no." Deuteronomy 8:2
2) If it passes the test of goodness, hang on to it!
"Prove (test) all things; hold fast that which is good."
1 Thessalonians 5:21
