What Have We Learned So Far?
We have three weeks of school under our belt. Praise the Lord and Hallelujah for that!
We had a History Quiz today…they all did very well. We have been studying Creation, Adam & Eve, Jubal and Tubal-Cain, Noah and the Ark, Ice Age and Dinosaurs. Great truths from The Bible have led our History lessons. (Mystery of History curriculum)
In Bible we are studying what Truth is and how we can know it. How does God speak to us? Although God tells us much about Himself in the Bible, how did He show us that everything He said about Himself is true? If someone’s beliefs include the idea that God does not exist, how might they answer such questions as “Where did the earth come from?” and “Where did I come from?” and “Why am I here?” (Apologia: What We Believe Curriculum)
Math is that steady subject that always requires endurance. I am usually met with these kinds of questions from the kids, “Mom, can I only do half of the math warm-up sheet?” or “Mom, can we skip math today? I promise I will do two lessons tomorrow.” NOPE, I don’t think so. Math was not my strong area as a kid, so I am probably a “math-meanie,” but I make them do all the math warm-up problems, and I make them do all of the problems, and they have to correct them on their own after I have checked them…..I need them to stay on top of their math!!! And today was a test in math for the girls. (Saxon curriculum)
Science continues to go well; we all enjoy learning about botany! I am learning right alongside my kids in this subject. I don’t know the parts of a seed…or dicots and monocots…or all about germination, but we are learning TOGETHER!! Lots of youtube videos to help us!!! (Apologia Science: Creation With Botany)
Language Arts is taken at Timothy Ministry, and I am so glad I signed the kids up for it. I can tell it is going to be helpful for keeping us on track. We are studying prepositions, beginning to write some, and doing lots of reading.
Ruby and Molly have Kidzplace practice each week and are doing a great job learning the moves in order to lead Worship Time in Kidzplace next month.
Ruby is doing great at piano. She practices daily and seems to enjoy it.
Molly started sewing this week. Her first project is a quilt; I am sure it will turn out lovely.
And Mack starts football this Saturday and then will have Tuesday practices.
LOTS going on to fill up our weeks! Thankful for homeschooling. As if having kids isn’t a major part of the sanctification process, throw trying to educate them in the mix, and you have yourself one needy lady….me! Lots of prayers fill up my week….”Lord, please help me be patient today (i.e., not strangle anyone). Amen.”
