|New poetry book!|
What we have done so far this week, well we always start out with scripture and a Bible lesson, reading literature books and asking questions, sometimes doing copy-work, and sometimes draw a picture about the story we are reading. We continue to explore world history and animals of the world. Of course always math and spelling, but those spelling words are incorporated with books we use. This week instead of reading our read-aloud books at our table we are reading them on the couch or around the table enjoying a snack or coloring a picture related to the story. In near future, we will do some tea parties, but first a tea set is needed. We are doing weekly art projects and used some of our math skills while cooking. Yesterday, we had a family afternoon date to go see The Peanut's Movie, what better way to start the week!! Today, we are baking up brownies and will have story time with them!
Our goal is to make learning a part of our life, to make it fun, so it is life long. My goal is not to make scholars, though if that happens great, but the goal is to raise my children who God has made them to be, they are not my projects, they are little human beings. I believe if I am doing my best and letting God lead, He will bless our homeschooling. So if we don't get something checked off our to do list, or something doesn't go according to plan, or they are just not getting what they are suppose to be learning, well that is OK! There is tomorrow to try again or relook at it and go about it in a different way. That is how we keep peace in our homeschooling. Our homeschool, will not look like yours and vice-versa, that is what makes homeschooling so great!
