"Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew,
like showers on new grass,
like abundant rain on tender plants."

Deuteronomy 32:2

Courses of Study

To view the Course of Study for each grade level, you can click on the "Course of Study" label
or "Search This Blog" for the specific grade level you wish to see.
To date, I have courses of study completed for kindergarten through fourth grades.

Newsletter Articles

In 2013 the Lord started me producing a newsletter for the homeschool group we are a part of. Every other month I write an article on a topic the Lord has put on my heart. I've decided to add these articles to this blog. I hope you will find encouragement through some of my ramblings. You can click on the label "Newsletter" to find the articles.

Kindergarten, Math, Week 38

  • Fractions: Halves of a set
    • We went into the kitchen and I pulled out sets of things: forks, recipe books, bowls, spices, etc.
    • K. divided each set in half
  • Calculator: Make numbers
    • I said or wrote a number and K. punched it into the calculator
    • Then she punched in numbers and read them to me
  • Fractions: One-Half
    • I had printed some manipulatives: a pizza, a pie, a chocolate candy bar (I put some figured contact paper that I had on the back side to make them durable)
    • I showed these and we talked about one-half
    • I had made a worksheet showing how to write 1/2. Explaining the denominator tells how many equal parts are in the whole and the numerator tells how many parts we are talking about. I had made four circles on the paper and divided them in half, coloring each side a different color. Then asked, "How many parts (of this circle) are yellow?" This gave K. the opportunity to write the fraction 1/2.
