"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 39

  • Fractions: One-Half
    • Practiced dividing things in half (tortilla, graham cracker, apple, etc)
    • Practiced writing 1/2
    • Reviewed what the denominator and numerator mean
  • Calculator: plus 1, minus 1
    • Practiced plus with the calculator: 1 + 1 (2) + 1 (3) + 1 (4) etc.
    • Practiced minus with the calculator: 10 - 1 (9) - 1 (8) - 1 (7) - 1 (6) etc.
  • Fractions: One-Third
    • Used manipulatives I had printed for thirds (pizza, pie, chocolate bar).
    • "One Tuesday we had pizza for dinner, and it was just Papa, you, and me, so we divided the pizza in 3 equal pieces. This is called thirds. If we each got 1 piece how much would you get? (one third) This Tuesday night I went to Bible Study, so I told Papa to eat my piece of pizza. How much did Papa get? (two thirds) Do this with all the manipulatives.
    • Made a worksheet with four questions. How many pieces are yellow? etc. so K. could practice writing fractions.
  • Game: Fast Track (subtraction), see Math, Week 27 for instructions
  • Problem Solving: Graphs
    • Made a line graph.
    • I printed a picture of chocolate candy from the internet.
    • K. counted how many pieces there were of white chocolate (made tally marks), milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and chocolate with nuts.
    • Made line graph with the information.
