"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, Reading, Week 37

Genres from our textbook were:
  • fiction
  • historical fiction
Activity: Oops from Games for Reading -- this activity gives your child practice in phonics
  • Cut squares (mine are 2" x 2") and write a letter on each square
    • In the book are five lists going from easy to difficult
    • Each list has 19 - 25 letters for groups of letters
  • Put the squares in a pile.
  • Your child picks up the top square and says the SOUND that letter makes -- NOT the name of the letter.
  • If your child does it correctly, he goes on to the next letter.
  • If he does not give the correct sound, you write "O" on a paper, and he goes on to the next letter.
  • For each mistake you write the next letter of the word "OOPS". If the whole word gets written before he completes the stack of letters, he loses the game.
  • Of course, you'll want to practice the ones he made mistakes on, but probably not during the game.
