"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

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.

United States Geography

We started a U.S. Geography class with the Support Group Co-op we have joined, so I'll add that information each week. This is a two year course, covering 1 state a week, ending with 15 weeks of California History. The goal of the class is for the children to be able to:
  1. name the state by looking at the shape
  2. be able to put the shape in the right place on a map
  3. be able to tell two things about the state
  • Has more than 60 lighthouses
  • Supplies half the lobster eaten in the United States
  • Known as the Pine Tree State
  • The Pilgrims landed there
  • Benjamin Franklin was born there
New Hampshire
  • Granite / Old Man of the Mountain
  • Shipyard
    • the shipyard at Portsmouth built the Raleigh, one of the first 13 frigates the Continental Congress had built
    • today it is a Naval shipyard and repairs submarines
  • Maple Syrup
  • Green Mountains
  • Morgan Horse
  • Charter Oak
  • Gave us Lollipops
  • Woods and Forests cover more than 60% of the state
