"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.

Evaluation of Set Seven

  • Bible -- K. has learned concepts and memorized verses. I'm glad it is time for our winter break so we can really work on putting these things into practice. We sang Standing on the Promises in church last Sunday and she was poking me and smiling really big while she sang.
  • Writing -- we really had a lot of fun with the games and activities we played during this set. It was a good to do this.
  • Spelling -- K. is becoming more aware of spelling correctly when she writes her stories.
  • Grammar -- reviewing the parts of speech was fun, and she understands them. Using the workbook for writing the novel was at times frustrating because she just wanted to write a story, but once she understood what we were doing, it became a lot of fun. I'm quite sure we will be doing this every year.
  • Reading -- K. is doing very well in reading. She can read anything put before her and sounds out words she doesn't recognize. Using Reading Corner has given us something to do besides read and answer questions.
  • Math -- I think K. had made the biggest improvement in math this year and we gave her a certificate and ribbon for her effort. She has made the connection between repeated addition and multiplication and knows her math facts well.
  • History -- This has been a fun period of history to study. K. understands why the compass, gunpowder, and the printing press were so important.
  • Science -- K. really enjoyed learning about the desert. I'm not sure why it was more interesting to her than some of the other habitats, but it was.
  • Fine Arts -- we didn't do anything with composers, but she has learned to play Old MacDonald had a Farm.
