"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.

Evaluation of Second Grade, Set Three

  • Bible -- We are doing well completing the work. I just need to remember to keep Bible about a relationship with God and not something to be completed.
  • Math -- K. is grasping the concepts well. She does very well with her addition and subtraction math family facts. Learning by playing games and doing activities is a lot of fun, but sometimes challenging to come up with ideas.
  • Reading -- K. does very well sounding out words. She was reading a coloring book about the Statue of Liberty this morning and sounding out 'enshrined' and ' successive' and 'centennial' and 'exposition'. Her comprehension is at a good level, but I'm glad we have the book Reading Corner to help develop this area.
  • Grammar -- I was very pleased with K.'s listening skills. She is doing well with sentence structure and punctuation. She is getting better (or maybe it is my approach) about assigned writing -- like the shape poem and senses chart. Her dictionary skills are only hampered by her desire to stop and look at the pictures on every page.
  • Writing -- I'm so glad I found Writing Hangups. The projects are fun, but make her think, and work a bit. K.'s interest in cursive writing comes and goes, so I'm glad I am only planning on doing the activities this year, keeping the actual learning to write cursive until third grade.
  • Spelling -- after some "encouragement", K. has started writing her spelling test very neatly.
  • Fine Arts -- I really, really like My Art Book. We did another project this last week. It is a collage and we had lots of fun with it.
  • Science -- what a fun time we had learning about air. There were so many experiments and books to read that was hard to pick.
  • History -- it is good to be able to find plenty of books that are K.'s level to read to her.
