"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.

Third Grade, Math, Set One

  • Bedtime Math -- because I've been saving these for a while, we do three a day; Bedtime Math e-mails a math problem each day. There is a paragraph about a topic, then word problems that have something to do with the topic. There are three or four different levels of math problems.
  • The first day we completed a project called Agriculture Counts. In this we sorted and counted the number of different animals in a bag of animal crackers, made tally marks, which we turned into a chart.
  • We have done the first three lessons of Professor Pig. Each lesson has a few games to re-enforce the concept, and we have been playing them a lot. The chapters deal with:
    • Magic Numbers -- numbers that add up to 10
    • Magic Numbers plus one -- numbers that add up to 11
    • Magic Numbers plus two -- numbers that add up to 12
  • I found the book, Right In Your Own Backyard: Nature Math at the thrift store. It is part of the I Love Math series by Time-Life, published in the early 1990's. This book was a good review for starting our school year, and covered many topics, such as
    • even/odd numbers
    • patterns
    • shapes
    • addition
    • subtraction
    • categorizing
    • estimating
    • reading charts
    • temperature
    • measuring
