"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.

Thrid Grade, Grammar, Set Four

We started out this set of weeks by completing her essay on the water slide she invented. K. completed a senses word web and used the thesaurus. This is the final copy:

     The big Silly Slippery Slide is the most thrilling water ride in the world! You will go flying down the 20 foot slide, and water splashes on your face as you zoom over the 6 foot hill round two curves, and float, bob, and splash in the pool you land in.
     If you ride the Silly Slippery Slide, you will find it so thrilling, it's the only water ride you will want to ride!

We completed chapter 4 in Painless Jr. Grammar -- prepositions, conjunctions, and interjections.

Writing Project: Persuasive Letter
  • I wrote a letter to K. from a pretend girl telling her that the book club I was in was going to read A Bear Called Paddington. I told her I thought the book silly and wondered if she thought I should read it.
  • I had K. write three reasons she likes the book.
  • Then she did word webs on two of the ideas.
  • She used them to write a persuasive letter back to the girl.
