"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, Science, Set Five

This time K.'s project was to create a bug and tell about it. I had her go through boxes of saved stuff -- soap bottles, tubes, cartons, cans, foam trays, etc. -- and pull out something to use for a head, a thorax, and an abdomen. I helped her attach them together. We made legs and wings and attached antenna. Then (because she doesn't like messy fingers) I covered it all with newspaper dipped in starch. Then she painted it. Her bug is called a Colton. I gave her eight questions to answer about the bug. Such as: where does it live, what does it eat, how does it defend itself, what is it's life cycle. She made a poster to answer these questions. She never really got excited about making the bug, but she liked making the poster.
