"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, Writing, Set Five

Along with continuing to learn the capital letters in cursive, we worked on writing a compare/contrast essay.

I picked up The Bossy Gallito at the library and noticed its similarity to The Old Woman and the Pig. We used these two stories for our essay.
  • (week 1) After reading both stories
  • (week 2) we made a Venn diagram to show how they were alike and different.
  • (week 3) Then we wrote a topic sentence for the compare paragraph and another for the contrast paragraph.
  • (week 4) Then we wrote the body of the paragraphs.
  • (week 5) We wrote the closing sentences.
Now I've put it away, but I will bring it back out in fourth grade so we can add opening and closing paragraphs.
