"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

or "Search This Blog" for the specific grade level you wish to see.

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 Six

We continued learning the upper case cursive letters.

We started the Young Novelist Workbook. This is the third year we have done this program, and I am getting better at allotting the time needed and in presenting the work. K. is getting better at coming up with ideas and answering the questions.

This year I decided to print out the entire workbook in sections, but have K. write in a spiral notebook so I don't have to print the workbook again.

We started with the "Create Awesome Characters" section. We spent two weeks developing the main character, supporting character, and villain.

The next two weeks we worked on the "Make Up Your Story" and "Outline Your Plot" sections.

When K. was bogged down with the plot, we took a couple days to complete the "How to Write Really Good Dialogue" section.

The last we we worked on the "Map Your Setting" section.
