Our week: April 3-7

Well I’m here at Homeschool Journal now. If you have thought about starting a blog, this is a great place. The people here are so helpful. We had a good week. It was not an eventful one, but we got our lessons in. Art has been fun. We are discussing the elements of art, and line is the first element. We have not done any history this week because we are in trasition and I didn’t want to start … read on, my friend…

This week’s lessons: March 27-31

This was an unusual week because of Princess G’s birthday and because we had to take her to the doctor. She has eczema from head to toe at this time in her young life. We try our best to keep on top of it but this time it really got away from us. She had infection from her hips to her little piggies. It was the worst it has been, and it’s been pretty bad. … read on, my friend…

Last week’s lessons (and still more poetry) Nov. 21-25

I am surprised at the number of poems that have peppered my posts lately. Must be a “season” heehee. Well of course it was a short week in our celebration of Thanksgiving. Princess G asked to read Psalm 100 before dinner. I was very proud of her initiative and she read aloud beautifully. I wish she’d speak up more but she did a great job. While we are on the subject, I thought I’d share … read on, my friend…

Last week’s lessons: Nov. 14-18

As I said a couple of posts back, I’m back to creating my own plans, which I really enjoy. Here’s what went on at our house in the way of lessons. Bible Principle: Law of Love Leading idea: theme from JBC in Ex. 20:1-2 We read the account of giving the Ten Commandments. That was interesting, and we painted “word pictures” to really set the tone. We talked about how the Children of Israel must … read on, my friend…

Last week’s lessons

Last week was fun but not terribly eventful. We worked on our books in art class (aren’t my girls cute?). I love making books so this was really fun. (see the principle in the lesson). In our other subjects it went like this: Bible Principle: Moses was a servant leader. continued our Moses as leader discussion. We talked about the diagrams from JBC showing the difference betweeen leaders and rulers. This was funny to me … read on, my friend…

Simon the ruler

Continuing along our theme this week of dictatorships, we discussed the difference between leaders and rulers. According to Webster’s 1828 dictionary, they are defined as follows: Ruler–any one that exercises supreme power over others. Leader–One who goes first; a guide. (I rearranged these a bit.) There is a marked difference between the two. One seems benevolent and one does not. We discussed the differences and the type of government these two would look like. We … read on, my friend…

daughters and dictatorships

For our Bible lessons we use the Judah Bible Curriculum, which I can’t rave about enough. It looks at the Bible governmentally, that is, who or what is directing, regulating, controlling or restraining men and nations. (JBC doeas a lot for Christian scholarship and learning to study the Bible for yourself too.) It has been such a wonderful time together. This week were are discussing Egypt and their government–Pharoah (dictator), man over man type of … read on, my friend…

What we did last week

Well last week was a challenge. But how is that different from any other week? It takes such a commitment to make sure you have school consistently because there are so many things trying to get your attention. They all seem urgent and they all need to be done NOW!!! So we still got our lesons in so I thought I’d share. History Principle: God uses individuals to further His Story. Leading idea: Moses was … read on, my friend…

This week was our last for the school year. Here’s what we have been up to. Bible: Judah Bible Curriculum (which I can’t say enough good things about)–lesson three is Noah and the covenant God made with mankind. We looked at the promise of Providence and then made a page for her notebook highlighting Genesis 8:8 and a drawing of Noah and the animals getting off the ark. We cut it up into a puzzle … read on, my friend…

last week’s work

Last week was short due to an out of town ministry trip. Some of the things we worked on: place value (see the last post) being internally governed. In our Judah Bible Curriculum we are in Genesis, dealing with man’s rejection of self-government. We did several pages for our notebook on this idea, contrasting what it looks like to be internally and externally governed. She mentioned this idea many times this week, especially when she … read on, my friend…
