Wow - I can’t believe we completed 40 days of school already! And during these last 40 days somehow fall arrived. I love fall but winter is right around the corner. And for those of you who know me…I do not love the cold or snow. Last winter was terribly cold and snowy – yet pretty. Anyway, I plan to enjoy Autumn while it is here!
So here’s what we have been doing so far this fall week.
Bible: We learned about Jesus the Rock! Our memory verse is Matthew 7:24. The girls discussed what characteristics a rock has: strong, can not be broken, not bothered by the wind and etc. Jesus is even better a Rock in our lives: “On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand. All other ground is sinking sand.” We discussed how we are to put our trust and lives into the hands of Christ. If we place our trust in Jesus Christ alone and His Word – then we will have built our lives on solid ground that will stand firm in any storm life sends our way! What a Biblical truth we must all hang onto throughout our lives!
History: Benjamin Franklin was our history favorite this week! Let me tell you … I had NO idea how much influence this man had on American until I read a few books from our book basket selection! His accomplishments were amazing.
I love homeschooling because I get to learn along with the girls. I was impressed with how much they remembered even several days later. They competed with one another as I wrote their summary statements on the white board! Boy, I wish I had this great an education at ages 5 and 7 years old.
Book Basket: Here were a few of our book basket favorites.
This video – believe it or not – was biblically based!
Both our Bible and Science lessons this week were about rocks. See if you can get this from your local library.
