Today Ryan went back to work after having 7 weeks off. I loved having him home, but he’s excited to learn how to fly a helicopter and I’m excited to start our new curriculum.
I’m going to utilize our Bible like we never have before. We are going to center all our learning around it. Spelling, language, history, science, government, reading, music, etc…
Here’s how it’s going to work.
We have family worship time every night. During this time we sing a hymn (same one for a week), Ryan reads a chapter of the Bible and we discuss it, then the kids have a weekly verse to memorize. All the while I’m taking notes on the discussion and writing down words that are new to the kids (keeping it to only a few and building on them each night). Then, the next day we use that information to create a school day.
I’m so excited about this!
We’re still feeling this out so I may stumble, but I know this is going to be good. Also, Math may be the exception – at least for now while I’m learning how to make our day out of The Word.
Many Christians, even fellow homeschoolers, have said we can’t possibly have success with this. It just goes to show that even though a lot choose to homeschool, the government still holds the corner on their thinking.
It isn’t about knowing a little on everything. It’s about knowing a lot on what counts.
I’ll be blogging…
