Saturday Homeschooling Update and Resources – Plants and Circuits!

Hello dear ones, and happy Saturday to you all. I hope this finds you doing well. I wanted to give you an update on what we’ve been doing in homeschool as well as some AMAZING new lessons produced by my favorite homeschooling, pastor, and lesson making machine, brother Jim! These are the most organized and detailed lessons I’ve ever found online, and he shares them free of charge. This time he did a series on plants!

Plants Lesson – Introduction – Lesson 1

Plants Lesson – Life Cycles – Lesson 2

Plants Lesson – Photosynthesis – Lesson 3

Plants Lesson – Flowers – Lesson 4

Plants Lesson – Leaves – Lesson 5

I also wanted to share with you the new circuit board Kayleigh has been creating with. Her goal is to invent something everyone needs before she’s 10, so we’re starting with the basics of computer technology. I found this super neat kit that has snap on circuits, along with wires, motors, fans, sirens, music boxes, and lights all which require the circuits to work! She’s created a couple already, and can’t wait to make one of her own. If you have a little one that loves technology or is curious about machinery, these snap on circuit kits are very helpful. If you have an older kiddo, they even have a larger kit thats a bit more complex.

This month we’ve done some assessment testing, nothing too terribly stressful, just to see where she’s at and what we need to improve on. This is the second year we’ve done this, and it’s very helpful. It’s not a timed, pass or repeat a year, nightmare giving state exam. I found some short, manageable assessments online designed for homeschoolers. Now we know we’re further ahead in some subjects that I expected, and right on pace with the others.

Per my handy dandy spreadsheet we’ll be learning about the organization of the animal kingdom this month. We’re also going to continue making our way through the Catechism questions, and learning about the PreReformers. She’s currently on the 6th book of Little House on the Prairie and reading yet again her favorite adventure book, Pilgrims Progress. That’s about all the updating I can think of, I hope these ideas, resources, and links help! Until tomorrow, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
