Hello again, friends, I hope this post finds you all doing well. Today, as I did last Saturday, I want to share some homeschooling lessons that teach the essential doctrine we discussed on Tuesday. I also recommend Songs for Saplings Volume 3 which you can find here, these go so well with this area of Bibllical truth.
The greenhouse plants are doing very well, my little gardener has been able to pick us enough lettuce to make an entire salad this week! All the other plants are taking their time, which has been a great way to teach patience. On top of being a green thumb, Kayliegh is preparing to start summer softball. This usually means we bring lessons down a notch, as she’ll now be practicing daily. I was never athletic, so I’m thankful she did not inherit that side of my genetics! Sports teach so many wonderful things, like team work, and sportsman like behavior, so I was relieved when she fell in love with the game.
As we finish up in May, I’m preparing for a new unit in science: Mechanics. There are a ton of camps around her that teach coding, or mechanical ingenuity. Unfortunately, they’re insanely expensive so I’m going to have to get creative! If anyone has any ideas, we’re all ears. Other then that change, history is going to have to be switched around. I wanted to move backwards but it’s not as instructive as I had hoped. Instead, I’m going to start her where we are in the early church series, and will be posting the lessons on Saturdays as we go. English is moving along the same as it always does, the only change is that she has suddenly become a reading machine! Instead of watching anything, or even playing with her clay, she has been spending all her spare time reading. I’m not sure what changed, but I’m not going to complain!
If I’ve never mentioned this special clay, I have to apologize! For anyone who has creative, or inventive, little ones, this is the only clay I buy. It’s not hard to mold like other clays, it mixes well with slime, and dries into a soft foam. I don’t even remember how we found it, but I’m glad we did. This is the type we order here. That’s all the updates I have for today, I hope you’re all having a fantastic weekend! As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
