Homeschooling Resources and Answers News

Beloved, I just wanted to give you this link which has been a tremendous blessing to me when creating our weekly lessons.

http://searchcreation.org

This search engine looks through creationists websites, giving you all the needed information on any given topic without needing to wade through secular websites.

Also, yesterday I missed posting Answer News show from Thursday. I’m so sorry this has happened two weeks in a row, I’m going to get the hang of this eventually!

I hope these are blessings to you all, my dear brethren! As always, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Saturday Worksheets – Ants and More

#homeschooling

Hello brothers and sisters in Christ! I have the blessed pleasure of sharing with you more of Pastor Jim’s homeschooling lessons. The reason I adore these lessons is not just that they’re wonderfully educational, and gripping for younger learners, but that brother Jim uses every opportunity to bring this lesson back to the fact that God is the creator. Any lesson where I can bring things back to God is a great lesson!

Lesson 1 – Ants Living Together

Lesson 2 – Growth Stages

Lesson 3 – Ants Body Parts

Lesson 4 – Adult Ants

If you’re homeschooling older kiddos I thought this link below was pretty exciting. AiG has online courses where your youth can learn from their PhD scientists!

Unfortunately Kayliegh caught a really nasty bug this week (side effect from daddy working in the pediatric part of the hospital) so we didn’t make it very far through her copy work scriptures. She’s finally starting to feel better, so I’m sure next Saturday I’ll have plenty of scripture work to share with you all. Until then ‘Go serve your king’ just kidding…that’s not my catch phrase. Be good Berean’s, beloved brethren, and study to show yourselves approved.

Saturday Worksheets – Pillar of Fire

Currently, in our homeschooling curriculum, I’m taking Kayliegh through the Bible by focusing on the people as we go. She’s 7, so this isn’t an in-depth discussion or word study. However, what I’ve been trying to do each day is to bring out an aspect of the Gospel to her with each chapter we go through. It’s not difficult to follow that scarlet thread throughout the Old Testament, and along with learning scripture, sentence structure through the copy work, I like to add architectural lessons that match where we’re at.

Exodus 14-15-16

Exodus 14-13-14

Exodus 13-21

I hope these copy work pages are a blessing, beloved brethren, and if there’s ever a verse you’d like put together for your own lessons please don’t hesitate to ask. As always, friends, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Kayliegh’s Question #1

Beloved, here it is again, the ever rare second post! I’ve been fielding extremely deep, over my head, questions from my daughter since the day I got saved. I’m not sure if the difference was her cognitive ability, as she was nearly five years old at the point of my salvation, or if the constant proclaiming of this great God continues to peak her interest. Either way, before salvation all the questions were warm and fuzzy such as “does God think jokes are funny too?” and now they are “If God is sovereign do we decide to move, or does He move us?”


Just as a side note, my favorite question from Kayliegh came shortly after Justin and I were saved. He was reading us the Ten Commandments and she was so confused. It went something like this…

Justin: “Though shalt not commit adultry…” polite interruption from Kayliegh…

Kayliegh: No adult trays? Just kid trays?

I’ll take that question ten times over the ones she usually asks!


I’m going to start writing down her questions and the responses we give her down and posting them for your advice on each matter. I’m also very curious as to whether or not any of you encounter similar questions from your little ones, and how you handle them. Some days she asks passing questions, and other days are filled with theological inquiries. Yesterday was the latter. It certainly keeps me on my toes! Here’s one of the questions she asked…

“If God knew Satan would tempt Adam and Eve and cause the fall of mankind, why did God create Satan?”

What do you think, beloved brethren, how would you have answered this question? What scriptures would you have gone too? Is this a question you’ve been asked, or asked yourself, before?

Saturday Worksheets – Caterpillars by Pastor Jim

Beloved friends I am so very excited about sharing with you today a wonderful homeschooling lesson plan created by Pastor Jim over at The Domain for Truth.

There are four links in his series on learning about caterpillars. What I love about these lessons is that they are centered on God the Creator. They would be wonderful for any of the homeschooling families out there, or parents who want to take advantage of Christmas break to teach their little ones!

I want to say a huge thank you to our brother in Christ, Pastor Jim, for his diligence in creating these lessons. They really are an awesome resource!

Saturday Worksheets – Thankfulness

Hello dear ones, and happy Saturday! It’s been a while since I was able to make some worksheets, so today I have some copy work for you. These are scriptures revolving around thankfulness, as this coming Thursday is Thanksgiving here in America.

If there’s ever a specific type of worksheet or verse that would be helpful to you, brethren, as homeschoolers, parents, or Sunday school teachers, please don’t hesitate to ask. As always, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Colossians3 15-16

Ephesians5 19-20

Saturday Worksheets – The Sun

I didn’t realize that I had skipped over the Sun in other worksheets for this series, I’m so sorry about that brethren! Here I’ve attached a worksheet for the Sun along with a maze. There is also some scriptural copy work. Of course, if there’s anything specific that you would like to have so homeschooling, Sunday school classes, or other lessons, please feel free to ask.

There is also a wonderful diagram with more information here. You can also find some excellent videos here for creation science for youngsters. As always, beloved, be good Bereans and study to show yourselves approved.
