One of the glories of home education is finding curriculum that works best for your students! I am thankful for the opportunities to get to explore the many options available. Recently I discovered this Primer for beginner readers. I LOVE it! I have had several students who have struggled with learning to read and this is a very helpful tool for those students and one busy mama! It explains each lesson plan with specific detail so all you as the teacher have to do, is teach!
Lydia and Abigail both proudly display their cursive handwriting! Abigail is just learning to read these words while Lydia is reviewing and making great leaps of growth in her reading! Lydia recently read two whole verses out of 1 Samuel chapter 8! We are so proud of them!
Below, Julia shows off a flower she made during science. We use the Apologia curriculum for science and it is filled with all kinds of fun projects for the students to do. We enjoy these as they help solidify and bring to life the lessons they have learned. This is just a sample of what we do each day. I am blessed to be able to keep my children home and teach them the fundamentals so they will be prepared for life as adults! It is so rewarding to look at these munchkins and know that you are the one who taught them to read so that they can, in turn, learn ANYTHING! I love to watch their minds grow each and every day. And I especially love to know that they are learning things that will honor God as we get to focus on character building as well as "the three R's"!
