Homeschool Journal: January 20th, 2012
In my life this week… It was a more calm week than some, but it was also a more rough week than some. The first part was harder than the last half.
In our homeschool this week… we talked a lot about chemical reactions and the 1800s. And yes, my children are 4-8 years old.
Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…
I am inspired by… Michelle at The Holistic Homeschooler
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing… We're hoping to go to the ballet on Saturday- Sleeping Beauty. Should be fun! It'll be just us girls, too!
My favorite thing this week was… our hymn study. Both weeks of our hymn studies have been great! Everyone has gotten more out of it than I ever though!
What’s working/not working for us… Definitely the Charlotte Mason approach- shorter lesson times, variety of topics, it's great!
Questions/thoughts I have… If you use CM, what do you use for copy work and dictation?
Things I’m working on… I'm always and forever working on Sunday School lessons, ladies' Bible studies, and Girl Scout stuff. But I'm also working on our lesson plans for the coming week- looks like our studies of the 1800s will continue- Louis Pasteur and Samuel Morse!
I’m reading… The Witness by Dee Henderson
I’m grateful for… My family! They are my best friends and my biggest support system!
I’m praying for… my children's salvation!
