Homeschooling Works for ME!~Mainly a day in the life BLOG for my Homeschooling Team

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Just started this year with Homeschooling my child and what a BLESSING it is!!!! We enjoy working together and I like to make learning FUN!!!! We start our day out with prayer ~that God would open our hearts for what He wants to teach us that day and then we do Bible Devotions{ a reading of Scripture from the Bible and a story from a Bible devotions book that follows the Scripture and then a few questions {for comprehension}. Then our basic books for basic skills and then writing practice and at the end~ my son chooses a topic he wants to learn about & then discuss! It is so much FUN to plan and all the creativity I can think of that go into my lessons is such a great outlet! God really put together a great combination of this teacher and little eager learner! We both LOVE it!!!!! ~~~ A toast to our Homeschooling Team from Pre-K to High School~ it is A WONDERFUL JOURNEY!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Great schedule! Wish I had more creativity, but I try to keep some of it very hands-on other than stuck in workbooks. The blend is good!
