Homeschooling 2010

Heritage Studies 3 (Sweet Land of Liberty) Bob Jones with Worktext

Science 3 Bob Jones

Spelling (Using part of Spectrum's spelling and part of A Beka's Grade 4)

English - Bob Jones 4

Art- Learn to Draw books Published by Walter Foster

We've been on a relaxed schedule these past few weeks....but we are buckling down now. We're off to a great start! The thing I love about homeschooling is the flexibility. This year, Savannah will sit in a traditional classroom 2 days a week, during the time I teach in the preschool class. She will be with kids slightly younger so one day a week she will be self directed in her studies and one day a week she will be participating in the extra curricular type activities the teacher is scheduling for Fridays. She is super excited and I am anxious to see how she does. I think she'll thrive!

Whether you homeschool, private/christian school or public school your children, my prayer is that you are teaching them about the foundational principles taught in God's Word. It's our responsibility as parents...and it's a big one!

Happy schooling!

Looks great, Gina! We use Horizons Math for Daniel & we've used Bob Jones in the past with Bethany, both great curriculums. I'll be praying for your year. I'd appreciate your prayers for our homeschooling year. Right now, with our move and all, I'm feeling like a lawn mower in need of a tune up. Just running abit rough.
