First Day of School

So happy to be a homeschooling family!

"Clearly there is an appropriate kind of sheltering. When those who are opposed to homeschooling accuse me of sheltering my children, my reply is always, 'What are you going to accuse me of next, feeding and clothing them?"

---R.C. Sproul Jr.

"In not mentioning God, my public school teachers preached a thundering sermon every day. By implication, they taught that God is not relevant to most areas of life...with every lesson, in every class period, all day every day for twelve years, I was being taught to think like an atheist in the academic realm. And I didn't even know that I was being indoctrinated."

---Christ Schlect, Scriptural Worldview Thinking

Here is our daily memory verse. Its a good one, especially for my Little's-

Matthew 7:12 "Treat others as you want them to treat you"

This is an example of our schedule. Which we hold very loosely. Well not "very", but we have flexibility. I don't force things. I try to work with Cheyenne to bring out the best in her. So if she just isn't "feeling" her mathematics one day, we might switch to writing or reading some more instead.
Th times are just a general pace for me to keep, we don't adhere to them strictly.
This was what we are doing today. Starting at 9 am running through 2 pm.

9:00 Math- Spectrum grade 1 and we also supplement math with manipulatives.

10:00 Handwriting - My Printing Book

Break-time/snack time happens around 10:30 to 11:00

11:00 Telling time and counting by 5's (this is the time after snack time that I teach her whatever extras I feel she needs to work on)

11:20 Bible study- today we read about the Tower of Babel

12:00 Lunch

Free time

1:00 Nap Time for Madi. Cheyenne does arts & crafts or she helps me in the kitchen.

2:00 End day.

I still have some curriculum on order, so once those arrive we will add that at the 1:00 time slot and push arts and crafts to the end of the day.
