Homeschooling Journey Day 36

Proverbs 4:12-15 When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble. Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life. Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men. Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.

Today in my little homeschool class the girls came over to do math. I enjoy teaching them, although I wonder if they love it or hate it. I do not let them just get by with what ever thy put down as a grade, if I feel as though they rushed through it or just aren't getting it I take the time to go back over it and let them do again. Math is one thing that you will use in this world and knowing how to use it will help. Today the oldest worked on how to add your hours and figure out your wages from your hours, and how to get your pay from piece work plus minimum pay for hours worked.  The middle child is working on turning fractions into decimals.  The youngest girl is working on multiplication.  She is learning her 2's and 3's.  We use Landmark Freedom Baptist Curriculum for the oldest girls math and a mixture of different things for the youngest.

As for me teaching my little one today we read from the The Jesus Story Book Bible A New Beginning from Genesis 6-9.  It tells of how Noah being a friend to God tried to warn the people of the coming Flood and no one listened.  God tells Noah to build an Ark and to take all the animals into it and his family to be saved from the flood.  The people still didn't listen and all perished except for those on the Ark.  We also read A is for Adam about the letter P which stands for PLAN which God always had for us.  He knows that we will sin and not listen just as He did in Noah's day, so he continues right on with the Plan He has made for us. We then started Return to the Willows which is about some adventures that Mole, Ratty Toad, and Badger encounter. Last but not least on the reading list today is Where's My T.R.U.C.K . My little loves this one we have read it over and over in the past 2 weeks and he is getting to where he is repeating the story back to me, and spelling of course T.R.U.C.K.  

We then moved on to doing the fun stuff, school work.  We learned bout letter P, and our colors today.  He knows his colors but I found some cute little pumpkins to color your basic colors.  We then put them on a construction paper to display.  Then he took a larger pumpkin and put stickers on it to decorate it.  We do not celebrate halloween so, we do not carve pumpkins.  The stickers were cute on his paper pumpkin.

All in all we have had a very productive day.  Now its time to get ready for church.  A perfect ending to a perfect day.

My prayer is that this may be an encourage to someone out there not only to read their Bible but to also join in on a homeschooling journey of their own.
