Just a quick post tonight: I’ve made some changes to my sidebars, so please take a look and let me know what you think. I’ve added a section on “what we’ve been doing lately”–I’d like to share a little more about how our homeschool works. Perhaps it will give you some ideas to try in your homeschool.
One of the things we do is use Charlotte Mason’s memory verse system; you can see our new verses now on the sidebar. I added portions of our “house rules” to the system as well…I may add hymns later on, for review. For now we just do a “hymn of the month”: We sing a certain hymn every day until we’ve learned at least the chorus and the first verse. (I believe that hymns are very important! They are a part of our spiritual heritage; they teach doctrine, and the Lord uses them to comfort us just when we need it.) I’ve also included information about music (the composer we’re listening to) and will later add info on the books we’re reading, favorite projects, etc, so let me know what you think.
Finally: I’d like to add a “question of the month” post, so please submit your questions. Right now I’m working on a post about homepreschooling gifted children. I’ve also got some curriculum reviews coming up, and later I hope to add lots more posts about art and play.
Please add a comment and let me know what you think and what you’d like to see on my blog.
