Reading- check! JB6 is now reading through books smoothly and with ease. Even her brother and sister enjoy listening to her now!
In her free time today, JB6 studied the different types of animals in Antarctica. She particularly liked the Elephant Seal, the Harp Seal, and especially the Weddell Seal which we learned can remain under water for up to 40 minutes and can also break through the ice from underwater.
We read Freddie’s Farm, Penguins, It’s Too Soon, and 4 stories from The Complete Book of First Experiences (one of my personal favorite books to use when teaching reading skills!)
Basketball skills (taught by “Brahaw”) Girls learned and practiced the proper technique to dribbling a basketball. AN4 LOVES Basketball!
I always claimed that I could never homeschool, and I was probably right. I doubt that I could do it without a firm belief that "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" (Philip. 4:13).
Currently we have four students in our Family Forest Academy; I have taken a "vacation" from my work as a Registered Nurse to engage in the full time adventure of wife, mom and teacher. One of our children has a peanut allergy which gives me the additional job title of child safety advocate.
I blog because I never want to take for granted a single moment of this crazy life we live and I find reflection to be good for the soul.
"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though working for the Lord, not for human masters." Colossians 3:23
