A thought on education.

"Education is not filling a bucket, but lighting a fire."-William Butler Yeats
A definite goal I'm striving for!

2nd Day is Complete

Ahhhh, we have finished the second day. The sniffles and the crud have decided to visit our house, so after a night with mom getting a little sleep we have perservered and made it through our second day.

We started our day with Devotions. We did everything that was listed here, but also added our poetry which is Favorite Poems Old and New by Helen Ferris. The last couple of years I have gone with Ambleside Online Poetry Selections, but poetry is not my strong point and we weren't finding it enjoyable. (Except for Year 1).

Caleb did:
Math: Math U See Epsilon-Review & drills
Science: Experiment
Literature: King Arthur (read-aloud)
Biography: John Paul Jones
Literature: King Arthur
Free Read: The Incredible Journey by Sheila Burnford

Hopefully in the next day or two we will begin the Excellence in Writing SWI-A.

Destini did:
Math: Math U See Alpha-Review & drills
Science: Apologia Exploring Creation with Botany
Phonics: Phonics Pathway review
Copywork: 3 sentences from reading.
Literature: King Arthur

I am hoping to have a more rested night and off to an early start in the morning!

Back to School 2008-2009!

Whew! I have survived the first day of schoolfor 2008-2009! I still don't have everything laid out yet for the trimester and am still having to look for boxes with our school books in them. Here is what we did today.

Morning Devotions:
Bible: Two Year Reading Bible(NIV)-Old Testament Reading
Devotional Book: Prayer Journal for Kids by Freddi Trammell
Hymn: Just Over in the Gloryland

Math: Math U See Epsilon-Review and drills
Science: Apologia General Science
Biography: John Paul Jones: The Pirate Patriot
Geography: Child's Geography Volume 1 by Ann Voskamp

Math: Math U See Alpha and drills.
Phonics: Phonics Pathways-Review
Copywork: Three sentences from today's phonics reading.
History: Can't You Make Them Behave King George? by Jean Fritz
Geography: Child's Geography Volume 1

For History I am combining Caleb & Destini and they will be doing a modified version of Pre Year 7. We are using This Country of Ours for American History and Abraham Lincoln's World for World History. For Literature (our read aloud) we will be reading Story of King Arthur and His Knights by Howard Pyle.

We will be adding to this in the next week and also Chantry will be starting the 3 R's. As we add new items to our schedule I will also blog about it.
