Our first day of Exploration to 1850 went pretty well (we had some frustration during math, but got everything worked out 🙂 ). It’s hard to start back after summer break, even for me! It also feels very strange to only be teaching one student, but I know that we will adjust.
Ryan and I started our day with his new Bible study book, Boy Have I Got Problems. He will be doing an in-depth study on the book of James.
We then learned about/reviewed the explorations of Leif Ericsson:
We also reviewed the continents and oceans by doing a quick mapping activity:
Followed by a little cursive review:
An introduction to science which will include zoology and botany:
And a math lesson:
We also had our “back to school” meeting tonight after dinner. We reviewed our mission statement, rules, and expectations and Justin prayed for us and the upcoming year. Then the boys opened a few goodies:
when you might
need a little duct
tape 🙂 !
I am very thankful for the opportunity to homeschool another year and even though it’s not always going to be fun or easy, I know that this is God’s plan for our family and that He will be with us all the way!
