Ryan’s First Day

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 🙂 !

  1. We’re using MFW Exp-1850 also this year. I’ll be following to see what all you do with it. BTW—love that Yoda t-shirt. We just had a Yoda-esque grammar lesson today about mixed or inverted sentences. 🙂

  2. Yay! School has officially started for you all! I know you all will do well. Brendan is already doing a fantastic job as a freshman!

    “Thank you, God, for my two wonderful grandsons. Please help them with their studies. Give them wisdom to understand all that they need to learn. Help them to grow in statue and wisdom as Jesus did! And, I pray that Brendan and Ryan will grow to love You with all their heart, soul, mind and strength and that their lives will be to live for You!

    Thank you, Lord, for Amy’s calling to teach Brendan and Ryan. Please give her wisdom, patience and joy as she begins another year of homeschooling!

    In Jesus’ Name
