WELCOME!

Welcome! I am using this blog to share our family's homeschooling thoughts and experiences.

THIS SCHOOL YEAR (2016-2017): We will be using a variety of different curriculum this year, with Notgrass' Uncle Sam and You as our main History, Bible and Literature focus. Our oldest, EL, is in 12th grade this year, but has special learning needs due to autism. JJ is our youngest, an active boy with Tourette Syndrome. He is in the 8th grade.

Please feel free to follow along....

Just the Basics

Nothing really exciting happened this week in our school work. We didn’t really do any fun art projects or go on a field trip, because this week was.... well, let's just say it was a challenging week over all. So, we mostly just got the basics done - but that’s okay. Some weeks are like that.
One thing I would like to mention, however, is that we started going through the Gospel of Matthew this week and, in order to help the kids visualize what might have happened during those times, we watched The Visual Bible, found here on You Tube:

The Visual Bible - Gospel of Matthew

Oh... and we also played in GOO this week... LOL!



NOTE: Goo is made with cornstarch, water, and food coloring. Its a fun time of sensory play, especially for your hands-on learners.
