I stumbled upon this idea and link up a few weeks ago. What a great way to remember and document some of my favorite things from the week, what we did in our homeschool, and even struggles or prayer requests! I'm planning to post on Fridays or Saturdays using The Homeschool Chick's writing prompt.
Here we go… My first Homeschool Mother's Journal post!
Some of our stories/books:
- The Complete Adventures of Peter Rabbit – Jonathan convinced me to read an extra story in this book 🙂
- Milly-Molly-Mandy-Storybook – This has been a favorite. We completed chapter 17 this morning. Jonathan has enjoyed following Milly-Molly-Mandy's adventures. I think he might be a little sad when we finish this book, like when we finished The Uncle Wiggily Storybook.
- Jonathan finished the last two pages in Pathways Day Go By workbook that had corresponding stories in the Days Go By reader. The rest of the workbook is phonics and reading practice. He should be done the first week in July at our current pace. He was very pleased to see his progress this morning.
- Jonathan was learning about counting money using Math Mammoth with Josh last night. He wasn't getting it, so I tried to relating putting dimes and pennies together to make a particular sum with place value, which I introduced to him last week. Suddenly, he got it and his face lit up! I love those moments when something clicks and you see the excitement on your child's face.
- The Ministry of Motherhood by Sally Clarkson – I've been reading through this book and the corresponding Bible verses using the S.O.A.P. study method with GoodMorningGirls.org. Great book so far. I've learned so much about raising my boys and the “gifts” (Grace, Inspiration, Faith, Training, Service) I should be giving them.
