School updates

What's been going on in school lately?

Our 5 year old has started cursive writing and doing an excellent job!! I decided to start him on cursive because he is very good with writing his greek alphabet (which is alot more flowy and curvy than our alphabet). He's only been at it a week and has learned l, h, k, t, i, u, e


I've been doing a Revelation study with our 8 year old and we are both enjoying it sooo much! They have many books in the series (Genesis, James, John, etc..). She has been learning alot and it has opened the door to discuss many, many spiritual things concerning heaven and the end times etc. This link lets you look at all the books....


After our trip to Alabama to visit some friends, I was introduced to All About Spelling (thank you Letisha!) I am loving it!! I'm going through it with our 5 and 8 yr old. During the lesson you use magnetic tiles to teach them spelling (phonics) rules.


Our 3 year old has been having fun with the greek alphabet! He knows it better than our alphabet :) Here is a video of the first 18 letters.

alpha, beta, gamma, delta, epslion, zeta, eta, theta, iota, kappa, lambda, mu, nu, xi, omicron, pi, rho, sigma
