Lord Jesus Christ, the children’s friend,
To each of them Your presence send;
Call them by name and keep them true
In loving faith, dear Lord, to You.

I explained in another post that Phil and I don’t plan on homeschooling our kids, but that doesn’t mean we’ll be leaving all of their education in the hands of their public school teachers.

Letter A Week

Monday, August 27th, 2012

Last week I began our daily lessons. My plan is to use the alphabet to teach something different each day.

This week our lessons for A:

Virtue (not really one but it worked) and Vocabulary wordAbundant

Bible Verse: “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10

Saint: St. Augustine, coloring page HERE. Since Augustine wrote some pretty famous works, our activity for this day was to write a book about Jesus.

Cooking Lesson or Snack: Apple Strudel Muffins

Reading: Angelina and Alice, A Day on the Farm

We didn’t get to the rest of my lesson plan this week which was an Instrument, Composer and the Artist but we had fun with what we did get to.
