Religion- We have amassed a large collection of St Joseph’s picture books and Fr Lovasik books. Last year, we finally started reading through them. I plan on reading two chapters a day of each of these:
Hymns- We like to start with a hymn. Last year, I planned on doing a new hymn every month, this proved too ambitious. Here are the three that we plan on learning this year, spending a few months on each.
Bible Study- We will continue to read the Psalm of the Day. In addition, on Thursdays, we will pre-read the Mass reading for Sunday and discuss. Lastly, we are reading The First Christians by Marigold Hunt.
Science-This year I am adding science to morning meeting. It seems to be the subject I have the hardest time fitting in. My children spend a lot of time studying nature, watching science movies, and learning about creation but it’s time to do some more formal study. We will be reading the following books over the course of the year:
Mathmatics- We are using Life of Fred in conjunction with other math practice. We are reading the following books, all together:
Then Cowgirl and I are covering the following, sometimes the boys join in sometimes not. This really isn’t part of Morning Meeting, but I thought I would share.
**Possibly Percentages and Decimals
I’m hoping to also include some picture books, this site has a really nice list of picture books that teach mathematics.
Hi, I’m Jennifer Elia
I am a homeschooling mom of four blessings, with 3 tiny saints in Heaven. I am currently schooling from preschool through high school. We like to take an eclectic approach to serve each child’s passions, strengths, and needs; while having a big heart for Charlotte Mason style education. This is my 10th year as a homeschool mom.
After working as a public school teacher and college professor, I decided to educate my children at home. I though my training and master’s degree would make homeschooling as simple as pie. However, I quickly realized that homeschooling is not school at home.
This led me on a hunt for the best way to teach and reach every child. Through endless hours of research, and a whole lot of trial and error, I finally hit upon the secret to making a homeschool thrive.
Over the years, I have helped dozens of friends, neighbors, and family members build their own homeschools, now I am on a mission to find and help every mom who is sitting alone in her homeschool room overwhelmed with the thought of, “How do I get this to work?”
