Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this:'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these.
I can't believe we are almost half way through the school year. With this being my first year of homeschooling I have determined that this was the best decision to make, well that God has told me to do. I have loved having my children home with me, and being able to be their teacher is a blessing. I love it! When I first started I was thinking about homeschooling until they started high school but I may be changing my mind about that!
One thing that I plan on doing is to finish the curriculum we already have. For example, my daughter is only half way through her first book of math (there are two books). So, instead of buying the next grade I will just finish up where we left off. She will be in fourth grade next year but will be using third grade math. Math is a subject that my daughter has to work a little harder in, while the language arts is where she excels.
It will really help my daughter because she will be able to finish the third grade math, and feel comfortable moving onto fourth grade. I do not want my daughter to feel rushed; I want my daughter to know what she is learning before we move on to the next level.
