Imparting a classical education at home. Check out the Edwards Academy.

Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Year 4 Arrived

My Tapestry of Grace Year 4 order arrived!
I can't wait to start planning!

Our kids will learn about Teddy Roosevelt, Helen Keller, Billy Sunday, the Wright Brothers, William Howard Taft, Woodrow Wilson, Fanny Crosby, Joseph Stalin, Vladimir Lenin, Eric Liddell, Warren Harding, Charles Lindbergh, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover and Franklin D. Roosevelt. That's just in the first nine weeks!

Over the course of the year...
Lane will be making a Draw and Caption book about 20th Century Presidents, another about the Space Race, and he will learn the cluster and describe technique in the second half of the year.

Sydney and Hope will write a roaring 20's radio play, practice narrative and expository writing, make a photo essay on inventions, write a realistic story, and spend six weeks studying poetry.

For literature studies we're going to read Homer Price, Mr. Popper's Penguins, Balto and the Great Race, James Herriot's Treasury for Children, The Lily Cupboard, Charlotte's Web (for the nth time!), The Story About Ping, Pippi in the South Seas, Runaway Ralph ... and that's just getting started.

We'll meet heroes of the faith, heroes of world wars, villains and thugs, economic hardship and triumph, and even throw in some fashion studies. It promises to be another amazing journey through time, guided by Tapestry of Grace.
