Bible Verse Printables Letter X

RLRS Letter X

 

Our Raising Lil’ Rock Stars Bible Verse Printables for the Letter X are available to download for free! X is in eXalt! This set is based on Luke 14:11, “For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”  This is a tricky verse to explain and we spent lots and lots of time with the story and our discussion time.

Here’s a peek at the work she did at home.

Coloring ~  I love coloring time because it gives such a great opportunity for discussion, which we did a lot of for this verse.  While she colors I read her the story about the verse {included in the printable pack} and we discuss the meaning. I didn’t get a photo of her coloring, this is the page she colored.

Slide11

Cut and Glue the Verse ~ this is a great word work activity for her, identifying words and sounds she knows, as well as the Bible verse as a whole. She uses the printable that has the light gray matching words on it.

All Together Learning

 

Homeschool--89183

 

We do 3 subjects all together and really enjoy our time with our kids all together {most of the time}.

Daddy teaches Mystery of History which is awesome.  We are almost finished with the 1st book and will move on to part 2 when we are done. My kids use the notebooking pages, and my daughter colors the coloring page.  Daddy teaches and I write notes on our board to help guide the kids with their note taking. I love our timeline notebook which is shown below…

History -0977

 

We still love our Heroes of History books.  We finished up reading Ben Franklin and are well into George Washington now. We are still enjoying Liberty’s Kids DVDs, to help deepen our American Revolution knowledge. 

Homeschool -0308

 

You can see our entire World Geography plan here.  We are LOVING this so far.  We have been focusing on South America and are finishing up the last few countries! Here’s a peek inside of their notebooks…

Geography -0968


1st & 4th Together Learning

Ladybug and Krash do 2 subjects together and it is working well!  We do Picture Smart Bible {K-3 Old Testament} and US Geography twice a week.

They absolutely love US Geography and I think it’s because they both really love coloring and they love birds.  Seeing the bird for each state is very exciting for them! We have completed states through Maryland and they each have a beautiful notebook for review!

You can see Ladybug flipping through her notebook in the video below…

We review all the states we have learned each day we do a new one, we use our USA Geography PowerPoint for this.  The PowerPoint show is a favorite and is really great for review.

We have added in a couple more resources to expand our US Geography learning.   The kids absolutely LOVE the awesome USA States song/video by Readeez

You can see a bit of it in action in the video below

 

My kids LOVE this and we listen to it daily now! You can also see Krash playing Stack the States on our iPad.  This is too advanced for Ladybug but she likes to watch. 

Homeschool -0555

    We enjoyed playing Sequence States and Capitals together and will be using this game much more!  If you don’t own this game and are working on states and capitals, I highly recommend it!

    Homeschool -0636

      We are enjoying Picture Smart Bible together and have completed through Numbers and are working on Deuteronomy/Joshua.

      8th Grade

      Homeschool -8893  8th Grade Homeschool Curriculum Choices[3]

      #8thGradeWithPacMan[3]

      Pac is by far my least photographed child because a majority of his schooling is done independently or with his Dad.  All of my photos of his are usually taken during his science experiments, since that’s the most exciting thing to photograph of an 8th grader’s homeschooling!

      He is awesome about including his siblings when possible. 

      8th Grade -0297

      8th grade -0834 

      He is a pretty easy student and we are thankful.  Sure, we have issues, but overall he does what he is supposed to do. His dad oversees his math, spelling and science completely.  I oversee everything else.  Writing is the only subject I am still teaching directly.

      One of my favorite portions of his homeschooling is his reading.  He recently finished Elijah of Buxton.  His favorites are in bold, with Peace Child being the absolute favorite so far.

      Here’s his completed list…

      All of his other subjects are going well, we are pleased with our choices for him this year.


      4th Grade

      Homeschool -8866  4th Grade Homeschool Curriculum Choices[4]

      #4thGradewithKrash[3]

      In order to stay committed to his gymnastics he doubles up on his schoolwork 2 days a week so he can be free to practice the other 3 days. I have recently been coming to the gym for an hour on his break to do a few subjects.   

      4th Grade -0627

      I am WAY low on photos of him during school!  Nothing has really changed, we continue to be pleased with his progress.

      We finished our first novel together, Robinson Crusoe which he loved! We were both sad when the book was finished, it was a perfect fit for him.  We are now reading Mighty Men together, which is a collection of short stories. 

      He also reads books on his own at night and currently reading Revolutionary War on Wednesday.

      His reading list so far this year…

      1st Grade

      I continue to use Lessontrek for her weekly planning and then build her daily work grid from my lesson plan.  She chooses the order of her subjects each day.  She likes to come with me to the gym when I teach Krash so she does some work there too. 

      1st Grade -0491

       

      In no particular order, here’s a recap of her past month.  You can see her very first week of 1st grade in our post here.

      Science

        We have been enjoying her science together.  On a whim I decided to use an Evan-Moor science book and I love it!  It is simple, and has a project at the end of each chapter. One of her favorite topics this past month was leaves.  Here’s she was working on her leaf rubbings, which we turned into leaf friends and a leaf family tree.
        Leaf Friends -0271

       

      After reviewing The Curious Kid’s Science Book we decided to add it into our curriculum and continue to love it.  She chooses one project to do with Daddy per week.  Here she was exploring how different liquids melted.

      Below you can see a peek into a really fun paper flower project.

      1st Grade -0872

       

      I have been letting her choose an animal to study which has been really fun. We finished our fun unit all about FROGS.

      Exploring Frogs Unit Study and Lapbook


      Handwriting

      Handwriting is one of her favorite subjects now and she begs to learn more cursive letters! 

      We are using Logic of English Cursive.  We begin by introducing each letter in the salt tray, she loves this!  We also use the salt tray for review, which is fun and low stress for her since she can easily erase a mistake.

      1st grade -0675

       

      Here’s a video clip of a review time…

       

      She started writing words recently and LOVED this!

      1st grade -0800

       

      She makes a little card after we learn each letter by turning the letter into some sort of shape!  This is our collection recently…

      1st Grade -0577


      Math

      We do a few different things for math and our combination is working beautifully for her.  She continues to LOVE Life of Fred and is finished with book 1 and well into book 2.

      1st grade -0260

      Spielgaben is a great fit for her and we do about 2-3 lessons per week, mostly using the worksheets.  See our recent post here…

      Hands on Math with Spielgaben


      Grammar

      Growing with Grammar and First Language Lessons are both wonderful and she enjoys both.  We use both because they are different, yet similar. 

      Here’s a video clip of her working on her second poem she memorized, Work {she’s using our Poem PowerPoint}.


      Reading

      All About Reading 2 is moving along completed through lesson 24. She is moving along as a reader at a pretty rapid pace now, it’s exciting! She loves the games in the lessons.

      1st grade -0430

       

      Here’s a video peek of her reading her level 2 reader aloud.  She LOVES these stories!

      Ways we supplement reading development…

      We go to the library at least twice a month, sometimes more! Her library books are read daily both independently and aloud!

      1st grade -0227  1st grade -0243

      Before we take books back I ask her to set out her very favorites and I snap a photo and share on Instagram.  These are some recent favorite stacks…

      1st grade -0218 Library Love -0483  Library Love -0799

       

      We are almost finished with The Dragons of Blueland, the final book in the series.  She LOVES these books!  We also started the first Little House on the Prairie book, MUCH to my JOY!!!

      1st Grade -0608

       

      We recently got the Life of Fred Beginning Readers for review and she LOVES them!

      Life of Fred Readers -0537


      We Choose Virtues has been awesome, we are finishing up our last virtue currently!  She talks about them a lot and loves our display!

      1st grade -0680


      Whew!  I think that’s it! It takes me forever to write these posts but they are my favorite to look back on!

      We have recently fallen in love with a new set of books thanks to Educents. They kindly sent us Life of Fred Beginning Readers Set #1 for this review and these books couldn’t have come at a better time! 

      My daughter, who is in 1st Grade, began Life of Fred Math this year and recently finished up Apples.  She LOVES { I mean really loves} it.  When I showed her the stack of reading books all about her beloved Fred and Kingie, she squealed with joy!  She immediately asked to read them and could read them independently!

      Life of Fred Readers -0537

       

      Here’s a video I made of Ladybug reading a couple of the books aloud.  She was reading each book for the first time, you can hear her natural giggles and see her point out things in the books.  She is thoroughly engaged mostly because she had already developed a love for these characters thanks to her Life of Fred Math.

       

      If you are using Life of Fred math with your young child, I highly recommend looking at these books.  I honestly had no idea how she would react to these but her joy far exceeded any expectations I had!  She honestly just loves them!

      Life of Fred Readers -0400

       

      I have even caught my boys picking them up and reading them.  The books, of course, are too easy for my 4th and 8th grader, but that doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy them too!  The Life of Fred Beginning Readers are recommended for ages 4 and up, and I would say a target age range is K-2.  A child who already loves Fred and Kingie will probably love these books the most, because they expand on the stories shared in the math books.
