Staying Connected Through Grass Sandals | by Crystal Clark

Every year, as our Japanese American friends head to Japan for a few weeks, we row one of the beautiful Five in a Row books about Japan to stay connected with them on their journey.

The first year, we rowed Grandfather's Journey and mainly talked about family trees. We made a big family tree on the wall and Ezra who was 6 years old at the time, was certain that our Japanese friends were part of our family and came up with the most beautiful explanation for our different heritage.

Little Nino's Pizzeria | FI♥AR with Bo

 - Boaz is 6 years old-

So, I couldn't resist the Pizza Baker and Pizzeria to go along with Little Nino's Pizzeria

A Delicious Meal for We're Going on a Bear Hunt | by Crystal Clark

Eclectic Foundations Language Arts | Review

"A solid foundation is crucial to an excellent education," according to Eclectic Foundations who uses old fashioned textbooks from the 1800s and early 1900's, such as McGuffey's Eclectic Reader, First Lessons in English by Thomas Harvey, and Word Mastery by Florence Akin, to teach Language Arts.

All of these books are available online, but the company merges them into their Language Arts curriculum for an open and go program that covers reading, phonics, handwriting, grammar, poetry, and writing in an easy to use program with a Biblical worldview.

So, will Eclectic Foundations Language Arts Level B provide my child with a solid foundation?

Homeschool Journal | March 2017

In my life this month…
