We’re halfway through the school year! Praise the Lord!!!
Sharing with you our 2nd Quarter portfolio — a testament of daily relying on God’s amazing grace.
Homeschooling is not easy, and each homeschool family is different. Since we have little people, we know they learn through play. We rarely have them work on textbooks or worksheets, and we also rely heavily on Youtube and other internet resources for educational videos. We make videos to document the things they do and also to reinforce the learning — watching themselves again in Youtube reminds them of what they learned.
This is the simplified portfolio with just the animated pages of our PowerPoint presentation. The PowerPoint presentation we will submit at the end of the year has all the videos (indicated by the “play” button) and audios embedded on it.
As the teacher-mommy, my heart is full after completing this portfolio. Praise the Lord for His grace that sustains us everyday!
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” – Isaiah 41:10 NIV
Learning First Aid techniques means being able to use the knowledge, wisdom and skills from the Lord in order to be ready when there are accidents. Equipping kids with these tips makes them braver when they get hurt and be confident and knowledgeable enough to help others if the need arises.
“No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers.” – Luke 6:43-44 NIV
We talked about this during our morning devotion and decided to make a video about it. I noticed that as I was editing it, the little Kuya was actually memorizing the explanations given by his Ate. What a great way to learn and put God’s Word in our hearts!
It seems we might be making more of these videos soon! So help us God!
It was one if those days when we felt confident we could do an activity like this together. So mommy mixed up some old powedered tempera paint we had while big sister cut up some plastic bags to be their aprons.
We learned about primary and secondary colors, and that after that they ended up with all shades of brown.
They liked it so much that they begged to do it again, and so we did.
Thank You Lord for the gift of colors!!!
Time for the kuyas to learn how to cook!
Simple skills such as measuring, scooping and pouring, then pancake-flipping… it seems so easy but for a 4-year old Ash and 6.5-year old Sam, it’s a messy learning experience. The great thing about it though, is that conquering the challenge comes with a delicious reward — a yummy chocolatey snack of pancake goodness!
Our verse for today:
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” – Galatians 6:9
Have a blessed day everyone!
One of the things that make a homeschooling mommy’s heart full is seeing how the kids grow and learn together…
Praise the Lord for our big sister’s heart! She is an amazing teacher to her little siblings. She is more patient with them than me; she is able to make learning much more fun. Her creativity shines through in how she finds ways to engage the little ones and she had developed a knack in finding the right youtube videos or educational websites whenever I tell her to look for something to help teach a certain topic or lesson. I am excited to see how God will use her talents for His glory as she grows in the Lord’s grace and love everyday!
Happy Teacher’s Day Ate Allyra! We praise God for your life!
