I have hidden your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You.Psalm 119:11
books we read
I enjoy the book list with our curriculum because it helps Lydia develop a love for reading. The additional books for each week are optional, but I have found that they help “bring to life” the things we are learning, such as the alphabet, counting, and shapes. My Father’s World also offers an excellent selection of topics that help teach Lydia Beth about life, such as friendship, sleep, sharing, and the seasons. Here are a few of the books that we have enjoyed this week.
If you’d like a simple and beautiful way to introduce letters & numbers to your child – please feel free to use these adorable printables. I created them to correspond with My Father’s World Curriculum | Voyage of Discovery. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
the curriculum we use
Whenever I was choosing a homeschool curriculum, I leaned heavily on the guidance of my sister, Angie, at Fresh Wanderings. She had already been homeschooling her children for 13 years and had tried multiple curriculums and even supplemented her own throughout the years. She strongly advised that I use My Father’s World and I am so glad that I did.
“My Father’s World Christian homeschool curriculum combines the best of Charlotte Mason’s ideas, classical education, and unit studies with a biblical worldview and global focus. They have worked hard to make homeschooling as easy as possible with their God-centric curriculum mirroring the Greco-Roman classical approach of grammar, logic, and rhetoric.” You can read about their philosophy here.
