One room school house

Homeschooling seems very much like the old one room school house to me.
One teacher to teach all of those different grades.
I feel it especially this year, as I get ready to start our first day of school.

Emma is starting 10th grade and Katie is starting Pre/K.

Emma's coursework:

Apologia Chemistry taught by a tutor in Madison.
Geometry using Math U See.
Great Books (400 A.D. to 1600 A.d.)
History (400A.D. to 1600 A.D.)
English on the internet at the Potter's School.
Latin using Henle with a teaching syllabus.

Soccer team, FLAME choir, cooking lessons (provided by mom) and guitar lessons fill out the extras.

For Katie:

Laura Berquist Kindergarten syllabus
Child Size Masterpieces
Bible Stories
Teach your child to read in 100 lessons
Rod and Staff Workbooks
Kumon Workbooks
Ready Writer
Handwriting without tears
chalk, jump rope, paint, markers.
The Harp and Laurel Wreath (for poems)
Books, books, books.

Katie will participate in gymnastics again this year.

While I have been typing this entry, Katie has asked me twice if we can start school.
That's fun to have such a willing little student, isn't it!
My other student is still sound asleep.

Here is the prayer I learned eleven years ago from Calvert School.

As we come to school today
Let us not forget to pray
To God who kept us
Through the night
And woke us with the morning light.

Help us Lord, to love thee more,
Than we ever loved before.
In all we do,
In all we say,
To grow more loving


We will say this every morning!

Encourage one another,
