Our Little School at Home: Little Hearts for His Glory Unit 2 & 3

Jacob is continuing to LOVE school. When I asked him what his favorite thing is, he answered, "Sittin' in your lap and reading. Ummm. No, putting chocolate chips on the 'cookies.' Actually, no. It was all of it." (Smile)

We are using The Reading Lesson for phonics and I could not be more satisfied with the progress he has made. He has had a little difficulty and we have had to repeat the same page four times now. I am not worried - I know that this is so common.

For math, he did make "chocolate chip cookies" by putting the correct number (1-10) of chips in round circles on a sheet of paper. He found this activity to be "delicious." I smile because learning is so FUN!

One thing Jacob does with great enthusiasm is the rhyme. He had so much fun this week jumping backwards three times as he shouted, "Go, GO, GO!" Some days we did the rhyme over and over again - I did not mind. School should be fun at this age & it definitely is with Heart of Dakota!

He also memorized Ephesians 6:1 "Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right." When the week was over, he whispered the verse into his Woof-Woof's ear. It was just too cute.
