We are gearing up to start My Father's World First Grade in a couple of weeks here. I've been talking to the girls about starting a schedule and getting dressed right away each morning ready to start the day. I'm doing some final preparations, ordering a few more books, and organizing the school/ art cupboard. For some reason I'm a bit nervous about this year, maybe because its the year Lucy would be going to Kindergarten if we weren't homeschooling. I'm not anxious about our decision to keep her home at all, just a bit worried about getting everything done that I need to in a day. I feel like I'm taking on another full time job, but I know that it will all fit in somehow. As you can see, Esther is a big help already!
I'm not going to post about our schooling every week (I tried that last year and couldn't keep up!). I will, however, post various resources, fun activities, organizing tips, and more as we go. Back in May I chatted a bit about the books we will be using. Here is another resource that I recently found and love:
The Jesus Storybook Bible is an awesome children's Bible! It tells the Bible stories unlike any other storybook I've read. The stories come alive and captivate the listeners with fun details. The whole storybook is written in a comprehensive manner that helps one understand the Bible. I bought this from Amazon for only $16.50 including CDs of the entire book being read aloud. We are enjoying it and the girls ask to be read to from this book often. My mom purchased one as well and was very impressed. This is a great resource to go along with My Father's World 1st.
I did not receive any product for this review. I just love the book and wanted to share this resource. I am an Amazon affiliate so I do get paid a small amount if you purchase something after clicking through my links.
