Shrimp Fajitas: It’s What’s for Dinner!

By | April 20, 2024

There was a lot of “Make this again!” and “Yum! This is so good!” at dinner tonight. I’ve made this before, but I’m going to definitely have to make this more frequently. It was really delicious. I served the fajitas with corn tortillas, homemade guacamole,  homemade restaurant-style salsa, and tortilla chips. I used the fajita… Read More »

Evaluating the Hearts of our “Church Kids”

By | February 20, 2024

This entry is part 5 of 6 in the series These are a Few of My Favorite {Homeschool} Things

For elementary math, I use Singapore Math.  I really like this curriculum (but I also really like math). What I most appreciate about the program is that it teaches the students to understand how the math works. It encourages the use of math manipulatives (connecting blocks, place value charts, etc.) for the child to use… Read More »

Both the handwriting and keyboarding curriculum I use for K-5th grade is through the company Learning Without Tears. I actually began handwriting in K-4 using the Handwriting Without Tears student workbook. You can purchase a small chalkboard to help teach writing letters, which I found helpful. I also bought lined paper from the company that… Read More »

After this, we continued reading using McGuffey’s Eclectic readers, beginning with level 3. We always do 3 days of oral reading a week, and then… Read More »
