ENGLISH 7: We just finished a grammar AND a vocabulary Unit. We will continue with "a sprinkling of grammar" throughout our current poetry unit. For our poetry unit, we will be reading and writing poems, and we will be writing a research paper on a famous poet. Your student will have learned fifteen different types of poems and twenty literary elements by the end of the unit. Pretty cool!
BIBLE 7: We are in the middle of Unit 3, The Writings. We are currently learning about Job. I love getting to talk to the students about how God is completely in control of all things! Next up in Unit 3 is Ecclesiastes where we see how meaningless life is without the Lord. Our current memory work is The Apostles Creed.
ENGLISH 8: We just finished a grammar AND a vocabulary Unit. We finished our unit on research writing. We finished our Holocaust Literature Unit. Now we are on to a poetry unit. Not only will we be learning the intricacies of poetry, we will also be making poetry portfolios for this unit, and you will LOVE the end product!
BIBLE 8: We're nearing the end of Unit 2 and discussing early church history. Students will have to write papers on a person who heavily influenced the early church. Currently, we are discussing the qualifications for church leadership, and I have been so encouraged by the students' responses! They strongly agree that what Paul expressed to Timothy and Titus is still current for our churches today. (Of COURSE God's Word is perfect and living and active and always relevant!) I love that I get to dig into the details of God's Word every day with these amazing kids! Our current memory work is The Apostles Creed.
|Great times in DC. :)|
