It is Monday Again?!

Today was a not so bad day for a Monday. We did all our Today Goals. So that is what makes it a awesome day for one and the house is still picked up! My children tend to find new home and places for things so that's how we get cluttered up. It can cause issues when you have a lot binders we have a bunch of binders and they take up lots of room!

We learned today in daily scripture "Indeed, to them you are nothing more than one who sings love songs with a beautiful voice and plays an instrument well, for they hear your words but do not put them into practice.Ezekiel 33:32"   that to keep being Christ like and not only when it is convenient but always because you never know when someone is watching there for if you do something not of God and someone sees it then they will rebuke you or they may think it is OK and just! So it is up to us to keep Christ like so there is never a question of our faith and everyone we grace with our presents knows who we adore!

We also learned in our creation study the water cycle. How it goes from precipitation to rain, snow or hail to land then it drains into the creeks, rivers ect. to the oceans then it turns in to vapors from the sun and goes back up to the clouds to start all over again! The kids drew a picture of a water cycle they did very well! We put them into their creation notebooks. 

The kids are doing very well with ASL they have there ABC's down except for a couple. But we have mastered Thank you, Please, More, Milk, Hotdog,all done, eat. We try to use these in our everyday lives so they become a habit. Makenzee is really thriving to learning ASL so it makes it easier to want to learn with her. Jon-Jon says he wants to but he really doesn't make the effort she does. But he does kinda try so I will give him some credit. Lileigh is hit or miss. Abbi loves to sign want more. When she says it as she signs it, it is like through her nose she isn't pronouncing them. She signs eat and if you look at her she don't miss a meal. Abbigale thinks when she signs or does something she expects you to give her a high five.

In Spanish we are learning the basics like man = Hombre,  woman = mujer, girl = niña, boy = niño, tall = alto, short =bajo , young = joven, old =anciana  , fat =  gorda., thin = delgada , rich = rico, poor = probre. We have also learn Soy = I am, La = The, Es = is a. Jon is actually doing pretty well and Makenzee has her good days and her bad days. But we are starting to see they are getting it.  They do have fun trying to that makes it worth while.

We are learning a new Memory verse and it is easy so shouldn't take to long for them to learn. But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. Matthew 13:16 We do these memory verses so we always remember to put them to everyday use! It is up to us to share Gods word and put it to use not just lay in the book on a shelf.  We need to be Godly examples so leave good examples. You never know if you are going to be what someone needs to be lead to know Jesus or our heavenly Father!  We don't learn them to forget them we keep them close to our hearty an when we learn new one we go over the old ones! S it always stays fresh!

I joined a site on testing schooling products. We started one today called Good Story books This not a Charlotte Mason Method but I joined site before I started the Method. I do my regular goals and do the testing as an extra. They got to listen to "The Duck Who Thought She Was a Watermelon"  By: Joycebelle 

They got to pick a Video, Flash movie, E-book, Audio. There is also E-activities included,

Story by Joycebelle Stickers

 As Well as she included  reading supplements, stories behind the the story, word list, Flash cards, Q/A game.

I asked the kids what would they prefer to do listen to story in a different way each day or listen to a different book each day. They choose to listen to a different book each day and do an activity idea provided. So today they went through all the different to see which way they enjoyed the book better and they did the Q/A game, They had fun. My children have found they like the video and the voice book best the video was fun to see the pictures and the audio they could color or paint while listing to it. They picked a picture and then water colored it while listing to the audio book! I am sure we will be doing this off and on after we go through these books. There great because she tries to put value in them. The kids are looking forward to seeing the other books!
