School Days @ Homeschooling6

The Stick With It 6 Week Challenge is over and I stuck with it. Yay! Today I continued with Reading Lessons Through Literature. I didn’t get everyone in but I’m sticking with it.

I am not sure if I’ll continue RLTL with Lance. I’m still deciding. I am with Caleb, Brent, and Ethan.

I didn’t take any pictures of Caleb and Brent completing Reading Lessons Through Literature (RLTL) but they did complete Spelling List 23 and 24.

Lance is on his 3rd week with Spelling You See.

Today he concentrated on finding consonant chunks.

This week he’ll use a blue marker to mark the consonant chunks. The blue was a little dark so I’m going to find a highlighter for him to use the rest of the week.

Earlier this morning the kids and I were listening to Adventures in Odyssey-Pilgrims Progress Revisited.

Lance found the picture book of Pilgrims Progress after he was done listening to it. I didn’t realize he had found it until I turned from making my breakfast and saw him speaking for the characters.

It was funny. I grabbed my camera, snapped a picture, and recorded some of it as well.

Today I had Caleb and Brent start their Alert Cadet Journals and their first workbook. They received their uniforms last week.
Alert Cadet
This weeks verse to memorize is Psalm 139:1-2.

Character quality they will be memorizing this week as well.

And their Physical Training assignment for today.
In Alert Cadet the boys are challenged to journal 365 days a year.
Alert Cadet
Each day the boys have three sections to write about in their Alert Cadet Journal.

~Daily Journal-this is where they write about what the did that day. I think it’s to help them see how they are spending their time. Are they being productive and using their time wisely.

~Wisdom Search-the boys are to record scripture they read. Maybe write a verse that God wants them to pay particular attention to, and how they will apply it to their life, along with any insights God gives them. Alert Cadet suggest that the boys read 1 chapter of the Bible a day.

~Personal Observation-this section is to record interesting things that happened, how they felt about it, how they responded, or observe their character development and write ways how God is working.

As you can see it’s a pretty intense program and I’m praying and trying to figure out how to incorporate Alert Cadet into school assignments.

We expect the boys will need at least 2 hours to complete their Alert Cadet as well as AWANA daily. Not all in one sitting but throughout the day.

One of the things we talked about with the boys who are going through Alert Cadet is how they use their time. Studying and memorizing God’s Word is most important. We have challenged them to put God’s Word, Alert Cadet, and AWANA above their computer time, play outside time, and anything else that doesn’t really further God’s kingdom or their future as men of God, being fathers, and husbands.

When they win on their computer games or Wii and get to the next level, what really have they accomplished? Nothing. We want our boys to grow up and be men who honor God, love their wives, and rear their children.
I’m excited to see what God has planned for them as they complete their Alert Cadet assignments.
