A Look Ahead (August 2008)

I know that I am a little late posting our school goals and plans for the month of August, but, here it is.
Here is how the month of August will look for us:

Character Trait Study for this month is :
Faith - Believing God will do what He says

Memory Verse is Hebrews 11:1 "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen".

We will be keeping a prayer list as well as doing a quick review on salvation.

Reading (Progressive Phonics - Reading Reviews);
Little Man- Begin book 10 (intermediate vowels), Read out loud daily
Little Mama- Continue reading reviews of short vowel sounds, read out loud daily
Baby Girl- Letters I, J, K (upper case)
We will be reading Matthew 14:28, Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, John 3:16, John 6:47, John 1:12, and Luke 12:6

Math- (Math U See)

We will continue to work on our memory verse as a family and to take part in different activities that will help us to better understand what it truly means to be Faithful.
