February's Book of the Month

February's Book

The Courage Of Sarah Noble
by Alice Dalgliesh

This book illustrates the beautiful story of Sarah Noble, a young girl who goes on a journey with her father. The story is set in 1707 and is a great literature selection to accompany an early American unit study. Learn about what life was like for early pioneers, meet Indians, and learn the valuable lessons of courage and faith. This book can be read alone by students grade 3 and up. For younger students you can use it as a read aloud.

My third grade daughter really enjoyed reading this book. She got deeply involved with the main character, Sarah Noble. A very easy chapter book for young students to read.

Highly recommended!

January's Book of the Month

NIrV Discover's Bible

For young readers

This bible is for grades 2-3 and up.

This bible is the one my third grade daughter uses for her bible reading. It is very easy to understand, and looses no content in its translation. I have actually enjoyed reading this bible during my personal bible reading time. I also bought one for my mom for Christmas because she has a hard time understanding the Bible. She LOVES reading from this book. I prefer it to the Living Bible translation. It has shorter sentences that makes reading easier for young readers, or anyone who has a hard time understanding the bible. I highly recommend adding this bible. Not only will your children enjoy reading from it, but mom's and dad's will as well.

Let the Blogging begin again

Wow! I haven't posted anything here in almost a month. It wasn't planned, but somewhere during this Christmas season I decided I wasn't going to get on the computer...unless it was a necessity. With all the extra things to do over the holidays I decided to spend all of my extra time with my kids, watching movies and football games that I normally wouldn't watch, playing board games, and just being with them.

I even took a break from my Thoughtful Thursdays Meme. I will be starting back with my entries this coming Thursday.

But now that it's all over and things seem to be getting back to normal...Let the blogs begin again!

My favorite gifts I got for Christmas are comfy blue house shoes and a NY Giants sweat shirt with a hood.

School will be starting back for us on January 5th. I will be spending the remainder of this week getting my school planner organized and getting lesson plans ready to go. I have enjoyed our 3 week vacation, but I think we are all ready to jump back into our lessons. We have a lot of fun things planned for the remainder of the year and I can't wait to share them with you along the way!
