and seek God.

Romans 8:14 -17 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons (daughters) of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

I John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them:
because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

I John 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world:
and this is the victory that overcometh the world,
even our faith.

Galatians 4:6-7 And because ye are sons (daughters),
God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son (daughter);
and if a son (daughter), then an heir of God through Christ.

Philippians 2:14-15 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons (daughters) of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

Ephesians 4:14-15 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro,
and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men,
and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things,
which is the head, even Christ:

Notebooking and Copywork

We have enjoyed notebooking and lapbooking for the first time this year. The boys did mostly copywork, though for most of it they were given choices of what to copy for the subject we were doing. We did notebooking for both History and Science and of course both count as part of their Language Arts. We also did notebooking of Scripture Verses and Poems that exemplify character traits I am trying to instill in my boys.
Below you will see some scans of some of our favorite pages and I put links in the column on the side to my favorite Notebooking/Copywork free and sale sites.
For Science we were doing Biomes/Plants/Animals. The pages I included from Science are my ds11's Penguin pages. He choose the poems he liked best from some sites I found on the Internet.

Also there is one page on Millipedes that my ds 11 picked out from a poem book we got at the Library.

One thing to remember for next year is to document where we get the Notebooking/Copywork from on the child's page or maybe on the back to help us remember and to give credit to the author.

For History we covered from the Birth of Augustus Caesar to the Dark Ages.
The pages I included are from my ds 13
the Bible Acts 8:39-40

The Finding of the Dead Sea Scrolls
My boys do not like drawing and getting them to do this is like pulling teeth. We are still working on their writing too. That is one of their most challenging areas in their education.

For Character/Language Arts we did copywork of poems from:
The Book of Virtues edited, with commentary, by William J. Bennett
The Moral Compass edited, with commentary, by William J. Bennett
Favorite Poems Old and New selected by Helen Ferris
Poems for Memorization by Rod and Staff

the pages below are from my ds 13

"Work While You Work"

"If You Were"

"It Can Be Done"

George Washington's Rules of Civility
I hope this gives you some ideas for Notebooking and Copywork and don't forget to check out my favorite Notebooking and Copywork links in the column on the right

Links Added to my page

I have added some favorite links to my page. They are over on the right hand side.

My sons and I have really enjoyed lapbooking this year and so I have added a whole section of links on lapbooking. I LOVE to look for new resources online, so I will be adding to my links.

Check back and see what is new. I hope this blog will be an aid to you in your homeschooling journey. If you have questions about lapbooking, or unit studies, or getting organized, or any other part of homeschooling; leave me a comment and I will get back to you and probably blog my answer so all can see it. Please bookmark my site I will be adding to it regularly. I will try to add a new blog article later today or tomorrow.

Happy Homeschooling
