One Day at a Time

Each day is different. Take learning one day at a time. Soak in to what a day can offer.

We have put together a snippet of our daily learning to inspire our readers to take on learning one day at a time. You will be surprised that most of our learning are done outside the house, and outside of the curriculum that we have purchased. The best part of learning from home is that you have your own schedule. You have your own lesson plan. If you have already unschooled your mind, you would have realized by now that learning can be done anytime. You have the freedom to take 180 days of required school days to unlimited days of lifetime learning. We aspire that our published daily learning may inspire you to spice up your daily learning.

Cheers, to a lifetime learning and experience.

Day 11: “Using Technology in our Learning”

Technology has been a big part of our learning. We have been investing on online video learning through Abeka Academy. Our first step to instill independent learning is getting each of our grade school kids their own learning laptop. Apple’s Education pricing came in handy. With the videos and their own laptop, they embark to…

Day 10: “One Day at a Time”

Wanting to finish second grading period before the year ends (we started September) is my goal. Most homeschoolers would say, stick to your schedule. Mark your calendar with a pen, instead of a pencil. So that everything will be permanent. I was doing just that. Wait a minute, I have to remind myself that we…

Day 9: “The Blessing of Homeschooling”

On our Day 9, we decided to join a camping trip with fellow homeschoolers that we haven’t met. It was a 3 days/2 night trip but we forego of the first night. We came Saturday morning, stayed overnight and left Sunday morning. We didn’t have a lot of expectations on this one since we don’t…

Day 8: “The Ring”

Our 4-year old keep coming back to our front window. Using her two small hands she keeps putting her window like she puts a hand print on it over and over. My thoughts were that she wanted to go outside. I went to her to give her a big hug. Before I can do that,…

Day 7: “Up Close and Personal with Verbs”

We were on our 7th day. My 5th grader, fresh from her “punishment”, is the most attentive student I ever had. We are tackling verb phrases on sentences such as like this: Then the Venus flytrap will quickly clamp down and digest the fly.  She will need to underline the verb phrase which are will…

Day 6: “One Gift We Should not Ignore”

Two years ago, our daughter received a huge gift. She was very excited to open it, only to get a puzzled look after she saw what it is. It was a toy, all right. Who among kids do not like toys? Her dilemma, she has not seen that toy before. Neither of us knows how…

Day 5: “Disobedience…”

Having a full time job while homeschooling is not easy. I would say that again, it is not easy. I rely very much on prayers, encompassing the gift of teaching and learning. I can’t count how many times I would pray in a day. Even my last awake mind is still filled with prayers. This…

Day 4: “When Gold and Bugs Unite”

Did I mention we love science? Abeka’s 5th grade science suggested to find a golden rod jungle to observe the bugs that comes to visit. It is one of those amazing relationship that God has created. The golden rod – with its bright golden color – attract different kinds of bugs, and offer its nectar.…

Day 3: “At the end of a mess is a…”

Wanting to get the most of our night sleep, we have designated Wednesday as our skill enhancement day. We do not have to wake up early every Wednesday, and we only need to complete two subjects during the day. The rest of the day will be spent doing anything. We scheduled music (voice/music) lessons during…

Day 2: “Science is the Study of God’s Creation.”

Studying Science has been one of the most-awaited subject in our day.  This is where we learn a lot of wonders together as a family. Best part of them all is that the books that we are using fully integrate it to what the Bible says. The very first Bible verse that they have ever…
