Mommy Moments – School Day


mommy moments

We have been homeschooling for a month now. This is where we usually start our day, studying in their room.


And this is where we study during the afternoon.

Our usual school day routine starts at 9am. We start with a prayer, national anthem, Bible reading and devotions. Then we start with our formal lessons. On Monday and Wednesdays, we have Language, Science and Bible. While on Tuesday and Thursday, we usually have Math, Social Studies and Reading. On Fridays, we have Filipino, World History and Mandarin. We do our copywork and textbooks then we also do projects. As long as resources allow, we try to do it hands-on so kids can appreciate and apply what they are learning.

writing about what she learned from the story

created Adam and Eve out of clay.. we learned about what it means to be fearfully and wonderfully made. what it means to be at the palm of God’s hands.
She has her ballet class 2 times a week and piano class once a week. And for socialization, she has her Sunday school class and the kids go with us wherever we go… they meet all sorts of people at all sorts of ages too.

While Kyla is studying, Toby is also doing his own work alongside us. Though there are days that I just let him play, but recently he has shown a lot of interest in learning to write and in studying phonics through the computer.
We haven’t been to any field trips yet but hopefully, we can schedule them soon. There have been days when we aren’t able to follow our schedule, but we don’t stress about it. We just try to read and study on other weekends when we aren’t busy. I just make sure she learns something new each day and that she appreciates what God has done for her throughout the day. I know that there are still many things I want to improve on and add on, like more vocabulary and spelling. More arts and crafts. More foreign language. I know that with God’s grace and guidance, we will continually learn together and keep enjoy learning. School has been so much fun.. Maybe I should ask my daughter to write about it and share it with you soon 🙂
Now, share your kid’s school day with us 🙂 Happy mommy moments!

    btw,where's Mr.Linky?

  2. I admire mommies like you who home school their children. : )

  3. I salute you, Chris, for being the kind of mom that you are! It's not easy being your children's teacher and mom at the same time. It takes a lot of patience to do that! Your kids will grow up really appreciating all that you're doing for them.

  14. Go Mommy Chris! God Bless on your endeavor. And hopefully, Kyla won't get bored in the succeeding years 🙂

    Btw, Mommy, Sunday school is not only for socialization 😉 More importantly, Sunday School is for our and our kids spiritual growth 🙂 In Sunday school, we learn the foundations and stands of our faith 🙂

    God Bless to your entire family.
