M is for Manners

M - Manners

Manners can be a constant battle. Satan is always after us to try to influence us to be unkind, rude, hurtful, or just plain mean. We are working diligently with the girls, and ourselves, to be Christ-like in our word and actions.

I wanted to have a manners talk with the girls. To do so, I let them have a Bad Manners Tea Party. You read that correct. They had a play tea party and did whatever they wanted, having bad manners throughout. And not just the picking-up-food-with-your-hands kind of bad manners. They talked badly. They were rude to each other. They were unkind. They laughed at each other. They had fun having bad manners. They thought it was all in jest. And they were right. Sort of.

They were also very wrong. You see, we often battle interruptions. We often catch ourselves grumbling. We often find ourselves complaining. We hear the arguing. We often forget to treat others the way we would like to be treated. We often forget to conduct ourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Did you catch the scripture references?

Luke 6:31

M - Luke 6_31

Philippians 2:14

M - Phil 2_14

Philippians 1:27

M - Phil 1_27

You see, God has given us His Word. To equip us. To assist us. To help us. We need to turn to His Word.

As we chatted about the Bad Manners Tea Party, we tied it into some of what has been going on around the house over the past days, weeks, and months. You see, I let it get out of hand when I get worn down and tired. That is just what Satan is wanting because we allow it to get worse and worse. In our chat, the girls became more and more aware of how many bad manners we were having every day. So, we decided to fight back.

We made a list of good manners and what having good manners means. It means respect. It means kindness. It means love. It means Luke 6:31, Philippians 2:14, and Philippians 1:27. It means being the child of God that we so desire to be. It means work.

Work we will. We are memorizing these scriptures. Or rememorizing them, as the case may be. And we are applying them. Daily. Consistently. Diligently. Because Satan cannot win. He will not win. We are determined to be children of God. At Home.

A Review – HomeSchoolPiano

HomeSchoolPiano review

Does taking piano lessons seem out of reach for you? Do you just not have the time to trek to and from lessons at least once a week? HomeSchoolPiano may be just what you are looking for. Willie Myette is a dynamic music instructor who teaches all aspects of piano to all levels of performers, whether you are just beginning or you have some years under your belt.

 Homeschool Piano Review

We have been using HomeSchoolPiano – Complete Set of Books and enjoying our time at the piano. The Complete Set of Books gives you access to:

  • Core Piano
  • Book 1
  • Book 2
  • Book 3

Price and Age Range

To purchase the Complete Set of Books, visit HomeSchoolPiano. There are two payment packages for you to choose from.

1. The Success Package is one payment of $299. This gives you unlimited life-time access to all of HomeSchoolPiano along with all bonuses (downloads, jam tracks, and sheet music) for up to 5 students.

2. The Payment Plan consists of payments of $99.97 a month for three months. This gives you the same benefits as the Success Package, which is unlimited life-time access to all of HomeSchoolPiano along with all bonuses (downloads, jam tracks, sheet music) for up to 5 students.

One great thing about this program is that it fits every age range and season of life. Whether you are the homeschooling parent of a single youngest or many of various ages; whether you are looking at this for yourself as a hobby; or if you are in your golden years and want to revisit your piano playing days or learn to play since you never did, this program will work for you! It doesn’t matter your age, this program has a lot to offer you and yours.

Core Piano

In Core Piano, you will find over two hours of instruction (33 lessons) on the basics to get you started. It is set up a bit differently than the other three books, though, with shorter video times and a single concept to work on in each lesson. Core Piano is where you will want to begin your instruction if you or your student is brand new to piano or returning after a bit away. It covers things like how to sit, how to hold your hands and fingers, the musical alphabet, rhythmic instruction, the different staves, and so much more. Even if you haven’t been away from piano long, this is an important section and it would be a mistake to skip it.

Books 1, 2, and 3

All three books are set up in the same way. You will find six units in each Book. Each unit has seven sections to it. Six of them are the six, overlapping skill areas for playing piano: technique, rhythm, ear training, reading music, song, and improvisation. The seventh section is a bonus lesson with material for the more advanced student that may feel they need a bit more of a challenge. Each Book has a downloadable and printable PDF file to go with it that includes all of the music needed.

Homeschool Piano Review

Lessons

Each lesson is a video of Mr. Myette sitting at his piano, talking directly to the student. One of the things that I really appreciated about every lesson I viewed was that Mr. Myette did such a fantastic, careful job of explaining difficult musical concepts in a way that even J, who is 5, could understand. This often meant that he described it in multiple ways. This was helpful to the giggly girls on more than one occasion.

On screen with Mr. Myette is a view of his piano keyboard AND a computerized piano keyboard that lights up each key he plays and shows it’s letter name. This is a valuable asset for the younger student. This allows them to feel like they have their teacher sitting right there with them showing them exactly which keys to play to be following directions and learning skills.

Musical Skills

If you know much about our family, you know that we are a musical family. The girls knew a little bit of piano prior to beginning these homeschool piano lessons and they knew how to read some music, both rhythmically and melodically, on the staff. Because of this, they were a little bit hesitant to begin with. They didn’t want to go back to the beginning and feel like they were being talked down to. For the most part, they didn’t feel that way at all and enjoyed the piano instruction. They enjoyed putting rhythm and melody together on the piano and the technique exercises did not seem to bother them all that much. They seemed to find the technique exercises fun, which is saying a lot of good things about Mr. Myette’s HomeSchoolPiano. (I majored in music so spent a lot of time on technique exercises and I don’t think I would ever have said they were fun!)

Even having the background that I do in music and enjoying playing piano as often as I can find the time, this program stretched me and my abilities. I am a self taught pianist – yes, I took a few lessons when I was young and had lessons in college where my kind teachers tried hard to fix the bad habits I had developed. But, I learned many things in HomeSchoolPiano that no one had ever bothered explaining to me – for example, where to position myself in front of the keyboard and where your hands should be positioned (figured out that if I sit on a cushion to boost myself about 3 inches, I can play ever so much better – surprise, surprise!). I learned a lot of new things, strengthened my rhythmic abilities on the piano, and found some improvisation abilities that I didn’t know existed anywhere within my bones. Improvisation and me have never gotten along but with this program, I understood what I needed to be thinking and doing and I seemed to be making great strides with it.

What I Really Liked About HomeSchoolPiano

Really, the question is what did I NOT like about HomeSchoolPiano. This program is a hit with me and I am unreasonable picky when it comes to music instruction. I really, truly appreciate that Mr. Myette talks TO the student, not at them or down to them. He works with words and analogies they will understand and explains concepts in multiple ways. I am grateful that he begins at the very beginning with concepts that even the youngest need to know and that the older players may have forgotten or dismissed as unimportant (or even allowed to degenerate into a bad habit).

Another thing that is significantly important to me in music instruction for my children is terminology. I want the instructors to use the right terminology, even when it is in the very beginning and working with comparative terms. I want my girls to learn that it is loud and quiet, not loud and soft. This may seem like a little thing but it actually is important and is mistaught often. So, when I heard Mr. Myette using the correct terminology, my heart sang just a bit. If he starts them out right with those terms, I feel confident that it will continue all the way through the piano instruction he provides.

Bonus of bonuses: this program will play on the Kindle Fire just fine. We were able to just pull up the website using our Kindle Fire and login. Once logged in, it was easy to maneuver between lessons and such. Playing the video lesson on the Kindle Fire allowed the girls to be able to be seated at the piano and have the video right there in front of them, just like having their teacher sitting there showing them exactly what they need to learn. It was easy to pause the lesson for the girls to practice something and the restart the video and continue on. I am thrilled that it is so easy to use.

A Note or Two

It is easy to forget the nature of music instruction when using a curriculum like this. I did it. I found myself wondering why E was getting frustrated, why she wasn’t enjoying it as much as I expected her to and why she wasn’t making progress. Turns out, I forgot a major piece of the puzzle when it comes to music education. Practice!

Normally, in a lesson situation, you have a lesson once a week or twice a week, and in between, you practice every single day. Well, I had allowed her to go on to the next lesson a couple of times in a row in Book 1. She didn’t get enough practice with the technique and concept and exercises before she moved on. So, she naturally got frustrated. I missed the boat on that! So, we went back and tried again, this time taking several days between lessons to PRACTICE! This makes all the difference in the world.

Schedule this carefully and allow time for your student to view the video at least twice and practice for several days before moving on. And, don’t move on until they feel confident with the exercises. Many a time in college, I would get the same technique exercises and songs to work on week after week after week because I didn’t have the skill down to the point where I felt confident with it. So, allow your student the time she needs to work with the techniques and move on when she is confident and ready.

Just so you know, we will be continuing this. We will get pretty regimented with it in the fall and that includes myself! We will all continue with piano lessons from HomeSchoolPiano and pretty soon, the girls will be playing better than me! At Home.

Make It Work Monday

Make It Work Monday title

This may be a new thing for us and maybe it is just for today. Anyhow, we spent today “making it work.” Mostly, this applied to clothing fix-its. We had one for the doll and several for the humans of the household. In a nod to our past Sewing To Summer series, here are the sewing lessons and activities we did today.

Doll Dress Repair:

L had one of the straps of this doll dress come apart. So, she learned how to thread a needle and knot it for hand sewing. She then sewed the broken strap on, learning to avoid the hole in the fabric, and sewed the other strap to keep it from having the same problem.

Print Dress:

E added a lace insert from a spaghetti-strap tank that was never worn and never would be. This made the dress modest and E can now wear it. She helped with all steps of the designing and sewing process.

Leopard Print Dress:

We added pin-tucks along the front of this dress and tucks at the shoulders. Both of these pulled the neckline up, making it a modest and wearable dress for E.

Teal T-shirt:

This is a favorite for sleeping but was just too low-cut for it to be comfortable. So, we worked on it and created a v-shaped tuck at the center (where there was already a v) and just sewed it down.

Butterfly Camo:

This pair of pants had a hole in the knee. It fits J in the waist so I cut the pants evenly across the hole and hemmed them to create a pair of cropped pants for early fall. I then refashioned the pieces that were cut from the legs into strapless dresses for the dolls. It was a simple thing since the elastic was already in the pants leg. I did have to take off and resew the bows so they weren’t upside down. I just decided how tight the elastic at the top needed to be, cut it apart and resewed it at an angle from there down to the existing seam. Then I cut the excess fabric off along that sewn angle and zigzagged the edge to keep it from fraying.

Make It Work Monday resulted in a much smaller sewing pile for me and I enjoyed not having to do it all myself. I like doing sewing lessons so maybe this will continue next Monday. At Home.

 

L is for Learning Together

L - learning together

We had some very dear friends spend the afternoon and evening with us the other day. The kids came over for the afternoon while their mom took care of some things and the kids had so much fun. Then we ate dinner together and chatted until well after the giggly girls bedtime. It was wonderful fellowship.

Shortly after they arrived, though, I found all six of the children (3 giggly girls, 2 visiting girls, and 1 visiting boy) huddled together talking in excited voices. Listening from across the room so that I didn’t disturb them, I realized that the oldest of our friends was excitedly sharing her art portfolio with my giggly girls and they were LOVING it. Discussions about what she drew, where her inspiration came from, what she used, what she thought, and so much more came floating across the room to my ear. I was listening, thrilled at all the learning that was going on simply by them talking to each other!

Not long after that, the oldest giggly girl went and got her portfolio (much of it was from ARTistic Pursuits – do you remember that review?). Hushed, excited voices began once again, this time with her explaining the assignment for each of her pieces, what she was trying to show, why she chose the subject she did, etc. More learning together. More thrilled listening for me.

L - art case

Next came the showing of the art case. (What are those called? I can’t think of a better word!) As our friend showed off her birthday present, the kids talked about all of the different media available and how you use them. Various pencils, chalk pastels, oil pastels, watercolor pencils, charcoal pencils, a pose-able human model, different types of erasers, and on and on. Such excitement as together, they shared their knowledge and learned from each other. Our friend talked about what she knew and the oldest giggly girl talked about what she knew and all the others put in their 2 cents worth. Together, they managed to teach each other much.

To top it off, we decided we NEEDED to create some art pieces. Since our friends had never used chalk pastels and they are so much fun AND so forgiving, we pulled them out. After looking up some ideas (check out HodgePodge), we decided to create waterfalls. Well, the lone boy decided a tornado was more his speed, so that is what he did. (And he did a fantastic job!) After one picture, it was an absolute necessity to continue using this media and creating more works of art!

L - works in progress

Lots of mess and lots of drawing and lots of laughter and lots of fun later, here is what the giggly girls and their friends created.

L - art work

 

Learning is good but when the giggly girls can learn together from their peers of all ages, there is just nothing like it. And I smile. At Home.

Rounding Up Ideas for Our Fall Curriculum

Round up of printable resources

As we move toward beginning our new curriculum, I have been looking around for ideas and printables to help us along. The major parts that I have been looking for printables and ideas to go with are Mystery of History, volume 1 and Five In A Row, Vol. 1. All the giggly girls will be doing the history and the youngest giggly girl will be working with FIAR. I am really excited about these two parts of our curriculum.

Five In A Row resources

FIAR Printables and Ideas:

  • One of my crewmates just put up a whole page of printables for FIAR on her blog Guiding Light Homeschool.
  • Homeschool Share has lots of printables for all sorts of books and unit studies.
  • The Teachers page on Scholastic.com has activities and information for all different books.
  • The Five In A Row blog has free Fold&Learn printables for their subscribers.
  • Of course, if you do a search on Pinterest for FIAR printables you get a lot of pins.
  • A pinterest search for each of the book titles will garner you a whole new set of ideas, as well.

MOH resources

Mystery of History, volume 1:

  • Organization for Mystery of History, in video format with printables, created by Kendra Fletcher. I am about to embark on doing all of this so we can start organized. (In two parts)
  • I like the lesson planning page available for download on My Joy Filled Life. We didn’t purchase all of the supplemental pieces to go with Mystery of History so there is a lot in this post that I won’t use but I really like the lesson planning page!
  • We will be creating the timelines but we purchased bound timelines for each of the girls to create her own. If you haven’t done that, this might be useful: a printable timeline from Contented At Home.
  • Joy In Our Journey has flash cards for the dates that are suggested for memorization in this program that can be downloaded. (Note: There are other links on the page that do not go to free resources.)

Join us through the coming year to see what we are doing with each of these pieces of our curriculum. At Home.

K is for Kids’ Craft Box

K - Kids' Craft Box

 

So what is a Kids’ Craft Box? A big ol’ box filled with all sorts of craft materials for the kids. Really. It can be whatever you want it to be.

Ours is mostly crafty, imaginative activities. Yours could be movement activities, art projects, books, games. Whatever strikes your fancy or the fancy of the kids you are creating it for.

Since this was to be for the girls, they had a hand in deciding what went into it. We pulled out a huge box of activities and crafty materials that we have been given, much of which came from our recently retired-from-teaching mom/mok (grandma). The rest was stuff I had stashed away for a rainy day. Yes, that means this box was FREE to create and fill!

We put the beautiful box to fill on the table, opened up our huge box of goodies, and the girls went to town. Here is all that went into it!

Fun Box 5

Fun Box 4 Fun Box 3 Fun Box 2 Fun Box 1

And here are some of the things that have been made using these materials.

K - raft

A raft for Polly Pocket-sized dolls, complete with seats and oars.

K - popsicles

K - flower

What would you put into a kids’ craft box? Please share your ideas with me so that when it is time to refill this one, I have something new on hand. At Home.

A Review – Moving Beyond The Page

Moving Beyond The Page Review

Excitement reigns anytime we have the opportunity to review anything based on literature. Moving Beyond the Page is a company offering literature based unit studies in language arts, science, and social studies. I had heard A LOT of great things about Moving Beyond The Page, so I was anxious to see if they lived up to all of the hype. They did. I was pleased with the program and all that it offered.

What We Received

Sign of the Beaver Native Americans

Why I Chose These

This selection process was actually a very easy one for me. The middle giggly girl has an ongoing interest in Native Americans and we cannot seem to do enough study. When I was viewing the options that Moving Beyond The Page offers in unit studies (and there is a lot), the combination of Native Americans and The Sign of the Beaver just jumped out at me. Since I have been telling L for a while that we would study more Native Americans, this just seemed like it was the right time to do so.

While the selection was easy for me this time, it will not be so easy next time, though the units on the book Ben And Me and Magnetism and Electricity have kind of stuck with me. Each language arts unit has a corresponding science or social studies unit that is designed to accompany and enhance it. This makes it so simple to expand your studies. And the choices!! Check out all they have to offer by visiting Moving Beyond the Page.

Pricing

Age Range

Moving Beyond the Page has units for ages 4 – 14. The two units we used are designated for ages 8 – 10. Both E, age 10, and L, age 8, fit the age range for the units we worked with.

How We Used The Unit Studies

Each unit study is designed to take approximately 3 weeks to complete. If you are doing a language arts study AND either a science or social studies unit at the same time, plan on several hours a day to complete the activities in both. Because we are working on these in the summer time, we planned to work on the Native Americans unit and follow it with The Sign of the Beaver language arts unit, taking 6 weeks to complete. Each day has multiple activities so there is a lot to do with each of the pieces of information in the units. There were so many activities that we did not complete them all.

The Native American study we received was a physical guide and physical books. I really like having the physical guide to work from. The student pages are integrated into the guide and are very good. They really make the student think, comparing and contrasting, looking up information or definitions, and applying ideas to something new. One drawback is that the copyright states that you cannot copy the student pages. Since they are integrated into the teacher’s guide, it makes it more difficult to use them and only one student can do the writing. Also, if the student is working, you cannot glance ahead or back to check on other activities. Much of the work on the social studies unit is done in the guide, though some of the activities were things each girl could do on her own, so the girls often took turns writing the answers after we had discussed out loud.

screen shot of guide1The Language Arts study we reviewed had an online guide and we received the physical book for reading. The online guide was much less comfortable for me to use, as each lesson’s activities were spread across three or four pages, taking several clicks to see it all. This made it harder for me to get the big picture with each day. I had to write notes for myself about what we were doing, the information from the introduction, and the suggested closure. Additionally, we only have one computer and if Dad needed the computer at the same time we were working on the unit, I continually was having to disrupt his work so I could access the guide. However, the online guide tracks what you have completed and licenses your family to be able to print the student pages for 90 days. (If you don’t complete the unit in 90 days or if you have a younger student and will want to use the unit with them in the future, you can restart the unit for a fee that is less than buying the unit again.) So, we could print pages for the giggly girls that needed it for each activity option. This is a huge benefit for a family with multiple students.

We did a lot of the unit work out loud, especially when it came to answering questions. This allowed a discussion of the answers, as well as elaboration that just doesn’t happen as well with the oldest giggly girl when she writes. It also allowed the youngest giggly girl to participate. We all got a lot of learning from the discussion format and the units have a lot of activities that ask for discussion to happen.

Three Sisters with overlay

Native Americans Unit

Each lesson is set up the same way:

  1. Getting Started – includes big ideas, facts and definitions, skills, and materials needed, as well as the introduction and questions to ask to help guide the student’s reading in the book
  2. Activities - generally three activities per day and two days of activies; included creative writing, drawing/art, online work, completing student pages, map work, and more
  3. Wrapping Up – includes questions to ask to help the student synthesize the information and apply it, as well as a life application activity
dreams

A riddle about L’s dream and a drawing about E’s dream – two options for the activity discussing the importance of dreams and visions in Native American culture

This unit was designed to help the student examine “daily life of Native Americans and learn about their unique culture and their interdependence with the natural world.” (guide p. 7) We studied the natural resources the Native Americans utilize(d) and where they lived. We studied the tribes of the Southwest, Northwest, Northeast, Southeast, and Plains. Comparison and contrast was a big part of this study and was helpful for the girls to learn about the differences in the tribes. It also did a lot to strengthen their geography knowledge of the country and its regions. In addition to completing the student pages in the guide, we made a tipi, read a legend, made cornhusk dolls, and visited a local museum to learn more about a local tribe. (You can see more about that in the post H is for Hueco Indians.) This unit was a lot of fun and the girls learned so much. I am really pleased with this study, though the activities made it a lot to do in any one day. It took us longer than the anticipated three weeks to complete this unit.

The Sign of the Beaver Unit

The language arts unit is also set up in a consistent way. Each lesson includes:

  1. Getting Started – This includes questions to explore, facts and definitions, skills, materials needed, and an introduction. This is where you find the reading assignment for the lesson and comprehension questions to go along with the reading for the lesson.
  2. Activities - Each lesson typically has three activities, some of which have two options. These options were great because one often focused on writing and one on a creative expression. This allowed the girls to choose which option appealed most to each of them. On a couple of the lessons, the guide planned two days worth of activities but most were only one.
  3. Wrapping Up - The conclusion includes questions to ask or discussions to have that ask the students to think a little harder, a little deeper. Some of the lessons also include a life application such as watching a movie that relates to the book or making a list of values and someone who lives by those values.
homesteads

Drawings of what a homestead might look like in 1700′s Maine, including the natural resources that would have been required to survive.

This unit delves straight into the context of the setting of 1700′s Maine and settlers coming into territory once held by Native Americans. After thinking through the setting and some of the prejudices that would have existed (the Natives upset by those taking over their land and wasting resources; settlers scared of the Natives they feel are dangerous), the students tackle the story and quickly begin to understand that life perhaps was nothing like what they were expecting. The story opens up human emotion, asking the student to often put themselves in the place of the people in the story. Because this is a language arts unit, you will find student pages that deal with vocabulary, prepositions, imagery, and more. The integration of the language arts is strong and the students get a good dose of language work throughout this unit. Once again, though, there were a lot of activities for each day and it was difficult to complete all of the activities for a lesson in a single day.

Will We or Won’t We?

Will we buy more of these unit or not is truly a question that is difficult for me to answer. I liked a lot about them but there were some things that I didn’t care for.

The sheer volume of activities was wonderful. Tremendous, actually. These unit studies have the types of activities and the numbers of activities that I like to include when I write a unit study. There is variety and plenty of it. To use them all, though, I felt like I had to get away from the structure of the guides. Often, the girls were still working on an activity and we needed to move on if we were going to get to all of the activities for that day so we could cover the unit in the recommended time. (We didn’t complete all of the activities and this is a big part of why. I would let the girls continue to work on their project or activity until they had completed it, rather than push them to move on and do a less-than-their-best job.) The activities included a good mix of hands-on and written, comprehension and application. Activities is both a plus and a minus in this program. Flexibility is key.

Mesa Verde Spruce Tree House

Studying the tribes of the Southwest by visiting online sites, including the National Park Service, to view pictures of Mesa Verde and looking through personal pictures of Chaco Canyon cliff dwellings.

The guides were clear and had lots of great information. The plan for the unit was easy to see. The lists of needed materials made it easy to prepare for your day, and unit, ahead of time. The lists of skills worked on will make it easy to track what the student has completed in the unit. There is very little teacher prep with these guides. The material is easily adaptable for your students and you can pick and choose the activities that are right for your family. If you have multiple students working together, it is easy to adapt activities for all levels. Our 5 year old giggly girl worked alongside her older sisters and we modified activities to things that she could do. For example: instead of writing a poem, she drew a picture.

The copyright is vastly different depending on whether you are using the physical guide or the online guide and thus has both a negative and a positive aspect. The copyright in the physical guide does not allow for copying the material in any way or form. To work with multiple students, you have to purchase additional copies of the student pages. This copyright is somewhat restrictive for a family. With the online guide, you can print off the needed number of copies but it is not an indefinite copyright. You are given permission to print the pages for 90 days.

Price is also something that I am just not sure about. For a single language arts or social studies unit, our family could easily handle this. A science unit can be significantly more costly. We will possibly pick one or two more to use as supplements to subjects we are studying next year. But, to use this as something we do multiple times a year, I don’t think I could financially make the choice to spend that much money.

So, I don’t know if we will or we won’t. Simple as that. But I do know that we have really enjoyed this study, that I enjoy looking through the options of Language Arts titles, Science titles, and Social Studies titles that are available, and that unit studies are something we will continue to do. At Home.
