This week’s focus: Week 1: Lesson 1, 2, 3
For Parent:

• Complete weekly Bible reading. Suggestion – read one chapter a day.
• Optional activities including mapping and quizzes can be found in Companion Guide.
• There will be a monthly Schole class – last Monday of month.
• Building a timeline or using My Book of Centuries is strongly recommended.
• Choose living books to accompany history learning. Lists are provided in Appendix B and C of curriculum guide.
To be completed this week:
• Read MOH text – Lessons 1, 2, 3
• Bible reading – Genesis 1 – 3
• In Bible / History notebook – After reading in the Bible, complete one sentence for each chapter. This could be in the form of a question, quote or comment.
An example after reading Genesis 1:
A question: What might the world have looked like still incomplete after day two? OR
A quote: “And God saw everything he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.” Genesis 1:31 OR
A comment: I notice that after each day of creation God said that it was good.
