Today was a great day. On Tuesdays I go to a Bible study at our church and the kids have home school classes during the same time. They love it!!! This morning Bookworm went to the nursing home with his class. The whole class said scripture for the folks there, they sang songs and kids who wanted to, played music. Some kids played the Violin and others played the piano. My Bookworm played his favorite song, “The Woodpecker Song” by Buddy Davis this morning on the piano! I am very proud of him, so thankful that he could be a blessing to others!!!
This afternoon after we came home we did some school and the older two did a great job. I honestly cannot tell you what a blessing it is to be able to teach my own kids. They are learning and growing every day and I am just thrilled to be able to see it! The most important thing is watching them grow into boys with such a heart for Christ.
Today one project we worked on was File Folder games. You can do File Folder games for just about any age. My five year old had an activity and so did my eight year old. Some of the pros of doing File Folder games are:
1. They are really cheap! All I did was print off the activities and then gave each child scissors, glue stick, and the folder!
2. They do not take a lot of room to store
3. They can be adapted for just about any age and the child can use MANY different skills in one project
4. Kids on the spectrum can really benefit from the file folder games. Kids on the spectrum tend to be very visual thinkers. File folder activities provide structure and allow repeated practice skills on skills and concepts.
Here are some pictures from today 🙂
In the above picture Bookworm is cutting out his Math to use for a File Folder Activity. If you haven’t done File Folder Activities this is a nice break from routine Math or any subject, it makes it fun and gives you a break from “bookwork”. I like doing things like this to keep the kids yearning for learning.
Bookworm is helping cut out the smaller pictures for his brothers File Folder Activity.
Both boys are working hard!

File Folder Matching…this project worked on many skills in one! Such a great fun activity!
I hope everyone is having a blessed week in the Lord, take time to find the blessings everyday!!! God is so good!!
