Plant Species Nature Adventure Pics. Homeschool Fridays.

Hello All! Hope everyone is healing over the weekend.

I had quite a few questions about what the children were supposed to be doing for work this time and I want to share my thoughts with you (more completely) on why we chose to have Homeschool Fridays - it wasn’t just to have Fridays at home. :) My goal is to integrate parents into each child’s learning experience. Because we were all raised and taught in a ‘get it done and check the box’ environment - it will take us all time to adjust to this - including me. I continue to learn and grow everyday.

That being said, I will be sending home all the books most Thursdays with your child/ren - along with any days the school closes for snow or other reasons. Outside of those books and science/social studies, we practice writing, math facts, reading, bible, sign language and a few other things every day. Learning at home, gives you as a parent a chance to give your child one-on-one attention and assess and give them extra help in whatever they are struggling with - if it’s reading (read extra) or math facts (practice) or writing. I pray we can learn to grow and learn with our children. Your child should know what math facts they practice and what bible verse to write - or if they are confused - I can point you in the right direction.

Jesus was never in a hurry and yet He accomplished everything He was sent to accomplish. He saved the world. I pray we can take yet another page from Jesus’ story and embrace the moments and people in front of us - and together, we ca re-make learning more about exploring this world and less about ‘getting it done’.

I feel very blessed to be surrounded with so many families willing to take on this challenge. I would love to hear feedback as we learn and grow together.

Now the pics!!!

Thanks Kyle and Andrew for the less on plant species! Also the visit to Wookey’s this week was amazing! God Bless!

Getting Ready for the 2019-2020 School Year!

Hey All! Happy summering!

We had the BCS board meeting last night and finalized a few changes and okayed the school calendar. Check it out in the side menu!

1st :  HERE IS THE LINK for the South Dakota plublic school exemption form. Please print, fill out, and bring with you to school on the first day. As discussed last year, add one or both of the parents’ names as instructor/s as well as BCS.

2nd : Fridays. We will still have Fridays off from organized school, but I will send home their books on Thursday and each child will need to complete one day of work with their family at home over the weekend. This will allow the parents to see exactly where the children are at with everything and build the value of learning at home as well as at school. I will be sending their readers, math workbook, language arts, vocabulary, and science/social studies (sheet/guide). This is a must.

3rd : School will run from 8:15 to 2:30, Monday -Thursday, 1st - 12th. Kindergarten will not attend on Monday …

2018-2019 School Year. It's a wrap! Thank You. Summer. & Pics.

What a blessed, challenging, and beautiful school year. I am very grateful for the opportunity to grow in faith and experience life with the children of BCS and their families - and all the volunteers!

I continue to learn so much as I teach and watch each child grow and change and begin their individual relationship with Jesus so they can find their way/His way through this world, spreading light in a darkened world.

We ended the school year with these 2 bible verses for the last week and focused on taking them into the world this summer.

Romans 10:15 How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news. 
John 1:5 The light shines in the darkness and the darkness can never extinguish it. 

I pray that Jesus will fill the children and their families with the courage to be a light and share the good news over the next four months. We have the great promise of eternal life. There is no more death, Jesus defeated it when he rose from the dead! It's so exciting and beautiful. So G…
