Combining Multiple Ages in Our Homeschool for Morning Time 2023-2024

I love to combine lessons with my kids as much as possible because

  • it makes it easier on me,
  • I get more time to spend with them,
  • it’s fun for both them and me,
  • we get to do some classes/lessons we wouldn’t get to do otherwise!

Our Homeschool Verses of the Year:

Hemeschool Verses of the Year free download

The homeschool verses of the year for 2023-2024 are:

  • Hebrews 12:1-3 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted.”
  • James 1:19-20 ” Be quick to hear, slow to speak , slow to anger, for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.”
  • Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
