Abraham Lincoln's birthday is coming up, February 12th. I had these worksheets in my member's area before I closed it down and am now adding it here for all. 🙂

It is basically a reading comprehension sheet. There is a selection to read about Abraham Lincoln as a boy and questions to answer. There is also vocabulary for the student to look up in the dictionary, choosing the correct definition as used in the reading selection.

I hope that you can find room for it in your study of Abraham Lincoln.

This week I have the last set of questions for this series,Sounding Forth the Trumpet for Children by Peter Marshall and David Manuel.

If you don't own the book, it is a great history read for elementary to early middle school age. Heck, I even enjoyed reading it and the other two books in the series. 🙂

There are questions in the back of the book for each chapter, and that is what I put in downloadable format. It just makes it easier on my son when it comes time to answer them.

You can find the first two books here:

From Sea to Shining Sea Questions
The Light and the Glory Questions

From Sea to Shining Sea For Children - Questions This week, I have the next set of questions for From Sea to Shining Sea for Children by Peter Marshall and David Manuel.

I had planned on including this on Donnie's reading list next year, but am now thinking of going a different route. Looking it over again, I just might have him read it...ack, I don't know. 🙂 Maybe I won't have him do the questions...maybe just orally. OR, maybe I will choose a few and make it a book test! Yah, that sounds like an idea. ***I am thinking out loud here*** ;~)

In case you  missed it, here are the questions for The Light and The Glory.

The Light and The Glory For ChildrenAs I was planning for the next school year, I was thinking of having Donnie read The Light and the Glory for Children as well as the other books in the series.

I was also thinking of having him answer the questions in the back for each chapter. I decided it would be easier for Donnie if the questions were as worksheets and inserted into his school folder. If he sees it, he will remember to do it. 🙂

So, I typed them up notebook style. I am happy to share them with those of you who plan on using this book in your studies also.

Funny thing though, the past week or so, I have felt the leading to have us all learn Bible History. So, I am now researching this. 🙂 I have always wanted to dig deeper into Bible times, so I am excited.

Enjoy this Friday Freebie. I will have the other two books as Friday Freebies in the coming weeks. They are all already done. I was trying to be proactive. 🙂

And yes, I will share what I make for our Bible History Study. 😆

Usually, the Friday Freebie will end on Monday, but I think I will keep this up indefinitely.

You can find The Light and the Glory by Peter Marshall and David Manuel at Amazon or Christianbook.

 

Bronze Age

I haven't been feeling good all week. I had a fever, chills, runny nose, wheezing and a head ache. This is the 3rd time I have been sick like this in 4 months. The cold symptoms irritate my allergies and my wind pipe tightens up and it is hard to breathe. I am going to have to look hard at my diet, apparently my immune system is low.

This Friday, I have a simple reader on George Washington and the cherry tree. The pages can be printed and colored. It is 6 pages total and they would be printed front and back and then folded to make it booklet style. (I print even pages first and then re-insert to print the odd.)

In the beginning, I added the story of the cherry tree. The other pages is the story in poem format and a picture the kids can color.
