For the younger crowd.
We still enjoy Liberty's Kids.
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
Sounding Forth The Trumpet Questions
As 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.
You can find The Light and the Glory by Peter Marshall and David Manuel at Amazon or Christianbook.
The Light and the Glory Questions
It includes the poem and questions to go along with the poem.

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.
