Betsy Ross (Ch 17)



Character Lessons:

Jordan continued reading through the FIAR Bible and character lessons. We split up any remaining scripture verses over the rest of the week. I try to give him a “daily Bible bite” to accompany his assigned scripture verses.

Memory Verse:

I assigned Deuteronomy 10:18 as Jordan’s memory verse while rowing this chapter.


Writing and Discussion Question:

Jordan and I talked about whether or not Betsy Ross created the first American flag. He believes she wasn’t the first, because the timeline doesn’t fit.


The Revolutionary War:

In addition to reading the FIAR teacher’s manual, we continued our FIAR suggested reading of Everything You Need to Ace American History in One Big Fat Notebook which covered the Revolutionary War.

George Washington:

In addition to reading the FIAR manual, Jordan read Who Was George Washington?

Legends of Famous Americans:

I added several of Disney’s American tall tales to our Betsy Ross playlist.


Constellations Continued:

Jordan continued reading Find the Constellations, a book suggested from the “Why Do Stars Twinkle”, science unit from chapter 13.

He created cards for the new constellations he read about this week.
