Apologia, "Who is my Neighbor?"

Hi Neighbors!

Have any of you ever tried any of the Apologia curriculum before?  We received the Who is my Neighbors set, and instead of using it for school curriculum we used it for devotions a few times a week.  In our Who is my Neighbor set we received the hardback book, "Who is my Neighbor?" ($39.00), along with the Notebooking Journal ($24.00) and the Coloring Book ($8.00).  This was our first experience with Apologia.  I have heard quite a few people recommend it, so I was excited to get a chance to try Apologia with our family.

To be honest we personally had to skip a few areas since as a family we do not use television, movies, and a few of the books they used, especially when discussing Bible.  Also I prefer to just read the Biblical accounts and discuss them, rather than adding to Scripture to retell the account.  We were able to skip over those portions and still use the curriculum.  The actual subject covered in this series is much needed today though, servanthood.  We need to realize and to train our children so that they will realize they are here to help others and encourage others.

My husband led off with the reading portions of "Who is my Neighbor?", and occasionally we all took turns reading.  In the reading portions they use different types of example and stories to help teach the lesson.  Some of them are true accounts, others were based on books and other media. We then discussed the questions together as a family.  You can also fill out the Notebooking Journal together as a family, with each member adding their own thoughts.The Journal also has extra activities to help reinforce the lessons being taught, like; Word Searches, verses to memorize, thoughtful questions for you to answer, praise reports, and prayer.  We personally did not use the coloring book, but for younger children this would be helpful and fun.

This is actually the third part in a series done by Apologia.  I have never seen any of the others before, but you might wish to start with the first one in the series and work your way through, although this is not necessary because each book can stand alone. Who is my Neighbor is recommended for ages 6- 14.

We have enjoyed using this series for devotions.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
