Our focus board for August
I know this is a bit late as we're 1/3 almost of the way through the month but I thought I'd post anyway. We have a large bulletin board above our dining table. As its a place we use every day(!)I thought it would be a good place to emphasize some of our learning that takes place. It usually contains something from all he areas of study that we are currently focusing on. So for English we'll put up our current greek or latin roots for that week. For literature and the seasons there may be some poems.There will usually be an aspect of our geography study plus something on history too.If the boys are interested in something in particular fro nature or science that will go up too.Lastly we add something about the saints we are reading about this month. because each month has a faith focus above the main illustrations will be the dedication for the month.
This month is dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. However I wanted to emphasize to the boys that Mary only ever points us to her son and the mercy and redemption that is found in His most sacred heart.
