I am so excited, I just had to post this. Our Greek texts finally arrived in the mail. I know I’m getting ahead of myself. I had planned on telling you why we chose to teach Greek and then how we have taught it up to this point, but these books look like so much fun, I just had to share. Our children already know the Greek alphabet and they have been learning to read decode Greek, but we finally received our order from of “Hey Andrew, Teach Me Some Greek“. These workbooks are going to be fun, especially since our children are exposed to very few workbooks.
Don’t think that you can’t teach Greek. The goal of this series is to enable children to be able to read and translate the book of John. We will be incorporating our Greek vocabulary with our memorization box every morning at breakfast, so consistent review should be straight forward.
I’m only starting our fluent-chapter-book-readers in these workbooks, our beginning readers will continue to practice reading Greek before we start them in the workbooks, but they will be learning vocabulary with us, so should have a head start when they begin. I’ll let you know how it goes.
How many of you are studying Greek also? Comments and advice are welcome, as always.

I know I’ve been slower than some of you would like on adding homeschooling posts, but I am working on it, so hang in there. :) In the meantime, you can read what I have already written about homeschooling.
