What is LDS Homeschooling?

LDS Stands for Latter-Day Saints. LDS people are Mormons. They are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. You can learn more about this church and its beliefs at About the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints

LDS Homeschooling is teaching our children the Gospel of Jesus Christ, from doctrines of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, in our homeschools, which is legal. Just like people of other faiths have the freedom right now, to teach their beliefs in their homeschool, so also do members of this church.

In the public schools, teaching religion is not allowed. Secularism is taught in schools. This is a freedom from religion in schools. It is not a respect for all religions, but a lack of respect for any religion in particular, keeping everyone from the teaching of any religious beliefs in the government-funded and government-run schools.

Secularism requires that the most recent theories developed by scientists who do not add religion to their theories, are taught to the students. Currently in the world, there are a great many political beliefs and philosophies of humankind taught in the public schools. In the U.S.A., I include the charter schools, since they are also controlled by the Common Core or an exact likeness of the same in most non common core states.

If you, your childrens’ other parent and your children are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, then there is no reason to feel guilty about the legality of or the time in your day, taken up in teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ in your homeschool. You can start small and with something very simple, and add or change things with time.

Here is an idea for how to begin to teach the gospel during the daytime, family-home-evening style in a way that is cost-free, using free resources peprovided by the church.

I recommend that together, you sing primary song or hymn, followed by a family prayer (for all present). I call this the devotional, and do not do it every day. I just do it as much as possible. I would like it if I were more consistent, but I am o.k. with doing my best. You should be, too.

When you feel ready to move beyond having this simple devotional, you may wish to add some small additional item. It does not have to be formal. You can teach the gospel while working and talking together, or while walking and talking together!

Here are some free church resources to use as references and helps in the Gospel education of your kids:

The Childrens Illustrated Scripture Stories
The Scriptures
the primary manuals (organized by age)
the current or past year primary theme and lessons
The Childrens Songbook
The Hymn Book

“Gospel Essentials”
“Gospel Doctrine”

Propogandizing Pearson-made Online Language Arts Assignment

This was posted online:

“I’m going to add kindle to the fire here and add the exact assignment which was the catalyst for all my research against Common Core. It was an online “Vocabulary” assignment (through pearsonsuccessnet) given last year, in CSD, to my fourth grader. I think it fits well in this thread of comments. Pure manipulation of a young mind: indoctrination at it’s best!”

O.k., First of all, what does this have to do with Language arts vocabulary teaching?

Second, why do we need a child to suggest to our child’s mind, that the government (they mean the federal government) should take on the responsibility if making sure everyone can read and write? Why does this not happen to be a girl thinking of an idea to have mothers and fathers make sure this happens? (Of course! They are too stupid and weak–sorry! I have forgotten this, here. Silly me!) Why does this not happen to be a girl thinking of writing a letter to her neighbor, to ask her neighbor to go volunteer in her local school to teach kids to read? (Oh, I know! That would maybe show less dependence on the feds– oopsy, we cannot have that!) It would maybe give some power and responsibility to local school districts and local adults read projects, instead of giving the power and responsibility to the feds. (Again, oopsy, that would not help with the propoganda goals!)

Third, um, you were studying the Constitution and thought of this idea. Yeah, when we were kids and studied the Constitution, I remember reading that one part where it makes me think of how the feds need to make sure everyone knows how to read and write. What part of the Constitution were your studying which made you come up with this, out of the blue, dear invented child?

As if!

Oh, and lest we forget, this is a LANGUAGE ARTS lesson!

*Special Note: Online lessons sometimes given to kids who do work online from home. Beware, homeschooling parents! This is an online lesson kids do from home! Watch out for things like this on your own computer screen at home!

Costs You Nothing? Paid for by Tax Dollars? Common Core!

I have been seeing a lot of people asking whether this CHARTER SCHOOL school or that CHARTER SCHOOL uses Common Core.

I have also seen people claiming that this or that school is free, but does not use Common Core.

ALL CHARTER SCHOOLS USE COMMON CORE.

If a school is a private school and you pay money because the government is not paying your tuition for you, they may not be common core aligned, but some private schools are now.

Public charter, free online and public regular schools in Utah are Common core aligned. If your private school says it now gets to be free to you because it has been approved by the state Charter school board, it is now a Common Core Aligned Charter school.

If it has a lottery, or you have to apply and get on a waiting list, but do not have to pay money, it is aligned with Common Core.

Schools that do not cost you money, cost us our freedom.

They are Common Core aligned. Common Core aligned schools will appear not to be so. The will offer programs or classes that are very different from the norm, or say you can teach your own kids in the home, or say you can let your child learn by online or distance learning. This does not matter in the call for whether it be common core or not.

If the school does not ask you for tuition money, or for money to buy the curriculum, you can have assured unrest, because I assure you, it is COMMON CORE aligned!

It is paid for by adding more debt to the bank account of the United States of America, which is the Federal Reserve, which is owned by the Bilderberg Group. This U.S. Debt will be owed the Federal Reserve and paid to Scholastic, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Pearson, and multiple curriculum and technology companies.
