Week 16.

Middle of the six weeks is here. Hope everyone is doing well and hanging in there. I am proud of my class. While they were giving their presentations on famous scientists and inventors...I could not help but think that I was looking a six pretty amazing kids and how God was going to raise them up to do incredible things for His glory. How exciting!!

Presentation for next week: Bible recitations: 2-5 min. Memorize a passage from the Bible that is meaningful to you. Use props and pictures to enhance. Focus on volume. Appropriate volume for the audience and the space you are speaking in. Clear and loud enough to be heard by all, but not screaming. 

Love all my moms who assist me in class!!! You are awesome. Miss you Christine!

Week 15!!!

Can you guys believe it is already week 15??? What have been your favorite things to learn along side your kids??? I am learning so much through homeschooling. I do get pretty excited about the art. Bless Rebekah for letting me teach the art and she the science. 

Sooo...this week, don't forget the expository speech (exposing the truth) about a famous scientist or inventor. The students need to talk a little about the life of the person and their contribution to the world. Pictures or examples are always nice to have. The focus will be on eye contact. Teach your students how to look others in the eye. It is such a lost practice with youth. 

Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you all as parents or friends. Thank you for all your support in class and out.
