Re: Need help fitting it all in

cherryfruit, I have been praying for you!! real quick...the baby just woke up...i read (again) To Train Up a Child by Michael and Debi Pearl. I put their "method" into action.

Re: WHL what things are the students supposed to check ...

I have my daughter check all her work and write out corrections to the problems she missed. I just do the grading. I think this method helps her to understand the content better. I am not sure what MFW recommends, however. It seems as if it might be addressed in the instruction guide? Not sure.

Re: Writing assignments in WHL

We are in week 19 of WHL. Off the top of my head: recently, a letter to the editor about Martin Luther, an editorial about the crusades, oh, and I think there had been another but I can't recall right now!! ;)

Re: AHL and AWANA

Charlotte, i TOTALLY agree that i don't want bible study to become an academic chore. She loves awana and is motivated by the awards as well as the social and leadership opportunities it provides.
