You may have noticed in Practicum this summer and throughout the Foundations Curriculum, Fifth Edition, that we are placing a renewed focus on simplicity in the Foundations years. Leigh Bortins says in her introductory letter on page three that she has the same words of advice as she did twenty years ago…

Enjoy these precious years with your young children.

Delight in their continual discoveries of new truths about God’s world.

Praise them for working hard to memorize and recite His truths.

Join the Foundations Academic Team as they walk through some pages of the Foundations Curriculum, Fifth Edition and discuss enjoying the years, delighting in discoveries, and praising students.

Have you ever thought about how reading thought provoking literature prepares us and our children to face situations? Come join this conversation!

Why do students study short stories in Challenge B? And why is “The Necklace” a story that is enjoyed on so many different levels by students and adults? This tale, with its surprise ending, opens our eyes to the importance of how the desires of our heart can change the course of our life in an inkling. How can a character be so self-absorbed in her own beauty and worldly desires yet rise to play the part of a hero? Listen as we discuss this timeless story.
