Broken Arrow, OK Trinity Lutheran Campus

For Week 12

Just one more week mama you can do it!

Praying complete healing for all of you who are ill. We miss you and hope to see you all next week!

Continue to trace and draw those maps at home. We are up to 273. Let's make a goal to reach 300 next week. Remember you can trace the blob maps, trace the trivium maps, and draw free hand. The idea is to get our kids to become comfortable with map drawing so eventually they can draw places from memory.

Isaiah 40: 27-31 (Message Bible) He doesn't get tired out, doesn't pause to catch his breath. And he knows everything, inside and out. He energizes those who get tired, gives fresh strength to dropouts. For even young people tire and drop out, young folk in their prime stumble and fall. But those that wait upon God get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like Eagles. The run and don't get tired, they walk and don't lag behind.

If you are interested in participating let me know. We will most likely meet five times and would like for you to finish the course if you commit to begin it.

Week 11 Lesson Plans

Our tutors have uploaded their weekly lessons plans to a google doc to assist you at home. One or two things may be different but most of the information should be the same that was presented in class. I hope you find this helpful.
