Week 3

This week we experimented with cyanotype prints. If you'd like to experiment more at home, I discovered that they work better if you stick to flatter items that can be pressed down with a sheet of plastic or glass. Page protectors will work fine. The larger items kept us from pressing down on our images very well. Lesson learned! Leave them in the sun for 10 minutes, rinse for 2 minutes, and then dry.

Classical, Christian Education

“For His sake, I’m driven to inspire my children with a love of learning and life that boils out of their spirits even in the most difficult of situations. I feel compelled to ‘ride horses up the White House stairs’ as Teddy Roosevelt did with his children . . . I want them to know that everyone they encounter can be their teacher and that they are to inspire each person they meet to draw a little closer to our Father in heaven. Life is but a vapor, but it’s also a divine journey – a journey that can result in unspeakable joy and heart-satisfying peace that passes all understanding.” —Leigh Bortins, Echo in Celebration, (3)

Foundations to Challenge

Today, you and your students will memorize the order of pronouns. This memory work teaches students the structure of English and prepares them to learn the structure of Latin. Knowing the pronoun order prepares students to learn the verb endings that go with each verb, which is especially important in Latin. They will build on this memory work first in Essentials when they work on verb anatomy charts, an activity which then prepares them to conjugate verbs in Latin for all six levels of Challenge.
