Foundations & Essentials 8, Challenge Week 11
Education isn't something that happens to you, it's something you choose.
Foundations: Digging Deeper At Home
Are you working on Exodus 20 at home? It is totally optional, but if you are looking for a quick way to practice - here is the song I am using - you can download it in the format of your choice. And here is a printout of Exodus if you'd like it.
So you are singing the Latin Noun Declensions and thinking to yourself - Um, WHY? But (hopefully) you are doing it anyway. Let me give you some inspiration from this...
- Fungus, Fungi (Second Declension, Nominative, Singular and Plural!)
- Antenna, Antennae (First Declension, Nominative, Singular and Plural!)
(Do you have a resource to share? Send it to me!)

Director Spotlight: Jennifer Slemmer, Foundations & Essentials
Jennifer has been the Director of Foundations & Essentials for 5 years. She has been homeschooling for 8 years and recently discovered that this makes her 'experienced', something that makes her laugh cause she is still figuring out how to make it through each day!!
Jennifer has been married to Leroy for 20 years and they have Erica (Challenge I), Ryan (Challenge A), Nathan & Amanda (both Foundations). They love to travel and see the country; they are planning a month-long road trip this summer to Utah and all things in between. They have a travel trailer that they love and they collect stamps in their passport books whenever they can. They have visited over 15 National Parks and monuments. When Jennifer has a spare moment, she likes to read, crochet, and create on the computer.
