Preparing Hearts:Alivia enjoyed her lessons this week. She has been reading the dinosaur book for several weeks now and while she enjoyed it, I think she was glad to move on to a different one.
Creation to Christ:
Here Alexis is diligently making animal tracks into the salt dough that she rolled out onto a cookie sheet. Here is where the real jewel is hidden with Heart of Dakota learning. The instructions for the activities are written directly to the students. This really frees them up so that they can easily do the activities with occasional help and supervision from mom. This actually teaches them a valuable skill--reading and following written directions. There are no diagrams or pictures, just written directions. They have to read carefully (sometimes more than once), make the activity or project, and then CLEAN UP! That's it. It's that easy! This skill is so valuable and will serve them well into their adult years.
