Growing Relationships through Godly Wisdom Teach Your Children Three Dimensional Emotional Intelligence This Summer
by Ken Sande
When Corlette and I were homeschooling our children, we struggled far more with relational issues than we did with academic content. Put four sinful people together 24/7 and the relational meltdowns will override your lesson plans again and again.
Summer Reading Contest
by Lexi Detweiler
One of my favorite things to do with my toddler, Ava, is go to the library. We go at least every other week to refresh our supply of books. Ava loves getting new books, but she also loves reading new titles about her favorite characters: Ladybug Girl, Betty Bunny, Clifford, and Eloise, to name a few. I enjoy browsing through the older books that I used to read when I was little: “The Giving Tree”, “Madeline”, and anything by Kevin Henkes. I always sneak a few of those into the bag so that I can read them to her. Except now when I read these books, I read them as a parent and it’s so cool to see the perspective change.

Teachers typically spend 1,080 hours in a school year with a child. That’s more time for influencing a child toward a love of learning than parents or peers invest in a child’s life. It is essential, therefore, for teachers to realize how critically important their attitudes are in the process of educating students. Children easily pick up on how information is communicated to them and also how the teacher perceives each one in the class.
To teach creatively, it is important to use a multisensory approach as often as possible. Frequent review and use of the five learning gates of taste, touch, smell, sight, and hearing increase the potential for the child to retain the subject matter.
Failure in teaching the distracted child often results from neglecting to properly prepare and a teacher’s lack of energy. The best results are achieved when the teacher concentrates on making memories with the students, remembering that they are helping to create future adults.
