"If Psalm 1 is to be believed, we must not allow our children to stand, sit or walk with those who deny biblical truth and morality. Instead, we must place them in situations that will aid them in meditating on the law of the Lord 'day and night.' Surely this involves how and where they are to be educated." — Voddie T. Baucham Jr.

I love stickers

I got My Big Book of Stickers for Janelle yesterday at the thrift store for $1. I looked it up on Amazon and it was originally $11. It has 600 stickers of all kinds of things like farm animals, dinosaurs, jobs people do, and places around the world. I really like it for a number of reasons.

1) Since Janelle is a visual learner she befits from pictures. Each picture is labeled as to what it is so you are learning about all kinds of things, not just putting the sticker wherever you want to.

2) She has to use her hands to peel the stickers from the sticker page being careful not to tear them, and then place them in the correct place. This is a great exercise in dexterity and hand eye coordination which she will need for writing among many other things.

3) She can't do this by herself. Each sticker is numbered and has a certain place. So she needs me to read the numbers for her and show her which page and place to put them. Which lends itself to a bonding experiences and increases her chances of academic success.(See below)

4) It makes her happy. She loves stickers and has since yesterday begged me to do sticker book with her several times.

Not bad for $1.
