"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.

Courage Week 3

On Monday we talked about Pocahontas and Sacagewea. We dressed as Indians and made a headdress with construction paper. We set up a tent and read two books about our Native American heroines.  We also watched a couple of videos.
Tuesday we talked about Rosa Parks. That was the best. We first talked about segragation. We put all the solid pillows on one couch and the patterned pillows on a another couch. The pillows are now segregated.
Then we put all the pink blocks in one pile and the blue blocks in another pile. The blocks are now segregated.

We then took some dolls and put all of the big dolls together and the small dolls together. The dolls are now segregated.

Once I knew that she understood what segregation meant we read our books. We then dramatized the story and that was so much fun. We also talked about what a boycott was and how it was used to change the laws. Here is the video we watched.
Wednesday we talked about Sybil Ludington and watched her story on Liberty Kids which you can get now on Amazon for $5. Thursday was Joan of Arc and William Tell. We watched William Tell on Adventures from the Book of Virtures. We made a banner with the Fleur-de-lis.

We finished the week at Co-op. The kids put on a play of William Tell. They had 30 minutes to write a script, asign characters, make costumes, reherse and preform the play. They did a great job and had a lot of fun.
We had so much fun! I can't wait till next week.
