What About Extracurricular Activities?
Extracurricular activities are a wonderful addition to any program and can be held throughout the year. This is a great time to become closer with your children and enjoy them in new ways. Hikes, picnics, hayrides, trips to museums, or camping out with them are all great ways to spend time learning new skills and building family relationships.
Special award parties can be given for completing Bible memory or a finish your projects party can be held as an incentive to help children complete their projects. It may often take some extra one on one effort on the part of an adult to help some children finish their project. This can sometimes make the difference between a child seeing himself as capable, or possibly coming to think of himself as a loser. Look for opportunities to help your children succeed by helping them to complete their tasks. The program, by design, avoids the idea of winners and losers. Every child, with proper guidance and help, can be a completer with confidence and competence.
I received your catalog and learned so much about applying the Bible to every day life just by reading your catalog! Your explanation of how you choose books brought conviction to me about how I have chosen my entertainments in the past and I am praying to make changes based on your biblical example and arguments. I have ordered as many as I can afford right now and plan to just check off each one until I own everything that you sell. Thank you for all of the care that you put into your selections and for being trustworthy.
