Mrs. Lantz has asked me to write a re-producible math curriculum for the 7th graders at FOUND. I felt pretty intimidated/inadequate when she first asked me, but after lots of prayer, thinking, and encouragement I’m feeling ready to take on the task. We’re going to start with the basics: a hundreds multiplication chart. I know. ”Didn’t they do that in second or third grade?!” No. They didn’t. And if they did, they can’t remember. Having your education interrupted will do that to ya. So, we’ll work on multiplication today and see how it goes!
Prayers are definitely appreciated and here are specific things you can pray for:
- That the kids will not feel discouraged or stupid.
- That the other volunteers and I clearly and creatively teach the material in a way the children can grasp.
- For me as I continue to brainstorm and create curriculum.
Also, Mrs. Lantz, Daniel, and I have a sore throat and stuffy nose from all of the pollution here. So if you could pray that we all feel better, that would be great!
