Schole' in Practice - Week 16


This was our first week back to school from our long holiday break.  The kids were excited to be back and you could feel the energy on campus!  Re-enrollment has begun in our Community.  Open enrollment will begin February 1st for anyone interested in joining our Schole' group.  We have been busy praying and planning for next year already and some exciting changes are coming!

We are expanding next year to include a beautiful program for 4-6 year olds that involves working with the assisted living residents we serve monthly this year.  They are located next door to our current campus.  We are also adding a second day for the upper elementary and middle school students.  Finally, we are expanding to add a Middle School option next year!  God has been good and we are enjoying the blessings of pursuing Schole' together.  If you are interested in learning more about SGCA, you can go to www.solagratia.scholegroups.com.

Join us as we share our Schole' moments from this week…

Principles of Mathematics by Katherine Loop (Review)



If you have been with me for a while, you already know that I'm a fan of Katherine Loop.  I reviewed her previous two books Revealing Arithmetic and Beyond Numbersand absolutely loved her presentation of math not being a neutral subject.  After finishing up a study on Plato and his ideas about mathematics continually being discovered and not invented by man, my thoughts of God being at the core of math, are further cemented and the desire to see children grasp that concept as Christians is so important in today's "neutral" society.  Have you tried to find a truly Biblical math curriculum?  The best I've seen until now, is math presented as a neutral subject, with a Bible Verse thrown somewhere on the page.  Introducing Book 1, Principles of MATHematics, Biblical Worldview Curriculum by Katherine Loop!  Here are my thoughts on this new math curriculum…

Schole in Practice - Learning Celebration #2


Right before our Thanksgiving and Christmas break, we had our 2nd Learning Celebration to punctuate what the kids had been learning in Great Books.  If you've been following our Community online, then you know we have been learning the elements of a story through the use of various ancient cinderella storybooks.  We ended with The Egyptian Cinderella book and then the kids began working together on a play, to act out the story.
