This week we've been learning about the Pilgrims. You may ask why we didn't study them in November? We First-graders at Cornerstone Christian Academy study history from Creation to Modern man, sequentially. Our focus was more on Old Testament events, so we're zooming through American history these last few weeks.
Abigail (second Pilgrim girl from left) and Sarah (far right) were quizzing themselves with Math flash cards last Friday. I overheard a wonderful conversation that went something like this:
Sarah: Abigail! You're doing so well. You've not missed ANY! We just need to stop and praise the Lord!!
Abigail: You're right! Praise the Lord!
Sarah: Okay, next. 8+6 equals...?
Sarah: Right, Abigail.
Abigail: Praise the Lord!!
Sarah: 9+7 equals...
Sarah: Right, good job!
Abigail: Praise the Lord!!!
And so on they went for another 5 minutes, practicing Addition facts and praising the Lord for giving them good brains.
