As part of homeschool, often Nathan and Melanie’s kids give a short presentation on Friday evenings, sharing about one thing they learned. During their school meeting with Melanie the day of, they pick out what they want to share, practice it, and then present it.
It’s a great learning opportunity for the child to articulate to their listeners clearly, and it helps cement it in their minds.
Nathan had to work late last Friday, so Melanie and kids joined us for the evening. We all loved listening to the presentations. I haven’t heard one for a long time, and wow, they are in-depth and technical.
Abby first began by reciting the entire chapter of James 1. It was beautiful.
Here Abby showed us some math functions, including how to reduce fractions.
Betsy explained to us Elapsed Time and then calculated it, all the while telling us how she did it.
Tina demonstrated her spelling abilities, having Mom read off a list of words.
Drew showed us how he programmed this little mouse to do what he wanted it to.

begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”
