We are still a little behind in History and Geography. The good news is that this means we are still learning about the United States. Why is this good? This gives me a great opportunity to teach in context! 😉 Before we move on to any other country we will get to learn about how we choose our President!
The Old Schoolhouse sent an email offering a free DVD about Election Day: Choosing Our President! All you have to pay is Shipping and Handling! We are waiting for it to get here, hoping we get it before election day. I am hoping to watch the DVD with the boys before we take them with us to vote.
As we cover the election process it will be a great time to discuss the power of one vote and what an awesome thing it is to live in a country where we can choose our leaders in this way. It will be important for us to look at how we can be good stewards of this right.
As we learn about other countries and as inauguration day approaches, I am sure this will be an ongoing discussion.
We might not be keeping up with the schedule I had planned, but God has it all worked out 😉
