A special 13-year-old girl that I was so blessed to meet in Uganda, (when I was there less than 2 1/2 months ago), went to Heaven yesterday.  I am so sad that I will not get to see her next summer.  What a sad loss...only 13 and a whole life ahead of her.  Praise God the she is no longer sick in Heaven now!

Fresh Ideas to Engage your Children in Learning

Fresh Ideas to Engage your Children in Learning

Teachers need fresh ideas and practical solutions to engage their children in learning. Let us give you some terrific ideas so your child will enjoy learning and retain information better.  Our goal is to resource teachers so children are engaged and stay on task for the learning experience. 

            First, the teacher must realize the learning style of the child.  Many teachers are most comfortable teaching in their personal learning style but that might not be a match with the child or children being taught.  We will discover ways to identify the learning styles of the child and how we can adapt our methods to best fit and tailor to the learner.  Mr. Mark explains several practical ideas each teacher should work to employ in their classroom time.  Variety will always help make learning fun and exciting but teachers need ideas.  Mr. Mark’s Classroom is constantly buzzing with new resources and helps that assist teachers  with the variety they seek and it’s free.

            Second, the early childhood and early elementary children are most responsive to eight unique actions the teacher can always use.  By knowing how to use sensory, relationships, curiosity, imitation, play, repetition, satisfaction, and hands-on learning in the classroom, the teacher will discover greater engagement and even less behavior issues.  Mr. Mark uses these tried and true methods weekly and has created such fun experiences he will share with our teachers to use immediately.

            Check out his website at and begin seeing the many ideas available to you already.  Join us September 28 from 7pm-8:30pm EST to hear him teach us the wonderful methods that will refresh you in your planning and presenting material to your children.  Mr. Mark offers a free book at his website filled with easy ideas you can download now.

We are in need of a classroom for our oldest students, other than what we have been using!  We are truly in Urgent need so that our students, school supplies, and hanging chart do not continually become destroyed by the rains we have been having.  PLUS, it needs to be done so as to keep the entire school open as far as the government rules go.  Here is what we woke up to.
