Returning to Roots and Reasons – Summer 2019
“Math surrounds our daily lives; we just have to learn to see it and point it out to our children. ” ~~ Leigh Bortins, Founder
Returning to Roots & Reason:
The Art of Arithmetic
Are you ready to examine the “roots and reasons” for the classical Christian model of education? Are you determined to improve your grasp on the tools of learning? Are you eager to share some fellowship with like-minded parents? Join us this summer at a local 3-Day Practicum as we focus on “Returning to Roots and Reason: The Art of Arithmetic.”
Have you ever “played with numbers”? Have you ever encouraged your children to treat math as “playing with numbers?!” Join us this summer and find out how to study math in a whole new way, with your family!
Find a supportive community, answers to your questions, and the solution to formulating your next steps on the homeschooling journey… all by focusing on math!
Practicum Student Camps
While you learn, your children learn, too! Economically-priced day camps are available for students of all ages. Your students are sure to enjoy the group learning environment, whether they are being cared for in our nursery; playing and singing in our play camps; memorizing and drawing God’s world in our geo-drawing camps; or learning about language, writing, science, logic, debate, or public speaking in our academic camps for older students.
***Advance registration for student camps is required.***
