We hope the end of your school year is concluding successfully. By this time of the year, you are likely doing one or more of the following: Trying to cover just a few more pages or a couple more chapters Preparing a portfolio and getting ready for your evaluation interview Participating in end of year programs Contemplating summer plans Planning for the next school year This is also a time to reflect on what worked well in the past year and what needs to be adjusted for the next one. I am doing the same with Lightlabetc.com and with the science classes I taught in 2021-2022. Besides having the pleasure of teaching Physics for the third year at Claritas Classical Academy, I was able to delve deeply into Astronomy, Color Theory, and Climate Change. This happened through a series of invitations from different Christian institutions that wanted me to offer their students more STEM education. There were also some Lightlab engagements at a couple of churches and workshops at the MASSHOPE 2022. While the Lightlab workshops went well due to many years of practice, the recent STEM curricula need some editing and testing before I distribute them to a wider audience. It will be worth persevering for the sake of the new generation, and I thank the Lord for His faithfulness so far. It was definitely a joy to teach these subjects while freely sharing about God as Creator and Redeemer. It was also an encouragement for the students to […]

Author: Susan August Published in: ENOCH of NJ Newsletter Published on: Oct. 1, 2007 Even though we’ve been homeschooling for many years now, I have yet to write out my “philosophy of education.” Every homeschool magazine recommends that each family should write down very specific goals before beginning their homeschool journey. I have to admit that the task seems overwhelming to me. I tend to be a very methodical person and have used this as my excuse to procrastinate on the issue of written goals. I figured that if I just followed a chosen curriculum, it would probably take us where I wanted to go. As my son Jack gets older, however, I’m beginning to realize that there are much broader goals to be reached. These goals are way beyond the scope of any curriculum that is currently available. When I picture Jack as an adult, it helps me know what direction I want to head in, in order to equip him for manhood. Besides equipping him academically, there are countless principles I want to instill in him. Following are some examples that come to mind. As adults, we’ve all faced circumstances that have stretched us beyond what we thought we could handle. I want Jack to learn to welcome challenges rather than avoid them. How can I teach him this? How did I handle the first ten weeks of the school year when our curriculum covered simple machines, electricity and the internal combustion engine? Although I felt completely out of […]

Hello, Friends! This is such a fun month, don’t you think?  It’s the breaking of a new calendar season when much of New York seems to be rejuvenated from a long winter’s sleep.  Whether you choose to homeschool through the summer months or take a break, the opportunities of togetherness with friends and family are more prevalent.  In fact, I personally enjoy it so much that I tend to lose track of time, and I am grateful for my outdoor grill, crock-pot, and pressure cooker for always getting me through the daily task of dinner! As I said, I am hoping Tis the Season gets an invite to your home this summer, and as your guest, I will share some of my tried-and-true meals and desserts with easy and affordable options. I have over fifteen different spice blends, each of them offering unique, easy, and flavorful options.  However, one of my favorite summertime meals is fish on the grill….if you cut lemon slices and place them on your grill, then place your fish on top of the lemon slices, you’ll not only get a lemon flavor added to your fish, but also the fish won’t stick to the grill, making cleanup quick and easy.  If you’re not a grill cooker, simply use our Roasted Herb Rub for a rich flavor of paprika, garlic, and a small pinch of cayenne pepper on any prime cut of beef or pork, and stick it in your crock-pot or pressure cooker so you do not have to endure any […]
