For the bug lovers out there, there are still some, but cartoon images this time

Homeschooling looks different in different places. This picture is from Uganda. My husband has a friend, who is a refugee there himself, though in college. The kids in the refugee camp have had limited access to education, especially since COVID requirements shut down all meetings, including schools. He wanted to do something for them and started talking with my husband about homeschooling and it developed into a plan. He started a non-profit and got together some laptops and teachers. The teachers take the laptops to homes two hours at a time. They get in three homes before the battery dies. There is limited electricity in the camp, but the teachers charge the laptops overnight. The only focus is literacy and computer literacy. Many of these kids have never touched a computer before. The university student, our friend, is taking our EP coding course and has plans to teach the kids coding to try and work towards getting them into jobs. There are way more kids wanting to take part than can at this point, so I am sure this idea of his will keep growing.
Math 4 is getting daily fraction practice for a good part of the year, and the answer key has word problems worked out as much as we could
My husband finished the Biblical Hebrew course which you see on the site, and is planning to add to it as he is able. He is still working on the Romani Bible translation, a big undertaking, but they have made tons of progress. He meets weekly (online) with Roma families and they read the Bible together in Romani and pray together. I am working on some more miracle stories for our site as well. I will hopefully be getting those up over the next several weeks. I also am working on getting together more of the Good Morning, Lord! lessons edited into books and then getting those edited versions onto our EP site and the videos uploaded to YouTube. I have written over 300 at this point.
The rest of the work we’re officially doing you probably know about from the site. Thanks for partnering with us and being part of our EP family. I know many of you are also my dear brothers and sisters in Christ. I’m thankful He’s brought us together for such a time as this.
New Courses and Books 2022
Update: The last math books are being published this week. I will start working on getting all the new links on the site this week. Once everything is ready, I’ll have a new post here with more info specific to each course so you can be confident about the changes and what they mean to you. All the new math books have a big NEW badge on them. The new courses when they appear in My EP will all also say NEW on them. You’ll be able to know for sure you are using the new update!
Below is the information I released before on the new Math 1, 2, and 3 courses. Here’s the new info. We’re releasing updates to Math 4 and Math 5 as well. Math 5 is getting more examples in the lessons and parent guide as well as being reworked a little in a few places. Other little updates in the books include replacing all the bug pictures. I had also asked in the Preschool and Kindergarten facebook group for your children’s names. citas padres solteros I used that list and worked to include lots of new names into the new math courses. ??
