>> “Oh glorious morning! My 9yo daughter just came to me in confusion. She was being asked to find the perimeter of a square one side of which was 34”. Rather than answer her question, I decided to use the topics of invention to help her discover the answer (they’re fresh in my mind, as I am teaching lesson 2 ‘Invention’ tomorrow).
“What is a square?” I asked her. “What are its parts?” “How is a square like a rectangle?”, “How is a square different from a rectangle?” It wasn’t long before a glorious smile spread across her face. “OOOHHHHH!” she said through her priceless grin. “I get it!” Today’s motto: “The 5 Topics….they’re not just for writing anymore!”
Thank you Andrew and Camille, & Renee, & Buck, & David & the list goes on… for putting together these powerful tools of THINKING and making them so accessible to us all!

>>”Lately I’ve been engaging in what I can only describe as “informal LTW seminars” with the homeschoolers at my church. The reaction is always the same. Literal tears as they are encouraged to teach from a place of peace and rest, not anxiety.”
