We’re home with Nicholas and Olivia! It has been quite a couple of weeks, learning about each other. It wasn’t very long after we picked them up that it became clear that the information we received about their education levels was wrong. Both of our kids are bright, but neither of them has anything like a 4th or 5th grade education. Our kids have achieved about a preschool and kindergarten level equivalent, respectively. They are capable of learning, but will need an awful lot of help to catch up. We need to do about 5 years of intensive remedial work with them to bring them up to a level near what they should be for their ages.
In order to do that, I’m going to need some materials that will help them to learn and practice. I have made Montessori materials at home for many years, but our needs are more urgent than I can meet by making them myself now. I’m going to need to purchase materials so that we can get the kids started right away.
Because our previous giveaways have been so much fun and so successful, we are going to do another one!
An Apple for the Teacher
For every 100 apples claimed, we will give away one Apple Watch. And this time every gift is the same amount: $25.
Claim as many apples as you want. The more apples you claim, the greater your chance of winning.
To claim your apples, send your gift of $25 per apple through PayPal to nissa_@_gadboisfamily_._com
We will draw a winner (or winners) on Sunday, December 6th – St Nicholas Day. Please help us spread the word! We’re sure that lots of people will want a chance at an Apple Watch right before Christmas!
Whatever we raise in excess of our needs for materials will be put toward other projects here at the house: completion of the permanent schoolroom, completion of the third floor bedrooms for our adult children and guests, an office for our ministry, workspaces for making candles, soaps, and sewn items for our shop, a room to be used as photography studio – all in support of our ministry.
