Fun and education at Beacon

You most likely know Legacy Christian Academy as a traditional Monday through Friday school.

Did you know, however, that all day on Friday home school students enjoy enrichment classes and participate in monthly activities at as part of their Beacon Program? I am blessed to be one of them.

These classes are not only fun but educational. There is a computer math class called Mind Math that is better known to students as Jiji. It involves a penguin that you need to direct through different levels by completing math problems that depend on your grade level. For example, right now I am doing fractions, exponents and decimals.

Adorable placemats were created in art class that displayed traditional ancient Greek pots and were later used in a Thanksgiving feast. The science class has been learning about minerals and how there are three different types of rocks.

Currently in computer class, pamphlets are being created for a made up world. My world is called Planet Claire. It includes a grass hedge in the shape of a peace sign that is said to have been there for 3 million years. This hedge can be found in the capital city of “Clairion.”

In Spanish class, posters are being made that include Spanish names for the body parts. Music class has included learning musical notes on the keyboard and listening to a sonata by Mozart. One of the best parts of the day happens in drama class. Students have been practicing for a performance of “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.” I am pleased to play the part of the White Witch.

The Beacon program isn’t just classes. It also includes chapel time, history assemblies and Snow Day. I look forward to the Bible devotional and the singing. During the history assemblies we have been “visited” by Albert Einstein, Amelia Earhart, BB King, Sandra Day O’Connor and many more. Snow is brought in for Snow Day and a sled is even made out of hay bales.

I enjoy Beacon because I spend time with my friends.
