Hello, my name is Courtney Vipperman. For the past fifteen years I have been an owner/operator of a home daycare. I would teach each child from the age of 2 & up and assist the older children with their homework and additional work during the summer to better prepare everyone for their schoolwork. I have home schooled my own children as well. Along with teaching children regular school curriculum, I have felt it my calling to teach children at their level about the Lord. I am excited to be part of Utmost Academy co-op to help your student not only grow with standard education, but in God's Word as well!
History- Bede's History of Me
Bede (pronounced like "bead") is a timeline ... who strongly resembles a ball of yarn. This lovable character introduces young children to the basics of history in a fun way–once a week–all year long. Topics include: how a timeline works, family history, the history of holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, etc.), the history of toys, the history of sports, and more. Even a little Church history is included!
History is, in a sense, a compilation of all of the victories and failures of humankind as God leads us. It is important that students not only understand the events of the past, but the significance of how those events affect their own lives. This appreciation of history will help them shape their future. Bede’s History of Me lays a groundwork for later years of study.
