3.1 Christian Resources: Bible Hub

Visit this website to see some basic tools for Bible study. Try looking up the Bible verse in this Update. You will note parallel verses (the same verse but in different versions for comparison), context (to see the verses before and after the one being examined), cross references (similar verse for comparison), and parallel commentaries (various commentary excerpts to explain and compare the verse under study).

3.2 Thrifty Ideas: Dollar Store Crafts

Next to recycled crafts, ones from dollar-type stores may be the least expensive. Here is a website devoted to just such crafts.

3.3 Preschool and Kindergarten: Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt with Numbers

What kid (or fun-loving adult) doesn’t enjoy good old-fashioned scavenger hunts? Hunts help reinforce skills in a fun “what’s next?” game, teach following directions, demonstrate the importance of preparation, and give multiple children an opportunity to learn good sportsmanship. Here’s a game that builds number skills with a Valentine’s theme.

3.4 Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM): Web Design

High school business courses that used to focus on “business machines” may now focus on how to design a basic website; pages, ads, or virtual storefronts on eBay or other online sales sites. A well-honed resume online may feature prominently in a student’s future. Web resources abound for all of these teaching aids from videos on YouTube to other instruction, a couple of which are listed here.
