I just need to know if I am in far left field. We are putting together our preschool co-op for next fall and had a planning meeting to discuss the details. I purposed that we use Sarah’s Walk Beside Me Curriculum. It is so cute! She has created printables for each letter A-Z themed around scripture heroes from the Book of Mormon. Amazing stuff! I thought “How perfect! I want to do this with our co-op.” I was so shot down! Well there were a few “I don’t really care”s, but not enough to even form a group. The reason? “I don’t believe in mixing religion with education.” This came from a group of thirteen stay-at-home LDS moms. I really admire and respect most of them (a few I met for the first time at our planning meeting). But I need to know. Am I in far left field thinking that tracing the letter H and learning about Helaman’s Army is a beautiful thing? Or is it just best to stick with Hippos? Please, Please, Please help me see both sides and leave a comment below.
