Just a quick note to catch you all up on what’s been happening in Aunt Phil’s world.
I’ve been in Sacramento since January hugging on grandsons Toben (4), Connor and Zach (2) and Aiden (3). Toben is now in his last month of chemo to eradicate leukemia from his little body. Thank God all the treatments seem to be working and soon he will go on a maintenance program for about three years. So hard to watch a child go through this, but it does look like all our prayers are being answered!
When not surrounded by little guys, I’ve been working hard to develop a curriculum for my Aunt Phil’s Trunk five-book Alaska history series. Volumes One and Two are complete, with both workbooks and teacher guides, and I anticipate the entire five-book curriculum to be finished and available by August 2017 – just in time for the new school year.
This curriculum includes quizzes, discussion ideas, links to more about topics and word puzzles using information from the chapters in the books. It is geared for fourth through twelfth grades.
Anchorage Frontier Charter Schools, which has seen proofs of the first set of curriculum books, says it will enthusiastically recommend Aunt Phil’s Trunk and its curriculum for its students’ Alaska history studies. Exciting times!
Summer will be upon us soon, so if you are in Anchorage be sure to visit me at the downtown market at 3rd and F streets on the weekends. Aunt Phil will be there from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays from May 27 to August 20.
