We have a new presidential biography for you this month. We accept suggestions for biographies which would be helpful in your work with your students.

Harry S. Truman, 33rd President of the United States, became president when Franklin D. Roosevelt died in 1945. World War 2 was in progress and the new president was thrust into a role for which he felt unprepared. Japan would not surrender and the United States had developed a new weapon which could end the war quickly. What should he do? Read how Truman met the challenges of the presidency in the 1940's.

Garden of Praise has recently partnered with K5 Learning to introduce you to a new learning system which can be valuable to you in providing extra help and tutoring for your child after school, or can be integrated into your homeschool curriculum.

The program includes a free assessment of your child's skills, a personalized program of study, and free reports to parents. Five key reading skills and three math skills are assessed. There are thousands of educationally sound activities to remediate weaknesses.

There is a 14 Day free trial period and no credit card is taken until you sign up for the course.

When you visit Garden of Praise and get to your profile page you will see blue tabs. You will be able to post comments which will be public, or you can contact members directly by email if they have selected that option. You can add pictures (see the "instructions" for doing this). You can find friends, view your classes, or view the results of tests you have given. Over 10,000 people have registered. We would encourage you to add your picture to your profile to make our community a friendly place to visit.

We at Garden of Praise stand ready to help you.

Your friend in education,
Patsy Stevens
