Third Week of February

Friday--This was a hectic day for us. I had to be up early to take my husband in for a shoulder manipulation, settle him back in at home and then be the sole host for our Friday Enrichment Club because my co-host had that bad flu. It went well. My husband has most of his motion back and the kids were good.

Monday to Thursday--the school week was good with little interruption.

Rhythmic drill--counting and multiplication tables for 1, 2, 3 and 5's

Mathematics Exploration--my youngest explore "how many more?" and my oldest worked on problems from the Singapore Math text with rods and large numbers.

Phonics--We learned the sounds of "oy" and "oi." Reviewed the sounds of all the previous phonograms with my new binder that I made up of all my phonogram pictures.

Story--the story this week was Aesop's "The Dog and the Oyster."

Math--my youngest worked on earlybird math doing "how many more?" pages and my oldest worked on addition and subtraction with regrouping problems.

Composition--My oldest wrote her version of the story for the week. It was very cute.

Latin--We began chapter 2 of Minimus and learned all about what a dinner party would be like in Roman times.

My Pals are Here Science--We read about matter and mass.

We also did copywork and form drawing as usual.

On Thursday we had a playdate and it was a lot of fun.

I hope everyone else has had a great week as well.

Thanks for asking. We are really doing more of a Waldorf twist on LCC. It is really a lot of fun and we are making a lot of progress.

We are a lot happier now and have really found a nice comfort level.

Thanks for stopping by.
