Week 18 ~ Snow Days

1

This week has been a little…interrupted…

We have had two visits to the dentist (a family visit & a second visit to evaluate my big girl for braces. On top of that Elianna & I have both felt very low on energy, we have had a couple of days-wonderfully-interrupted-by-snow, plus I have been preparing for a trip away this weekend.

We have pootled along, at a slower pace.

Elianna & I have been making models of atoms & elements. Sarah’s post was really helpful. Elianna has made several of them now & I am forever standing on teeny-tiny beads….

Rose has a new sticker book, all about traditional costumes

And she is loving this book about Jane Goodall.

She finished her illustration of Charlotte’s Web, which she is very pleased with & I am loving that wee spider 🙂

We have done a little work in the girls English books, & they have done their maths lessons each day.

I realise I haven’t talked much about the ‘everyday’ resources we use – Eliana is working from the decimals book by Math Mammoth, and I use this vintage text with Rose: Graded Work In Arithmetic Year One (I have a printed book, but I recently found this PDF online)

I also use vintage texts for English – Primary Language Lessons & Intermediate Language Lessons.

Elianna uses dictation for spelling – we use the Simply Charlotte Mason Spelling book 2, & for Rose I use The Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading as a spelling book.

Elianna has finished researching Medieval Explorers this week, so next week I am hoping to start her on this course: Archaeology of Portus.

It also has to be said, this is the week Rose discovered that she can fit into the wee cupboard in our hall…
