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)
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…
Some of the books we have been reading this week:
I am finding these ‘teacher guides’ helpful:
