Week 22 ~ A Week With The Annes

On Monday Elianna & I went to a local-ish home ed meet for older children. Rose stayed with her Granny & Grandad, whilst us ‘big girls’ went off for the day.


More model molecule making for Elianna this week, plus she is making her own Periodic Table.

Rose has been busy as always. Her bean experiment is rocking, & all the plants she is growing are shooting up! She definitely has green fingers!




We have been reading The Childhood of Hiawatha from The Song Of Hiawatha & Rose has begun a watercolour of the forest & Hiawatha’s home…hopefully more on that next week. Still going strong with our Greek Myths, we have also been reading Grimm’s Fairy Tales this week.

Elianna is really enjoying Anne Frank: The Diary Of A Young Girl. She would happily spend all day reading it if she could! I have begun reading Anne Of Green Gables aloud to her, as I had really wanted to reread this myself, & it wasn’t happening, so I am reading it to her. Love!

Elianna has begun a new art project – a sketchbook into which she is gathering ideas for work on ‘Mythical Creatures’ I am hopeful that this will produce lots of lovely creativity, effort & development.


Plus all the usuals – Maths & English for both girls, Latin for Elianna, Latin & Greek roots for Rose.

Some of the books we have been reading this week:

D’Aulaire’s book of Greek Myths

Grimm’s Fairy Tales

A Little Garden Calendar For Boys & Girls

The Way Science Works

Who is Jane Goodall


The Children Of Odin

The Annotated Anne Of Green Gables

Anne Frank: The Diary Of A Young Girl

Gazzilions of the Usborne Beginners read by Rose…

I am finding these ‘teacher guides’ helpful:

Happy Weekend!
