Let Us Go And Build A Great City

After  finally getting caught up from my day of no self-discipline over the weekend I was glad to have a fresh start to the week. It amazes me how I sleep in one day , and it throws the rest of the week off. Seems like something kept getting left till the following day and I ran out of time, which is something I seem to have less and less of. So after reminding myself of what happened last week I got up and had a great yoga and meditation session. In relation to the inner work series from A Little Garden Flower.com I came across the a link to the calendar of the soul http://www.calendarofthesoul.net/. What a great way to start or end the  day letting your spirit ponder it’s meaning. I started the waffles and bacon for breakfast while The Little’s worked on their chores. I also prepared the chicken broth that would later be made into Italian chicken soup for lunch. After morning clean up we started circle time keeping the same seasonal songs , verses , and finger-plays for the month. We continued with lesson 3 on the penny whistle(mama’s having a hard time playing her songs ). We practiced problems from all 4 math processes during beanbag. Todays main lesson story was The Tower of Babel. I had a really hard time finding a story I liked so I told the story straight from the King James Bible adding my own imagery details. I gave Miss Sky her spelling list for the week:
















We clapped out each letter and she wrote them twice in her MLB. Grammar this week we are working on singular and plural nouns. We are breaking this lesson up adding a new rule on making nouns plural each day. Today we worked on just adding (s). I am tying Miss Sky’s form into the part of the story that tells when they built a great tower to the heavens with a wall to surround it to keep enemies out. We finished up our main lesson with beeswax modeling our best try of the tower http://www.flickr.com/photos/24734949@N04/4005662411/. I think it looks more like The Princess and the Pea. We broke for our hour lunch. I finished up The Legend of Sleepy Hollow for story-time and Miss Sky Read Nate the Great by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat.

Wishing everyone a happy Monday.
