Family Time

The last two days Papa was off from work, so we took some time off from school to spend with him. So to make up for our break we will  have school through Saturday this week. We celebrated Candlemas by having a short circle with just our morning verses, prayer ,and groundhog fingerplays.Then I read from Luke 2:21-39 and said this verse 

If Candlemas Day be fair and bright
Winter will have another fight.
If Candlemas Day brings cloud and rain,
Winter won’t come again.

Our day turned out to be neither bright or rainy so we could not decide if winter would soon be over. We said a blessing over the candles we had made over Christmas and The Little’s cut out their heart shape candle holders. I will post another picture once The Little’s have painted them. I wanted to paint a picture telling this cute little story I found but we ran out of time. http://gjwaldorf.blogspot.com/2008/02/watercolor-story-for-candlemas-and.html 

For today’s breakfast I made biscuits and gravy with scrambled eggs. After the biscuits were done I threw some baked potatoes in the oven to cook for our lunch later. When our morning clean up was finished I called The Little’s to circle and we stuck with the same line up from Monday’s post.

We continued working on lesson 11 with our penny whistle’s and on the 3 times tables for beanbag.

Today’s main lesson was all about the hour hand of the clock. Miss Sky and I reviewed Monday’s lesson how the day was split into 2 12 hour sections and talked about why there were not 24 numbers on the face of the clock. We talked about how the little hand is the hour hand and tells us what hour of the day it is. She copied down the first part of this verse I found from Millennial Child’s website in her MLB. http://knol.google.com/k/the-waldorf-curriculum-verses-for-the-primary-grades# scroll down to third grade’s Time Telling Verse. http://www.flickr.com/photos/24734949@N04/4330589153/

Today in grammar we talked about sentences again and how they end with a punctuation mark. I found some cute rhymes to help remember how to use them.http://www.waldorflibrary.org/clearing%20house/spring%201974a.pdf on page 7 and 8. I love the read-a-loud ideas for the grades these newsletters recommend as well. She copied the rhyme in her MLB ,then Miss Sky circled, underlined ,or boxed the nouns, verbs, and adjectives in the rhyme.

Miss Sky copied verse 18 of her memory verse this month in her MLB and practiced her cursive letters this week in cornmeal. She also practiced her name and other small words.

We finished the day with Miss Sky reading chapters 3 &4 of The Year of the Panda and I finished The Hundred Dresses while stitching more felt hearts for our valentine’s mobile.

Wishing everyone much peace and joy.
