I hope everyone had a very happy mother’s day!
May signifies a very busy month for our family. There are 2 birthdays, mothers day, and getting the garden planted. Then there is Memorial day, and an Indy 500 race. This usually leads to me feeling very overwhelmed. Yesterday however I took advantage of being pampered while helping mother nature welcome spring. I always feel at rest surrounded by her beauty.It seems like just yesterday all the streams still contained ice and the plants had yet began to grow.(Do you see what I see ?)
It was just the calm my spirit needed.
Today though it was business as usual and for Little Sis this means a new story. She has a tendency to speed through everything. You give her a workbook and she could easily finish the whole thing in an hour. I am hoping working with a three-day rhythm might slow her down a bit.
So today I read the story of Hansel and Grettel by the brothers Grimm.
I am using this story as part of Miss Sky’s lessons as well. Besides Grammar-land we will be talking about fairy tales and who exactly those Grimm brothers were. First though it was math Monday.
Today I made some problems for Miss Sky to practice using carrying and borrowing while Little Sis practiced writing her numbers 1-20. Then we started circle,using the same fingerplays and songs from last week.
After reading our story I gave Miss Sky her spelling words to copy.
After she was done we listened to the next chapter of grammar-land and being that it reviewed noun, article, and pronoun I printed off the exercise for Miss Sky to do before moving on.
Then we listened to the chapter about Mr. Adjective.
For Reading today Little Sis read books 16 & 17 of I See Sam. She is doing much better sounding out will and with. Miss Sky is reading Happy Birthday Kit independently, and I finished Beezes and Ramona.
Wishing everyone a happy Monday!
