After spending the day with friends yesterday, today our time was spent doing-
*Math games from the “Mega-Fun Math Games and Puzzles for the Elementary Grades” and some math exercises from the Hungarian Mathematics and Enhancement Programme.
*Art and literature (this weekend we will be working on Frida inspired portraits).
*Reading- Fauna is inhaling the Harry Potter series right now; Araina is reading and loving poetry of all kinds- she keeps a book of Robert Louis Stevenson under her pillow to read before she falls asleep and reading it is the first thing she does in the morning.
*Writing in reading journals- both little ladies keep a journal where they record the books they read with a brief synopsis of each book.
*Geography- we are learning about Beatrix Potter, reading her wonderful stories, learning and locating where she is was from. Reading some biographies about her has lead us to learn about cryptography, using a cipher wheel , and writing in code. Very cool woman that Beatrix Potter was!
*Listening to books on CD- Rudyard Kipling stories seem to be the favorite right now.
*And there is ALWAYS time to create (latch hook today), dance, and play!
Enjoy your weekend!
