We worked on the Hooked on Phonics system for about 20 minutes today. Worked on combination sounds focusing on ch and th, then Mara read aloud book 16.
She practiced reciting the poem on Cassiopeia she has ready for Friday's class:
The best constellation I've ever seen
is shaped like a throne that is meant for a queen.
Cassiopeia's 5 stars are very high
in the month of November, in the Northern sky.
We read aloud d'Aulaires Pocahontas and began Little House on the Prairie. We were able to add Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, and Missouri to our map of the United States.
