Swimming 10:00 - 10:45am. Mara enjoyed swimming this week much more than last. She did a great job learning to float on her back, putting her face in the water while swimming, and swimming the length of the pool with a noodle. Great Job! I know a little girl who will rest well tonight!
50 Famous Stories: Heratio at the Bridge: Mara's response: "Why did the they shoot him in the eye?"
Blue Fairy Book: Why the sea is salt.
Mathematics: I believe we've finished up with the Geometry lesson. We did a quick review and then moved into algebra... which is really just building onto her existing concepts of greater than and less than, least, greatest and equal. She also practiced writing numbers 0-3.
Instead of games, today was a beautiful day and Mara went outside to play. We opened the windows!
Begin: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang by Ian Fleming
Buffalo Bill: Ingri D'Aulaire
Write poetry: Mara got the idea from her new Fancy Nancy books from Yem and wants to try writing her own poetry this week. (She has already devoured both books and loves them!)
I need to bring in a craft for the kids to do at Home School Co-op this week.... blerg.
