Yes, another homeschooling blog...

P'once a little time there was a girl. This girl grew up to be a Mamma to three little girls all very much like herself. And this little Mamma knew she just had to have a place of her own to keep all things home school right at her fingertips.

Trimester Two

Our second 12 week trimester is already in full swing, but since we have not had any Internet for some months, I am just now playing catch up with my handwritten notes. Here is what we are working on this term: Reading: Beowulf, Seamus Haney translation. Mara is writing her own version of the epic poem as the story unfolds to recite as she were a court jester. She is also practicing music pieces for the poem and having great fun with it. Science: create a terrarium and record observations. Plants can be added when found. Later in the term we'll be tapping a maple tree and making maple syrup. Handiwork: learn the symbols of sewing patterns, make pillows or doll clothes. Writing: we will be continuing dictation pieces, cursive writing, copy work as well as opportunities for creative writing. Grammar: Spelling: Monday/ Friday Think Alongs: Tuesday-Thursday Memorization: catechism and poetry. Mathematics: continue in workbook. On schedule .
