Coniferous Leaves

Standard

Had a really good morning schooling today! Lady P got down to business in anticipation of her friend coming round for a play date. 

She completed her reading lesson; practiced her counting by  5s and 10s; counted backwards from 10 confidently and started to count backwards from 20; sorted coins with their number amounts; wrote some more of her story; compared coniferous leaves to deciduous leaves and made notes.  Cheeky girl practiced counting objects and writing the number down and she practiced the letter c and d and made pictures of things starting with those letters. 

Afterwards, friends came to play all afternoon! It was a good day!

Autumn Is Here

Standard

I am creating an Autumn unit in my head, and doing activities with my girls focussing on the Fall season. (I say, in my head, because I am so disorganised and can’t seem to follow a routine). 

My two youngest were sick at home with daddy while Lady P and I went for a stroll.  We picked up leaves and brought them home.  I drew an outline of a hedgehog on their paper and Lady P cut hers out while I helped Cheeky Girl.  Then they glued down leaves for the hedgehog prickles.  The result was lovely!  The fall leaves are bright and beautiful.

  Lady P wrote the word hedgehog on her paper and Cheeky Girl made marks, trying to write hedgehog.  This activity took about 10 minutes.  Tomorrow they will colour the face.

Daddy Homeschool

Standard

Today I had to work so hubby homeschooled Lady P. I have 1 more day until I finish for maternity leave and I’m so tired I can see through time! Needless to say, it’s all about survival these days (and trying not to lose my rag). Being pregnant and having a toddler and preschool age child is extremely tiring but I’m not complaining (or trying not to 😉 and WHY are girls so loud? Can anyone tell me? Maybe it’s just my kids because they got my loud gene (I seem to remember my mum telling me to be quiet a lot ha). Read the rest of this entry

DIY Montessori Constructive Triangles

Standard

I’m finally feeling super motivated to get all my Montessori projects finished for Lady P. It is probably because I am pregnant and rather than clean my house, my nesting is causing me to finish tasks. Works for me! Read the rest of this entry
