Ahhhhhh...Friday always feels fabulous. Regardless of the fact that there's much to do on the weekends, the vibe is slightly different and definitely more relaxed. It's a lovely feeling. Our day started out like most, with my sunrise walks.
|math time! Ty worked on time telling and double digit addition while Kendall worked on her multiplication tables and geometry|
|free thought journaling|
|So fun, simple and amazing results!|
|snuggled down with Katie for some reading time|
|snuggled down in the teepee - reading Charlie and The Chocolate Factory|
|he tried to escape to the teepee in lieu of tubbytime!|
And thus our week (and a half) unit on fairies drew to a close. We ended the study with a reading of an Usborne abridged version of A Midsummer Night's Dream from the Young Reading Series 2. We talked about William Shakespeare, when he lived and what other influential pieces of literature he wrote. The kids were fascinated by the vintage of the story. They thought it was amazing that it was 400+ years old. They tried hard to find the humor in this comedic piece, as it's very confusing, and eventually with all of it's twists and turns and mix-ups were giggling at the ridiculousness of it.
