Mummy's blackboard - girls said it looked like two cavemen!
Hettie's - she refused to colour all the background
Its fairly tricky having two at home - many congratulations to everyone home edding more than two!! It was quite apparent that 3rd Grade Waldorf is not really suitable for 1st Grade. So a learning curve for me, but as I say no planning ready for two. I may have to put some thought into this. We read Cain & Abel again, because Hettie insisted I read it to Isobel, even though she thinks it's rubbish! Me thinks that might have been a sneaky way to hear the story again. Then we read Noah building the Ark ready for tomorrow.
We followed on with some work on nouns and named & copied animals we thought might be on Noah's Ark. Then I decided we could try some beeswax modelling. I tried my very best to think Waldorf! So I asked if Noah built his Ark in our garden what animals would be first on board and then we modelled. Wow, how nice is beeswax modelling. We added our models to our nature table - it's all coming together!
I found a rhythm today, lunch was at lunchtime and then we popped to the shops so I could get some wool for my latest knitting project. We followed up with some maths work on place value and I discovered Isobel might know how to put things in tens and units but had no idea that 100 was more than 1. Quite good for Hettie to have a bit of competition and she used her bead frame and rainbow tray to count gems effortlessly up to hundreds - just how many gems have I bought!
That was about it. As for the rain I insisted Hettie walked the dog with dh and we probably had more rain than I've seen in years. They were soaked to their pants and had to strip off in the hall. Obviously Hettie had something to say about it all.
And finally head lice. They like my hair, the girls have none and are not itching at all. Obviously I have lent too close to some small child with them. So out with the comb once more!
