Wow, has January and half of February already passed??? And how long it has been since I posted any of our doings here, mea culpa dear followers, you are so faithful and sorry if I have disappointed you in keeping our learning to ourselves for so long.
After the move and getting settled in sort of put the kabosh on extra blogging, but my goal for this space in 2009 will be bi-monthly updates, more if I can manage 🙂
We've had our share of "new place" related illnesses, catching all the new germs in our new and wetter climate, it's a bummer, but so far nothing terrible, thankfully.
Anyhoo, on to some notes ~
- I've been keeping track of Violet's voracious reading habit at her Reading Page. Trying to keep one for Matthias too, and am in the process of making one for the read-alouds for Seamus.
- Seamus is a whiz at Math, and am keeping him stocked with lots of worksheets from Math Mammoth that he does using all of our Montessori Math Materials. He likes the Learning Page worksheets too, but isn't so interested in coloring in the sheets anymore, he just wants to get to the math and do it!!
- Sean-Paul is finally starting to "get' behaving in the schoolroom. He will actually occupy himself for snippets of time, sometimes up to 15-20 minutes which is big for him, but ultimately he really just wants to be outside…a Naturalist in the making methinks 🙂
- We are really enjoying daily poetry readings from the Classic Poetry Aloud site. Lissa linked this eons ago and we have been enjoying it ever since 🙂 Thanks Liss!
Well, that's all I can muster for a round-up, there's so much more, but life takes over!!
Thanks for stopping by if you're reading at all 🙂
