We begin each month by setting goals and reflecting on the year so far. It's a simple habit that helps to add purpose to our days and focus to our weeks! Our word for the year is Thrive.
One of our big goals last month was adopting a two-week block schedule which we're enjoying so far, alternating new lessons in Language Arts and Math/Form Drawing. The best part so far has been breaking up math drills & writing for Isia's second grade, which are not her favorite activities. Even though writing is included in her math, such as writing down shape names today, it gives her a break from longer writing sessions and handwriting. I'm excited to see what latency gifts we'll receive as we move ahead with it too.
Here are our goals for the month:
- Begin working on our community garden plot
- Complete our hibernation unit for science, and move onto animal tracks
- Memorization work: "A Sun Like Thee" by Eileen Hutchins, Psalm 100
- Recorder/ handwork
- Our weeklyish newsletter
- Waldorf chalk drawing post on our weekly boards
- Complete two sewing projects
- Finish reading: Disciple: The Glad Surrender by Elisabeth Elliot
- Mending: Hem closet curtain downstairs, Isia's doll
- Organizing craft supplies & basement closet
- Knitting: Finish Isia's cardigan
- All photos off USB & computer onto Shutterfly
- Adopt a two-week rhythm, alternating Language Arts & Math/Form drawing
- Blog series: Homeschool Art Lessons in Printmaking
- Mending: Broken kitchen shelf, curtain rods
- Marie Kondo photos off iPhone onto Shutterfly
