Madison continues to work independently. She is doing well with all her subjects, with American Literature being her favorite. She read and studied Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven" this month. She was given an assignment to write three page prequel, and when she was done, it ended up being almost six pages. It was incredible!
Peyton continues to work hard. She is usually done with her weekly work on Thursday. She either works ahead, or helps me with Flynn's work. Peyton's favorite subject so far is American Nation. She is studying about the Puritans and is finding it fascinating. She also composed a short piece of music for her music class, and the teacher liked it so much she asked if she could share it during the virtual class chat. This was funny because Peyton really has the least interest in music of all my kids! : )
Rhett is working well. He is the
Flynn continues to be eager and precious. We continued our letter recognition this month, along with some basic math skills and are beginning shapes. She is doing well, and is slowly making progress in her small motor skill area. We are also VERY fond of the color pink, and seem to color everything that shade. She also completed a lesson on leaves, which is perfect this time of year! : )
Things I'm loving...
- Knowing exactly what my children are studying
- Getting to know my children in a school environment
- Preparing and sharing daily snacks like fresh fruit and crackers
- Having all four children participate in story time : )
- Remembering why I disliked higher level math so much
- Feeling inadequate when more than one of my children needs me at the same time
Here's what we have been up to this month in our classroom!
We decorated Flynn's Preschool corner with leaves and Halloween fun.
My Preschool student...
learning to cut. : )
We painted fall leaves...
with the help of big sisters...
They turned out great!
Rhett had a super easy science project involving only water and paper towels. It was demonstrating how plants can conserve water. My kind of project!
We were fascinated with the disappearing purple glue while making...
a Pinterest inspired Halloween craft.
We painted pumpkins...and turned them into jack-o-lanterns using the shapes we were learning...
and added them to our festive wall. : )
Favorite snacks this month...Halloween s'mores...
and apple slices with caramel, peanut butter, and mini chocolate chips.
And there is October in our little schoolroom. Thanks for sharing our journey with us! : )
