We’ve been working on all sorts of subjects since my last post. We have been working a lot at the chalkboard with Dubard work evolving our sounds and words into their full sentence structure and continuing with naming their grammar parts. The girls have been choosing to do more math at their desks as opposed to the big table in the kitchen where they can spread out their work more easily but with added tables it makes it possible next to their desks too.
We finished up the Montessori Pink series language which was far easier than the work the girls are used to reading now but it was good practice in between reading out loud their reader sets. The pink boxes were based on sentences and matching the appropriate pictures.
The girls have been choosing to work more often in their workbooks choosing between 4-5 of their favorite ones that combine all subjects together. Some of the topics covered:
- Math with abacus work
- Sentence structure: the subject part and the action part.
- Finding the main idea.
- Problem solving
- Word problems in math
- Tens and ones and grouping
- number and number names.
- Dot to dots counting by 2s, 5s, 10s.
- Shapes and measurements
- Geometry solids.
- Learning about light
- Introduction to the moon and it’s lunar cycle.
