Monday, part 1

We were down one child today, as my teen was out of town at a concert. It was still very much a Monday, though. Here is our day in pictures. I’ll be writing a follow up post, that’s more reflective.

Copy and verse memorizing work.

Fourth grader knitting. He’s making a sweater for his little brother.

Painting from a Norse story with my fourth grader. He wanted to use paper that would fit in his main lesson book.

Painting with my first grader. I accidentally grabbed the wrong red and we leaned first hand why we need the circle colors. 😂 Carmine red doesn’t quite mix the same way with yellow. You can see my prop painting above, with a lovely golden color for the goose. But we made it work.

I had to snap a picture of my toddler. He always wants to paint with us, but what a mess still! This photo was after he’d dumped the tiny bit of rinse water I’d given him. But the pleasure is in the process and I know it’s good for him to experience painting.

Rainy Wednesday

Some pictures from today and yesterday. The rain has come, thankfully! I love this time of year.

The tenth grader’s work for the week. He’s working at his own pace, which he seems to really like. He is feels more in charge of his time this way. He only comes to me for help with his math, as needed.

The first grader was writing a summary today. (I erased the first pay to help her keep track of where she was in copying it down into her main lesson book).

The fourth grader and I had another painting lesson to go along with the story of Sif’s golden hair. Mine is on the left, his is on the right.

His summary from yesterday combined with a grammar lesson (underlining).

He’s also learning cross-stitch, making a beanbag.

Some wall signs I’ve made this week:
