The second week we did everything so early in the week so we could leave on our weekend trip but I must have somehow accidentally given her the impression that Kindergarten was over FOREVER! After I cleared up the confusion and dried the tears, she was alright - and I was reassured that it wasn't too much work for her!
We did a bit of math.
Some picture study - which immediately led to her wanting to make her own still life arrangement.
She arranged some peaches from our garden around a snow globe she made at vbs. It ended up looking a bit like a penguin crime scene but it was super cute to see her excited about it.
Actual art time - our first attempt at using watercolor crayons. They are a lot of fun and much easier that full watercolors with Jonah around.
A good bible verse to start off the new year, don't you think? (and slightly less pointed than our previous verse "Do everything without complaining or arguing...")
I wasn't going to have her start copywork but I added the book to my rainbow resource order to get up to free shipping so I thought I'd see how she did. She loved it! She did the first page and to appease her after saying she couldn't do another, I went to grab her crayons so she could color the igloo. When I got back, she showed me how she made the first line look "so fancy." Not sure how to proceed with that but at least I think she's going to like cursive when we get there.
And lots of music with some picture books tagging along.
We had lots of fun and the routine is working well. My biggest concern was making sure school didn't interfere with time spent outside. But we got outside just over 30 hours in those two weeks. Not quite 4-6 hours a day, but slightly over 2 on average, which is pretty good considering its July and has been either hot or rainy every day.
Of course, much of that was in the water because it is summer after all and what's summer without some sprinkler fun?
