C is for Calendar and Colors

Bit  of a laid back day today - long diabetes night! Guess this was a good day for it since Scout's voice lessons got switched to today. That means park time for the others and a dent out of the middle of our school day which was ok by me today. But we did get in some good school before all of that. We started with our calendar notebooks which went quick and smooth. The kids like knowing what to do on their own and what comes next.

Then they all went on with their individual work. Flossie worked on colors and shapes. Freddie started some new sight words. The big kids did free reading until it was time for their live  History and Science lectures.

Afterward Jem read Brown Bear, Brown Bear to the kids to go over color words. They have been learning to read color words as sight words in their calendar notebooks and in a few worksheets too, so he thought the book would be a good idea. He of course then ended up reading Polar Bear, Polar Bear and Panda Bear, Panda Bear too.

After this it was pretty much rush, rush, voice, park, home, play play, play, and me read and chill - or try to with 4 wild animals and 2 little dogs running madcap around the house!
