Charlotte is 7 now......

Charlotte is now a brand new fresh 7 year old, so I thought I'd do a journal entry for where she is currently in her Math.

Rod and Staff Grade 3, lesson 98.


Doing Division.....
for her 6x tables on top, and a mixture on bottom.


Then we continue to do some more in fraction form, and of course a few written questions as well.


So yep, that is where Charlotte is up to these days.

Kk is for Koala.....

While we're currently taking a Robinson Curriculum detour for the older girls, little boy continues to preschool, with much enthusiasm.

Today he did a letter { k } alphabet craft.

What Charlotte is Reading These Days

Charlotte has just turned 7.

This is the level/ability and where she is in her reading:


She is almost finished with this book, which will bring us to the end of the Grade 1 course particularly soon, and well before the end of the year - so that we'll actually have a couple of months free.  We'll probably detour a little after that before jumping to the Grade 2 materials, but I dunno, we'll see what she thinks when we get there, and what she might want to do.

My Latest Korean Find: Moorim School

These days - now that I put fb in the bin again, seem to have a little bit of extra time on my hands.  Which brings me to what have I been doing then?  Well, I discovered a new little series to watch.  We don't keep regular tv at my house at all, but we've relaxed that rule to allow Netflix at times.

If you want a SAFE viewing:  then this would include this series.  You will not be subjected to any foul language, inappropriate nudity, or any of the usual perversion found in western civilisation.  In fact, you will probably be so surprised by the lack of it, that you will never want to watch anything that comes out of America again.  You will come with me to Korea.  Subtitles are available for those of us that don't speak Korean.

ps.  don't send me emails saying how short sighted I am.  I fully realise that they have been on speed light travel to the same debauchery as America, but they managed to keep it out of this particular series - which made it an immensely enjoyable viewing.

They have a very different type of viewing.

My latest amazing little find has been:

{ Moorim School: Saga of the Brave }

I found it on Netflix.

Now, while it's like watching a really modest young love romance the basic story line will keep  you to the end.

Here is a trailer for it:


You should definitely read about here it here: wikipediaMoorim_School:_Saga_of_the_Brave

and another more interesting trailer here:




There is a little down side:  you'll be exposed to modesty, hard work ethic, and of course martial arts.  And I really, really, really loved that the students had to cook, clean, and look after themselves.  ha ha ha, oh my dream come true.  Can't wait for my students to take on that vision.  These students are basically university level, do I really have to wait that long?

But if you don't mind a little of that, you should be extremely happy to binge your way through.

Keep the tissues available.  You'll need them at some point.

Best Interview Fun and Hwarang Sneak Peaks

Today I found an interview with the main boy cast members, with plenty of show and tell from the series Hwarang.  

It explains a LOT of bits and pieces from the story.

And just a curious little note:

At 16.58 introduction to the dance scene.

At 17.53 we discover that Minho choreographed the dance, with a little help from Tae, I think?

Then at 18.30 we see Park HyungSik, Min-ho, and Kim Taehyung show us the dance moves.

I mention this because what is most interesting is that these 3 all come from boy bands.  HyungSik from ZE:A { pronounced GEA as there is no Z sound in Korean }.  Min-ho from Shinee, and Kim Taehyung as V from BTS.
