{ Week 12 }

Another week down!

So, let's end with a FREEBIE!!

Just click the picture to download.

Earlier this week I had to completely WIPE my computer clean and start again.

I don't think it fixed my problems though.


Never mind, so long as I can still blog and work on my store in between times.

This week little Miss Charlotte worked hard on her writing.

And counting.

And that pretty much sums up my photo taking for the week.

The girls took some, but yeah, not really shareable.

I'll see how I feel in the morning, I might be able to ruffle up something else to share.

Update on 'Writing with Skill'.

Today we finished week 6.  So far, so good.  It's actually going very well.  Today we finished up with a narrative called "The Sinking of the Titanic".  Chloe even put some "dialogue" in there too, as per the lesson instructions.  Can you believe it?  There is even a word count allowance.  The piece had to be between 150-300 words, which made it less daunting considering the extensive outline that was provided.  It also gave her room "to choose" which part to write about without having to worry about trying to "get it all in".  

I think the work is quite challenging for Chloe, as she does lack a bit of confidence and skill in this area but at the same time I feel it is a good fit for grade 5 level.  I can't wait for next weeks lessons.

It's going so well in fact that I am actually off to check out Susan's other writing books for perusal { I might pick one up for the younger girls. }

Today I'll be linking up with:

Weekly Wrap-Up

I hope you will join us.

Thanks for visiting.
