Science this Week for Charlotte

This weeks Science for Charlotte...


It's an Interactive Notebook page.


The lesson plan DOES include instructions for completing a left hand page as well, but I feel that just doing the interactive page is enough at the moment.

Combining Bible and Copywork

The thought here is that I decided that we should combine Bible and Copywork in the one lesson.

Basically, I've taken a photocopy master with a picture and a story with which Charlotte reads the story out loud to me and narrates a sentence or so between each paragraph.  I write it down, and then at the end she can copy it out into her book.  She uses the picture on the left hand side to trace, thus producing these examples. 



She is really enjoying this activity, so we'll continue daily until she tires and then I'll probably make it a weekly thing and move her into the Golden Children's Bible on the other days.

Adding Ambleside for Charlotte

This week I started Charlotte with Ambleside Readings for Year One.

I scheduled out a full 12 weeks to give it a fair go.


I also printed out a few books that were on the Year 1 list..


Charlotte is LOVING this book.  It is perfect for her!


This particular History of the Church is Catholic... but I'm not Catholic, but I thought that I would try it out since I would like the children to have some Church History.  I am hoping that it will still lend itself to quite a bit of usefulness.

It's always exciting to see the littles doing their beginning writing.

Noah even gave himself some ticks for his own good work.

Christian Liberty Nature Readers

It only took me about 6 hours to locate these particular books in amongst the bookshelves today.  I started looking at about 6 am and then, when it occurred to me to continue looking, looking I did.


Page one of the contents, but it has 154 pages in its entirety.


I love the simplicity of the text and layout, nothing taxing or distracting.



I love that it also includes a review of each section.



I highly recommend this set of books if you can get them!
