Well here we are again then! Back to home educating! ARGH! And another big ARGH! It was the day from hell. I sat in front of my screen last night trying to work out where to begin with no work from school yet but it's important to establish a routine from day 1. I decided it was best to drag out my old folder and file what we no longer need, bin the trash, and give away what others can use, and find out what can still be used. So I have a pile of year 3 despite J in year 4 and the EYFS stuff Sophie has well finished with so i've handed to our neighbour for her little man to use.
Any way after an hour I conceded that I was beat and I had to release her to internet land. I came to an agreement she could leave 1 Maths sheet so longs she completed her spellings before going.
Sophie however was a dream and finished all her work easy and kept asking for more - I suspect the novelty will wear off soon. There was moments of I hate mummy school enrolled in there too at times though!
Right here are some pictures of the day.
Sophie ended the day by making herself a fairy wand from a stick, pipe cleaner, glitter stickers and some blue tack on the top!
Right that's it! Tomorrow I have much more planned but as I am snowed under I'll just give a quick summery. English sheets for both, Maths, Spellings and Key Words. I am also going to tie in some school work for Jess as they have sent home a 9-3 timetable! Yea ain't following that as I couldn't get her to do 1 hour never mind 6 - Ha! Will just pick and mix stuff out of it. She has to read her school book and upscale some words using a thesaurus (I so think of dinosaur when I hear this word!) and a maths puzzle of fitting the numbers 1-9 (I think it was) into circles without the same sequenced numbers matching. So no 2 next to 1 and 3. It could go 357 or something. And I've forgotten what else I put down now! Need to get her on the computer too. ARGH. Just need to settle back into a routine! Sleep well all! Will try and update again tomorrow! Love - The Mad House!X
