I forgot to write a post last night because I was looking up library books! Oops.
But I do want to say this one thing: Project Comic Book worked! When I woke up yesterday morning, there was a dusting of snow on the ground, and Boy was cozy in his bed, reading his Scooby Doo comic collection. Papa’s work was delayed for the snow, so he didn’t leave until 7:30. But when he woke up at 6:30 or so he opened the shade on the window next to Boy’s bed so Boy could read and look out at the snow in the back yard. And that’s how I found him. By last night he’d read 2/3 of the book.
During the day yesterday Boy finished his math exercises from the day before, practiced violin, and then (voluntarily) finished a Magic Tree House book about heroes. Girl has expressed formal interest in learning her letters (and therefore reading) so yesterday we did copy worksheets for the letter A.
I’ve been reading to Boy about Inuksuit (Inuit stone piles, built for communication and remembrance) and we’ll start reading about Canada today, in preparation for out first day of Geography Club on Monday. I’m going to start collecting all the things I’ve said I would bring, for a ‘Geography Bag.’
Today: math, violin, letters, reading, the delivery of a new washer/dryer, board game day.
