I can tell that the season is making me really lazy. We only did preschool one day this week. It's very possible that next weeks lessons will be replaced with snowy, wintery, Christmas fun and service projects.
Here's what we did this week:
We read The Tomten and the Fox. It was not my favorite, but the illustrations are super. After that, Elise practiced writing the letter M. When we were done with that, we got on to the really fun stuff! We went outside and gathered a cup of snow (full to the rim). While the snow was melting, Elise practiced cutting. When she was done, the snow was melted, and we got to see how little water there is, in fact, in a cup of snow. It was pretty cool to observe.
That's it! See how lazy I've been??
Here's what else we did this week:
The girls had skating lessons on Tuesday, and got to spend day with Grandma, Anna, and Kinsey, who were in town. Thursday, Elise was supposed to be in the Ballet Minnesota production of The Nutcracker, but she chickened out at the last minute. She was already in costume and everything! She was deathly afraid of the "rats". So, we watched from the audience instead. It was a fantastic production. Next year I want to do a week long unit study about it. Friday, cousins Ben and Patrick came over and swam for a bit.
And, just because Elise likes to challenge me, today she stated that her favorite subject is Physics. Guess what my LEAST favorite subject is! Oh boy.
