Homeschool This Week

Block for the Week: Form Drawing!

Verse: Winter Spring Summer Autumn, A Child's Seasonal Treasury, Pg 3
Spanish: Las Hojas se caeran (Autumn Leaves are falling down, sung to London Bridges) Bilingual Book , Pg 106
Yoga Position: Adventure, Angel Bear Yoga Pg 49
Music: Summer Goodbye, Sing a Song of Seasons Pg 28
Handwork: Yarn Angel, EarthSchooling September Pg 64
(I've made plans for all of these for every week. I recognize the fact that the Spanish and the Music might take more than one week to be learned and might be repeated.)

Monday:
    Ike: Week 1, Part 1 of Wise Sophia (Journey through Waldorf, Pg 78), curved form (draw on chalkboard, in rice, on our backs, in the air, walk in the driveway, dominant and off hands) (curve left, curve right, curve up, curve down, nesting curves, ascending and descending curves) Talk about the curve of the old woman's back, who lives in the curved house, with the curvy path, and the curvy backed cat.
    E & G: Sheep and Pig, EarthSchooling September Pg 34
Gym Day for everyone
Baking Day! We will bake wheat bread (more forms!) and brownies for dessert night, and possibly some GF bread for me

Tuesday:
    Ike: Week 1, Part 2 of Wise Sophia (Journey through Waldorf, Pg 78), straight form (draw on chalkboard, in rice, on our backs, in the air, walk in the driveway, dominant and off hands) (shorts, longs, ascending, descending, verticals, horizontals, interspersed, diagonals) 
    E & G: I'll pick a picture book
Painting Day: Back to one color painting. Yellow
TKD day for Ike (If he wants to go)

Wednesday:
    Ike: Week 1,Part 3 of Wise Sophia (Journey through Waldorf, Pg 78) wavy running form (draw on chalkboard, in rice, on our backs, in the air, walk in the driveway, dominant and off hands) (horizontals and verticals
   E & G: Sheep and Pig, EarthSchooling September Pg 34
Modeling Day: the forms
Gym Day for everyone
TKD day for E & G

Thursday:
    Ike: Draw a picture of the family in Wise Sophia, narrate and summarize the story so far. Form draw review of curves and straights combined.
    E & G: Same Picture book as on tuesday
Copywork Day: Verse of the Week

Friday:
Mom's day off. KidsPark in the Morning, park for the afternoon with a trip to the library in between. (Eventually Ike will be going to school at Njeri's Morning Glory on Fridays. On Forest Friday's they spend the entire day, rain or shine, at Sanborn park. Needless to say I've spent a chunk of change on rain gear for Ike. This satisfies my desire for him to be in a structured, class-like setting that is still outside and satisifies his counselor to fulfill his need for socialization and practice his social skills. This class starts the friday after Labor Day.)

Whew! Sounds busy!
