She fell on her butt and was mad.
Stuffed all of the leaves in her purse, which I am sure will be fun to clean out after.
We knew it was cold out, but it was a lot windier and colder than we thought, so after my husband came home from work we went to the mall to get Roo a new winter coat. I am doing my happy dance that we finally got an H&M, which opened yesterday. Now we don't have to travel for 45 minutes to get to the nearest one. We found her this cute hooded parka for 30% off.
School this week was shaved down to the basics. Monday was Thanksgiving so we didn't do school, the rest of the week we worked on phonics, memory work, spelling, math facts and a little french.
Memory Work - Vertebrates and Seven Continents and location on a map, done. We are still working on the Egyptian Ennead (7 memorized), Invertebrates, the oceans and the FLL poem "Work".
Phonics- we are on lesson 187 in The Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading. Her reading is getting more fluent and she only is sounding out 1 in approximately every 10 words.
Spelling - For spelling we are trying something new. We retired Spelling Workout for a bit and are now using the Ordinary Parents Guide for spelling as well. I want AAS, but can't afford it right now so we will see how this works in the interim. I went back to the beginning of the book and instead of using the rules as phonics rules, we are applying them towards spelling. The beginning short vowels with cvc words are easy, but we are going through them just to ensure understanding.
Math - We focused on learning our math facts to 10 this week, She knows her plus zeros, plus ones, and double facts. We have started the plus two's and will continue next week. We are not moving on to the next section in Singapore Math until the facts are known.
French - Counting to 12 is completed and now we are working on the weather terms.
Next week we will be back to normal.
On a side note. I don't know if I am nesting or if I am panicking but I really am determined to get the apartment ready for the baby. I made my husband dig out all the old baby clothes out of the storage room (he really didn't want to) so I could go through them all and separate them into sizes and gender neutrality. I now need to clean them all and get everything settled and put away. Currently they are all spread out in the living room on the open futon that Roo decided to set up and move into the middle of the room. The mess of it is pretty horrifying. On a positive note it has allowed me to purge some of our stuff again. I purged before we moved in the summer and now that I have had a chance to go through some of these clothes a second time, I have gotten rid of more. Does one really need 30 spit up blankets? Maybe, but hopefully not.
Does a baby really need this many clothes?
