A little late this week as we had a big weekend playing with friends, but here’s what we’ve been up to…
We started the week playing with friends. There was soccer…
…and little kids learning from big kids.
We took a trip to the library finally and signed up for some library cards.
Writing practice this week was in the form of a thank you letter. I love how academics fits so naturally into life. Miss 5 is keen to work out how to form all the letters perfectly and ‘write like an adult’. We also talked about the structure of a letter, when to use capital letters, full stops, commas, and sentences.
The girls also did a painting each to go with the letter. Miss 5 did a baby turtle on the sand.
Miss 3 also did a baby turtle on the sand but also included the water with the shell of a mother turtle poking out, just like we had seen at Mon Repos when walking along the beach.
If you follow me over on instagram you would have seen these little jars! I scored them in a discount shop and they work great for our paints! Especially with the little handle perfect for holding onto. Discount shops are really awesome for finding art supplies, especially the kitchen aisle.
Miss 5 was keen to keep painting and called me over to see this ‘experiment’ she was doing. She had covered the paper in yellow watercolour paint and then was dabbing red paint on top and watching it spread. The result was beautiful and looked like a field of flowers.
We ended the week with more fun with friends. The kids all loved swimming together in the pool and it’s amazing to see the younger kids learning from the older ones.
Some creating together with Spielgaben. They had a newer kit with some pieces we don’t have and as predicted Miss 5 loved them so I’m very excited for our upgrade kit to arrive soon!
That’s all from us this week! Lots more happened but sometimes you’re just too busy and involved to take photos of it all.
