History – Play “pass the crown” with our homemade lace crowns, as each one of us says one word of the history sentence until we have it memorized.
Latin – Match the Latin endings using two copies of the Latin pronounciation helps. All the while, we’ll be reciting the endings.
English – Recite the memory work together. I’ll write a sentence on our chalkboard with repetitive nouns first and then erase the repetitive nouns to replace with pronouns. For example, Mommy got out Mommy’s keys and started Mommy’s car. If they’re interested, I’ll give them a chance to verbally make their own sentences.
Math – Using a dry erase marker, they’ll each mark the 3s and then the 4s on a hundred number chart. For this, we’ll use our dry erase pockets.
Science – Read our Creation Science curriculum. Sort plastic animals into the types of consumers.
Geography – We’ll mark our maps with chocolate chips and practice continent blobbing. The map you see in this picture is one side of a double sided laminated map that another mom on campus offered to print & laminate for interested families. The files are the Europe Unlabeled Color Enhanced.jpg and
Fine Arts – Complete one of these insect symmetry coloring page.
On my weekly posts, you’ll definitely see some repeat ideas. I won’t often be super creative or inventive (sigh, as much fun as that would be!), but rather I’ll be focusing on simple, effective methods to memorize the memory work. In a few years, our goal is to exit the grammar stage with these foundational pegs firmly in place. To see more of how we’re approaching each subject classically, check out my series of posts, At Home with the Classical Method.
