This is long overdue; I promised to open this meme ages ago – but life gets in the way.
Every year home educators with blogs do a meme where the tell a ‘not very typical because what days are?) typical home education day in their house. Our days recently have been fairly humdrum but here is how we went about education on Monday, which we designated a geography day. I confess, having run out of phone battery on Monday, when Tuesday took a similar slant, I took a few more photos and slotted them in to where we also did things on Monday 😉
We tend to do a couple of things first each day, brain warm ups, some maths, English, science or whatever. Often they do a drawing and some music practice, though that has gone by the by a little just lately. It allows me to do jobs, feed Bene etc and wakes them up. Currently Maddy is immersed in science and Amelie in writing a story. Josie likes to do maths and music theory.
We decided to explore European geography. Maddy made a Europe jigsaw.
Josie worked on UK counties, with some help from me (it’s hard!)
Pictures nearly done. I think they did 10 of them in the end.
And then it was 3.30pm which means time to have a snack, get changed and in the case of Amelie and Josie (and Fran) go out for 4 hours gymnastics. Maddy sometimes does TKD in the evenings but recently she has been joining up with a friend of ours and his son, a bass player and a drummer and taking her guitar along to do some jamming. She sings too and they are fabulous.
So that was our day.
