An ordinary day

An ordinary homeschooling day for us consists of some table time in the morning covering basic skills - reading, writing and maths, an afternoon activity such as art, craft or cooking and lots of playtime.

Today was one of those days, so Hannah started with her journal which we try to do everyday. 

Last week in her work book she was learning about adding and subtracting using tens and ones columns, so today i wrote out a few pages of sums to remind her and make sure it had sunk in - it had!!

Then she did some writing practice as she is not so good at writing on the lines and keeping to size yet, she is getting there though!  

Then she finished her second box of Bob Reading Books. These have been really useful as they have given her a lot of confidence and she was so proud today when she read to the end without any problems. 

This was her favourite page, she now wants chickens in her bedroom so they can lay eggs in HER bed................... Errrm no!!

After lunch we went to the playground for some fresh air, Hannah spent most of the time galloping around on an imaginary horse, but did have a little play on the equipment as well.

On the way home we stopped off to get some plasticine as Hannah wanted to do some modeling and make some pictures.

She made a family, a giraffe and a fairy teacup and saucer.

She finished her day having a quiet time before bed listening to 'Five Go Adventuring Again' on story cd and looking at her pony books.

Sounds like a wonderful day.
I love the plasticine models, and the maths is really impressive. Go Hannah!
