Monthly Memories - June 2012


Sharing our Monthly Memories.

As always, sharing a month at a time means that only a snippet is recorded.

Our logic classes with Father N:)  Before Father N left we were blessed that he was able to present a series of logic classes to the children.  We (both children and mums) thoroughly enjoyed his presentations and learnt so much.  Father designed the lessons himself, and presented them on the flat screen.  These lessons were such a blessing and we are still talking and implementing the skills learnt:):)

Maintaining steady progress in the 4Rs, Science and the Humanities.


Spontaneous Learning
Many of our favourite and memorable moments in our home education journey is when our children take up an area of interest and learn of their own volition.
  • Carpenter is enjoying his clarinet, learning several pieces each week.  His teacher is happy with his diligence.
  • Carpenter has once again begun working on his novel.

Hours and hours of playing in the winter sunshine.  Lots of time on the new trampoline.

Jelly Bean 'graduating' to chapter books:)  She is really happy with the Magic Tree House books.

Documentaries Watched
History of Maths (Michelangelo)
Invasions of Mongolia, China & Japan (Einstein)

The consuming reading  of books, in particular living books comprises the bulk of our learning.  I didn't faithfully record all books but I know many more were read.
