Spring Work

Well…it hasn’t sprung yet but this is still the beginning of our Spring school semester. What are we up to besides freezing our bums off at the barn? Well…it’s not so Waldorfy but it’s what we have to do for now.

Mavis Beacon typing program. M does this each morning first thing and then moves on to History at Our House’s free art program. Next week she will begin the Music History course.

At home we’ll be covering measurement, this time volume and weight, as well as continuing the +, -, X, / worksheets for practice. We will also be doing MLBs on Norse mythology and Magic. Magic you ask? Yep. Today we begin study of the four pagan quarter festivals. I think it will be great fun!

At co-op, where I’m teaching a class for the 6-8 year olds, she will take Journalism, Choir, Drama and Chess.

Away from home M will take piano lessons, riding lessons and will begin meetings with a local 4H equestrian group.

Busy, busy and excited about it! The decision to do so much outschooling and the online classes was based in my own need for more time to manage the several smaller and one fairly demanding business I’m running from home.

It may be cold outside but looking forward to this semester, we definitely have a ‘Spring’ in our step!
