Today we stuck to the same routine as previous days and will continue to stick to this throughout our home schooling experience. We are completeing written work to stick to the national cirriculum, however I am a great lover of Waldorf and I try to incorperate this learning style as much as possible. Our daily schedule is as follows: Super Movers, Phonics and Writing, Break and Snack, Yoga, Art/History, Lunch, Maths, Reading, Zen Den, Story Telling and finally Daily Journal. We play educational games throughout the day (we really love Orchard Toys games).
For Art/History we continued learning about our prehistoric ancistors and cave paintings, particulalry looking at mythological creatures. We found the following videos excellent and the boys really enjoyed watching them: Prehistory: Educational Video for Children and 25 Mythical Creatures and Their Origins. The boys then designed their own Mythical Creatures on tea stained paper to add to their ‘Cave’.
We took a more realxed apporach to numbers today and enjoyed colouring in some colour by number sheets and completed some dot-to-dots that I downloaded and printed.
