We had another two homeschool girls join us today, B6 and R5.  Though their mum sent them along with a bag full of independent table time activities I took the opportunity of having extra little people in the house to play some games, read some stories and have some play time.  (Oh they did do some of their table time work as well!)

 

We started the day with playing a new game called “Zoob”.  Fantastic game.  It covered skills such as spacial/building skills, strategic/planning skills, and then of course, when you play any game there are the skills of following the rules, being gracious to others, and keeping focused!  This is a game I highly recommend for any family.

 

We then had our table time (when I taught Daniel his phonics lessons) and morning tea – which the kids took outside and played in the cubby while they ate.  I think they played more than they ate because when I called them in to read our FIAR story they brought their morning tea with them.  We read “Andy and the Lion” which I hardly remember from previous FIAR rounds though Jess remembered it clearly.  After we read it we discussed many of the concepts that are written in the FIAR manual, since this was going to be the only time we read the book.  I may actually keep a few of the activities/notebooking opportunities for times when I need Daniel to do an independent activity over the next few weeks.  Though it makes me sad to say goodbye to FIAR we are moving onto KONOS for Nomi and Daniel’s studies.  Actually its not a real and proper good bye to FIAR because I love it too much so we will do different books much like we did today – grab a book, enjoy the story and learn what we can from it in the time we have and we’ll do that every so often.  You can never say goodbye to a true friend!
