One night while we were going over skip counting 11s, she realized there was a pattern. So I taught her how to multiply by 11s, which she thought was neat-o.
Another night, we were reading My Bookhouse. We read "The Elves and the Shoemaker." (He lived a good, pure life; so his heart was light amidst all his troubles, and he went peacefully to bed, trusting that he could finish the shoes the next day and sell them. Leaving all his cares to heaven, he fell asleep.) The first night, it's one pair of shoes. The second night, it's two pairs. The third night, it's four. I asked my daughter how many shoes were in one pair, how many were in two pairs, etc. She was very excited to have figured that out too. After the story, I got out my multiplication Wrap-Up and she was able to do the 2s.A Formidable List of Attainments includes #15: to tell three stories about their own "pets"--rabbit, dog or cat.
Once upon a time, Annabelle Bunny stretched out on the floor beside her busy child...
7.After, she went puddle jumping with friend S (puddle jumping just out of frame).
10.We looked at some of Giotto's paintings. Her favorite was one of his Annunciation paintings. I drew a coloring page with Sharpie on watercolor paper, and Daughter painted. She asked such good questions, like "Why does Mary have a halo?" and "Why does she have a Bible on her lap?" We talked about the painting in terms of what Giotto was trying to show (example: Mary was pure and obeyed God).
