December 23, 2019

Today, we are working on a puzzle, went to see Frozen 2, did a chapter in Life of Fred: Algebra, and practiced piano. 

One of our Christmas traditions is doing a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle together. This year’s puzzle is Cobble Hill’s “Yellow” in “The Rainbow Project” puzzle series. We’ve also done green, blue, and black & white. We only just realized that all of the puzzles form one long puzzle. The yellow puzzle is orangey-yellow on the left side and greenish-yellow on the right side, because it goes between “Orange” and “Green.”

Regarding the plot of Frozen 2, I found this article interesting:

We’re currently in Chapter 6 of Life of Fred: Algebra. I would love to finish this book by the end of next summer, and while I think that’s doable, it’s going to mean that I have to remember to do math. There’s no rush. Gemma’s “ahead” of where she “needs” to be. I could not do math with her for a couple of years, and she would still be where she “needs” to be. But it’s nice and neat and tidy to do a math book per year, isn’t it? There’s something that feels good about it. So, maybe we’ll complete algebra in August, or maybe we’ll take all of 2020. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Just thoughts.

I’m liking having Gemma track her piano practice with tiny Candyland stickers. It’s helping her see what she has and has not done. The visual means that it’s not me telling her to practice, it’s her piece of paper - and it’s difficult to argue with a piece of paper.😉
