I’m back!! HAHA
Yesterday was incredibly warm. It was actually very uncomfortable. Most of that was due to high humidity. I just didn’t have the energy or strength to do much of anything. I took a couple naps and still felt as if I hadn’t slept a wink. We were very tempted to turn the a/c on, but I flat out refused!! It took me forever to fall asleep last night because I was so hot and uncomfortable. Most of that just comes from being an old woman though!! HAHA (HUSH!! Nobody had better comment on that!!)
Today I have started lesson plans for next year. I’m mainly working on Language Arts, which consists of English, reading and spelling. Our first book is going to be On the Banks of Plum Creek by Laura Ingalls Wilder. We’ll be reading it out loud together and she’ll do some independent. Our science will tie in with this book with lessons on grasshoppers (life cycle, anatomy, etc.) and wheat (agriculture). We’ll also discuss other insects that can destroy crops. The book will also tie in with social studies where we’ll do a lesson on pioneers. Her bonus spelling words will come from vocabulary used in both those subjects.
If you’re wondering why those particular topics are tied into the book and are being used in those subjects, I recommend that you read On the Banks of Plum Creek to find out!! It’s a good book no matter your age!!
I’m still putting cd’s in books. What a long process that has turned into!! SHEESH It’s getting there though and it’s worth it. The cd’s are so much more organized and take up less space. For those of you wondering, yes, they’re in alphabetical order!! HAHA I’m not being picky though. All the a’s are not alphabetical within the letter, they’re just in there. I did group all the same artists together though. I learned the hard way with the dvd’s that alphabetical within each letter just wasn’t going to work!!
With that, I shall close!! It’s about time to go get K and then there’s more cd’s to take care of while I help with homework. Any ideas what to have for dinner tonight??
