Prayer Requests and Praise Reports
Any games or ideas for indoor recess are appreciated! I know it can get a little loud but if we have planned activities for the kids, it should reduce some of the chaos. If you have recess duty and we are going to be indoors, please come with some activities planned or games. I will also try to keep some board games in the supply closet.
Mom's Night Out Thursday January, 28th
We will meet at from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at my house. Feel free to bring your favorite appetizer or dessert.
Open Houses and Informational Meetings
Our first Open House is Tuesday, January 26 from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm. We will have an Information Meeting from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. I highly encourage visitors to stay for the Information Meeting so they can understand the "why" behind what they observe that morning. If they just attend the Open House and do not go to an Information Meeting then they may not understand the philosophy of Classical Education and Classical Conversations. So if you invite friends and family to attend an Open House please stay with them for the Informational Meeting. They are more likely to stay if you do! Also let them know they can bring lunch and eat with us that day.
Children are welcome at the Open House! I will have enough art and science supplies ready. If you have friends that are planning to attend the Open House please let me know how many children to prepare for. I don't want to run out of Art Supplies for them.
Additional Meetings in January:
Information Meeting - January 18th 7:00 to 9:00 pm Panera Bread off 145th and Aspen
Information Meeting - Saturday, January 30th from 9:00 am to 11:00 am Panera Bread off 145th and Aspen. Please RSVP so I can prepare adequately.
How to make tempera paint.
I encourage each of you to go make egg tempera paint at home with your kids this week. We used sidewalk chalk but you can also uses spices in your pantry. You can try cocoa powder, turmeric, paprika and other spices. If you decide to use sidewalk chalk I suggest crushing up smaller pieces of chalk. I broke the chalk into small pieces, placed it in a ziploc bag and used a rolling pin to crush it.
Take one egg yolk and beat well. Mix in 2 tsp of water. Add 1/4 tsp chalk or other medium to a cup. Add 1/2 to 1 tsp of egg mixture to the cup and mix. I did not use organic eggs today but I have read that organic egg yolks make a difference.
How some content we learned this week will be further explored in Essentials and Challenge.
