Classical Conversations of Kenmore
Week 3 Wrap Up!
Smooth, easy days...?
We all have ups and downs with each new thing we do - you may not be experiencing the 'up' yet! Each child will have their own pattern to follow, and will all come around eventually. Don't be discouraged if you're still having trouble doing school at home - especially if this is your first year, or your kids are small. School for the younger ages is mostly just to get them used to doing it - anything they retain is bonus! I'll make a confession - this is the first year that my schedule has actually worked!! Abby is in second grade, and finally has to maturity to work with me, and spends less time working against me. Keep the faith!! Take a few minutes this week and email the other moms in your child's class - plan a park day and share the encouraging things that are happening in your house!!
You must be logged in to C3 to access this copyrighted content. Your child's tutor may have simplified some of the very fast or complicated signs. The video is also quite flowing and graceful, which is not exactly how I do it :-D
Week 3 Lesson Plan:
How some of this week's content will be further explored in Essentials and Challenge!
For Week 4:
Many of you are getting mixed up, reading that silly chart in the parent handbook. Just keep an eye on this space to see when you're on duty!! I'll change the format here and see if it helps!
Family Presentation: Bresler
Red: Kitchen & Bath
Orange: Fellowship Hall Clean Up (after lunch)
Yellow: Playground Supervisors (12:25 - 1pm)
Green: Nursery Help (need to go in before Opening)
Student Presentation Topic: Favorite Bible Story
(topics are suggestions only, use whatever your family likes!)
Open House - Week 4:
If you have a friend who would like to come, please send them THIS LINK to sign up. Please do NOT invite them to simply come with you!! I will need extra supplies for each student, and the tutors need time to prepare for an extra student.
- The Core Book Club was really good this week! It's not to late if you want to join! Just email me and I can send you the link!
- Great job picking a class and staying there! Most of the tutors had help all day - thank you! If you notice that you picked a class and there are LOTS of moms there, consider slipping to another one for the rest of the day.
- Thank you so much to Jaimie & Eva for help in the nursery today!
- I re-sent an invitation to the yearbook today. Let me know if you didn't get it. There is an app for Andriod that lets you upload photos straight from your phone - someone with an iPhone check and see if you can find one - look for TreeRing. You'll probably need to set up your account from a computer before signing in with the app.
This interactive calendar will always have all our events listed, and you can click to add any event to your personal calendar!
I've had 3 votes so far... you don't get to complain that you don't like the yearbook format if you don't vote!!
Please preview any online content for your own children. Not all content will be appropriate for all ages, or for your particular family.
NF Magic School Bus - S3:E12 - Interconnected Life (general life science)
NF Cat in the Hat - S1:E7 - animals who live in trees, camouflage
Compare this weeks History, Science & Geography with Story of The World, Mystery of History, and the "All you need to know about..." series! Perfect if your student needs to do some reading, or wants just a little bit more information!
