Post copywork idea

This is so cool:-) I’m almost inspired to give it a go myself:-) Really nice idea for a Reading Journal.

Math the Play Way

Here are some day-to-day maths activities.

Math the Laundry Way

Here’s how…

The Gaps (make a hammock)

See the ninth paragraph of the main bit here. Talking about how learning to learn is not enough in itself.

The smell of baking bread…

With any luck:-) I followed a link from Thicket Deller, to this site. So many bread (well, flour… but I haven’t looked further than the bread) recipes. And their primers (the Baking Tips link at the bottom).

And now I’m making bread… It’s rising now (well, I hope it is, it’s probably cooler than ideal). We’ll see.

You should also check her next post, all berries and icecream:-)

Homemaking on Purpose

This was timely for me.

What is Your World View?

You scored as Cultural Creative. Cultural Creatives are probably the newest group to enter this realm. You are a modern thinker who tends to shy away from organized religion but still feels as if there is something greater than ourselves. You are very spiritual, even if you are not religious. Life has a meaning outside of the rational.

Why study Latin?

Sarah says it so well.

I choose it because a mind that has been asked to follow a rigourous
learning plan is never out-of-date. My goal as an educator is to equip
my students with the tools they need in order to learn whatever it is
they want to do in life, whether it’s how to work a washing machine or
draft architectural drawings. I believe that with a classical education
my children will have the mental equivalent of a gymnast’s body –
strong, flexible, well-honed, practiced.
