A Math Block

I have some catching up to do on my homeschool blogging! Back in January we did a short math block for both Robin & Elsa combined. Both are already very familiar with numbers, but Robin needed some review of Roman numerals and Elsa didn't know them at all. So we reviewed number qualities, Roman numerals, tally marks, number words, and some form drawing. We had a fairy tale and a riddle for most of the numbers as well. It was a fun, quick lesson block that was a great start to the new year. Below are my chalkboard drawings for each number, the children copied them into their main lesson books.

Easter Morning

Our Easter morning was sweet and peaceful and filled with delicious food, handmade surprises, and fluffy little chicks. We spent a quiet morning listening to the songs of birds, laughter of happy children, and guidance from our spiritual leaders. It was truly a joyful morning!
