While we do our circle time and math games in the living room, the dining room table sees the bulk of our book work. We just started Grade 1 with my daughter this week–she is SO excited!–and are continuing kindy with my son. Though, this year with Grade 1 bringing more rhythm to our lives, his kindy has been stepped up a notch as well and I am adding a good circle time and a weekly story to our rhythm of weekly home activities.
We do a nature walk, garden work and house cleaning, handwork, baking and painting for our weekly rhythm. I also try to keep a swimming day in there, though I find with fall and winter colds–which have already started!–it is hard to fit it in weekly. And I’m also hoping to start a weekly music gathering either in my home or at the library for little ones and their parents. I’ll keep you posted!
