Today was our first day back to school after our trip. (we spent Friday recovering/unpacking and the girls had gymnastics yesterday)
We did manage to get everything done but it seemed soooo much harder to concentrate and settle down.
We started with a group science lesson - we worked on elements (including a quick review of the periodic table) and discussed common elements and their uses as well as some common compounds and their names/formula (salt, sugar, chalk, water, baking powder etc)
DD2 did shapes and coloured them in (on her chalk desk)
and chopstick work
DD4 did some phonics work and games (s and a)
and worked on her Egyptian project
DD6 did a review on the exclamation mark
made some 3 part cards for wind (breeze, gale, hurricane and tornado)
worked on number bonds and continued her desert project.
DD8 worked on her 'Famous people in History' book,
double digit multipliers (with the large bead frame), Life in Deserts, editing sentence's and made some fruit kebabs for FIG tonight.
I'm just glad the day is over and I will be even gladder (if that's a word??) when I can go to bed.
night, night : )
