Elodie is learning the sound 'ar'. Together we worked out how to spell barn, farm, car, park, darn and arm. She also completed a dot to dot in tens (10, 20, 30 etc) which she has not done before.
Both girls completed their pig workbooks and Lucia read 'duck', 'dog' and 'cat' from flashcards. I am noticing a difference between the two eldest with their spelling. Elodie spells out the words and then condenses the letters into a word and Lucia obviously does the process very quickly in her head. She said 'duck' almost immediately.
This morning we made butter!
We put some whipping cream in a pot with a pinch of salt, a tiny bit of yellow food colouring and a clean marble and shake shake shake shake shake shake. The girls took it in turns to shake the pot which eventually ended up as a crazy dance around the house. Suddenly we couldn't hear the marble inside the pot anymore. We took off the lid and hey presto!... butter!
