We had another week of Saturday school at our house. Not because my little angel was naughty, but because Dad had to work, and because it was such fun stuff to do!
Social Studies: We read a short biography on Theodore Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss.
Reading: We read The Cat in the Hat. Shayla read some, I read some. We put rhyming words into the end of the sentences. (language)
Art: Shayla painted and we assembled a cat in the hat hat.
We watched The Cat in the Hat video (animated). Shayla likes this one because there are alot of songs. One song in particular that we like, says alot of things in different languages.
We played The Cat in the Hat card game.
Children's Church: Living Inside Out: Under the Tree theme. Sometimes it seems like there is no public place safe for someone with sensory processing disorder. The kids sang some Christmas carols. Safe, right? Wrong! They shouted the song Joy to the World.
We avoided the other songs, too, because they all involved taking other people's hands. Now I hate to be a germaphobe, but we have already had the plague go through our house this year, and I don't want to go there again.
Does anyone else avoid things like this? Am I the only one?
We have not attended the past three weeks because the illness was making it's way through all the family members of this house. Shayla went back to holding her ears during song time. I don't know if it was until she got familiar with the situation again, or it was actually the noise of the songs and games.
Reading: We curled up together and enjoyed reading a chapter from Kit: An American Girl and several Christmas books.
We spent the rest of the day getting things done around the house and playing with toys. We are weeding through some of her toys. Playing with them and deciding if she wants to keep them, store them, or donate them. I should have done this long ago, but better late than never, right?
