Work for Everyone!
Well this week was a bit of a rough one with the places we needed to go and the things that we needed to do. Pup went to town on her Cheetah work, which I showed you the other day, and Bunny….well…we have had better weeks. I did spend some serious time looking into some new ways to do math in the hopes of helping Bunny remember how she really does love math. I dont know what to do with her about that. I re-presented bead frame and found some of the bead frame paper to help. We did a ton of problems and she admitted that it was kinda fun! 😉 I think that I am also going to present her with adding fractions next week. She loves them and has done quite a bit of work on the equivalencies. On the project side, we decided to boil her into to help it get darker, and it worked! She was so happy and excited that it worked! We were able to use a calligraphy pen to write words and she also dyed some paper with it to make it a nice light pink! She is now saving up some beet tops from some of our cooking to use to make some more ink! I guess I was wrong on her interest. She is really trying to find another way to do it. What I dont have is alot of ways to get information. There are no books on it in our library, and there are not too many good websites either. I need to do a little research for her I think. Not maybe the proper way, but it is just too difficult for her to sit and wade through all the website with me. So that will make it into our plan for next week’s worth! She has also been doing alot of creating with some of the creative materials on the art shelf! She found some wood scraps and made a stool. Here is some other work that she has done this week!

That is so great that the ink finally worked! It can be so disheartening to watch your child struggle too – it looks like there are some good things coming through it all 🙂 Yay!

Yeah, it has been a tricky thing. But it seems to have fueled her desire to know more. She asked me to find out if there was an ink factory we could visit!?!

Yay!!! So glad to read about the ink!! The perseverance paid off! I have to ask where you got your bead frame paper? I don’t like ours and would love to get some like yours!

Hi Lisa, I found the paper for free on this site:
I really liked it because it has the colors right on the paper (and it was free), so you can use a regular pencil if you wanted to! I hope that help!
