February Wrap up...

February started out filled with promise of exciting plans
of days filled with stimulating lessons and imaginative play time.
I am happy to say, we had many days of exciting moments of
inspired learning and much imaginative play! We also had days spent
in our jammies willing spring to come just a bit quicker.
We had big messes and meltdowns. Play dates that went well
and some that well, lets just say we won't record them for prosperity.
We had feasts prepared by our own wee little hands and happy meals
grabbed as we passed a drive up window.
We have sorted, washed and folded loads upon loads of laundry,
dusted and vacuumed and organized the house from top to bottom,
only to have it look like a Nor'easter blew in hours later.
We have made great art and listened to great music, visited with friends and
family, driven down the shore and each other crazy.
Princess has made great strides in her reading and amazing discoveries of how the world works.
Today I will take down the February bulletin boards and art work and Monday we will begin
our lesson plans for March. I will post them in a little while...won't you join us?

What a fabulous month. It is always so nice to look back and celebrate all you have done - you always realise it is more than you thought at the time.

The snazzy little bird looks just like our finch Zip must look in his dreams!

What a beautiful way to record what you have done, and how much Princess has learned.

Nice summary of your month and it looks like Princess enjoyed herself.

I love the photos of the little bird.

cool wrap up. Love your use of the word Nor'easter, it reminds me of the A.A.Milne poem Sand Between The Toes.

I love all the stuff you are doing. Princess is a lucky girl.

I too love the recap of your month. Day to day I think, "What did we learn" but yet looking back I think we enjoyed some wonderful times yet some not so great. But overall, it was productive. :) Can't wait to see March.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
