Bread making

We had a beautiful break from this blog and we are ready to start again. It has been a season for learning new things and discovering.

During May we are also exloring different bread recipes, every Friday we will make a batch and try it for the week. As we knead the bread we sing the song that my children have grown accustomed to:

Maria the baker girl, she likes to knead the bread......Rebecca, the baker girl, she likes to knead the bread,....Samuel the baker boy, he likes to knead the bread. (do, fa fa fa la fa fa, la sol fa sol la fa.)

This first recipe has sorghum flour 5c, white flour 7c, yeast 2pck, warm water 4c, olive oil 1/3c, honey 2tbs, and salt 2tsp. Baked at 400 for 35 minutes.

Still Reading

We had a rocky start of the year with math, so i took some time to figure out how to approach it better, it seems to me right now that i have to use more outdoor games and jumping for math with my oldest daughter.

She, on the contrary does very fast in language, started reading readers just this last summer, but yesterday She took a great leap and read 250 pages of Pinocchio in one day! i thought i will leave this spurt of reading go for a while, and come back to language lessons shortafter. Meanwhile we will also do jumping rope and all the math we can outdoors....

Reading and playing

Some of the things that we are enjoying most is reading and playing.

The book that accompanied us during summer was Heidi, lovingly chapters and very well written, after that we are finishing a compillation of stories and legends from Leo Tolstoy, a delight to the ears and our hearts, especially the stories of the Godson and the one based on the story of Saint Martin. I am so glad the year is ahead where we will be discovering other jewels in literacy!

The playing of course still is at its high, and especially now that the homeschool co-op has started, we are getting plenty time to play in our morning program The Children of The Forest.
