Today we spent alot of time learning in the boys room (which is finally nearly finihsed), it is heavily Waldorf inspired and creates a lovely, relaxing envoriment to learn in. We used wooden blocks to count, build and learn about different shapes as well as width and length. I gave the boys an equal amount of the same size and shape blocks for them to count, I then challenged them to see who could make the tallest tower and then the widest. We discussed the shape of each block and looked at the difference between 2D and 3D shapes.
We enjoyed a short music lesson with our instruments and sung our favourite nursery rhymes.
We also played one of our matching games, and practiced sounding out the letters and words writting on them.
We ended our school week with a fire in the garden and roasted marshmallows!
