Dem Bones

Tuesday was another productive pyjama day.  We started off with making biscuit dough to chill ready for later.
English was looking at poetry, Jabberwocky in particular, so we had fun with that.  Maths took far longer than it should because Sam found out the problem solving section of Mathletics had been updated and spent an hour on there.
With Latin and Spanish ticked off we spent the rest of the morning finishing off Sam’s Ancient India lapbook. Long time since we’ve done a lapbook, still not sold on them but added something different to what we have been doing.

After lunch we moved on to science.  Bones! Reading and BrainPop videos.
We labelled bones on each other. Sam made a biscuit hand with the correct number of bones.  Then he made a spine with polo vertebrae, jelly ring cartilage and strawberry laces for the spinal cord.  We finished off with a model bone from sponges, kitchen roll tube, felt and wool.

I spent the evening, hopefully ironing out the last few niggles with not having right fonts, programs, files, boxes ticked on programs to be productive workwise. Sam is keen on gaining independence in the kitchen so he spent the evening practicing making a varied selection of hot drinks and keeping me company with typically random conversation – think we covered time turners and Harry Potter and Hiroshima at some point.
