Our first week of kindergarten was lovely and very simple. I decided to start our days with "circle time" for all three girls with a bit of Mother Goose (I just heard from Andrew Pudewa in an interview that early reading of Mother Goose indicates later skill with Shakespeare and his sonnets and iambic pentameter - so interesting!), a bit of Scripture, and a song or two. The Mother Goose is clearly the favorite part of this routine; today we had a rollicking series of
"Gallop a dreary dun! With a heighty gaily gamberally higgledy piggledy niggledy niggledy! Gallop a dreary dun!"
taking turns bouncing around on mommy's knee. Happy. This Circle Time will theoretically develop into a longer routine as the children get older and we have additional subjects that we can cover together in a group and will provide a good consistent routine for the beginning of our days, I hope. For now it's inauspicious and quiet (or squealy, I suppose, as today showed) and not trying to be much of anything.
Rosie has a surprising skill screwing in screws with the drill. Power tools: all part of a well-rounded two year old education, right?
