On Monday the girls wanted to make cakes! We had lots of very ripe fruit in the house so we made some scrummy wholemeal fruit muffins (I don't have a photo of the end products... they didnt last long enough!!). Here`s a video and some photos of the cooking though! The girls even did the washing up (and everything came out clean, without even flooding the floor!!) :)
Yesterday before the girls went to tennis we made good use of a short amount of time by doing some grammar. I don't use the term 'grammar' with the girls, I don't feel any need to confuse them with technical terms, but we did practise the past which is what the use a lot in their homework. I chose some words for Judit that she uss a lot and she new most of them without any help (yes some of the spelling is wrong, but that's another lesson!!). Sara did ome which follow the '-ed' pattern first which was nice and easy because she knows play - played and easily applied the rule (add -ed) to the rest of the words. Afterwards she did some irregular words that she uses a lot. She needed quite a lot of help for this, but the more we do these little exercises, the more naturally it will come to her.
Afterwards Judit did a very short exercise with some words she has trouble reading when she reads stories. I just wrote the words for her and asked her to write a sentance using each one. She did it very quickly and very well:
