I found an article on copywork as I was clicking around this weekend and immediately set out to work it into our day. I have halfheartedly had Sugar Plum do copywork the past couple of years, but I am hoping to be committed to it on a daily basis now. We are using sheets of paper for this week's work, but once Thanksgiving is over, I will buy the notebooks that the author recommends (I believe that I saw them at Staples). My plan is to continue doing our regular schoolwork in the morning and then later in the day (at about 2:30 or 3 when my little ones start to get peckish) have a nice snack, a little classical music, and then do some copywork. It worked out really well today and gives them something to do for a little while
We had the boys tested for speech therapy last week and I picked up the speech therapist's reports today. The situation for both kids is more serious than we even thought, so the next month or so will be spent working to get them into the public school's speech program. I was encouraged by the women at the county that I spoke to, so hopefully we'll get them situated quickly.
We've been working and playing by the fire all day today! It's chilly out there!
