Week 21 – The Princess and the Frog Results

Virtual school went fairly well this week, although before it started, Dragon said “my head wants to be on a pillow”. Poor thing. I understand – I’m tired too.

She sang the bonjour song, raised her hand for the days of the week twice, and was able to tell the day based on the calendar (although she couldn’t say the year, but that’s ok).

She was able to write multiple words that started with the letter ‘s’, and she got multiple compliments from the teachers over her printing.

She liked the book that was read to her, but I’m not sure how much she understood.

Math after lunch was a bit more independent than she’s used to. They were given a link to a website with subtraction games (click and drag). She enjoyed it once she got the hang of it, and even asked for more.

Then they students learned about gravity with paper. That was fun.

And Dragon got to present her nebula to the class! She was very happy that they seemed to like it.

Homeschool was a lot of cooking this week (to nobody’s surprise, if you’ve seen the movie).

Dance

She did ballet 2 times this week, and practiced doing the spilts.

Music

Piano: Started off the same as usual, did not get there first counting right, but then got all the rest right. No recollection of the dotted half note, so she just let that go. They did the first three lessons, no problem as usual (A, B, C, D, and E). However, when they got to the next lesson, adding the F and G, she couldn’t remember anything at all. Focus, concentration, and memory was gone out the window. And then it came back (after threat of the lesson ending).

We have a new French playlist that I can play through the Google, with a variety of artists.

Crochet

She did not do any this week.

Basic Information

We are working on yesterday (hier) and tomorrow (demain) around any given day. The months of the year is going well. We’re working on the month before and after any given month. That’s coming slowly.

The saisons de l’année are all memorized. We’re working on how each of them feel and the types of things we can do during each of them.

When I ask her “combien” for any of the above, she now responds in complete sentences.

Printing words

Printing went very well this week.

Counting objects/math-type activities

She had no problems with the counting worksheet. She has been counting to 40 out loud (still missing 16, though) and traced my hands to write up to 50.

Math: both worksheets went very well, with no tears.

Storytime

We read stories from the teacher’s outline that was sent to us on Monday. She enjoyed that, and we will continue to do it next week.

We watched Vampirina in French on Disney Plus, one episode a day. Dragon is enjoying it immensely, and is even recognizing some words!

Activity

Cooking rice bowl – We used a recipe that is in Dragon’s Princess cookbook that she got for Christmas called Hoppin’ John’s. It was very yummy.

Baking beignets – This is the recipe used. Dragon used measuring cups and spoons by herself. She rolled the dough.

Learn about frogs – Dragon told me she likes learning about different animals every once in a while.

Week 21 – The Princess and the Frog
