Week 39 – Finding Nemo Results

Pegasus was very invested in this movie. He shouted things at the screen when they didn’t do what he wanted them to do.

Dance

As per usual, I didn’t do anything specific for this.

Music

His scales are coming along nicely and he willingly practises both his scales and the pieces in the book.

Basic Information

We are working on the day before and the day after any given day. The months of the year is going well. All months have proper pronounciation now, and we’re working on the month before and after any given month. That’s coming slowly.

We practised the seasons, but he still needs help remembering them in French.

Printing words

Pegasus was willing to change his letters a little bit, but spacing is still a problem, as is the size of the letters (l and t being tall letters, for example). He says “It’s fine” when I point it out.

Counting objects/math-type activities

He said he didn’t know what the numbers were in French, but he had no problem counting this week.

Math worksheets. He had a rough morning on Monday, so he found it really hard to focus. He needed me to walk him through the big additions, even though he knows them. (He was so disappointed that there were no subtractions, it was like his brain just gave up on him.)

Storytime

We read several French library books this week. He did very well.

Activity

Learn about shipwrecks – He said this was scary.

Make fish and chips – He was very excited to learn how to use the knife and was careful when doing so. He was very enthusiastic and he listened well. I don’t think it’ll be something that he’ll ask to make again.

Learn about sustainable fishing – He seemed interested, but didn’t have any questions.

Week 40 – Beauty and the Beast

A classic from the Golden Age is a nice way to wrap up the school year.

Week 38 – How to Train Your Dragon Results

Pegasus was enthralled by this movie. He had seen it before a long time ago, so it was a little like watching it for the first time. I forget how fast they talk, so I’m not sure how much of the nuance he got, but he understood the general plot. He was incredibly enthusiastic about the flying (and the music).

Dance

As per usual, I didn’t do anything specific for this.

Music

His scales are coming along nicely and he willingly practises both his scales and the pieces in the book.

Basic Information

We are working on the day before and the day after any given day. The months of the year is going well. All months have proper pronounciation now, and we’re working on the month before and after any given month. That’s coming slowly.

Printing words

Pegasus was willing to change his letters a little bit, but spacing is still a problem. He says “It’s fine” when I point it out.

Counting objects/math-type activities

A little trouble counting in French when he got distracted, but he was able to focus and get it all done.

Math worksheets. Zero problems with these. He did them so fast that he missed the ‘0’ on the 30 and 50, but he added them willingly.

Storytime

We got several French library books this week. He was very excited.

Activity

Design a dragon – He didn’t want to design a dragon from scratch, but he was quite happy to draw Toothless, so that is what we did. We used Art Hub’s instructional video (which is the series that we have been using since Dragon decided that we needed to do “art school” on Sundays). Pegasus reacts positively to these videos, so of course I said yes.

Make a paper boat – He did this entirely by himself (I only held the paper down so that it didn’t wiggle away on him). He was very proud of himself.

Learn about prosthetics – He enjoyed learning about the history of prosthetics and how they’re made, and we found some recent videos of a girl with prosthetics – he wanted to watch her opening her Christmas gifts. I think he liked the laid-back activity and cuddling up to me.

Week 39 – Finding Nemo

Pegasus loves this movie.

Week 37 – Curious George Results

Pegasus adored this movie. He laughed a lot. He was terrified near the end when George was captured, climbing onto my lap and burying his face in my chest. He really related to the little monkey.

Dance

As per usual, I didn’t do anything specific for this.

Music

His scales are coming along nicely and he willingly practises both his scales and the pieces in the book. He’s only 20 pages away from finishing the first book.

Printing words

Pegasus was willing to change his letters a little bit, but spacing…

Counting objects/math-type activities

This week, he had trouble with the French version of numbers. It was weird. He said he was tired. He wasn’t focussing well, so I believe it.

Math worksheets. He did them so fast, and only made one mistake (10-3), which he corrected.

Storytime

We have no French library books this week, so he read some French books through Boukili.

Activity

Bake with bananas – He made banana pancakes for dinner. He did everything himself, including cracking the eggs and flipping the pancakes! I’m super proud of him for getting past his fear of the hot plate and making yummy pancakes.

Make a crown – He had fun making this, but didn’t really want to draw on it. He wrote his name on the other side of the crown.

Paint – He was so excited to do the painting. His is on the abstract side. He described it for me, and I copied it down verbatim.

The pale blue is the sky, the red is blood from the two white people. The red-black is a magic horse with a long tail, and the black below it is its blood. The dark green is a magic rocking chair, which is where the two white people came from. On the right is an equal sign. The orange is the red blood’s blood. The yellow is the multiplication of the orange’s blood. The pink is the yellow’s blood. The purple is the pink’s blood. The dark blue is the rocking chair’s blood.
His reasoning: There is so much blood because everybody who keeps coming to this place dies.

Week 38 – How to Train Your Dragon

The staple. The first movie that occurred to me back in 2020 for Dragon and gave me the name for the homeschool for her.

Week 36 – Strange World Results

Pegasus liked this movie. He says “I liked it! It was good,” and when pressed about what parts exactly he liked, he says “I liked all of it!”

Dance

As per usual, I didn’t do anything specific for this.

Music

Printing words

Pegasus has forgotten to drop his p’s below the line, and didn’t care to fix it. Great g on page 1 though.

Counting objects/math-type activities

This week, he had trouble with the direction of his 7’s. He fixed them.

Math worksheets. Zero problems with these, after we walked through the series on page 2.

Storytime

We have no French library books this week, so he read some French books through Boukili.

Activity

Draw by number – he was very excited to trace the puppy

Garden – It was very hot, but Pegasus stuck it out. He preferred collecting the discarded stuff and watering. He was not a fan of getting his hands dirty, even though he was wearing gloves (tbh, that tracks). He helped plant zucchini.

Learn about body systems – he was deeply invested in the videos and answered the quiz questions at the end of each one correctly.

Week 37 – Curious George

This is one of the cutest movies I’ve ever seen. I find it a challenge to watch it without smiling. It also has SO MANY potential activities, it’s hard to just pick 3.

Week 35 – Brave Results

Pegasus enjoyed this movie, especially the antics of the triplets (I’m shocked, I tell you). I thought it was funny that he made a book about a bear last week, when this week was the movie about a bear, but I guess it’s just a coincidence.

Dance

As per usual, I didn’t do anything specific for this.

Printing words

I had to draw the lines in because the printer decided not to work properly. Pegasus decided to completely ignore the lines in retaliation lol

Counting objects/math-type activities

He wrote the 9 and 6 backward, but he fixed them without complaint.

Math worksheets. Zero problems with these. He was extremely proud of his star. His 7 was backward again, but he fixed it no problem.

Storytime

We have no French library books this week, so he read some French books through Boukili.

Activity

Elements of a fairy tale – We discussed what elements are in fairy tales, and how the movie showed (or tweak) them. Then, Pegasus came up with a fairy tale of his own, which was so much fun! Here it is:

Once upon a time, in a kingdom far, far away, there lived a king with a daughter. She had lots of special powers, like healing, turning invisible, and being really good at hiding. A witch heard about these special powers and wanted them for her own, so she snuck into the castle and stole the princess away! She turned the princess into a talking frog and put her in a tower, far away from the kingdom she had grown up in. The witch told the princess that she had seven nights to figure out how to turn back into a human, or else she would remain a frog for all time, and her powers would belong to the witch. The princess, on the first night, turned invisible and snuck out of the tower. She knew that if she made it back to her kingdom, she would return human. Her journey home was fraught (my word lol) with danger. She fought off a snake that wanted to eat her, but she escaped. She was almost eaten by a crocodile, but she escaped. She was almost eaten by a heron, but she escaped. At long last, she made it to her kingdom. The instant she crossed the border, she became human again, right before the clock struck midnight on the seventh night. Her father was so happy to have her home once more.

Make spell cake – We did not make spell cake, and instead made iced cookies from Dragon’s Disney cookbook. Pegasus loved making these. They were extremely drippy and messy, but they were delicious!

Learn about bears – He enjoyed the video about bears for kids and randomly spouted facts the next day that he’d gotten from the video, so I gather he paid attention.

Week 36 – Strange World

The last new movie! The first time I saw this, I knew exactly what I was looking at once they descended into the caves. I look forward to this week.
