Our Los Banos Homeschool
The minimum of what I expect from her for the time being is a picture (drawn by her, cut out of a magazine or a colouring page) and a few key sentences about what we have read. Sometimes we just use key sentences from the book and use them as copywork. To me, it is important that she retains the information. When she doesn't write things down or draw a picture, she forgets the whole story, lesson or whatever we were working on. Girls love to make things pretty, as does Mia and this has been the key to her success in retaining information. The only drawback so far is that we can't always find notebooking pages (FOR FREE) that correspond to what we are learning. Luckily I have stumbled upon a really neat http://www.squidoo.com/make-notebooking-pages and have just created my first notebooking page for our upcoming study of Franz Liszt. What do you think?
