Family Meeting on Friday - The Five Year Old

Yes, the Family Meeting does include Kip.

In a previous post, I mentioned that we went on a different journey this week with our lessons.  We usually pursue various unit studies together as a family.  This year, we were doing a world geography study.  We were doing well with it but seemed to need a bit of a change-up.  So last week, we went all-out CM.  Lots of independant reading, more tales and literature than usual, even music lessons every day.    It went great!!! 

For her part in the Family Meeting on Friday, the Five Year Old (and Kip) narrated, "The Tale of Peter Rabbit," " The Three Little Kittens, " and "The Three Little Pigs".  I do not know when she had that last one read to her, but she must have gotten an older sibling to indulge her.    She also took her turn playing guitar for us ;)

She wasn't feeling well by mid afternoon, so she participated in one game from our Family Math book and then had to head on to bed.  If she had felt up to it, she could have participated in other Fine Arts related activities; but she couldn't make it and had to have a nap.

I think that most little ones love to be the center of attention and tell their stories.  This was a great opportunity for her to begin learning to narrate aloud and she really enjoyed it!
