Starting the Discussion
I'll share a quick look at something I'm hoping to write about more soon: my own history keeping. Here's what I've got going so far as we finish up Term 1 this week...
As you can see, these are works in progress, but I'm having fun with these simple but effective activities. I feel like they're boosting my retention of the readings and helping me make connections -- and I'm having fun with it too! And my Big Kids and I enjoy seeing how different our maps and charts look. For example, here are their century-charts-in-progress at the end of Term 1:
Seeing our work side by side drives home how personal these are to the student. They require the student to cull, organize, connect, ponder, notice. There is no formula to make some perfect final product. This is mind work coming through in ink. It's inspiring to watch and even more to join in on!
This Month's Round-Up
Some bloggy favorites from September...
I always enjoy the weekly round-ups at A Peace in the Puzzle -- this time she got me with her Til We Have Faces excerpt (it's perpetually on my to-read list!) and the connection she made between Mr. Legality and Seneca.
Melanie takes their Morning Basket on the go!
Don't miss these lovely words Amy shares from her commonplace. I've been thinking a lot about place and space -- so intangible but also so tangible. This quote hits that balance so well.
Hurrah for another peek at Moozle's work from the ever-inspiring Carol!
