Not sewing this time...and no new cooking tricks either. No....I've been learning lots of new things, or should I say re-learning things I've long since forgotten. It's an inevitable side effect of having children, and helping in their classrooms.
Mr Busy's teacher wants him to practice his handwriting skills. So he has a bunch of sheets to work through and we just hand them in as he completes a set. I've decided I need to learn Victorian Modern Cursive handwriting too. Given the amount of time I spend helping kids with spelling and language, it's probably way past time. So Mr Busy & I sit at the table, him with his sheets and me with some dotted third paper his Prep/1 teacher gave me last year and we practice together. My hybrid style of writing is nothing like the very controlled way the kids are meant to write! All those ticks and kicks on the beginnings and ends of letters.....whew!
I'm also relearning division. ~sigh~ I hated maths at school. It confounded me completely. However, second time round, as an adult it seems to be sinking in a little better. Either that or Miss Sunshine's teacher is just really really good at his job LOL. I must be more logical than I was as a child too, because I find myself able to work through word problems successfully. Perhaps a little late in coming....but I am getting there LOL.
