We mostly did arts and crafts this week and battled ear infections and colds.
We’ve read a lot of Christmas books, including:

Bear has been reading the following books on her own:

Math has been more or less just counting down to Christmas with a bit of addition practice (at school). She’s also been working on short bead chains at school and is up to the 4 chain (there are 4 sets of 4 beads linked together and she counts them in 4’s adding a little arrow with the correct number at each 4th bead – it’s to learn 4 squared.)
I’ve been busy planning units on Frogs and Polar Bears/the Arctic (totally unrelated, I know) to take us through to the end of January.
