We recently finished The Tale of Despereaux. This would be my third time reading this Newbery winning book aloud; obviously, it is one of my favorites. It does have some dark undertones, so I would save it for a more mature child who is ready to discuss the writer's words.
There is a real richness about this book, deserving of a set of copywork pages. I purposefully chose some passages with interesting punctuation marks (parenthesis, ellipses, colons,etc.), and I will discuss them with Elijah as he completes the pages.
Please save these copywork pages for a child who has read the book as context is important for many of these quotes.
Just give the image a click, and don't forget to share this post with others!
I am so sorry to my subscribers! Someone hacked into the Feedburner account and sent out an inappropriate (and annoying!) email. I think Jason has it secured now, so please don't be afraid to read the next email that comes to your inbox.
In other news, Merry Christmas Eve!
In even other news, we've been approved to adopt Sweet Girl!!!
I've always wanted to compose a super random blog post.
This post is sponsored by my favorite homeschool convention, Great Homeschool Conventions. This post also contains an affiliate link.
It's the last hour. And people keep asking me what I would like to receive for Christmas.
I have had an amazing experience each time I've gone to this convention–receiving an entire weekend to retreat, refresh, and renew myself and my vision for our homeschool.
So, if people are still asking you for gift ideas, tell them you'd like to go to a Great Homeschool Convention! If you need a super gift for a homeschooling friend or your family, consider registering for the gift that will educate, encourage, and equip!
