An uneven start to the day but we pressed on with spelling practice and guided reading. (Diary of a Wimpy Kid* is a close runner up to the Stink chapter books.)

Briefly breaking for snack, I took the opportunity to do some chores while the kids were occupied. Then, my lovely Spanish teacher arrived and taught the kids for an hour until lunchtime.

After an extended lunch break, we resumed Spanish ourselves with our workbooks – plus this simpleĀ Spanish colours word search, by way of revision. We were all Spanished-out toward the end of the day, so we finished with a cute dinosaur cut-and-paste activity. Just because cut-and-paste is still fun even when your big kids aren’t quite so little anymore.
