English is one of my favourite subjects to teach Lulu - there are so many options. Spending time on grammar, parts of speech and the like is essential but thankfully so many other activities can keep it fresh and current; actually this can be said of all subjects if you take the time to brainstorm new ideas.
Some of the things we like to do include:
- writing blog posts
- book reviews
- word searches
- writing letters
- summarising articles of interest
- writing stories
- crossword puzzles
- reading a variety of books
- listening to stories or documentaries
Every day continues to be an adventure - today she only did rote math, piano and art - the rest takes a backseat as she prepares mentally for her first tap Eisteddford this evening. The nerves are frayed and emotions sitting close to the surface.
