Day 18 was another day of zooming around for classes, but it was the final session of Chloe’s Clay Animal Modelling class. She has enjoyed her classes over the last 3 weeks and was pretty proud of her penguin on a surf board with long blond hair like her.
There have been a few angry outbursts this week and even though it’s a common occurrence around here and we’ve talked about how it’s ok to be angry, frequent outbursts this afternoon led to a discussion on what is ok and not ok to do when we’re angry and ways to calm down. I suggested we write out a list of things we can do when we’re angry that will help us calm down and Chloe was eager to do that. I helped her spell out words but she worked fairly well with little complaints to make a list of seven items, seven being her favorite number.
When Kai came down while Chloe was completing her list, she immediately asked for her workbook to “practice her letters” just like Big Sis.
After Chloe completed her list, she went and bounced on the trampoline and sat for a three minute meditation! We went on to have a very calm and non chaotic supper, until I realized how late it was and that we had to get packed up for swimming!
Join me all October as I take part in the 31 Days of Learning Through Unschooling.
