Picture Book Preschool



Flora has reached the perfect age for Picture Book Preschool, my favorite collection of lists of picture books for five- to seven-year-olds (well, Jonathan still reads some of these books when I get them from the library).  I have used this book with all my children now and still discover new books each time (we have not read them all so far).  There are seven books for each week and each week has a certain topic.  Right now we are doing animal stories.  Over the years I have discovered that it is better to spread those books over two weeks and read the favorite ones several times.  Most of these books should be available in public libraries.

Here Flora is looking at the story Katy No-Pocket.
Hier schaut sich Flora die Geschichte Käte Kanguruh an.


Flora hat jetzt gerade das richtige Alter für ein Buch erreicht, welches sieben Büchervorschläge für jede Woche des Jahres enthält.  Jede Woche steht unter einem bestimmten Thema, diese Woche machen wir Tiergeschichten.  Ich habe diese Buch für alle meine Kinder benutzt, am besten sind die Bücher mit fünf- bis siebenjährigen Kindern zu lesen (obwohl Jonathan sie auch noch jetzt liest, wenn ich sie wieder aus der Bücherei mitbringe).  Ich lese diese Bücher meist über zwei Wochen verteilt, so hat man Zeit, die Lieblingsbücher des Liste oft zu wiederholen.  Fast alle der Bücher gibt es hier in den öffentlichen Büchereien.      

And here one more picture of a typical study chaos:  Jonathan and Charlotte are working on their 137 study questions for their botany test.  Most of the information is on Moodle (Power Point), but they also have a botany book.  Miriam is working on her Ancient India main lesson.  You can also see a started water color painting by Jonathan.  His art teacher is undergoing cancer treatment and cannot teach right now.  All her students are painting something and are having an exhibition soon.  They want to sell their paintings to help her pay for the cancer treatment.

Und jetzt noch ein Foto von einem typischen Lernchaos.  Jonathan und Charlotte arbeiten an ihren 137 Wiederholungsfragen für die Botanikabschlußklausur morgen.  Der meiste Stoff dafür ist im Computer (bei Moodle mit Power Point), doch haben sie auch ein Botanikbuch.  Miriam arbeitet an ihrer Altindienepoche.  Man kann auch ein Aquarellbild sehen, was Jonathan angefangen hat.  Seine Kunstlehrerin hat Krebs und kann im Moment nicht unterrichten.  Alle ihre Schüler malen jetzt Bilder, die sie bei einer Ausstellung verkaufen wollen.  Der Erlös soll der Lehrerin helfen, die Rechnungen für die Krebsbehandlung zu bezahlen.

  1. Hello Eva, the botany book looks beautiful, but how expensive! I'm always amazed at the price of textbooks. Are they enjoying reading it?

    The Picture Book Preschool looks very nice! I wish I had known about it when the girls were little :)

    It looks like a nice quiet school day at home! You must be enjoying it. Did it rain by you? I think that would have made it even nicer! I love rainy days when I don't have to go out.

    1. The book is quite interesting, but it is a college text, so under $100 these days is out of the question. We did buy an older edition, but the professor said that it would work also. That one was much cheaper. My German textbooks are about $150! Crazy, isn't it?

      Just keep "Picture Book Preschool" in mind for possible grandchildren :).

      It is nice to have some quiet, especially with Jonathan and Charlotte gone most of the day. It did not rain and is not supposed to.
