Calendar Board...

The crafting time that has been found this week was devoted to finishing a calendar board for Quarter-Acre Academy :) We are now using it each school morning after our opening (which is a few songs, prayer, reciting the books of the Bible, and our school verse [Rom. 12:2])...
Liz also has a daily sheet to work on that goes with our board... I saw a bunch on different sites, but none were exactly right, so I made my own!

Liz has to fill in the sections using the calendar board... once she fills in the number for the day, I help her count (by 5's) the boxes for her to filling in. I am also still helping her learn the 5's for tally marks...then we use the boxes to help us do the BIG addition problem! 

While I was deciding where to put our calendar board in our school area (aka. the dining room) I decided that since I was moving things around and it was almost mid-August, I would get the fall decorations for the dining room out and redecorate at the same time!

So here is now how the table and dresser look... (all our board games and some of my recipe books are in the tall cabinet)
I use the table lamp more for when I'm just working here...during school we usually use the overhead light.
The school books and tools are neatly arranged and looking ready for Autumn :)

...whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
