Three “R’s”

Reading

It’s been a year since a state of emergency was declared here in BC – schools were closed for months, but classes did resume in September last year.  The Quimper Hittys actually enjoy  schoolwork, and though they prefer going to school, learning at home is good too!

Hornbook

Some of their home-learning tools are a bit old-fashioned…

.

.

Alphabet

…but they all learned to read…

.

.

Writing

…and write!

.

.

Autograph

When they have perfected their pen-doll-ship, they will write poems and mottoes into Arianell’s Autograph Album!

“Rithmatick”

Gracia took some time away from her shop to teach the girls some arithmetic…

.

.

Numbers!

…Tipsy took to calculation like a duck to water!

.

.

Navigation

 Then Gráinne taught them the basics of navigation…

.

.

Recess

…and they had a jolly time at recess in the slush!!

  1. Their school dresses are lovely, the teaching materials are eternal and low-tech (who needs a good internet connection?), and I’m glad to see they’re encouraged to take part in exciting field trips to put their new knowledge to practical use.

    • I agree that putting the knowledge to actual use is the very best way to make the information to stick! They learned about celestial navigation too, but I am a little reluctant to let them out to practice at night!

  2. My goodness the girls are well equipped with teaching tools. I did so enjoy seeing the wee hornbook! In fact I enjoyed every setting and scene.
