Homeschooling swimming - We will swim 1-2 times a week. Evenings work best for us and we will go when we go. The Sutka pool is really nice so this will be our regular pool. Homeschooling families are welcome to join - hopefully there will be some time to hang out but i think  we will mostly be chasing our kids. :) at 7. Sutka has easy parking and there are buses going there too from Kobylisy. It is clean, with a very good area for small kids, river, slides for kids and a bit scarier slides for the adults too! The vystaviste pool is good for learning to swim, it just has a simple lap pool, this one is good if someone wants to have a swimming circle with us for learning to swim during the day time we can do that too.


What we did last week

I dont have many photos from the week unfortunately..been to busy! We have met new homeschooling families this week which has been really nice. We had a nerf war in Letna, we have done all the activities that I posted except thursday. We went swimming in Sutka instead and in another place. Im sure ive missed something..anyways. xmas times are coming up. We will plan a swedish christmas craft and baking event probably on the following friday.

What we did last week

Somehow it always ends with minecraft these days.. The football is now indoors in nebusice. Last week was very busy - we have done things everyday. This coming week will be a bit more quiet to balance it. We started taking private classes the whole day on Tuesdays for the czech language and math. I can really recommend it and its affordable too. If you want the details for the teachers I can forward them. For the next season (if we are here) we can create a math class for homeschoolers if there is enough interest.

Trial arts and animation class

I have in cooperation with Luis Cerdas, a professional artist from Costa Rica that has worked with teaching children there, arranged a trial for an arts class on next Monday (14th) at 1030 in  A Maze in Tchaiovna near Hradcanska. It is easy to find - see the map on the link.

This is a wonderful opportunity to take part of an arts class especially designed for us unschooling families in Prague. The teacher is sort of unschooled himself so he understands what our kids are about and will put together a special programme for those that will join. The classes will be in blocks of 4 weeks. It is a family class - which means - be part of it! The cost will depend on how many that join, however it will be within a homeschoolers normal budget.

The central idea is to stimulate imagination and see what the collective interests are. We will work a lot with colours and with our surroundings (for instance we will not always be inside, we can also work with materials like leafs that we find in the park also. We will work with animation also, and make small figures in different materials. If we are many, classes will be held in the arts studio, and there will be access to a ceramic burner too.

Classes will be taught in english (also czech and spanish if your kids speak that). Its not suitable for under 4. I will need to know in advance - latest on saturday - which ones of you will be coming - so please let me know asap. You sign up by writing an email to us on the blog or on our facebook page (please let us know your email adress)

Here is an inspirational video by Luis - please watch it (starts about 30 seconds in)

Sign up for a family yoga trial lesson

I have in cooperation with Lovely joga arranged for a free trial for family yoga on wednesday 16th at 1015 (dont be late - you need 15 mins to wind down when you get there!).

This is a wonderful opportunity to take part of family yoga that is especially designed for worldschoolers. Its suitable from 3 and up. My husband went last week with our 4 year old and has left a positive review (which is good because he is not the yoga type at all).

We have about 5 families that signed up so far. We would have space for one or two more for the trial if you want to come - then I need to know latest tomorrow.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here is some info from Lovely Joga:

I hope that you and your boys are both healthy and happy, its yet another very cold day in Prague but at least that sun is shining 😊

I am writing to you as promised about the Family Yoga class that will be starting next week. I am going to go through all the details to confirm and even re confrim things 😊thats how I roll!

Family Yoga- Wednesday 16th November- Start/ Finish time 10:30- 11:30 (please arrive at least 15mins earlier, I will be at the studio from 10)
Location- JOGA LETNA-  Dobrovského 666/20, 170 00 Praha 7-Holešovice 
http://www.jogaletna.cz/
Feel free to change clothes (lockers at the studio are provided)
Mats and other equipment are provided by me/ and the studio 😊

After some thought about the price for the class I decided that I wanted to offer some fair discount, in an effort to support Home Schooling 😊 Usually my classes are 190 per child per hour- therefore I have done some clever maths and decided that it makes more sense to ask for the following-

One Child/ One Adult- 300 czk (with any additional child and/or adult its 50czk) per class.
(Children under 2 come for free) ♥ But I need to be informed if a baby is joining us so that I can prepare a safe space. ♥

I hope that everything reads clear for you. And please can you email me the contacts of all the families that have confirmed so that I can send them a welcome email. 😊

If you have any questions please ask- And I will write to Helenka from Joga Letna today to book the space for next Wednesday (and for the 4 weeks that follow) 😊

I am looking forward.
Mely
