Tefillah

Now that Froggy is getting more capable with her reading in Hebrew, we are working on actually reading the tefillah during davening rather than reciting/singing from memory.  We are also working on learning the meaning of the prayers.  Right now, we are working the second paragraph of the Shema. 
 We are using the English for her copy work. Copywork is a major component of the Charlotte Mason style yet it seemed not to fit until now.  It was not meaningful and thus I would let it slide.  By combining Tefillah practice and copywork, I have made it important.  That does not mean fun though.  It is currently the most fraught item during our school time.  Reading the Hebrew and learning the prayers are great.  Unfortunately doing the printing is miserable
