As my daughter is about to turn three, and I have decided that I am going to home educate her. I am starting this blog for a few reasons, I want to keep a record of what we are learning and the activities we are doing, I want to be able to show anyone who asks what we have been up to and I want to be able to keep a track on progress etc..I also want to maybe inspire other Home Educators with some ideas as I steal enough ideas from them!
Today we talked about the weather, it was a rainy day so we had a duvet on the sofa and we then read the books in the series below. ‘Snow’ was her favourite, she was very engaged when we talked about a doormouse and how it hibernates. We then watched some children’s learning videos about the weather on YouTube. We touched on talking about the seasons, today we mainly talked about Winter.
I am also loving the ‘Big Book of Things to Do’ given to me by my step mum who also home educates my Brother.
Being inspired by the Big Book of Things to Do, we made crowns which led on to making rings and bracelets and then we decorated a box which we filled with ‘treasure’. I was also made to wear a crown, which I have just realised, I am still wearing whilst typing this post. These are some of the bits we did together.
