#100daysofhomeeducation is a picture based challenge so mainly to be found on instagram with crossover on facebook and twitter. I have to say, I’m loving having that daily picture to look back on to remind me of what we’ve got up to in the last month. (Given that I don’t blog our home ed lives […]

100 ways to home educate – launching a blog hop.

It’s Monday morning, and all over the country children aged from 3 or 4 upwards are heading to nursery, school, college, what have you. Education, after all, is compulsory.

On buying home education curriculum resources.

I’ve been quite proud that despite the fact we’ve got piles of curriculum style resources around the house, Smallest and Tigerboy have largely been unschooled so far. However, right at the moment I’m a little concerned with how screen focused they are both getting, and I want to do something about that. I also want […]

Contemplating home education styles, with a Teach My Preschooler kit review.

When you mention home education to people one of the first questions (usually right after ‘but how will they make friends?’) is how will they learn to read? Or do maths? The answer to that is all sorts of different ways, to be honest. Some children just seem to acquire reading in the same way […]

Netflix and science – Project Mc2 and Adrienne’s Volcano

Netflix has been a focal part of our family life here for some time now, with everyone in the family having a favourite viewing occupation. A fair bit of our family film night viewing is supplied via Netflix too. I hadn’t fully incorporated it in our home education though, even with discovering Magic Schoolbus is […]

Playing home education bingo.

Most of the time I’m happy to talk about home education. I love to chat about the different ways children learn to read. (Phonics. Picture books. Reading eggs. Montessori materials. Osmosis.) I can enthuse for hours about following interests, the value of playing online games, how great the world of nature is and so on. […]
