Getting Back On Track

February was not the best for various reasons, so I'm pleased we are well into March and looking forward to Spring.

The garden is coming to life with all its spring bulbs and frog spawn in the pond and my thoughts are turning toward the vegetable garden and how behind i am already!

Education wise we seem to have found a comfortable rhythm to our days once again after the hiccup of February when things were all over the place. It made me realise that even though we don't follow a strict timetable we do need a guideline to follow or things tend to fall apart. It is also important for me to make sure i have books and websites at my fingertips and things printed ready for the week ahead. I had gotten out of the habit of doing this and it was wasting a lot of time. So to aid me I'm in the process of creating a few google pages to keep our "curriculum" all in one place. So if any of you grandparents/uncles/aunts want to keep track of what we are up to, take a peek. Or anyone else for that matter, hopefully this may be of use to other HEers. I love seeing what other families are up to and have found lots of useful books that way. One of my favourites at the moment is La Paz Home Learning.

Isaac has really got into his Montessori activities now so i'll leave you with a few pics.

Glad to see you back, was getting a tad worried.

Love the curriculum idea, I must do something similar :-)

I have set up a new blog though about my home school days, to run in conjunction with the resources one.

Plus Structured Home Education have set up a forumn to have better links etc, find it here

Like the "curriculum" idea too - I've never heard of Google pages before - must check that out.
