To make it easier on myself and cheaper I have decided to teach the kids to write in French script.  Although I must admit at this point that it’s not just for cost effectiveness, I also believe that it is a beautiful script without being too labour intensive!  At least this way I know that I can always make my own handwriting worksheets for FREE, all I have to do is open up Microsoft Word and start typing! 

 
After listening to all the advice from various groups on teaching handwriting, I have also decided that teaching F (3yo) French script from the beginning is probably the way to go.  SO in the following months I will be adding any French Script handwriting worksheets I create to the Little school section of this website.
 
 
I have found a great new (to me) website for teaching PE.  The site covers many different areas of PE and after Christmas I will be using the information from the site to teach human anatomy.   Here is a link to the site for all those who want to check it out;

http://www.teachpe.com/anatomy

Also for those who decide to use the site I have altered some of the diagrams from the site for use in the testing of the knowledge gained from the site.  These files can be found under unit studies download.
 
 
I have decided to add a little school downloads page so I can add all the files I create for my 3 ½ year old. This way I can keep them all together and easily accessible.
 
 
Ok so we have officially moved (I now shudder at the idea of having to move anytime soon) the house has boxes stacked in every nook and cranny, and I finally have our internet back up and running! Just over a week without internet has almost killed our family LOL, I hadn’t realises just how reliant we had become on having access to the net. Right now I have a billion things I SHOULD be doing, but honestly if I have to look at another box to unpack today I think my head would explode! This house is much smaller than our previous place (why is it you don’t truly comprehend these things until AFTER all your stuff is moved in?), but thankfully we have a room specifically for schooling. I will have to post some pictures once the boxes are no longer cluttering the area.

My sister now has until March next year off from her course and has graciously offered to teach the kids Equine studies during her time off. All three of the kids are looking forward to that one, although I believe it has more to do with the riding than the rest of what she has planned to teach them J

Well all I can say is it looks like academically things are shaping up quite well for next years studies!



Blessed Be, live life to the fullest and never take one moment for granted!

 
 
We were thinking about starting to move some stuff into the new house tonight, now it might have to wait a day or two. Currently being in the middle of a drought I didn’t think there would be any problems getting the jump on moving, well wouldn’t you know it we woke up this morning and it was raining! While I love the rain and we REALLY need it, I’m glad that the weekend is forecast to be fine weather. Just hope that once we are settled that the rain decides to bless us with its presence once again.
