So we’ve managed to complete our first week of home education. All four children are still alive so that’s a plus. We’ve learned some Russian by watching a Russian children’s cartoon on YouTube. We learned a little about special offers and savings in Morrisons. We’ve glued, painted, been covered in glitter, and coloured. There’s been wordsearches and dot-to-dots. We’ve baked and cooked, followed instructions and done fractions. We’ve constructed cars and houses. There were sword fights with sticks and dotty paintings on plates. We’ve also had tears and wobbles as we try to adjust but after of all of this the children seem happier and giggle together. I hope our bond grows exponentially as we learn together.
So today we started a new adventure as a family. We are now home educating the children. We’ve talked about it over the years and now seemed like a good time. So far today we’ve learned a little Russian, done some biology, practiced reading, played Lego and done some maths in Morrison’s.
Tomorrow we are going to our 1st home ed group to meet others home ed children, do some cooking and some aboriginal inspired painting.
