Geography

Geography: Ravensburger 3D puzzle of the world.

We have been building a 3D puzzle of the world as part of learning Geography. What a brilliant way to build motor skills and also learn about the world. Talk about the countries, continents, weather science etc just building this model jigsaw is stimulating such conversations of interest.

The Ravensburger 3D puzzle is helping with learning the difference between north and south poles, including where penguins live and all the other wonder whys.

Today I watched him playing with the jigsaw puzzle and yes it was lovely to seem him engrossed in play, chattering with enthusiasm as he built his model. I guess this is what is meant by learning through play.

home education

It has been a while since I posted. Where have we been ? We have been doing our home education.

I am posting today just to touch base and say Hi to all who may read this.

Our home education is running smoothly and happily along. Our little tiger is the most happy child and still says every day how much he enjoys education at home.

What have we been doing?

We have been enjoying each day, whatever the weather may bring us.

Home education is not for everyone or would not fit every persons life style choice. However, it is what is working for us and our family at the moment. It is the right choice for us.
