Aidan will be almost 5 by the time he is able to go to school and the more and more I thought about it the more it seemed that this was potentially a lot of time wasted when he would be ready for learning, and boy is he ready to start learning! He already knows and recognises his numbers up to 20 so I am now keen to start learning the Alphabet with him and then start basic reading.
Any kind of homeschooling is still quite unusual here in the UK so initially I really struggled finding good websites with ideas and materials I could use for him that were age suitable. A couple of my American friends were able to recommend some useful sites and after flicking through my new addiction "Pinterest" I have found tonnes and tonnes of fab ideas that will help me to making learning really fun :-)
I am going to start to share some of them here on my blog for 2 reasons 1) it might help someone else and 2) it will help me keep all the ideas together for when number 2 arrives!
