Home Schooling

 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!

  1. It all sounds good and am glad you've been able to get hold of a few websites. I think it's a good idea because if he is keen to learn then why not start early and increase his knowledge and satisfy his inquisitiveness.xx


Thank you so much for your comments, I love to read them :-)
