Homelearning made fun with Learning Resources #competition

Homelearning made fun with Learning Resources #competition

We are big fans of Learning Resources in the Constant household, they have some incredible resources that are fun, engaging and aid education. The perfect concoction for homelearning and lockdown. So, we teamed up with them to give one of my lucky readers a prize bundle of goodies to help get through these uncertain times. *Competition window at the bottom of this post. VIEW the POST

Creating a homelearning egg hunt around your home with #Haribo

Creating a homelearning egg hunt around your home with #Haribo

Whilst we are still in the Easter holidays, I thought I would share a fun idea to keep the children entertained (and the grown-ups for setting it up). This is a homelearning egg hunt, the prizes could be anything from a bag of sweets to tokens towards something else. Like earning so many minutes of tablet time that day. My kids love earning things.  VIEW the POST

Brightening up our learning with homeschooling stationery

Yes, I have a small obsession with stationery and so I thought it was only right to brighten up the kiddies homeschooling by getting them some new bits and pieces. When you have vibrant and fun new things around you, it helps to motivate you. I find that anyway. Here are my favourite Paperchase items to add some fun for after the Easter holidays, it’s a back to school haul if you will.

Our family homeschooling routine

Our family homeschooling routine

Well, I never thought we would be in a position like this at the start of the year. We have all had to adapt and be flexible in this new world of lockdown. We are now into week 2 of lockdown and the kiddies be off school, this is our homeschooling routine at the moment. I am sure this will change as the weeks go on. VIEW the POST

Day 1 of homeschooling complete

Day 1 of homeschooling complete

It might sound crazy to celebrate Day 1 of homeschooling, it is important to me to give ourselves a pat on the back though. Yesterday was the first day I had to do the combined homeschooling and working from home thing. It was lots of fun and stressful, all in one. But I think the stress was only due to the pressure I put upon myself. VIEW the POST

Useful online resources for children whilst homeschooling

UPDATED 31 March 2020: I have found some incredible online resources from various sources and a lot of Googling last night. Perfect to keep your little ones entertained whilst homeschooling and working from home. We are going to try and keep the kiddies in their school routine as much as possible, just with different activities. We also have to juggle working from home, so some of these resources may mean that whilst they are concentrating on something for an hour, I get an extra hour of work done. Anything is going to help over the foreseeable. I am still in shock I think, I haven’t cried yet, although I have felt it a few times.
