I don't really get a lot of time to blog anymore but given that I'm going to be at home for quite a while, I have decided to open a new blog page up on the site. Starting with something a little off-topic.
I posted this out on the insta stories yesterday and a few people came back to me to say that they would find it useful so I've uploaded it here for you.
For those who don't know us - we are a family of three and the mini one in the centre is Isla, she is 5 and in reception. We haven't had much of anything in the way of activities to keep her busy from her school yet and with mine and hubby's jobs still very much happening from home, I needed to create some structure so that none of us are missing out on any of the time we should be spending working and learning.
After a week of letting us all get our heads around working differently for a few weeks or months, I finally felt ready yesterday to get a proper plan in place to make this work.
A lot of the things I chose are things that Isla can do independently, but I have made sure to do a few things every day with her that mean she's getting some guided learning too. Disclaimer - I'm no teacher, just a mommy who doesn't want her baby (or myself!) to stop learning during this. As you will see, creativity and getting outside are things I care a lot about so they are in there every day in ours.
Today I'm planning next weeks "lessons" and if anyone would like me to share my pinterest boards, worksheets or activities I'm more than happy to.
I also want to say - if you're not planning to "school" your kids over the coming months - THAT'S ABSOLUTELY FINE! We all have to do whatever works for us in times like these and I don't want anyone to interpret this as a "this is how it should be done" kind of post. It genuinely isn't. This is just the way I feel like I can get us through this giving me time to work on the businesses and giving her the chance to carry on enjoying her learning.
Downloads in the links below, I have done blank ones for boys, girls and groups and I've also included the filled in one of Isla's if it helps.
Take care guys xx
