Today’s One Small Thing – record your family’s words.
Author: Katie Hanrott
As you probably know, during the pandemic Amazon has made a number of their audiobooks for kids available to stream for free as Audible Stories.
My 11 year old, who is an avid reader and audio book fan, tells you about the books he’s been enjoying…
The dreaded ‘I guess things aren’t that different for you’ comments have been getting me down. Time to think about them another way.
If the thought of a full routine makes you want to hide under the duvet, then maybe just hang something small on to each day, so you and your children know where you are in the week. And why parenting through this pandemic looks like nothing from the outside, but is anything but.
Lovely people we need your help! The pandemic has thrown a lot of things into the air, and we really want to continue writing and recording things that are useful to you.
This is episode 28 and this week I’m talking to Lorna from @2devonpixies_home_ed. We talked on the 17th March, as lockdown for the coronavirus was just starting, but before the school’s had closed, so that colours the whole conversation. However we also talk about tuff trays, the pedagogy of ‘give it a go’ and Lorna brings a fantastic book list that will keep you going through these strange days.
Do you want an easy to find, British book that will inspire your home education and give you tons of ideas of things to explore alongside your children?
Good Ideas by Michael Rosen might just be the book for you.
