The Home Ed Voices Podcast is a UK-based Home Education Podcast that profiles the lives of home ed families. You can find out more about the podcast here.
This week I’m talking to Kate McConaghy who now writes regularly for HomeEdVoices.co.uk (you can find all her articles here including great posts about curriculum shopping, embracing autumn for reluctant transitioners, and how home ed rituals are magic – especially useful in the winter.)
We talk about videogames and how they can be a gateway to literacy. How it all counts, not just the stuff that looks the most like school, and how you can structure your yearly plan to protect your mental health. Unfortunately, when we recorded this interview in the spring I had a bad throat and so sound really gravely, so sorry about that.
