Every now and then you have a day where school really isn’t what you need that day. That’s the nice thing about homeschooling. You can really tap into the days your kids will be like sponges so you can be ahead and use the off days for reading, playing or… well math I guess! Read the rest of this entry

Hiermee E- I se Werksblaaie en Kleimatte. Soos gewoonlik onthou dat die Werksblaaie te klein is vir kleuters wat eerder op die gelamineerde Kleimatte moet skryf met witbord merkers. Die Werksblaaie is geskik vir Graad 1 en op.

Soos belowe, hier volg die res van die Alfabet stadig maar seker. Laat my weet hoe werk die nuwe formaat, ek het meer gehou daarvan dat hierdie blaadjies lyne en stippellyne aandui vir die verskille tussen Hoofletters en kleinletters sodat alles van grondfase af reg aangeleer word.

Onthou, die skryfblaadjie is nie geskik vir kleuters wat pas leer om te skryf nie, daarvoor werk die kleimatte lekker en as dit gelamineer word kan hulle lekker daarop skryf met witbord Read the rest of this entry

Ek het uiteindelik die regte font gevind, hoera! Jammer om weer die werksblaaie te verander, maar die wat dit reeds uitgedruk het moet nie kommer nie, die voriges is steeds reg, daar was net toekomstige probleme met van die letters wat nou hersien is en vervang gaan word, maar die wat reeds gedoen is, is steeds 100% geldig.

Son is ‘n lekker maklike kort woord om S mee te behandel, maar ons het oulike slak boeke gekry by die biblioteek en het besluit om S vir Slak te doen.

Hiermee dus werksblaaie en Kleimatte vir slak en son, Geniet! Read the rest of this entry

Fun Morning Schedule for Primary School Kids

Fun Morning Schedule for Primary School Kids

Getting smaller kids ready for school in the morning can be a daunting task, especially if its something new to the mother and child. Here’s a fun way to keep schedule of what to do in just a few quick steps. These are all activities a small kid should be able to do by themselves. They simply finish the task and drop the flash card in the “Done” holder.

The chores are written down in one word for small kids so they can familiarise themselves with the words associated to the actions.

The activities I listed are:

  • Make bed
  • Feed the dog
  • Eat breakfast
  • Brush teeth
  • Get dressed
  • Brush hair
  • Grab lunch box
  • Grab backpack

Step 4:

Paste the rough part of the velcro at the back of each flash card using Clear Glue. You can keep both sides together but make sure you paste it in the middle of the card so that all the velcro will align neatly when pasted to the board.

Step 5:

Now put glue on the soft side of the velcro and align all the cards to once again make sure the velcro will be in line when the cards are removed.

Step 6:
