Taking a Blog Break 18/10/2010

I am taking a break from this blog cos I have been wondering to myself whether I am doing stuff with the boys because I think they will enjoy/learn from it or because it will make great pics for this blog :-s

Wonder if other home ed bloggers agonise over this, or is it just my overactive guilt complex?

So, what have we been up to at the Snooze Academy?

Gman’s main learning experience has been with the creation of his own blog.  He has learned about posting, adding hyperlinks, inserting videos and has written quite an extensive review of one of the Lego kits he received for his birthday, which you can read here.  He has also created a poll asking a Very Important Question:  Which Star Wars film is best?  You can place your vote here.  He is currently planning a review of another Lego kit, so pop back in  a couple of days and read all about the “The Battle of Endor”.

The boys got several new board games and puzzles for their birthdays, including two Lego games, a Brainbox All Around the World, and Square Up!, which they can be seen enjoying below:

Their interest in Mathletics has waned a bit but this has seen them go back to using Education City a bit more, and Waif is particularly keen on a phonics game on the CBeebies website.

Well, I gave Blogger a try…but I prefer WordPress so here I am with my blog posts safely imported from Blogger.  I like the fact that I can put my pictures where I want them, I can see who is visiting the blog from where and I just generally find it much easier to use.  Only thing is, I don’t know how to get buttons down the sidebar – can anyone help with that?

New home ed blog 29/09/2009

Have decided to start this blog as a place to record the things we have done, the stuff we have made and the cakes we have baked…home education, home baking and a bit of crafty stuff I guess.

Today has been one of those perfect home ed days where I feel that “YES! This is home ed!” We did an experiment this morning that worked (always a good start!), the boys have been getting along with each other and we had a fabulous bike ride this afternoon – 5 or 6 miles out of town along the river – a very different perspective on parts of the town.

We had our first LA visit last week and Gman certainly wowed them with his amazing collection of achievements – I felt quite ashamed that I hadn’t really realised just how much he had achieved over the year!! And he certainly enjoyed the opportunity to show off his work to someone outside of the family I think. Maybe need to make sure this happens more often (not LA visit, just the chance to show off!)

So will be unashamedly using this blog to show off some of the stuff we make and do on our home ed adventure – experiments, outings, plants we’ve grown, crafty stuff and of course, cakes :-) Here’s some visual tasters:
