Putting things in perspective

Whilst I was shopping this morning, the boys got on with some of their workbooks.

William sat down with Mum and worked his way through the new learning book I got him for his birthday. He whipped through the visual perception exercises - spot the difference, counting objects etc, which was very rewarding.

In the afternoon I caught up on some web bits, putting in some August resources on the site. As usual - if you have any good links/monthly resources, please let me have them.

I then set up another group (yep, another one!) which I am now going to promote shamelessly:

"To know and understand each other better" is the motivation behind the town twinning movement that started after the Second World War. The Home Ed Group Twinning Project aims to assist home schooling groups to do just that. Groups from around the world are encouraged to register, and to make a connection with another group. Groups can then build meaningful and rewarding relationships with each other, to the benefit of all the children involved.

"Education, in the broadest of truest sense, will make an individual seek to help all people, regardless of race, regardless of color, regardless of condition." George Washington Carver
Its success depends upon lots of groups registering - via a nominated contact point - so please, please take it back to your homeschooling group and pass the idea around.

Plug over!

I found a fantastic site today, courtesy of Planet Science's Newsletter - if you want to put life into perspective, have a look at this site.

Amazing, huh?!
