Happy New Year! I've been meaning to post for the last three days but life has been busy!
First, I was amazed and delighted when Sherry at Semicolon blog produced a personalised recommended reading list for me. Do pop over to her blog for so many reading lists. One of mine was a link to favourite read-alouds.
Debbie's blog, Our cup of Tea, is my go-to resource when working on country studies. She has started posting some more including Egypt, Iraq, Ghana and Israel.
I like to do hands-on maths with my younger children and the tools we use most often are Duplo blocks so I was delighted to see this post, from Frugal Fun for Boys, about using Legos to understand multiplication. This is definitely on our "to do" list.
On a sadder note, Se7en posted a thoughtful post about how to help someone who has lost a baby during pregnancy.
Last, a post which has been helpful for me recently is Amy's tutorial about Creating a fabulous Pinterest-Perfect Image using Picmonkey. I've still got loads to learn and need to go through this again but it is definitely a useful resource.
By the way, do pop over to my Pinterest boards. The Home Science, Five in a Row and Books boards are among my favourites.
