April Inspiration

Yesterday was Easter Sunday. 
Why seek ye the living among the dead? 
Luke 24v5
Today was warm and felt like Spring. I've planted some vegetables although whether they germinate remains to be seen! 

As always, I have a large pile of books to read and a home that is littered with books. As a home educator, I would like my children to love reading too. Recently, I came across this post about establishing a reading culture in the home. 

If you have a child who is learning to read and finds sitting still challenging, then this post about Hands-On Activities for Beginning readers is for you.

 Marianne Sutherland has produced another must read article about Best Spelling apps for Children with Dyslexia. 

I can't quite bring myself to do this activity, yet, as it involves play dough made out of sugar but do take a look at these circuits made out of play dough. Does anyone else find the thought of stickly play dough made from sugar rather off putting?

While we were away recently, we discovered some lovely colouring postcards from Johanna Bashford. They are sold as adult colouring books but we have found them ideal for children who love colouring. The gallery features inspirational colouring.

Last, I've recently found a new UK Christian home educator's blog: An Island Family by Grace. This comes from a family who have just moved to a Scottish island. Posts include frugal living, home education in Scotland and moving.
