Sadly, Australians have not been taught that we have Christian heroes that have helped develop our country. It is something that is coming to the surface in these days, something that I want our family to become aware of. I was interested to find this page of links to inspiring stories. This will be added to our Australian History studies, next year.
I’m using Internet4Classrooms quiet often with Daniel now – for both Math and Language lessons. He is enjoying the computer based lessons (and they are free!)
This was interesting for the kids to see – The Brick Testament – the Bible illustrated by Lego.
This week I’ve started thinking about our plans for next year. December is busy with Christmas and we are going on a family holiday in January and I don’t want to be thinking about it then. I want to be ready to go when we come back in February. I start with a calendar – which I print from online – for free.
I check term dates for next year from the Education Department site (WA). I’m sure you can find a similar site if you want dates for your State.
