I thought it about time I shared some links. Here are some websites and blogs I’ve been reading lately.
Shaping Little Souls has posted, teaching our children how to apologise. I have used these very same steps except there are some extra words in there that spark a lot of teaching opportunities – expand the ideas of an apology. Have a look at see – watch for these words: regret, responsibility, restitution, repent, requesting. Ha! Look at that they all start with R – I didn’t notice that before. That should make it easy to remember. I personally like the order to be different but I’ll post on that another day. I’m going to make a prompt chart using this during the week.
Helping our children deal with their emotions is a big issue for parents (sometimes we are still struggling with dealing with our own emotions.) I appreciated the options and tools that Megan offers at SimpleKids, 6 Peaceful Solutions for Hitting and Anger.
Last week I began (again) being a little more focused on living math – using everyday situations, using hands on manipulatives, using stories to teach math. I like my children to record their learning in some way and paste that into a scrapbook (large recycled blank pages, just right for gluing things in). Jimmie has another squidoo lens on Notebooking Math – very inspiring. I love her lenses. While we are at it, here is a link to her Bible Notebooking lens.
Answers in Genesis have some of their books online (some have been condensed to booklets). I particularly like 7C’s which is a curriculum I have used with my children but it was so intense. I like this simplified version for free here online (pdf).
