As the weather takes us deeper into autumn and the leaves come tumbling down, I thought I’d start off this month’s Roundup with a look at some learning through play activities that can be done in the home.
I’ll kick off with this lovely post from Emma at Mummy Mummy Mum! that contains a plethora of ideas of things to do with sticks and leaves gathered in the autumn fall.
Rainy Day Mum has posted about a simple yet effective way of engaging a toddler with shapes and play dough, Toddler Explorations – Mark Making
Whilst over at the Imagination Tree they’ve been busy creating magical, sparkly moon dust for another fun-filled mark making exercise, great for use in early literacy alongside being a fab Montessori style sensory experience too.
And lastly on the learning at home front, a beautiful post on Learn With Play At Home about how to create floating art, an activity that cunningly combines art and science.
Mummy From The Heart has admitted on her blog that it hasn’t turned out to be as straight-forward as she thought for her twin five year old daughters to be split into separate classes at school for the first time.
Another mummy on posting on a pondering tip this month has been Jane at Mum’s The Word in her post about learning burnout for her four year old daughter, as she seems to not be able to get enough of learning!
Tania over at Special Needs Jungle has blogged that common sense prevails with more time to test the SEN Reforms proposals and an extension to Pathfinders agreed. There is a lot to be ironed out, but at least now there is more time for it to be done.
And finally, a little light-hearted something from Doodle Mum entitled School Dinners Are Nice.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this month’s Roundup. If reading these posts has got you set on writing an education related post, don’t forget to let me know about it once it’s gone live. You can drop me a line at motherwifeme at gmail.com or you can reach me on Twitter and I’ll try and include it in next month’s Round Up.
