Homeschooling tip




I haven't written much about homeschooling lately but today I want to share a homeschooling tip with you. Keep great books lying around. Instead of having all our books kept in their shelves, I've decided to put some good books on a small table we have in our living-room so that we can see them. And when we're sitting on our couch, we just pick one, I read aloud to DD, she asks questions, and it's not a formal thing. It works well with my daughter because she doesn't see it as an obligation. She just sees the books, gets curious and opens them.

That's a great tip, even if you don't homeschool (like me!). Thank you!
I like your new background! I also changed mine today!lol

Yes, it's a great tip. And I've been wanting to ask you for another: where do you get these gorgeous backgrounds?

Hi Ana,
For the background, just look at the top left of my blog and you'll see where I get them from. But I'm still learning and trying to do different things. Yesterday, I tried to do a new header with photos on it but with no success. First, I have to learn how to use Photoshop!!!

Great tip and I find myself doing the same, though I don't homeschool :)

It was so nice seeing all those great books in portuguese, I desperately need to get myself some.

Bjs,
