Our Homeschooling resources!

Here is a little insight into our homeschooling life!

I use a variety of resources to keep the kids interested. These are what we are using at the moment. 

For Maths we use
Lucas is very maths focused so he likes this site particulary. I also have used maths cd roms in the past, workbooks and study guides from newsagents, & education bookshops.
They both cook, Lucas likes measuring, building, designing things with lego and his nxt robot.
* There are lots of maths games online. When Mollie was learning her times tables she played

Kids like this website, they also have naplan workbooks. They always have a story writing project on the go and usually a science type project.
Also we have a few books from
They are very good.
We go to the library alot and the kids loves audiobooks. The usually listen to audiobooks while playing in their rooms.

We play alot of games, including ones I have made. 

* as well as maths, Lucas LOVES science - physics, chemistry. 
We highly recommend the book series Basher Science from Book Depository. They are easy for the kids to read and understand. Lucas is loving the physics and periodic table ones at the moment. 
Mollie loves her Rocks and Minerals book.

There are alot of fun websites out there now, and also apps.
We also watch documentarys together, history timelines, nature walks, drawing together, Lucas build things with Dave, vegy gardening.
As well as their sports.

I tend to give things a break for a few weeks and find something else for them if they are getting a little bored or uninspired.
