Finding a decent educational toys online store can sometimes prove tricky. There are so many different options and finding one that actually delivers can be a nightmare.

I stumbled across DH Gate a few years ago when we started homeschooling and have ordered from them on a few occasions with no hassles and received good service from them.

I am a firm believer that education should be taught using practical and sensory methods. In my opinion, it helps to cement the new concept. I have noticed the kidlets use their hands to mimic the work we have done on certain topics, like times tables. I have always used manipulatives and sensory activities in our lessons and the kidlets have always found that by using these manipulatives or sensory methods has helped my kidlets quite a bit.

Here are some of my favourite finds for Mathematics, Science and Language Arts.

I finally found a laminator for a decent price *WOOHOO* I’ve decided that I’ll be getting the GBC CL90 A4 Laminator from Makro. Now I can finally laminate the flashcards and games I’ve made for Noo and preserve them for Koko and Fifi.

I’m a planner, or I try to be at least, and in saying so, I like to have lists and check lists for just about everything. With 3 children, I need to plan, or I’ll never get to everything. I think that’s probably why I love the workboxes so much.

I, once again, downloaded some lovely organisational lists and Tot School Assesment’s from Carissa’s 1+1+1=1 Tot School site.

Noo is almost finished with his Teach You Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons and we will then start on his curriculum readers. I’m hoping we will get through one a week at least. I also downloaded some new readers from Hubbard’s Cupboard for Noo’s free reading time. I’m going to bind these into a nice book for him. I want to nurture Noo’s love for reading.

PhotobucketI’ve been very busy the last few days creating new types of learning tools for Noo. I came across the “Word Wich” and modified it a tiny bit into a downloadable file available here. I downloaded the template from abcteach.

Because Teach You Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons hasn’t touched on the use of capital letters yet, I’ve decided to create a game using lower case and capital letters. I downloaded a set of each from Kizclub. I’ve cut the lower case letters out and he needs to put the letters on the correct capital letter. This will help him learn the names of the capital letters a fun way. I’ll make a most of this activity as soon as we use it.

PhotobucketI’m in the process of finalising our craft box, so I put a list together and I’m happy to announce that I have 90 % of the supplies that we need. I’ll be going shopping for the balance of the craft supplies we need tomorrow.

And somewhere between this, I’m arranging our wedding, which is going to be in just 15 days time. I’m finally going to marry the man of my dreams.
