Warming-up to school

Day 57 of #65daysofsummer

I love the changes throughout the year and the start of Autumn is certainly my favourite change of them all. There is something very special about the season for me that beats all the other three hands-down.

The Summer holidays are always greeted with open arms but for a variety of reasons after a while the children and I hanker for a bit of routine and the stimulus of being back in the throes of school and work life and all that it brings.

In my attempt to warm the children back up to school work we’ve been playing some educational games and these cards have been particularly helpful for Erin. The tiles from a Scrabble board, the money from Monopoly, a calculator or a measuring tape can all be used to make fun learning or revision games to get the cogs turning again without even realising it.
