Homeschool Meme (Tagged)

Homeschool Meme (Tagged)
Breeze tagged me.

1) ONE HOMESCHOOLING BOOK YOU HAVE ENJOYED
Well, there are quite a few that we have enjoyed over the last year. Sam loved Trial and Triumph, (stories from Church history with all sorts of gory tales about martyrs, which really made him think about how different things used to be for Christians), we all loved Story of the World Volume 1, and are looking forward to the next few volumes. I thought Minn of the Mississippi and other books by the same author were enchanting.

2) ONE RESOURCE YOU WOULDN’T BE WITHOUT
The internet. No doubt about it. To answer all the questions that I don't know the answers to - why does it rain? what do wasps do to help with nature? who discovered the tomb of tutankhamun? Can I print out all the flags of the world and colour them in? Can I learn to write hieroglyphics? Can I learn how to write my name in Japanese?

3) ONE RESOURCE YOU WISH YOU HAD NEVER BOUGHT
The Story of Mankind. We wasted almost a year trying to read it, and even I didn't understand what it was talking about.

4) ONE RESOURCE YOU ENJOYED LAST YEAR
The Ulster Museum in Belfast. Firstly it's free, secondly it has a mummy, and thirdly all 3 kids got something from our regular visits.

5) ONE RESOURCE YOU WILL BE USING NEXT YEAR
Singapore maths series.

6) ONE RESOURCE YOU WOULD LIKE TO BUY

7) ONE RESOURCE YOU WISH EXISTED

8) ONE HOMESCHOOLING CATALOGUE YOU ENJOY READING
I have never read one of these.

9) ONE HOMESCHOOLING WEBSITE YOU USE REGULARLY
www.amblesideonline.org and www.enchantedlearning.com

If they read your blog regularly they will see this, if not just put a 'you've been tagged, see my blog for details' comment on their blog.

So, how does it feel to have done your first tag, lol?

I've seen it so you don't need to tell me ;-)

Will do it when I have two hands free.

If you've still got Story of Mankind, I'd love to borrow it.

Oh, and did you know the Ulster Museum is closing for two-and-a-half years? :-(
