A bargain in the works

Actually, that should be entitled "a bargain from The Works" as a rather nice package arrived today to help us in our home schooling.

I got what seems to be a really good deal on document wallets and square-cut folders for our lapbook projects - easily enough to last us until small moves on to notebooking.

I also got some A C Black science experiments books - a lot of schools use these, and there are plenty of good and quick experiments aimed at age groups 6-8, 8-10 and 10-12.  Alongside those, I also got a book aimed at littlies on magnet power.  As I think I've mentioned before, I've nothing against the national curriculum per se, just the way it's taught with a one-size fits all mentality.

The best bargain of the day though, has got to be the "Geography Today" series.  I'd seen these books on Amazon - they're primarily aimed at teachers - but even there, the books are about £23 each.  Much to my amazement, the whole series (from age 5-6 up to 10-11) was available on The Works' website (I've never seen them in the shops) at £1.99 per book.

I think that apart from actually buying the Galore Park history curriculum, which I mentioned in another post, that's us pretty well sorted as far as structured stuff is concerned all the way from age 5 right up to age 11.

We've been busy working on another lapbook, this time all about life on the farm, so I'll post some photos soon.
