I have had mad love affairs with synchronicity at various times in my life - and every time is earmarked as indicating that I am indeed on the correct path...here's today's synchronicity for ya....we have been 'studying' the world, countries, continents, including putting stickers all over a big colourful world map, doing car quizzes on capital cities etc. It has been quite fun. I was thinking of a way of incorporating the flags of different countries into our learning, but couldn't get past the thought of 'colouring in' activities I had done at school....I knew the boys would try to humour me but lose interest after oh 2.5 seconds.
Anyway, the boys are watching 'Kung Fu Panda' and I was unpacking the shopping...ho hum...I walked out and here they are going through all the different language options which are illustrated by - you guessed it - the country's flags!
So, we are currently laughing our heads off listening to the famous 'Skidoosh!' scene in Russian/Swedish/German/Mandarin etc etc!! In 5 minutes of effortless fun they have memorised 12 flags of different countries and heard the language of each - thanks Po!!
It's the little things like this which make a home school mamma smile....
