School life is really in full swing in our house. Mad dashes to get out the door on time, constantly checking we've got everything in her book bag, ironing uniform, polishing shoes, constantly refreshing Tapestry to see what she's up too (what a wonderful invention that is!) - its actually been really lovely. Mainly because she was so ready and I can see she benefiting from it greatly. Something we're really working hard on at home is her writing, being the one of the youngest I feel like anything extra we can do at home is only going to help her further and at this age, they love it!
Over on Pinterest, I have been scouring wonderful resources that we can use to help aid her learning and I thought I would share these with you in a series of blog posts. In this particular post, I will be sharing some amazing writing printables that you can use with your own little ones. Being a teacher myself, I want to get Darcie into the habit of doing "homework" and try to make it something we do as a family. In reality, it can be so difficult as life is just so busy, but we're trying to do a little every day. Even if it's just at breakfast or dinner, a little something to keep her ticking over.
So here are a few fabulous free printables that I have discovered over the last few weeks...
