Educational bargains

Weld hello,

Today I thought I'd share with you something a little bit different.  As you know I like to be involved in my children's lives and we do all sorts of things together.  I also like to do educational things too, I thought I'd share with you some of the bargaineous educational places I go to get my supplies.

Firstly I use the library for books, each child has a card and you can borrow up to 15 books on each ticket. (I've never had that many at once as I can't carry them all home lol).  I read with my children at home and they read to me too.  They of course get to choose the books, this could be anything from fiction to a book on something they are learning about at school e.g. the Vikings or about another country.  The library is free to join and often holds holiday craft sessions at £1 per child for 2hrs, the kids love it.

I have found Maths, English, Science and French books in the £1 shop these retail at £5.99 each (in big retailers) and are by Letts.  We have used the English and Maths ones and found them really helpful.

I found the reusable (fill in with whiteboard pen) telling the time book (pictured below) ideal for Peaches and Pixie who are still learning to read a non digital clock.  This book cost me £1.99 in B and M bargains, Retail Price £7.99 in most big retailers.

I use the internet to find free colouring in pages based upon a theme (currently Easter) as we are learning about it in school and Church.

B and M bargains do a good selection of writing materials as well as drawing and craft supplies.

Anybody else know of good places to buy bargains for homeschooling?
