I love being open to all different types of parenting methods that are going to be presented to myself and my partner in the next couple of years. So when I heard about Mrs Mactivity’s home education software I was intrigued to find out more.
I was home tutored for a year of my life, this wasn’t down to choice but due to medical conditions that didn’t allow me to attend school. I was diagnosed with a blood disorder that meant any knock, scrape or bruise could result in me bleeding and not clotting. In other words – school was too dangerous for me to attend. So I had a wonderful home tutor who allowed me to continue my studies in the comfort of my own home.
My parents were lucky enough to find a reasonably priced tutor in our local area to support me, so this meant there wasn’t a major panic regarding finances. Personal tutors can be expensive and they can set your bank balance back a bit. There is one or two worksheets online but nothing that enables you to stick to the curriculum suitable for your child’s age and learning abilities. That’s why finding an affordable supportive system like Mrs Mactivity is so crucial to some families.
So what is Mrs Mactivity and can it help you with home education?
Mrs Mactivity is run by Mary who is an ex teacher and has plenty of experience in teaching young children on a curriculum level. The subscription is currently free, but there will be a small fee of just under £10 a year once it is properly launched.
There are loads of different worksheets and colouring sheets which are hand drawn by designer Polly Love. These are all printable and tried and tested by Mary’s own children before they are uploaded for a bigger audience.
The worksheets are updated once a week, so materials are kept up-to-date and fresh. This enables them to be themed around specific seasonal holidays or awareness days that may be taking place for children. Some of the most recent primary learning resources that have been uploaded include: Mother’s Day in the USA, Spring and Unicorns. All things that children can learn and develop their skills on.
A years membership costs just £9.97 including VAT. This membership deal includes:
