Those of you who read my blog on a regular basis will know how much we love the Twinkl website and how often we use our membership. This week (6 to 10th February) Twinkl are launching their kindness week and are encouraging staff and children to carry out acts of kindness. (Yes yes I used the word staff as in school staff and yes I am a home-educator and my kids have never been to school before but Kindness is a universal concept that applies to everyone). And as part of their Kindness Week activities Twinkl are offering one of my readers a 12 month Platinum-Plus membership (the membership that gives you access to their entire site). All you need to do is comment either below this post or on the link for this post on our facebook page with an idea of how you can show a bit of extra kindness this week – even the smallest act of kindness – just greeting someone in the street, helping someone with a difficult task, maybe baking your some biscuits for someone or if you use public transport helping a mom carry her pram up some stairs (believe me I was always so thankful when someone helped me with this).
If you have never heard about the Twinkl website – It is massive – you can download Maths / English / Science / History / role-playing packs / colouring / book resources and lots more. It has been my number one resource for home-educating for the past 4 years. It can be used by teachers, home-educators, parents, anyone who wants high quality educational resources (and it does not matter if you are UK-based or not).
For those of you who have not seen any of their resources here are 5 examples of their resources.
Cone People – We Love them – this is their numbered footballer cone people.
We have used their pages in a number of fun learning aids – like making this compound word folder
They have brilliant History resources – like the cone people and timeline
And my daughter really does love their craft pages – I have lost count on how many times she has used these 3-D butterflies
Time to get baking (the kids and I are making biscuits for some elderly neighbours).
I will announce the winner at the end of the week.
The Giveaway has closed. Thanks to everyone who entered
