Our letter “T” week brings us back in time some 500 years ago, when the Tudors ruled England. We borrowed the book, “Popcorn” series – History Corner: Tudors from the library to understand the Tudor family and life in that era. I’ve not learned much about British history and this was really a learning experience together with Hannah.
For our extension activity, we made a Tudor rose following the instructions given in the book. The Tudor rose was created when Henry VII brought an end to the ongoing battle between two royal groups – the House of Lancaster and the House of York. He joined the white rose of York with the red rose of Lancaster.

As a stay-at-home mom and homeschooler, I try to reduce our monthly bills and be prudent with our family expenses however I can. Despite the recent furore over its handling of three Children’s book titles, I’m very thankful that, here in Singapore, we have wonderful public libraries that are easily accessible and have a wide collection of books. The National Library Board (NLB) has 26 public libraries island wide, and each library is filled with thousands of children’s books.
The library has been a great source of help for homeschooling. We could find almost all the books we need for our curriculum. That amounts to a lot of savings for the family. What’s more, we could even get the Mandarin edition for some of the story books!
Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. ~William Arthur Ward
What are you thankful for today?
