Since I watch Weston and Paisley 3 mornings a week, I decided to teach them all preschool. It helps me keep a little sanity to our morning, and it's been a great experience for them (and I) to do some learning! They work in a few different preschool/kindergarten age workbooks that focus on letters, numbers, colors, matching, rhyming, cutting, coloring, counting..... the list goes on and on! We've been trying to learn a new letter each week, how to write it, what it says, and be able to recognize it. (It's now March) and we've gotten through the whole alphabet! I'm proud to say that Weston and Addison know their whole alphabet, can write the majority of the letters pretty dang good, and know what most letters say. They are totally ready for kindergarten this fall! And to top that Brogan and Paisley know a TON of things a pre-preschooler wouldn't know!
Everyday we do the pledge of allegiance, days of the week, the weather, and review of colors, numbers or alphabet stuff.
Aside from all the "serious" learning we do, I've tried really hard to incorporate FUN and crafts into school. Here are some of our funnest days (when I remember to take pictures!)
Made Birthday Hats for Grandpa Funk's birthday party (we even made a whole bunch for the adults)
(Lately Little Cashie has wanted to join in on the school fun. he makes his way to "his spot" almost everyday!)
