TR requested more challenging school work. She says her preschool/play school is too easy. I don't know who told her school can be hard. Maybe her kindergarten interview tipped her off.
We're in March so I won't attempt to switch schools. Mr A and I went to Lakeshoreand purchased reading, printing, writing and arithmetic teachingsupplies.
We started our lessons on Friday and so far, so great. TR is serious about wanting to learn and Mr A and I are excited to teach. TR's attention span is lengthy so I don't have to do transition every 1/2 hour. I have to convince her to switch to a new subject. QT likes the math because he can play with the manipulatives. He doesn't seem to want to do a formal school right now.
I was given a lesson plan book, which I intend to use and design an orderly program. Hopefully we will get accepted into the school we want, but if we don't I think I can create an amazing home school situation. I already have plans to do excursions to museums, science centers, art classes and other enrichment. I will do my best to blog about our experiences as parent-educators. I think TR really enjoyed her first day. When we got to her play school, she told her teacher about the math she did that morning and TR seemed a lot more satisfied at school then I normally notice.
