School is in Session!
School is in session!We started our preschool co op this week and I think it will be tons of fun! In addition to the co op I am homeschooling Elly. In Math we are learning shapes, number recognition, counting and addition. Phonics is number one on the list, as well as letter recognition. We do crafts and add bits of history and science.
Oh what a learning curve this is for me, but I have been LEARNING soo much...about my children, myself, teaching techniques, learning styles. I have been angry, nice, stressed, calm, overzealous, controlling, relaxed and eager. It's been a humbling experience, a day by day, minute by minute lesson for ME!!
I personally have learned that I can not and should not control everything-I'm sure this will be an ongoing lesson to be learned. I also have learned that everyone learns differently-patience should be never ending, and getting angry deflects learning.
Prayer has become super important in this process, and when I am excited to learn so are the kids. So there you have it! And I am loving it!! I have felt a peace despite those discouraged outbursts I occasionally have, (which are completely useless and counteractive.). What a thrill it is to see Elly learn and progress, to be right by her side and beam with pride. I love my girls!! And life is good!! How is your school year going??
