So today was Maddie's first day of 1st grade homeschool. It went pretty well. She is having a hard time letting go of her kindergarten teacher's ways. She is making comments like "Mrs. Powers does it like this." I am just hoping that she will see that we will be way more relaxed than the teachers in her previous hoitey toitey private school. Besides that she was super excited to get started. She was up at the crack of dawn and very cooperative in our new morning routine. All I can hope for is that her excitement lasts!
The ladybug was pretty excited to get started too. Mind you she is only 2, she had to do school also! So she did, I gave her shape and color worksheets and she did a pretty good job. I also went ahead and started her on the first lesson of "The Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Your Child To Read". In fact I was going over the little sing-song poem about the letter A just before bed when she put her hand up and said" I'm tired of this". So I guess we will not be going over things at bedtime anymore.
