I like to say that I've been homeschooling since the day my son came home. This year, I wanted a little more structure to our homeschool. Well, we've been at it a week, and already my son is bored. Not with learning, but he wants to go FASTER! I thought it would be great to review the ABCs and such, and he wants no part of it. After 3 days on A, he was asking "for B already". LOL.
He's 3.5 years, and he is already reading. And he's writing. His name, my name, and about 20 words on his own. Then he'll ask me how to spell the rest. (Today he wrote a song in my notebook while we were grocery shopping). So I get it, review is good, but he's ready for more. Which is find, I wrote my lesson plans in pencil!!
We are a child-led family, so since he seems to be really interested in arts and crafts, I know I'll be adding a lot more of that into our week. I just never thought he would be leading me so fast!
Any suggestions on some fun things to add to our days?
I should add that he can count to 40, do simple addition, draws circles, squares, triangles, rectangles, and stars. Knows those shapes plus oval, sphere, cube, and octogon (and I'm sure more I can't remember). Knows blue, red, green, purple, pink, black, white, gold, silver, chrome, orange, yellow, and all the colors in the crayon box (since he can read the colors). I'm thinking we should be moving on to kindergarten level work, but I have no idea where to start! Thanks in advance for any and all advice.
