Hey all, I'm Cierra. I'm not really a homeschooler but I'd love some tips from you all! My oldest daughter will be 4 next month. Due to our states cut-off date of Sept. 1st she is not able to attended the lottery funded pre-k program. This means she also wouldn't be able to start kindergarten until almost 6! That is, unless she can test in as an almost 5 year old next year.
My question is, what are some ways I could go about teached her her numbers? Reading? and other things they teach in pre-k? She can count to 13, but doesn't know which number it is if it's written down. She knows her ABC's and can tell me what letter I am pointing too. She can also write a few letters on her own and identify them. I hae a hard time keeping her motivated, which I am sure has to do with the fact that I am just her mom. Any advice? Also, how/what can I start working on with my 18 month old? She already knows and can sayy all of her body parts. She has a pretty big vocabulary for her age.
