Hello I'm Leila. Mother to Alexia 12, Dwayne 6, Torrence 4 and nearly 8 months pregnant with Noelle, due Jan 9th but csection scheduled for Jan 7th. I am new to homeschooling, doing it for my 4 year old. He was attending preschool August-September but the teachers recommended we have him evaluated as his level was advanced kindergarten to 1st grade. They couldn't challenge him enough. Afraid he would learn the bad habit of feeling indifferent about school in the future and to make sure he stays challenged, we decided I should homeschool him until he can register for kindergarten. He may be skipped or maybe I will have to continue homeschooling, lol. I'm thankful I found this group, as I am totally new to this. I made my own lesson plan, which just covers the penmanship of the abc's and numbers. I also teach him manners and chores, community members and their jobs, we have a time for gym activities and art. I still feel completely lost though.
