First Day Ever!! Went as Expected.... ? Advice??
Today was my first day homeschooling DD. She is in first grade this year.
The day went okay. She had her moments of tantrums. She has some ADD, and is an angel child, except for some occasional moments of outbursts. No violence, just some rolling on the floor, yelling kind of thing. My DH and I--neither of us were like that as children at all (neither are our other two children). So, any how, her first tantrum was with the calendar. She through a fit that the "exes" on the calendar days were not "perfect". I allowed her to calm down before we continued. Then, it was that the "a"'s she was writing for spelling were not "perfect". And lastly, she had trouble sounding out a few words.
Those were only the negatives though. She loved science, and art. She did well enough in math. Had fun playing outside.
Does anyone else have a more "difficult" child?
I know she has perfectionism issues. We've been talking her through them for 2 years. I thought I did well. I only ran out of patience at the very, very end of the day. I should have just stopped there for the day. I wish some of these things were more hands on for her, but reading and writing aren't very easy for hands on.
Any one else have experience, advice?
