So today i finally got around to making a "progress chart". its just a chart of all the things DS (5) learns and once he knows it he gets a sticker. like for numbers once he can identify 1-10 he gets a sticker, then 1-20, etc. i added DD (2.5) as well so she didnt feel left out. both my kids knew more than i thought! DS knew 1-30 (i thought he only knew up to 20), identified every letter, knew every color, knew all basic shapes plus a heart, star, pentagon and hexagon. he is also starting to recognize sight words!
dd could say her abc's, identify 1-10, knew her basic shapes, and all her colors! (she has never known her shapes before)
