This afternoon I sat down with Alexa to do a couple of workbook pages. Well....58 pages later she was done. The girl did the whole book!! I guess I need to hit the teachers store again. ; ) As a former teacher I taught over 10 years of Jr. Kindergarten. I try to find a balance of not pushing Alexa, but still making sure she is stimulated and always challenged. We try and make it fun by playing learning games, putting sight words around the house and doing simple addition in our every day activities, cooking, gardening etc... We originally had her at a traditional school the first four months of the year and her teacher actually had the &^%* to tell us that Alexa did not know how to hold a pencil or write her name ( she mastered both in her late 2's). Can you imagine?! Needless to say, this teacher did not know our daughter or care enough to find out so we pulled her immediately and now she is at a school that we love and she is enjoying. Maybe I should send this workbook to her old teacher with a "nice" note. ; )
Happy Valentine's Day!
