Homeschooling Progress

So we've been at our homeschooling preschool curriculum for 3 weeks now, and Hunter LOVES it. Whenever I ask him if he wants to do "school," his answer is always "YES!" He loves doing our calendar and weather board, and always LOVES singing the song of the week.

This past week, our theme was Farm, and I wanted to share a picture of one of our crafts we did. He was so proud of his work, and so we had to display them on the fridge. We made paper plate farm animals. He chose where all the pieces went, so it definitely looks like a toddler did it, and I LOVE it! :) I think they are so cute!
Twice a week, every week, we work on writing his name. Sometimes we get to writing it more than once, and other times, he's a little reluctant. But, since he's not even 3, I don't force him into anything. Anyway, this was written yesterday. We wrote his name the one time, and then he always likes to trace numbers. I wrote the numbers for him to trace, and dated the paper. I then walked over to the desk to pack something for the mail, and left him to trace. He called me over and told me he had written the date. If you look in the upper left hand corner, you can see that he copied just like I had written. This is the first time he has ever tried copying something and writing it by himself, as opposed to just tracing it. You can make out the 9, and the dashes, and then it's a lot of 0's and it finishes with a 10. I was SO proud of my baby boy. He is making progress even 3 weeks into it, and that is very rewarding for momma!

To finish off Farm week, our plan is to go on a field trip to a local petting zoo today. It's supposed to be about 90 though, so as long as we can handle the heat, we'll be going. And if so, I'll definitely be taking pictures!

  1. Hey Emma,
    I had to laugh because as you were updating your blog about school and your preschooler writing his name, I was too. Craziness. Super cute farm animals by the way, have fun at the petting zoo!
