Home School Daze

We have been homeschooling for almost a month now and it is still going great. We do have days where my son does not stay on task and he is unfocused, but he is 4 what would you expect? Anyway, I have been trying to come up with some fun and exciting learning activities to give him a rest from so much "book work". Today, we mixed primary colors of paint and made orange and green. We also were discussing how liquids can become solids today and we made Jello. On yesterday, we practiced our letter of the week by making the letter with our finger in a plate of whipped cream and then I allowed him to eat a little of it.

My son is still continuing to learn so much and he really enjoys school. I am just trying to find more ways to keep him interested and excited.

Today, I was overjoyed! My son has been learning to write since we began school. Today, he asked me how to spell "daddy" and he wrote it all by himself (and very well, might I add). I was a proud mommy! It still amazes me how much material we cover and what he picks up in such a small period of time. I really love this!
