I think somebody is ready for pre-school…
I create a schooling activity with Sage for about an hour or so a day, hell, 10 minutes most of the time. It’s mostly sporadic throughout the day but consistent. We read the Sage the same book over and over for about a month. That was a tip from a schoolteacher. He recognizes sounds, knows A,S,Z (in that order) and knows his name when he sees it.
I am winging this basically. BUT he can say thank you, please, and covers his mouth when he coughs. #thatsmyboy I want him to be polite first as well as smart.
Please and thank you will take you a long way!
I feel a little less guilty when he pulls out his school books! My fiancé and I have mulled over the idea of homeschooling but I’m not sure if I’m quite organized enough. I read to Sage pretty much every night and I can see him picking up on certain pages and says what’s he’ll see next. I feel as though I am holding him back from learning and discovering new skills, life skills too.
Socially, I want him to come be aware of other people and their differences. But it’s a scary world. I don’t want to instill the fear I have for him, not only as my child but as a BLACK child. Most of the world doesn’t seem to care for or about them.
Now what the real deal is….. I don’t want NOBODY to mess with my kids. There are so many crazy things and people, it’s incomprehensible.
I just have to pray and ask for discernment. And a prayer of protection over them too.
I love watching him grow and learn and figure things out on his own. I’d like to think I helped in those decisions he’s making. *toot toot but I still take first priority in teaching him manners.
I love polite children.
I believe manners come with discipline so I’m getting a twoofer.
What convinced you to do homeschooling?
I would love to hear tips and suggestions!
thank you for reading.
please come again.
