I'm Going to Drop Her Off at Preschool

And preschool is actually in the school room.

Millicent really is going to start preschool though. We are all super excited.

As far as homeschooling goes, we are pretty low key. We understand that children learn at their own pace. What your 11 year old knows, mine may not. And the math that my 11 year old loves, may be too technical for yours. Whatever.

We aren't trying to teach her to read according to any time table, though if she learns, great. No, we are just trying to have school with her.

To that end, each week she will have a letter of the week, number and shape. During her time with both Ashlea and Kori, they will also do school with her.

I'm just really excited.

I found these websites for activities to go along with our letter:

Toddler Activities

Preschool

Bembos Zoo

GO TO BEMBO'S ZOO. It is so fun. We do it all the time here. Millicent loves, loves, loves it. And oddly enough, so do Kati and Kori.

thanks for the links. I've got a 3 1/2 year old son that I'm casually pre-home-schooling. I'll be a little more organized about it next year (probably).

When they learn at their own pace they end up loving to learn and eating up every bit of information they can get! My youngest one didn't really read until 8 or 9 and he's 10 now. He can tell you about any war that ever happened and can build anything! It's great to be a relaxed homeschooler!

I love relaxed homeschooling. It's worked really well for my two boys. Way to go, starting your kids off right. :)
