I admit it…my biggest fear about homeschool this year was teaching my little guy to read.
But, that fear…it is dissipating.
Why was I afraid?
My first two children were taught in Public school….ok..my first one was, my second is struggling because…well, she wasn’t taught and now, we’re still working through that…but, she has come a LONG way.
So this year, I began with my jaw a little tight. You know what I’m talking about….going into something thinking…OH BOY….this is going to be
LIKE PULLING TEETH!
But you know what…it hasn’t.
And I just wanted to share that.
and if I can do this….you can, too!
He isn’t reading yet…but, I can tell..it’s in there. He’s getting it. He’s learning his phonics, and the cute letter stories for each letter/sound, and we have a few sight words down as well.
It isn’t because I’m some magical mommy, either…please don’t think that..or think that i think that…hah, we both know better!
I just found something that works for us….Remember that IEW PAL review I wrote? Well…it’s working! and tonight, he wanted to play one of his games. Yes, you read that right….it wasn’t ‘school time’…it was play time and he pulled out his folder and fed Mugs and then….fed his Monster the sight words…
So, here he is..this cute little guy that keeps this Mama laughing non stop…..
Do you have a little one who keeps you laughing too? Are they hitting some milestones? I would LOVE to hear about those amazing moments!
