PRESCHOOL

J sits in on Bible, Science, History, Geography, Language, and Music. It’s up to him how much he wants to listen to. He’s usually playing with legos or blocks or coloring after the first two subjects…but he still catches stuff. For example he can say the definition of a noun along with G.
While G is working on his Math and Explode the Code (he can do those mostly on his own)…J and I work on a Kindergarten Math book (he’s a strange kid, he asks to do it for fun), or projects from Mommy Teach Me to Read or Get Ready for the Code. My goal this year is for him to know the most common sounds of the letters, and start to learn some letter blends. I’m still trying to decide how to prepare him for Kindergarten, because he’ll be going to a formal school next year.
