I don’t usually dread Mondays unlike most working people. In fact, I love Mondays! Who doesn’t love fresh starts?
Our Monday somehow started the wrong way because of the number 8. Writing this number is super easy so I am still wondering what went wrong earlier.
Hey, stop dancing.
You know what, Lana isn’t much into writing. Let her read a story and she’ll gladly oblige, ask her to write something and *sigh*, never mind. We are normally done with math in a few minutes but today, it lasted for more than 20 minutes. So unusual.
I would like to think that MAYBE it’s because she’s too young for writing? She’s 4 years and 10 months but is already doing 1st Grade worksheets. I could no longer give her activities appropriate for her age because she already finds them “babyish”. She has no patience for writing at all!
Other homeschooling moms have recommended this book Handwriting Without Tears Letters and Numbers Kindergarten so now I am looking for possible sources locally.
The good thing about our session today was that she read an 8-page story about a bear and her friend Emily and was able to answer the post-story questions the book had for her. #happymommy
If there’s one thing I’ve learned about homeschooling, it’s ditching perfection or even just the thought of “perfecting” your routine. Because you’ll always end up frustrated and angry. Kawawa ang kids.
I know in time Lana will eventually write her 8 well. For now, let me apologize for being so hard on her.
Mommies need to say sorry, too!
To homeschooling moms, how long does your daily sessions last? Because with the girls, 15-20 mins is enough to finish one subject. So we spend just an hour or so in academics. The rest of the time is spent watching our favorite TV shows, drawing, writing reports and playing with err…FNAF.
