..... seeing your child's accomplishments.
My son's 3rd day of Kindergarten and he's so good at writing his name already! We did an exercise at home today for 30 minutes. We practiced each letter individually and then I had him go put it all into practice on the chalkboard. I am sooooo proud of my boy. He didn't need any help at all, and with each letter he printed, he said the letter name. I hope it all sticks in his memory, and that he actually does it at school. It's so beautiful!
I think we'll practice every day this week and then next week work diligently on numbers 1 to 10. But when I say diligently, I mean in the most FUN way of course! I found out today that I make an awfully good cheerleader, and I guess all those years of working with this mental age group in the school setting really did me some good for my teaching skills too! Still.... I'm not looking forward to high school mathematics.....
