the school year is here.
|a smidge young, I know|
I think we are doing kindergarten with Gillian this year. Maybe?
We had been struggling along with letter learning.
I thought she would be no where near learning to read this year.
A couple weeks ago? Wham!
She gets it. She is remembering her letters.
A month ago, the recall % was close to 0.
Now, suddenly, it is up to about 85%
It is amazing to watch little ones learn.
So, I think it is a kindergarten year for Gillian.
We are still going through theme letter lesson based on totally tots ABC craft cards.
"m" is where we began this year. the kids had a blast with magnets.
Gillian knows that that magnetic items contain a high amount of iron.
She knows a compass works because of the magnetic poles in the earth.
We studied maps & we are learning to use a compass.
(So Free Range parenting, no? Pretty soon, I'll let my kids navigate the city on their own.)
this pin? I didn't DIY. I followed the link & just bought the stuff. It seemed like a hazardous project. I don't want anyone to breath in magnet dust.
you can customize them to say whatever you want!
Happy Fall, Ya'll!
