He is 6 years old, and has yet to learn all of his ABC's (gasp!).
I have tried multiple curricullums, but nothing has seemed to be the 'right' fit for him. He has a short memory. Which caused much frustration on my part. So I decided that I would hold off on teaching him until he 'wanted' to learn. This was hard for me. I have expectations of my children, and when they don't meet them, I struggle to let go of the control that I thought I had. It's such a relief to let go. Whew!
So, like I said, today was a big day.
It is much easier to teach and learn when the desire is there. Plus, I don't have to pull teeth. Yay for their 'chewers'.
I had asked for some help from fellow homeschoolers, and a lot of them suggested Starfall. So I plopped him on the couch with my ipad, and let him play away.
Once he had gone through all the alphabets, he came into the school room, and said "I still don't know how to read!"
If only it was that easy...
