The day has finally arrived. It's been much anticipated around here, let me tell you. There is no doubt that Ethan is dying to learn - he has practically taught himself to read, and so I'm finally stepping up and teaching the poor kid. Oh my goodness - he is so excited!
This morning he practically bounced out of bed, eager to begin the first day of the rest of his life. I remember feeling the same way about school, but I'm just so surprised that my boy is like that too.
Even though this is preschool (slow down, kid, don't you know you have the rest of your childhood to go to school!), my main goal is to teach him to read. I'm using The Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading by Jessie Wise and Sara Buffington. We did the first three lessons today - he would not let me stop!
We did some workbook pages too, cutting and pasting, and drawing lines. Oh, what fun!
Okay, who taught him to write his name?????
