On January 21st 2017 Drake will be home for 3 years! He turns 6 in April. We have home schooled a year at the end of January and he's made so much progress with his education. Here's a collage of pictures over time.
45 days of homeschool today!!! I'm learning so fast! I know all my ABCs except that tricky lowercase L and D! I'm headed to Walmart with dad, as you can tell I'm wearing my boots since it's rainy wet outside today!
We are at day 28 of preschool homeschool, which Drake wanted to name "Purple School" today instead of homeschool. His academic learning has progressed tremendously in the last month. He started out identifying about 6 uppercase letters a month ago to identifying 43 of 52 (upper and lower) letters. He is doing better with coloring. He used to just scribble or draw circles and now he is able to draw lines on his own (1st picture) below. We call them roads so the animals can travel to each other (lol). I have picked up a lot of supplies including a large preschool workbook and I purchased the Phonic's preschool materials. I just got some finger paints which he really enjoyed. We took a field trip this week to the donut shop in town, of course he loves donuts!
On 1/28/16 we made the decision to home school Drake. It has a choice that we have been considering for well over a year. It is a very exciting option for us! I will start modifying this blog to include home school information and updates. We will be working on pre-school work to prepare Drake for Kindergarten work. We will officially start Kindergarten July 1.
