Since the last time I wrote, we have hit a few milestones. First, I cannot believe we have passed the 50th day mark! I only realized this when we turned the page in her math book. Second, my baby turned 6! She is growing up so much. We had a great time, and time is starting to really go by fast as the holidays approach. I've enjoyed this time and found that we can be flexible. I've tried to stick to a schedule, but there are days when this just does not work. Hannah often asks when we are having class if we get off schedule. I must be doing something right! Oh, by the way, here is the video of Hannah counting that I mentioned in my previous post.
I especially like her little brother thinking he is posing for the camera! My little kinesthetic learner needs to jump and play! I fear that if she were in regular school they would label her ADHD!
I am amazed at how much she is learning right now. We've started on subtraction. Just yesterday, she was doing a worksheet on her own. She was able to do a few subtraction problems correctly! I had not even taught her that part of the book yet. She just used her little noggin and figured it out! Her new game is to complete her worksheet on her own, then have me close my eyes to surprise me with how well she did.
I feel at times we hit speed bumps. Usually this starts with frustration when Hannah is not getting a simple concept. I usually have to press her and try to explain it in different ways. The thing is, once she gets it, she has no problem figuring it out the next time. The frustration is worth it in the end.
