Anthony has been very interested in school lately. He has several workbooks, thanks to my mom and Darrell, and some flashcards I got him, but I admit that I rarely sit down with him to work on any of them. He, however, is SO interested in them that he will, of his own accord, get out a workbook, and stand at his desk, tracing letters and numbers for an HOUR, uninterrupted!! Anyway, I feel like I'm failing him, because he obviously has SO much potential and I've done little to encourage continued learning and growth in this area...not like I've had my hands full of anything else...but still! So, about a week ago, I told him that we would start doing "school time," during the day while daddy is at work and the girls are asleep. That's usually my "hurry up and get things done" time, but I'll just have to figure out other ways to get my work done!
So he hasn't forgotten my promise, and has been begging me to do school time...so finally, today, we did it. First he did some worksheets on colors and matching, then some worksheets on shapes, then he did some addition flashcards using dry noodles to count, and finally, he glued noodles onto paper to spell his name...he thought that was VERY cool! We probably spent about 45 minutes total, and he still wasn't ready to be done, but it was lunch time and I was starving!
