I have a four year old son who will be turning five this year which means he’ll also be starting school. I didn’t send him to Pre-K because for one I wasn’t ready, two I wasn’t ready and three I figured I’d teach him everything he needed to know at home.
So I’ve worked with him on ABC’s 123’s as well as coloring inside the lines. He’s been taught how to write his name as well as how to recognize letters. We are currently learning to master the sounds each letter makes which is something my sister (who’s been teaching over ten years) told me he’d need to know as well. So last year we bought him a nice kid computer pad that helps us with teaching alphabetic sounds and more. Yay!
He’s such a sponge, so ready to soak it all up. We’re working on tying his shoes too but he’s like ma this is so confusing.😝 Now, if he hasn’t learned the whole tying of his shoes by Summer I may need to rethink calling him a genius.😂 He’ll just be rocking some velcro shoes, that way he can just strap them up and go. See eazy peezy doggy squeezy. Yeah, he’s a paw patrol fan too.
The last thing he must know before he starts school is how to wipe himself. As a mother I don’t like the sound of anyone having to wipe him so I’ll be sure to have him doing it himself before Spring.
All in all I’m very proud of my little stinky. He’s such a cool, goofy as can be smart happy little boy.
