My wife asked if we were going to send our kids to pre-k. I said it's for people to lazy to be with their own kids or for 2 working parents as a free (at least you already paid) baby sitter/daycare.I love homeschooling. Can't imagine getting rid of kids while they are still this young.
Yep! The kids all have dry erase boards and dry erase markers... use them oodles for math and for penmanship.Also I remember when the dry erase or chalk was used "to do" the math not the tablet.
Then I pull out my flip phone.
I hear that argument all of the time... and it never resonated with me. "Regular" school is ... odd.We were talking about sending them to school until 3rd grade for socialazation then home school for actual learning.
Fortunately since he's not in school yet it's a 1 on 1 once a week with one of the teachers. I'd like it to be more than one 30min a week. But that's enough for him right now.I first took him to the free speech services at the school... waste of time. They worked hard at teaching him to stand in line and raise his hand. Not what he or I needed.... I finally found a private speech therapist, my insurance actually covered most of the cost.. and she was a gift from God. Not saying your kid isn't getting the help he needs at the school... I am just saying to make sure he is getting what he needs... and if he isn't, keep looking.
Oddly... when my eldest was doing speech in the public school... he wasn't yet attending school either...Fortunately since he's not in school yet it's a 1 on 1 once a week with one of the teachers. I'd like it to be more than one 30min a week. But that's enough for him right now.
