We have been taking a loong break from Tot School and Preschool lessons. First with Fall break, which ran into our move, which ran into the holiday/December break. But that doesnt mean we arent learning.
This morning at breakfast, we ate Cheerios. The box was out on the table while we ate, so I turned it into a learning opportunity. I asked Mustang the letters in Cheerios, then had Charger tell me the letters, too. We discussed the sound that each letter or group of letters make and then sounded out the word.
Mustang and Charger both loved 'reading' the word. The kids have been bringing me our foam letters and trying to make words ever since. Just because you cant have formal 'school' doesnt mean you can not teach your kids at home.
