nertsmommy Posted August 28, 2012 Share Posted August 28, 2012 DD(4) came to me last Tuesday night and asked my to teach her to read because she wanted to read a book to her brother. I explained that I could't teach her to read in the 5 mins. before bedtime. I told her that I would start her on Hooked on Phonics in the morning. Morning came and I put in the cd for HOP. I stood behind her watching. I figured she'd get frustrated and decide she wanted to wait. She read 8 out of 10 of the words. So I'm tossing out all my planning I'd done for her language arts and I'm moving on with Hooked on Phonics. She's already ready to move on to the next lesson and DS is flipping because then she'll be where he is. As for DS, he's getting the math concepts quickly so I'm moving faster than I had planned with him as well. What can I do when he looks me in the eye and says, "I know how to do this. Can we please learn something new now?" So much for all the time I spent planning. :glare: I think from now on I'm not planning and I'll just wing it. :D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
