JoLuRu Posted September 13, 2012 Share Posted September 13, 2012 DD is 4yo and we're doing a year of home pre-K. I pulled her from a preschool program and I'm worrying now that I'm not giving her enough to challenge her. Each day, we've done: 1 lesson in Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons 2-3 pages in HWOT pre-k book 2-3 pages in Kumon Numbers 1-30 1-2 pages in Kumon First Book of Cutting All this is done in under an hour and she'd happily do more workbook pages at a time. We're reading aloud "By the Banks of Plum Creek" in the evenings with big brother (and just finished Little House on the Prairie,) along with several picture books a day. She watches one or two TV shows a day, usually Magic School Bus, Sid the Science Kid, Leapfrog Letter Factory and Talking Words. There is also unfettered access to art supplies, so she colors and draws a lot. Once a week she has gymnastics, and we play for an hour on the playground every day. And then she plays toys! Which I know is learning, of course, but I feel like she'd be happy to do more school and I'm not sure if I should push more. Does this seem like enough for a kid who is very enthusiastic about learning? I don't want to burn her out but I worry that my own pace is slower than she's willing to do and don't want to hold her back. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
