Sometimes, even the best-laid plans go astray. You know that we started preschool back in September. We were so excited about it. We had a great couple of weeks. And then...it just didn't happen for a day or two. Then a few more days. Then a week. You get the idea. Official, structured preschool is something we're going to strive for again this fall. He's still only four. We've got plenty of time. And the honest truth is, he learns so much just by being a kid and playing, running, shouting, jumping, and asking questions that I'm not worried about his knowledge level.
As a kid, I was a voracious reader. I was never without a book. I would sit for literally an entire day just reading and be perfectly content. It's pretty clear that that is not my son's learning style.
He needs to be active. He needs to be on the go. He's going to need motivation to sit down and do math problems.
I was really happy with the Growing in Grace Sing and Play Activity Kit that Family Christian sent us to check out, because it fits right in with our style of learning in this season of Lincoln's life. The kit comes in a handy little carrying case and contains a CD of fun songs to sing (we listen in the car often), and an activity book, crayons, and sticker sheets.
Lincoln's favorite part was the stickers - he was so excited to find the page of animal prints and match the correct sticker to each set of footprints. He did it all by himself, too! I was pretty proud.
I love all of the music on this collection. It offers a wide range of tunes - from The William Tell Overture to God Made My Feet to No More Pie, the music genres represented are plentiful. The kids are both fairly obsessed with doing the Hokey Pokey.
