Every Saturday my husband & I take our son to pre-k prep class at the library. The teacher reads stories, then they go into the classroom and make art projects pertaining to the stories they all heard. They also learn their alphabets, colors, etc. At the end of the class, they get sheets of homework that we can do at home. They aren’t collected, it’s just for learning purposes. Also during the week, I have my son do activities in a pre-k book I bought for him, so he can learn outside of the classroom as well.
Today was one of the days where we sit down together and do some work. I helped my son with his cat in the hat homework, where he had to draw objects he would like to put away in a red box and a fill in the blank worksheet. After he was done, I asked him to write his name on the back of each paper. Until today, he hasn’t been able to write his name all by himself. So of course when he did it today, I was beside myself! The smile on his face was priceless as well. He was so proud of himself 😄. This is what hard work and dedication accomplishes. I’m so proud of him! I’m definitely going to have him write his name everyday until he gets better, along with some other smaller words. It’s a great feeling knowing that you are able to teach your child something, along with the classes you put them in, to better their learning and understanding.
