Parents are the first teachers

Today I am making these sentence strips and other random tidbits as part of William's daily learning activities. He has shown a lot of maturity with his memory and vocabulary so it is time to step things up. I plan to hang some of these in his room so he can read them out loud every morning when he hops out of bed. We did something similar with the girls and I really think it helped.

One very important thing we feel every child needs is to have self-confidence. Why should a child not feel like he or she is the best? I feel like the old school teaching methods I used for the girls were a success so I am doing the same for William. I am still playing with the idea of home schooling him. We shall see!

  1. I LOVE this idea! I'm so doing it for my girls! Thanks!

  2. Make sure he learns how to say "Aunty Buggie is my favorite..."

  3. Well said! We are the ones to encourage our children first. Love the project you did with the strips!

  4. Super mom. =)

    Homeschooling...that's something we still haven't figured out if we're going to do yet.

  5. These are awesome! I'm totally encouraged by you and therefore stealing the idea. *lol* Thanks lady!
