When we made the decision to homeschool I definitely was nervous. I was not sure if i would be able to teach her anything. How was this new relationship going to work? Going from mother and daughter to student and teacher every day. I know in the big picture parents are the greatest teachers, they learn things from us every day...but the act of teaching a subject for school seemed daunting. We recently have finished the school year, and it feels like we have been successful. While we were still in school mode, Avery seemed to balk when asked to read or do anything that was hard. Now that school is over i am finding her reading her readers to Mitchell, or reading signs, reading food packages, everything, and she is happy to do it and is proud of herself. I am proud of her. She is excited to show her skills to anyone who will listen. Many evenings and mornings have been spent with her new book, Now we are Six by A.A. Milne. This book is more words than pictures, a collection of sweet little stories and poems, and she is loving it and reading it all the time. We worked hard to get here, and i am sure we will be practicing more, but SHE CAN READ!! I am giving this year of homeschool a thumbs up.
