Our mornings here, were getting a bit messy…Sleeping in to late, not having a schedule. I kind of felt like I was losing myself. I decided to give my son and myself a routine. The best way I knew how to do that was “school.” I was an elementary school teacher, so I was familiar with what was expected. Also, I had a lot of the supplies already! It has been a nice journey to take with my son.

Each week we cover a number, a letter, a color and a shape!

I found Pre-k activity books. Some of the activities are too old for him, so I modify them. If there is writing or drawing lines, I do most of that. In the last few weeks he has begun coloring and circling the correct answers. It’s amazing seeing how much he’s grown,learned and developed since we began in September.

Below are pictures of what we do:
