...I get super excited when I catch my preschooler (5 year old) concentrating on his fingers at dinner time and whispering, "1, 3, 5...1, 3...1, 3, 5...7..."
He was trying to figure out how to skip count doing only odd numbers. By the next day he was able to confidentially say the odd numbers up to 11 and the even numbers up to 10.
This is a concept I have not introduced to him formally yet. It's amazing what the Littles are able to learn just by being in the same room while the Bigs are learning. They absorb so much!
(This series is meant to be mostly lighthearted and fun. Some may be serious, but most will be silly, braggy, or of the keepin'-it-real variety. Not every homeschool is the same. And some of these things could be said by public school parents. This is just to highlight MY experience with MY homeschool and MY children. Enjoy these little insights into our life and feel free to share your own "Homeschooling means..." in the comments!)
