Child Led Preschool

You guys. Homeschool rocks. Homeschool preschool? Super amazing.

Like. A. Sponge.

And the best part? We pretty much get to do Child Led learning. We have been doing a lot of research and we are pretty sure we know what kind of homeschool we are going to have in the future. At least when D is ready for Kindergarten. (More on that in the future!) But, for now, it’s all about play. That is how they learn at this age!

Today we woke up. We talked about our letter this week. (Which is “W” by the way.) He built a tower out of blocks. He wrecked the tower. He raced some cars and trains. We put some trucks in order by size. Then we picked up our friend and went to the park in the beautiful sun where he was able to play with a one year old and talk to his mom and grandma. They let him spell his name for them and he talked to the other boy about how their shoes matched.

Can you even imagine the things that he learned today?

Honestly, the thing about D that amazes me so much, he “tells” me when he wants to learn. He asks questions, brings me a book, and he practices writing his name and names of the people that he talks about all day.

And I see it all the time with other kiddos as well! All we have to do is make sure the “tools” are available. Some time at the library, things to count, general conversation that keeps them noticing things and asking questions. How cool is that?

We don’t have these type of days every day. But when they happen, we are so grateful.

Much love and play,

Mama. Imperfect.
