It’s official: we now have a first grader this year! Yes, we do! The husband and I are so thrilled for our daughter who will be turning 6 years soon! And for this big girl, she thinks that being 6 entitles her to so many things which she hasn’t done when she was younger than that age. No worries though, those things are not the types that adults do. She just wants to learn more academic stuff like multiplication and division of numbers since she was only learning about addition and subtraction when she was in Kindergarten.
I am actually now starting to print reading comprehension worksheets, multiplication worksheets, and some more printable activity sheets for my soon to be first grader! We homeschooled her in Kindergarten and we’re continuing our homeschooling when she starts First Grade. We couldn’t enroll her until she’s 6 though so we will do that after her 6th birthday next month. Homeschooling worked perfectly for us on our first attempt and the husband and I have promised to partner together on our 2nd year of homeschooling our amazing firstborn! She’s advanced just the way she is and how she is learning through and from us.
Spending much time with our kids who are starting school is very important. That’s how they learn the valuable lessons in life. When you have the materials and resources that are aids in letting them master and muster the reality of life, the art of learning becomes easier. It helps that my husband is an educator himself. As for the resources, the internet is now the most accessible place to seek and get them. If you have a third grader, there are third grade math worksheets that you can take advantage of. Online resources are available, as long as the parents are able to explore the good sites that provide academic instruction and learning materials. One of them is scholastic.com and if you haven’t checked out the site yet, you may want to visit it now!
