Mother's Day is only a few short days away and I wanted to do something special for you amazing moms. I am so thankful for each and every one of you. You are my friends, my support and my inspiration. You are doing such a fantastic job at raising your little ones.
I was talking to a number of our homeschooling moms about why I chose to start with the letter T first as too many it was a shock that the letter A wasn't my first choice. Before I even started this curriculum I spent about a month researching what children should learn before starting kindergarten. ( I went to university for many years studying early childhood education so the month was a refresher.) What studies and lists and teachers have all pointed to were things like fine motor skills, shape and colour recognition, numbers and counting, letters and things of this nature. We can teach these subjects to our little ones in the best way that suits them and sets them up for success.
