Stepping back

First week.
A's advanced preschool books involved a lot of writing and coloring practice. However, he is finding it difficult. Perhaps the fine motors involved are not ready yet. And I've been pushing him. So, now there's the struggle. Everyday he becomes reluctant to work on his lessons. There's the willingness to learn. But I realized that perhaps the activities involved are not yet for him. Now I'm changing approach. So this is what homeschooling is all about... to constantly remind oneself that the process should be child-centered, and not the other way around- the child adjusting to an institution/ system. I guess, the books... letter & number practice will have to take the backseat for now, while brain-boosting games/play should fill out his schedule. Highly considering Montessori.

New book buys:
Number & Logic Games for preschoolers by Jane Kemp & Clare Walters
Montessori at Home! by John Bowman (
