Emma Sage is so excited about schooling....she tells everyone she is 'HomeSchooled' and she is quite proud of that fact.
Yestday was an amazing day....I have to update when I have some time [when will that be???? oh please, current of life slow a bit so this Momma can update all the amazing adventures we have been on] but her is her first 'Official' start of school shot.
Tonight, I promise our 'Educating Emma Sage' blog will be filled with pictures and the curriculum we have chosen.
Just a proud Momma fact [OK,,,,so it seems like a brag, but I am so proud of this little girl and how much she loves to learn that I just had to share!!], Emma Sage knows all her ABC's [upper and lower] can count to 20, can count by twos & tens, knows her numbers without hesitation to 13 visually, can add and subtract her counting bears in any combination you present to her up to 13 [that seems to be her magic number] and has a sight word base of 63 words [from the Dolch list]. We will start our 'Teach your child to read in a 100 easy lessons' in about two weeks....until then we are working on her foundation of letters and sounds. I have compiled so many incredible learning tools/books/programs and I am so excited to be able to share what we are doing.
So.....her is one more image from our first day.....
I thought this would be a fun place to visit on our first day, as this is the old one-room school house in our township [now a museum].
