We have been seriously considering homeschooling Elizabeth since before she was born. I realize she’s only 18 months old, but I truly believe parents should be the primary teachers, and that it is our responsibility to teach our kids.
I have been doing age appropriate things with her pretty much since she was born. As part of the Healthy Parenting Challenge, I’ll periodically be sharing a few of the things with you.
You can use anything to teach! Count her blueberries when you give them to her. Name your body parts while you dress her. Name all of the colors of her toys, food, etc…
Something that Elizabeth loves is bath time, so I of course utilize it to teach her!
And I have her pick out the yellow ducks and the green frogs as displayed in the top picture!
She still needs help picking the first color, but once I put one red things, she can sort them!
Children are much smarter than we think they are. Their little brains can hold and retain so much information, even as babies!
Do you toddler school? I’d love to hear what you do to engage your little’s mind
