I'm starting a very casual, informal homeschooling program with Burl. I've been thinking about the different interests my boys have and how I can help encourage the development of their natural talents. I thought I'd share a little bit about each of them.
Loves numbers (counting, adding, taking away, putting a quantity on things, "Mommy, I love you 63, 64, and 65 one hundreds. Is that a lot?"), bugs, animals (especially kitties), destroying things (shredding paper with scissors, whacking blackberry vines with sticks, stabbing holes in cardboard boxes, ripping paper and books, etc.), hero/ villain relationships, making up stories with me (we each make up a part and add on to the other's), pirates, climbing things as high as he can go, throwing balls.
Balls, women, water (swimming, playing, and drinking), baby animals, forts!, anything that gets him to smile and laugh, dirt, sand, bugs.
Enjoy your day, Friends!
