Since they are only 3 and 2, it requires my complete attention and is totally hands on. I can stand in between them and go back and forth as needed. So far I have had nothing but excitement, they ask for it a few times a day. Yesterday, Addison walked downstairs and asked if we could have classroom time even before breakfast, makes me think I am doing something right.
I am not one that likes to force learning on children, but if they are having fun and learning something at the same time, I am all for it! We typically learn by reading books. My girls love to read to me and I love to read to them, so I hope this continues throughout their lives. We own well over 500 books and are continually looking for more shelf space, but I know this will only get worse over time. I hope to keep things relaxed around here, but I know some structure is needed, which is why I thought I would try out this classroom time idea. Luckily for me, it is a success!
