Trying Out Home Schooling

I have a couple of friends who are into homeschooling their kids -- not just one but 2 -3 kids. They have been successful at it even when they are Work-at-Home-Moms. I see the value of homeschooling as you can structure and re-structure your own "classroom" as you go along with it or as you see fit with your child. I still intend to put my little one in traditional academic setting. But since I am a Stay-at-home-mom for now, I would give this a try.

I found this sites very helpful in trying to create my lesson plan for my very playful 2 year old.
All In One Homeschool
I don't expect her to learn all or even finish any activity suggested here as my toddler's mind is pre-occupied with Unboxing Egg Surprise Videos on Youtube

So far we have done these:
Day 1: Filling Letter A

Day 3: B for Breakfast

Day 6: Pin the Letter/Shapes

And she's doing well... and too smart to let me teach her things that "she already knows". I used to spend 2 days on 1 letter so I adjust it to just 1 letter a day.

I'll end this entry with a movie scene from 2009 that I just watched recently...

Zebulon (The Answer Man): I'm gonna tell you a couple of things. All kids develop in different ways at different times and in different directions. Now I am confident that Alex at some point will be able to tell time and make change, which, let's face it, just about covers it.... What I am hearing is that Alex is not a good candidate to be a robot in your clone army.
