When we first started Hannah was a little fussy and upset. She had wanted to wear her Mickey Mouse clubhouse ears at school and I wouldn't let her. Not that her wearing the Mickey Mouse ears was that big of deal, but I want her home school experience to be relatively structured and she wouldn't be allowed to wear Mickey ears at a regular school so she wont be wearing them at her school either!! Go ahead...call me a mean teacher.
Today we learned about the letter I and we'll be working on that all week. As the morning went along Hannah's mood improved and she actually seemed to be enjoying school. We talked about the calendar as well and what day today is. Also about the weather and what the weather is like today. When I told Hannah that school was over and she was done for the day, she was upset again. This time because she wanted to keep doing school. I think she's convinced that school is suppossed to be about learning how to paint as that is what she keeps telling me that I have to teach her.
So tomorrow we'll be learning more about the letter I and next week she will actually start writing in her writing book. Also next week we will begin working on numbers. As for this afternoon, we are headed to the beach as Hannah's reward for doing so well in school today! Hopefully she wont come to expect going somewhere really fun after every successful school day!!
