And yes, I give stickers. What can I say? I'm a teacher at heart!
After slacking for a few months, Joel challenged me to start having school with the kids again. We are working on shapes, numbers, letters, and having a Bible lesson every morning. This morning we worked on the letter C and the number 4. The kids were eager to show their new skills off to Daddy. Joel asked Possum to write C and A (which was our letter yesterday). I quickly remembered that Possum already knew the letter T and could now write a word. He was so pleased with himself when he spelled out loud and wrote the word CAT. We were all high-fiving and cheering for him. Then we realized that he knew the letter H as well and could also spell and write HAT. I guess he will be reading "The Cat in the Hat" before we know it! Squirrel is also doing great for a 2 year old. She is learning everything Possum is with the exception of writing the letters. She can recognize them, but I'm not ambitious enough to teach her to write them, plus she gets tired and just wants to color! I'm very proud of my little scholars!
