Preschool Learning

We are going on eight weeks of preschool. I feel like it is going well. I didn't do so well last week, but we have been pretty consistent. This morning I had a fun surprise. Each week I pick a word that goes along with the subject and that way the children can learn letters and the sounds the letters make. This morning I picked "Work" since our topic is on "community helpers". I hung it on the wall and David said, "What does that say?" I asked him to see if he could figure it out by telling me what sounds each letter says. So he went through and told me the sounds and did it again and again until he got an excited look on his face and exclaimed "Work!" I know he has recognized words here and there, but this was the first time I had seen him actually read a word that he had no idea what it was.

I am so excited for him! That small experience made me realize that my little efforts at doing preschool with him is really paying off! This gives me motivation to keep doing it.
