Learning with Adelei

I mentioned a few posts ago how fun my daughter's age is.
She's picking up on things & learning so fast, it's amazing.
Not that she hasn't been learning all along, but her brain is a sponge right now and I love it.
She has inspired me to create a curriculum for her!
My husband looked at me a little crazily when I told him what I was doing, but after all, I do have a degree in education, so it's not like I'm not going into this blindly.
After I put her down for a nap, or put her to bed at night, I pull out my computer and start researching & planning. What I know for sure is that the first step will be a 26 week curriculum learning the alphabet, colors, simple shapes, and numbers 0-9.
I cannot even to begin to express how passionate I feel about this right now. 
I know teaching is something that I am meant to do with my life, and I am so grateful that I have the ability to stay home & teach my daughter.
As we go through the curriculum, I will be sharing our activities, ideas, tutorials, and pictures of my sweet girl in action, so be sure to check back!

I think that's awesome that you are doing that for your daughter. I would love to have some sort of curriculum or plan to do with my little girl - looking forward to seeing all of your activities. :)

Good idea! I remember one thing I did for my kids was take pictures of things we always buy at the grocery store (bread, milk, ketchup, juice, etc) and glued them to index cards. So every time we went shopping, they would get the box of cards and it was their job to identify the objects. It got them through grocery shopping with no whining, and then they got really good at item comparison. Then we practiced the up/down/over/under concepts with it. Tons of fun. :)
