School is in session!
The kids were excited to start, which I found surprising but refreshing. The week has been going pretty smoothly. I give thanks to the fact that I've taught some of the material before and familiar with the curriculum. I also give thanks that the first few lessons are super easy and just easing into things.
Day 2 of math with Eli had me laughing. He said, "Is that it?" when we finished the lesson, so I pulled out some flashcards. He's never done flashcards, but a BIG smile came over his face. He read 9+9=...and said, "Okay, so 20-2 is 18." I just sat there staring at him...my dad said that's how my grandpa thinks about numbers and he's a brilliant man, but I have no idea how to teach that way!
