We’ve decided on a list of things we would like Tigger to learn by the end of kindergarten (or her educational objectives, if we’re getting technical). She already reads well, so we’re focusing on math, handwriting, and art.
I also made use of a Charlotte Mason technique: copywork to teach penmanship AND spelling. So, when we got to writing number words, I asked Tigger how to spell the word and had her sound it out to try to figure it out herself. Most of the times she could spell just by using phonics; other times, words like eight confused her. (Why is eight spelled like that anyway?) But, she grasped the concept well and liked it! I think the chalkboard is a keeper….
