Re: "Home schooling" Baby/ Toddler

Check out the blog "Play at home Mom". Lots of activities for your toddler to do and learn at. They're fun, inexpensive and not structured.

Re: "Home schooling" Baby/ Toddler

There are guides for those needing help doing this. Flowering Baby gives daily ideas in putting this in action based on your child's age. Each of the five guides has twelve months of activities stories explorations etc to enjoy.
Another big thing is figuring out a schedule for the day. That's a great way to have flow before homeschooling. Up at 7. 8-10 outdoor time. 10-11 errands. 11-12 read and dance and play inside. 12 lunch, story, and yoga stretch. 1 nap/quiet time (2 mom does chores or exercise) 3 up and errands or outdoor play 4) supper prep and art 5) reading to calm down 5:30supper
Just a schedule can help

Re: "Home schooling" Baby/ Toddler

I started Pre-K at 3 with my son. Prior to that I was doing other "schooling" such as Letter of the Week or even Your Baby Can Read (which I got cancer in the middle of and couldn't do it like I should have). I am also someone that needs structure to feel like I am doing it "right".

For my newbie, I got the book Slow and Steady Get Me Ready. I just got it on Friday so there is only so much I can say about it, but it does give me a task to do every week from birth to age 5. I think that is reasonable though I am not sure when I will start "school" with my newbie like I did with my ODS.

Yes. Just play and have fun. Working on character will benefit more then academics. Does he/she listen to you? Does he/she follow directions? Etc.
