There comes a time in every teacher's life, even a homeschool parent teacher to wonder if your children/ students are really listening and understanding what you are saying. A few weeks ago we posted how we made a scarecrow for the garden out of newspaper and old clothes and how we talked about recycling. We talked about different items that we recycle.
Today, we were having our tag sale and Mommy was drinking a can of soda. Mommy had put it down so she asked Sissy to hand it to her. Sissy did, and as she did she said to Mommy , "here, but remember you have to recycle all cans." Now, you might say that this is not a big deal, but this just reaffirms to me that parents are the best teachers. Sissy has never gone to school, so whatever she learns is because of her family! We then asked what other items we recycle and Bobo said "paper." We try to use any opportunity to revisit a past lesson.
Yes, they are taught this in school, but this proves that Sissy and Bobo so far are listening. I still believe that parents are the best educators.
