Greater Than, Less Than
I showed her how to write the greater than/less than and equal signs and she decided to write some herself as well. So much learning going on with this little activity.One thing I love about homeschooling is that you see all of this progress in learning without having to TEACH a lot of the skills. Children are natural learners. For example, I never drilled her to learn her numbers, however, she just picked them up through daily experiences. Although I have taught her basic phonics, a few weeks ago she naturally chose an alphabet book and magnetic letters and matched up the lowercase and uppercase letters. This was not a skill I specifically taught, but she just decided to do on her own. I love it!
