Homeschooling Ayden | Mathematics | Addition
I homeschool elder brother Ethan during his preschool years. I’m doing the same with little Ayden presently.
I wonder how other young children aged 4-5 years old are able to learn in a classroom seating environment as from my observation, both my boys require tremendous individual attention during their formative years.
What I love about homeschooling is they can learn at their own pace, anywhere and anytime of the day. This way, Ayden gets ample of time to indulge in many other beyond classroom activities.
But I am also a firm believer that once they’ve completed their preschool years at home, they will have to eventually attend primary school in a school; not at home. It will be good for them to be exposed to the ‘real world’ equipped with serious competition and challenges as these will prepare them to deal with the working world in the later stage of their lives.
My role when they start attending school is to support them morally; be involved yet distance myself enough to let them grow independently.
Anyway for now, Ayden is still very much under my guidance at home. I make sure to spend several minutes each day for each subjects such as Math, Science, BM and English. Ayden loves Mathematics but he is not good in writing yet.
Yesterday, we did addition and the video below shows what it looks like in a typical homeschooling lesson with cheeky little Ayden. Sometimes, a simple lesson ended up being stretched longer due to his many questions yet at times, a difficult lesson can be solved quickly when he really puts effort into it. Whichever it is, a lesson with Ayden (or Ethan) is always fun and never once boring.
These boys bring such joy and happiness into my life ♥

Home is where MY heart is.
I am a mother to two boys; Ethan and Ayden and a wife to Darling William. I'm a stay at home mum who blogs to break the monotony of life and to avoid feeling jaded. Would love to get to know all the Super Mommies and Daddies and Babies or Singles out there with the hope that we can learn more from each other. Most of all, I am a happy person, and I hope YOU are too.
