education other ways....

Most of Siân's stay and play freinds are off to nursery htis coming september. She won't be going as she isn't 3 till December. And she quite possibly won't be going *next* year either if we do decide to home educate her. Neither Clive nor I were over enamoured of school and learnt more after we left.

I got to thinking about what she has learnt in the way of shapes and colours..... i'm sure i'm missing some too!

shapes:- star, moon, sun, triangle, square, circle, heart, "hole" this is a semi-circle in her eyes!
colours:- red, yellow, green, pink, orange, gold, purple, blue, black, white, silver

counting she's not so hot on.... 1-2-3-4-7-9-10! the joke of that is she can and does go correctly from 1-10 and can tell me how many #s of things are there (as long as it's 1-4!)

oh and she knows a few anmials from baby signing too
dog, cat, cow, sheep, pig, horse, crocodile, frog, rabbit, monkey, lion, tiger, snake, tortoise, butterfly, bumble bee, snail

next i guess it's the alphabet.... with family specific letters i think, but there is plenty of time for that.
