So we all know how stubborn children can be with learning!! I have a 4 year old that is very very fun -if you know what I mean- to teach things lol! So I have to come up with clever ways all the time to get her to learn stuff with me! It takes a lot of brain power, a lot of time, but I think this just might work!. I have created a "Star Chart" for my daughter to learn the essentials! (writing her first & last name, numbers, address, alphabet, birthday, colors, and shapes) I have put a lot of time into it hoping that this will work for me and for you!! ;) I told Whitney (my daughter) That when she achieves all of her stars she gets a big big prize at the end! I have included FREE PRINTABLES of all the pages for you to try this out with your kids as well! I would love to hear in comments to see if it works for you and your babies! Whitney and I are still in the process =]!
