Today, Macklin said, "Mom, I gotta do some homework now." Of course I was interested to see what this meant since he does not have homework really. He requested a "clear" sheet of paper and a crayon. He then started to write out his numbers. After 6, he said that he was better at letters than he was at numbers. So he flipped the page over and wrote a quick MAC (actually the fastest and most confidently that I have ever seen him do it). Then we got out his school flash card letters and he wrote nearly all of the letters before losing interest.
It was fun to watch his excitement over learning (yes, I am a teacher, right?). But he was also focused for a good bit of time. That is equally exciting. Go preschool!
