Should I start homeschooling now?

Postby spheremom1 » Thu Aug 31, 2006 9:37 am

My daughter will be 3 yrs old in November. She is a very bright child. (I know everyone says that.) She can count to 14, knows the alphabet, colors, shapes, and can write 6 letters. (A, H, I, O, R, T) She is wanting to learn more but I don't know if I should start now or just keep going over what she learned. She has a full vocabulary and understands what you are saying to her. She can even do a 63 piece puzzle with no problem.

What do you think I should do?

If I do start homeschooling where can I get curriculum?

Thanks for any help!

Thanks for your reply. She already knows most of that stuff, but the ones she doesn't helps a lot. Thank you very much.
