First, I would like to say that you are doing an excellent job homeschooling. The fact that your daughter can read at a 1st-2nd grade level is fantastic! Developing good reading skills is crucial, and that is exactly what you have done. Great Job!
As for place values, you really donâ€™t have to worry about those yet. In fact, we donâ€™t start doing place values until the child starts working with larger numbers (e.g. adding 3 digit numbers together).
While youâ€™re waiting, you could teach her numbers, addition, subtraction, and maybe even her times tables! Above all, however, it is crucial to instill in your daughter a love for learning: make sure you never frustrate her and always encourage her. As long as you make it fun, youâ€™ll see that your daughter will love both math and learning in general.
If the curriculum youâ€™re using isnâ€™t working out, you could either modify it as you go, OR you could just stop using it altogether. She is after all only four, and there really is no need to follow a rigid curriculum at this age (actually, there never
is a need for rigid curricula when you homeschool!
) Of course, If you really are determined to teach her place values, you probably could: just make sure itâ€™s both refreshing and fun!
Hope this helps, and God bless!
