I really want to make the best of our son’s (age 2) education. I really think he can learn better at home in a more personalized setting. Should I start home schooling him when he is 2.5 or 3? Or should I wait until about 4 or 5? Alison G.
I suggest starting now by:
- reading to him
keeping him away from the “screen”
talking to him in a non-baby talk way
model reading and learning to him by letting him see you reading to yourself
giving him access to art materials
start him memorizing VERY simple things
At around age 5 or 6 you’ll start to teach him to read by intensive phonics. You’ll need to buy a phonics curriculum at that time.
