A friend who is considering staying home asked me if I did structured learning time with my daughter. I don't.
The reason she asked is because they do that in daycare with her son and he knows his colors already.
It made me wonder should I be doing structured learning time and if so what should I be doing?
My daughter is 17 months old and is definitely soaking up everything like a sponge. I coudn't believe it when she did the hand motions for itsy bitsy spider the other day. Where did she learn that? I haven't been drilling it into her.
I can say I'm definitley not thinking of making the whole day a "School day" but would love some ideas/suggestions for learning activities.
