I'm very grateful that Wa'a is participating in Upstart online preschool. I have always known about it and knew many people who's children benefited from it, so I knew I wanted Wa'a to give it a try.
Wa'a is not a lover of hard mental work. If he doesn't immediately understand what is asked of him, he gets very frustrated from the get go and feels so overwhelmed. I feel sad to see him have self doubt when he struggles. But with major persistence and work, he has grown so much and learned more than I could have imagined!
The sessions are getting harder and harder and they are wanting Wa'a to be able to read 3 letter words. He is back to feeling lost and upset, so we are working more than ever to jump this hurdle. It is a fight to even get him to do his homework and even sit still. It is a challenge for both of us. Bless his heart.
Along with his preschool, I am grateful for the many available programs, materials, and teachers who make learning fun and possible for children. I do as much as I can at home, and feel blessed there are many more ways to encourage and help his young mind.
