The 8 Year Old Teacher.

"Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right."
Proverbs 20:11

Sometimes when the kids are busy playing, I sneak up on them and see what they're up to...

especially when they've been kind of quiet...

or have been in one place for more than 5 minutes.

Something is definitely going on here.

I can see Violet giving instructions and commands,

not at all unusual.

Then she starts her habit of sucking on her necklaces,

nasty habit,
but tells me she's concentrating intensely.

I step up to examine...

and am pleasantly surprised.

Violet got some "Silly Bands" for her birthday from my Farmer's sister and family.  These are letter silly bands.

I didn't realize how useful of a toy a silly band could be.

"Now pick an 'A'.  It says 'aaaa',"
I hear Violet saying to Levi.

"I'll give you a hint," she continues.
"It's pink."

(and I see she's got her 'J' backward again.  Hmm.  Need to work on that some more).

"See the words we've made, Mom."

Thanks for helping me out with the home-schooling, Violet.


I love your comments!
