Flash forward to today. I had to use College books for Math and Chemistry. (We all know I was very excited for Chemistry because Chemistry paid for my college) But I was nervous because Raven, though very smart...is only 10. Today, I not only had to teach her at a different level that I didn't think she was ready for, I also had to teach her how to use college text books and take notes. (Workbooks do this for the children) And to my pleasant surprise she caught on. In chemistry I broke down each chapter into a section. So instead of say Chapter One...I did Chapter One section one, and did the homework with that section.
Its only day one...but she did really well. If she does well over the course of the next few months, I think I will start believing the fact that we are selling our kids short and once they have the basic knowledge...the world really is their oyster.
As always have a blessed day...and I will let you know our progress. :)
