Today I Learned About...

Every night when Daddy gets home from work, he asks Joshua what he learned in school today. Joshua's response is always "I don't know" and Daddy has to ask a hundred questions to pry it out of him or Mommy has to remind him. So I decided to make a "Daddy Sheet" for Joshua to complete as we're doing his lessons throughout the day. As soon as we complete a lesson, I ask him what one thing he'd like to share with Daddy about what he just learned. In the box for that subject, he can draw a picture, write words or numbers, or do both. We don't do every square everyday because we don't do all subjects everyday. Joshua likes it because it's easier for him to share with Daddy what he's learning, I like it because it helps keep me accountable, and Daddy likes it because he gets to see and talk about what Joshua's learning everyday. Here is an example:
