Both. Ben's 3.5 years old right now. He's on a 1st grade level for reading, math, and science, but he hasn't really done much writing. He has plenty of playtime, and he directs what he wants to learn on a particular day ... like, for example, elephants ... but every Monday (or Tuesday if Monday won't work), we have 1-1.5 hours of "structured" time where we do the week's Bible lesson, a little of each subject (that includes his theme... like reading a book about elephants), and some computer time (we'll google elephants and do some prek/k websites). Throughout the week, I'll reinforce what we learned, but it's mostly verbal. I'm not sure what I'll do this fall. I've considered buying a formal curriculum, but I haven't decided. He'll be 4 on Dec 1st.
Thanks to tasha_mae for my siggy!
