Week in Review: July 8-14, 2012

Okay, one more week to slog through and then I think we can stop and catch our breath.  This month has been crazy, appointment-wise.  We'll have had 15 in the first three weeks alone!  We still managed to get quite a bit done with school this week.  Henry completed:
  • Saxon Math 1: Lessons 5-8 (writing the numbers 2, 3, and 7; identifying a circle and a square, identifying the number of sides and angles of a square; graphing a picture on a pictograph, identifying the most and the fewest on a graph, identifying right and left; writing the numbers 0, 6, 8, and 9)
  • The Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading: Lessons 50-54 (the beginning blends BL, CL FL, GL, PL, SL, SM, SP, SC, SK, SN, ST, BR, CR, DR, FR, GR, PR, TR, SQU, SW, and TW; the sight word 'of'; the digraph NG)
  • Hooked on Phonics Learn to Read First Grade Level 1: Lesson 4, but we're dropping this for now.  It's quickly turning into word recognition instead of actual phonics.  Kind of disappointing, especially since the kindergarten level was so nice.
  • Zaner-Bloser Handwriting Kindergarten: Pages 37-47 (Ll, Ii, and Tt)
This coming week is very full, so I'm not anticipating getting much school done.  Oliver has an MRI of the brain this week along with a pre-op physical since he'll need to be sedated.  It's not  for anything; just to rule out anything physical that might be affecting his language development.  He also has his regular OT and ST, plus his initial assessment at the ABA center.  Henry, Oliver, Jane, and I also have dental check-ups.  That's eight appointments in total this week.
