November 4-10, 2012

What we did this week:


  • Saxon Math 1: Lessons 57-60 (writing the number 52, adding two to an even number; writing the number 53, adding two to an odd number; writing the number 54, covering a design with pattern blocks, sorting/counting/recording the pattern blocks used to cover a design; written assessment #11, oral assessment #6)
  • The Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading: Lessons 108-111 (U plus a silent E as /oo/, single O as /oo/; the vowel pair UE as /oo/; the vowel pair EW as /oo/; the vowel pair UI as /oo/ )
  • Zaner-Bloser Handwriting Kindergarten: Pages 136-139 (writing sentences, writing a note, writing an invitation)
The caterpillars are all still alive, thank goodness.  The monarch butterfly ones molted again and moved into the fifth (and final) instar phase.  The tersa sphinx moth just keeps eating and growing. Maybe next week?


That blue line really says it all.  Those are his independent mands and you can see that the trend is up.  The red line for the full prompts (when his therapist is moving Oliver's hands for him) is jumpy because he started "scrolling," or rapidly cycling through all of the mands he knows when requesting something.  Each time he does that, we hold his hands still for 10 seconds, then fully prompt the correct mand.  It's pretty common for this to start happening when they figure out that manding gets them things.  We'll just keep working on it at the center and at home. 


Still lots of shapes and colors beanbags and

I think he may be getting close to dropping his 0200 feeding.  Maybe.
