November 24 - December 1, 2012 + First Sunday of Advent

What we did this week:

  • The Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading: Lessons 118-121 (A alone before L as /ô/, A alone after W as /ô/; review of words with the /ô/ sound; the vowel pair OW as /ou/; the vowel pair OU as /ou/)
  • Zaner-Bloser Handwriting 1: Pages 21-31 (forward circle lines, slant lines, keys to legibility: shape, size, spacing, slant)
  • Spelling Workout A: Lessons 5-8 (ending sounds and letters; beginning and ending s, t, b; beginning and ending h, m, p, k; beginning and ending j, f, g)
  • Who Am I?: Lesson 5 (Love Others as God Loves You)

Keeping on keeping on.  We should receive his report for November tomorrow.  His senior therapist was really excited about the progress he's made on the VB-MAPP, so I'm looking forward to seeing the data.


Talking, talking, talking.  She's still trying to pick out letters, so we'll keep up with Starfall and see what happens.


Will be six months old in less than two weeks and that is completely impossible because it has not been half a year since that kid was born!


We are ready!

The only thing left to do is hang our purple and pink lights in the windows.  And play the heck out of this album.  Good Advent to you!
