[after Lesson 6] He just sat here and wrote out a note to me. He was saying the word and then sounding it out…which trust me that is something he does not usually do. He rarely writes a note to begin with, let alone sit and sound out a word! He misspelt one word but otherwise the rest were all correct. “R” has always been a challenging sound for him – he often misses it in a word, then misses it writing that word. During the early days in Davis he would leave it out of words altogether. But with your picture – which he finds really amusing being snot and all – the r is really making sense for him! So well done on catering to a boy’s fascination! It’s working for him:)
