Just thought I'd update about how Eli is doing in school.... He really likes it, he's doing very well and absorbing the new information quickly, he's making friends, and behaves well for his teacher. He never has any homework yet, but I do some things with him at home after school. So far it seems he's mostly doing things with beginning reading and graphing things occasionally. But I know he can do more. He's very smart with his numbers and just "gets it" easily. So not only do we practice flashcards with his sight words and lay them out to make sentences and practice spelling and sounding things out, I give him number problems.
Here are some of the things we've done lately:
|adding big numbers!! though we're still practicing how to SAY them|
|teaching him Sudoku! this website goes step by step, building up to this full-size game where just a few numbers are missing|
|somewhere along the way (this summer I think) Eli got really good at coloring. Coloring a picture completely and staying in the lines.|
I'm so proud of our little school boy!!
