Today was a good day. Some issues with David listening, but that isn’t unusual.
During lessons today we did some grammar and spelling worksheets. One of the worksheets was unscrambling letters to form a word. The shortest word was 6 letters. Twelve words total, took him less than five minutes.
As a treat I gave him a word search, which he loves to do. In no time, he was done with his lessons, and you know what? I had no problems getting him to work on his lessons. Now he is playing baseball on the Wii. Tomorrow we will go outside for a while so he can shoot hoops in the driveway.
During lessons today, I told David that we need to concentrate on the good aspects of what makes him who he is. I explained about how he has trouble listening, and how he can do the word scrambles and searches so easily. I explained that some things are gifts that we can work on developing. I wonder what other gifts he has that haven’t been tapped into yet!
