Bugsy completed All About Spelling Level 1. This has been hard work for Bugsy and has taken him a very long time to get through. He is not a natural speller nor is he a natural reader. It's hard work! He is getting there. He has started to realise that different letters or letter combinations can make the same sounds and with spelling you have to decide which to use. It's kind of like solving a puzzle, there is only one right way (expect for those commonly accepted American words, but we are not going there yet!).
Chicky completed the first Handwriting Without Tears book Get Set for School. This is a great, gentle introduction to printing. We have never used this book before but i am really impressed with the foundation it has given Chicky. She will be moving on to Letters and Numbers for Me on Monday. She's really looking forward to it. Below you can see a sample of her work from the final pages of the book.
So as a reward for all their hard work went to ...
and the kids had Squashed Frogs and Fluffy Koalas :D
