Last week he wrote to 100!!!!!!!!!!!! We had a copy of his work from December and he had a few lines written, but nothing resembled a number. Now 3 months later he wrote all the way to 100!
We are working really hard on teaching him the alphabet. Sarah, who I have worked with for the past 4 years has taught me so much, and one of the things she showed me was that you can write on the table.
Here is the kids' work.
Its a little hard to see, but he has written the letter C, X, O, D, and a bunch of others that I don't remember. This is so exciting for me to see. I love it when the students I am working with make progress.
Aren't we blessed that our children have parents who know how to help them learn at home. Our children are even learning when we don't think we are teaching. My heart goes out every day to my students because their life is full of challenges.
*They move every fall and again in the spring
*When the move in the fall they often are living in a trailer or apartment with a few other families
*They don't have parents who know English so they can't ask them questions and at school they don't know the words to ask the questions they have
*They don't have books, toys, crayons, etc. always available to play with at home
We are so fortunate that we can help our children succeed.
