Today, he finished Level 1 of All About Spelling!
He was quite exited to put his first sticker on the progress chart!
Since writing seems to be a weak spot, I've been trying not to push it, but I do have him trace the calendar page or color something each day and he's definitely showing improvement.
Today we talked about Martin Luther King, Jr., and I had him do this simple coloring page. He did fabulous on the shirt and tie, started getting bored at the shoes, then definitely bored at the face and hands. By the time he got to the suit, he very dramatically proclaimed, "Mommy! There are SO MANY twos! I'll NEVER be able to color ALL of them!!" So I told him he didn't have to color it perfectly and he settled on giving MLK a "swirly suit" as he called it.
Having Martin Luther King Jr. Day fall on today made for a great segueway for when I sat down to fold laundry, turned on Dr. Phil and saw that Obama was being inaugurated. We talked about what that means and how it was pretty neat that it fell on today with Obama being the first African-American president. When Maddie saw Joe Biden walking in the parade, she asked, "who dat?" and I said, "Oh, that's Joe Biden. Can you say 'Joe'?" and clear as day she said, "Zho!" It was adorable and she was quite proud of herself. Kasen thought it was hilarious because she has just recently really started talking.
