Spelling words…

Isaiah is learning to spell, which is really great. It won’t be too long now before he’ll really be able to read. We work on his spelling and reading words every night and it’s starting to pay off. Last night he was spelling words for me as I drove home from latch key.

Isaiah: Cat – C – A – T cat

Me : very good

Isaiah : Hat – H – A – T hat
Top – T – O – P top
Sit – S – I – T sit

Me: that is very good. What else can you spell?

Isaiah: I – S – A – I – A – H, that spells “Isaiah” and he has brown eyes, and black hair and he’s really cute. He’s a good seener (singer) and a good dancer.

How do you argue with that?

I'm hungry

Me: Do you want a snack?
Isaiah: No, I want a salad with meat on it.
Me: (after I pick myself up off the floor from falling there in shock) Sure, let me get that for you.

Now, for most kids, that's probably not that big of a deal. But Isaiah is extremely picky and almost never wants salad. He's been eating better lately because LeCole (Amy's friend) is offering him more things and he's seeing her kids eat things that he previously wouldn't want to eat. So, LeCole and I hurried to fix that boy a salad (with dressing) before he changed his mind.

Doing Well

Isaiah is doing very well in first grade. He does have some issues with reading but those are being worked on. He is going to the resource teacher for 90 minutes each day and has a para for 90 minutes each day. Once you add in recess, lunch, art, gym, music, etc. he's pretty much got his whole day planned out.

Mrs. B is working really well with him and everyone seems happy with how things are progressing.

I'm more busy with my own school so my posts are less frequent than they were. So, I'll just have to post what I can, when I can, and see how the year progresses.
