My new hobby, when I’m too tired to blog, is to look at what happened roughly a year ago.
This month last year, Lucas knew how to write some of his letters. Now, I can write out simple three-letter (consonant-vowel-consonant) words and he can actually read them. I haven’t been using any LeapFrog products, just good old-fashioned pen and paper. We've been playing with the rhyming words: cat, hat, rat, etc.
Being the inquisitive kid he is, he’s asking lots of questions like, “How come R-E-D is the word ‘red’ and not ‘read’? Because ‘e’ makes both sounds.”
I better start finding good answers to his questions, because I can tell that there will be plenty more where that came from.
