I have been researching how to teach a right-brained thinker....this year is full of new experiences. The world of APD (audio processing disorder) Dyslexia and Dysgraphia is cloudy and hard to grasp. So many claim to have just the right program to help my kids.... How do I know which really is the right one? Well, it will be through trail and error, with lots of prayer. We are starting HERE . Hopefully our new reading program will be here soon. At this point I am totally up for suggestions, does anyone know what I should be doing???
Well, in the mean time, we have been learning! The boys just mastered the first level of Hooked on Phonics for this year, L just mastered a whole grade level of math and is excited to move on, She also decoded and read a book for her ES yesterday.....a tough feat for a kids with APD, she is SOOO proud :)
S had a sick day yesterday and in between naps had fun making collages with found objects.
T is working on a timeline of Noah and the flood
we started a timeline for this years Mystery of History, not quite a masterpiece, but we are having fun :)
We are enjoying the solar system with Apologia, currently we are studying the Sun
I am determined to make this year fun for all of the kids. I cried for 2 days after getting L and S tested for learning disabilities, then I woke up and realized that God didn't make a mistake on either of them, the are perfectly how he created them, and just how I love them! I never want them to feel dumb or behind, just loved, nurtured and creative. Seriously what could be better than being a right-brained thinker :)
