Last week we tried the workboxes. They didn't work out to well. I so need to find something, anything that works for focusing this kid, even for a day. He loves games--computer, WII, XBOX, you name it he loves it. First thing this morning he asked about playing one. I told him as soon as his learning was done he could. He asked what he needed to do so I made a list for him of everything I wanted to do with him today. He was excited about having a list and being able to check it off.
And surprise it worked. Must take after his parents. We love lists.
We were able to do a lesson in Right Start math.
We played a game with the movable alphabet. I spelled a word, then he read it and spelled it again.
For art he drew this picture of the ocean. He included swordfish, sharks, plants, rocks, seahorses, and garbage--realistic touch. The #50 in the picture is the number of babies the seahorses are going to have.
Played outside, and yes it did my heart good to see him in this position.
In this pic he is telling me that his lego creation is not a spaceship that tranforms into a spider, rather it IS a spider spaceship. Geez.
This was his idea of a fun game this evening. He lined his toys up and asked me to point to the smallest, the taller one, the next tallest, etc.
And he was able to play his game.
It felt good to feel like we accomplished something today.
