Letter writing.

I have nothing to say about today.  Yup, nothing.

We did math....played with some computer games on the computer, one being Letter Generator.

Kid composed a letter to his Grandpa back in Ottawa.  It was like pulling teeth.  Basic simple sentences.  It's going to be a challenge to get thoughts on paper this year but we're going to keep at it and make it as fun as possible.  We put the letter in an envelope and mailed it straight away.  I always like to keep stamps in the house for that very reason.

I'm excited to meet the teacher on Tuesday - so many questions I have!!

And, tutoring starts again in 2 weeks. We're working with a great Orton-Gillingham tutor who has been a good match.  The calendar is pretty packed....I wish we could eliminate tutoring from the mix as it takes up so much time and $$$$ but I'm not sure what other options we have.  The standard spelling programs are in no way helpful for his boy of mine.  He can do the comprehension parts and the mixing and matching for definitions and sentences etc. but as for learning to spell the words or applying the spelling rules there is little to no retention.  

We'll see what the year brings.
