It's a really cute book. So today we cut out words from magazines. Once we had a good stack we sorted them into piles: noun, verbs and other (I did tell them what they were preposition, adjective, adverb, etc... but we didn't seperate them completely or I would have lost Cale's attention). Then they set to work making sentences by picking a noun and a verb and adding from there.
Here's Cale's final product. His favorite was the top one: "Go wash the car with chocolate". Then for their writing they copied thier sentences. Rylan wrote all his. And Cale wrote the above sentence twice. The first one ended up looking like this: Gowashthe carwith choc olate. So I rewrote it again and he copied it again with proper spacing.
We've been having handwriting troubles with Cale and I think I have finally found something that has him showing much improvement. Ground, grass and sky paper. He was having a lot of trouble staying anywhere near the lines and his letters were all over the place his a's looked like q's since he would drop them so far, but it was amazing how neat he is writing just using this paper!
