Standing and reading
Eli is working on walking. There has just been this subtle change in the way that he holds on to things and people – it’s lighter. Yesterday he was standing and Donné gently let go of him with the intention that he sit down, but instead of the usual plop to the ground, he just stood there. 5….10….still going strong, and then plop, his legs gave way. Now just to coordinate those feet.
Feedback from school is that Grace wants to read. She doesn’t want to work through all the building blocks that lead up to reading, she just wants to read. She did manage to get a list of words to practice, all words ending in “ot”, like pot, cot, lot, etc. which she can sound out. I think she will really love being able to read.
