We got these new mini-whiteboards with lines on them and a place to draw a picture. Skeeterbug likes to draw pics to go with his dictated sentences. These are perfect for it, and he gets more practice writing on lines which is something he has needed. (The spelling words for this sentence were ‘who’ and ‘napping’. I never knew there was a rule for when to double the consonant before adding a vowel suffix! One syllable, one vowel, one consonant at the end. I’m learning too.)
This picture isn’t flipped, he actually decided to write backwards. Very proud of himself. 🙂
Here’s our board now that we have added all the suffix tiles for All About Spelling Level 3. A bit crowded, but still works for building words with the tiles.
Jitterbug will be starting All About Reading Level 1 soon. I opted to use a separate board for him so all the extra tiles won’t confuse him. I have a large whiteboard that will fit all the letter tiles across the top. He’s ready to read but a bit disappointed I can’t teach him in just one lesson!
