What I love Now - 12/05/2012
So, I haven't posted much about school-related topics recently, mostly because we've moved and Monkey has been on vacation. But now, we're back to work! Anyway, when I was packing up stuff, I noticed this old reader that my mother-in-law had collected at some point.

When Monkey is reading something to me and stumbles over a grammar rule that she doesn't know, I can find that page in the reader and have her run through the drills until she masters the sound combination. Right now, she is working on the "sh" sound, when it applies to other letter combos, like "ti," "si," and "su." In fact, I'm learning from this book because I learned grammar rules by memory, and unpacking them in this way is quite interesting. For example, I knew "tion" says "shun," but I didn't realized it was because of the "ti" as "sh" rule. Only English nerds get this excited about grammar. Ahem. Right now, her skill reading level is quite a bit different from her drill reading level, but I think by the end of the year, if we stick with it, ...
