Sid and the Van
I am Sid.
I can fix a van.
The van had a bad fan.
The fan hit the van.
I can tap a pin into the fan.
I see bits on the fan.
With a rag, I got rid of the bits.
I did fix the van.
I have always been impressed with Brynnon's ability to pick up on sequential information. I had no idea why, and still do not completely understand it, but it works for him and that is all that matters! AVKO Sequential Spelling has taken him so far in Spelling... I wish he could Read the words he Spells. The brain is a complex and amazing organ. The only answer I have as to why he can Spell a word and not Read it is his wires are missing. His cognitive disability makes it impossible to make that connection. I learned the most from this video I found on you tube while researching Fragile X. It is 80 minutes long and I have watched it a few times. I think about this video all the time as I teach Brynn. What was so frustrating to me before, now makes sense!
Brett is doing wonderful with his Reading. He read Fox on Stage by James Marshall this week. He is enjoying Reading more with each new story. I am using AVKO Sequential Spelling with him as well. I think it's a great program for anyone! Brett has taken a fondness to Brandon's Electric Guitar. He is spending a lot of time with it lately.
Abigail is up to 23 pounds, not bad from 4.11 at birth. She is getting so big... She is counting everything and singing... Such a happy little girl. What a blessing she has been! She is pretty active and is in the habit of staying up way too late with me watching Brynn... If she sees Brynn move on the monitor she will say uh oh Brynn okay. Children learn so much, even when we think we are not teaching them!
