During quiet time today, I was teaching Squdge lesson 4 of Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons. Since the twins will be 5 in just three months, I figured now was a good time to start to learn to read.
At the end of each lesson, they practice writing a couple letters. It's a nice gentle way to ease them into handwriting along with practicing the sounds they learn to read.
Squdge's letters and handwriting skills are atrocious. I usually have to hold his hand with my hand and guide him through. (Tater is this way too.)
Today he made a HUGE "S" after I modeled a couple lowercase letters for him.
I said, "Squdge, I don't want you to make a giant one. Make a little one like mine."
He said, "I'm making a force field for them!"
