I don’t think I told you about it here but I’ve been doing Hooked on Phonics with The Goon Squad.
Since they started Kindergarten I have been sort of neglectful. Their teacher have been doing a great job and they have both been making huge leaps in reading and writing.
Since the weather gods have clearly decided that my children are to be home schooled this month I decided to pull out the HOP box and see how much progress the twins have make in Kindergarten.
It turns out that they are reading really well. They have got the three letter words down pat and they are getting better with sight words (you know, she, what, is, the, etc.) and they are even doing well with the stories.
Then the little book threw us a curve ball.
Or should I say passed us a curve ball?
The sentence was “Tim can pass.”
Ian got the “Tim” and he got the “can'” and then he got stuck.
I said “Sound it out.”
“Paws? Paz? Pahs?”
Against my better judgment I did what I knew would help him.
“What sound does A-S-S make?”
“What word have I been telling you that you weren’t allowed to spell anymore all week?”
He read the word, followed by hysterical laughter and saying the word ass over and over and over until I threatened him with a nap.
And there you have it. The mother of the year award, bring it to me.
Oh yeah, that is his thumb.
