Grandma’s School Day # 13

When Armon arrives at 9:30 he goes to his desk immediately and is ready to study. It’s great.

Armon’s reading improved today over yesterday. Thank You, Lord. It was a good story of Sally and Spot getting into the cupcakes and their messy faces! We had a good laugh over their antics.

We worked on vowels and consonants and math addition. These all come easily for him. We still need to work on focusing. He has a problem there.

In Aunt Lorraine’s book he copied some of her words but then he wrote out words on his own and was very proud! I was proud of him too.

He’s learning the coins and what each one is worth. We taped each one to a card and he wrote the worth underneath all on his own! Did I mention I’m proud of him???

    Hearing your stories brings back memories of my first days of teaching. I absolutely loved watching children come to first grade not knowing how to read and then see them get all excited about learning how to read and do math. I remember Dick, Jane and Spot too, and have a primer or two. In the 80’s I did quite a bit of remedial reading with those books. The books are so different now. Of course they would have to be, to include today’s happenings. There were no cell phones or kindles, or I-pads. Don’t we have the memories to cherish though? Keep up the good work Mrs. Archer. How lucky Armon is to have you.

    Thanks Sue. I love working with him. He does get up set with me sometimes though. I’m just Grandma to him, not Mrs Archer! He’s improving but it’s slow.

    How wonderful of you to take the time and patience to give your grandson this extra teaching. He’ll never forget it and will learn that it’s a joy to learn because Grandma has such a sweet spirit.

      Oh boy, you make me sound so good. I’m not. I’m just me. I try and I do take time with him. Some days I wonder if he’s learning and then other days I’m very encouraged. So I guess only time will tell.
