February 4, 2013

Avery had all day Goddard. He spent some more time in the Forest room. We have decided to put him in for a whole day/half day. Because it is sometimes very hard to go anywhere and come get him at 1:00 or to bring him home at 1:00 and then nap him and get him up to go later. He is a kid who still needs an afternoon nap.

Erika came to give me Naim’s assessment results. I was only ho-hum about what she said. There was no great insight there, and no real plan at least that was spelled out. I don’t mean it was a total waste, it is always good to bring in new people when you have a problem you are not sure how to handle, and Naim likes her coming, too. So I will stay the course, but it was just like, yeah. Okay, tell me something I didn’t know, and more importantly, tell me what to do about it. She still doesn’t really have a grasp on the problems he faces and the extent of them. But I wouldn’t expect her to in such a short time. Naim was evesdropping the whole time, and I knew he would. And since the whole, meet without him bugged me anyway (Nothing about me, without me and such.) I didn’t really care. But it made her do “low voice” and then it was really hard to understand her. Finally she just brought him down, and I was like, why not just do this to begin with? We are not telling him he has cancer here, we are talking about problems that he articulates and understands better than the two of us anyway. She mentioned Aaron as a dominating force and bringing him into therapy, which is probably a good idea. She went off on him not putting himself in a family picture he drew. I asked him about it later and he was surprised that she took it as some big significant thing. He said he just forgot and that he hates to draw and he just wanted to get the picture done, so he probably hurried too much. Probably the truth lies somewhere in-between.

Also, we had drama and art downtown, which went well. I have a few pictures.

For schoolwork, lets see:

  • We read the second book in Discoveries, Spots. Aaron read it and we did the discussion questions and the workbook pages.
  • We did half of Lesson 2 in Ch. 12 of MIF. This was about place value, and slowly, slowly, Naim is beginning to grasp that.
  • Both did 2 pp. of Sylvan
  • Naim did another day of review of Unit 3 in HOP. I thought he needed more work with the short u sound.
  • Aaron did the worksheets for Lesson 3 in HOP
  • Naim did the worksheets, practice book and workbook pages for horizontal lines in ZB
  • Aaron did i in HWT.

    Aaron took these of Naim's class. I don't know what they do in there, but they seem to have a lot of fun.
