Abbey Reading & Spelling Using Edmark and Proloquo2Go…so far, so good!! She’s a reader!!

Abbey is working on a reading curriculum at school called Edmark and seems to be doing well, so I thought it would be good if I could do something over Christmas break to keep working on her reading and spelling.

I googled Edmark and found some great stuff to print out at home, to work on her words at home.  She’s actually on words 11-20 right now, but I know that there are a lot of other words she is reading and can spell, this is just a way to keep track, let her show us what she knows and work on words that she doesn’t know…but especially work on her typing words into her communicating app, hopeful that this will lead to more communication! 

Here’s a video of us working on the stuff I printed out, just day one!  I’ll try to do some more videos as we do more.

P.S.  I found the printable on a site called http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/.  Some were free and some were a few dollars.  They have all of the Edmark words to work on in many different ways.  They have lots of great stuff!:)

Day 12: My Autism Video Diary – It’s Alien DNA! Humor Saves the Day with my Struggling Learners!

Ok, here’s another homeschooling post about my boys.  Our DNA project turned out to be pretty hard for them…but how do we get through tough days?  Humor!

What’s interesting is that, although, the type of humor is different, this works a lot of the time with Abbey too!  She has a very different and unique sense of humor, as do my boys, but it gets us through some tough things and helps us have FUN together!!
