Blue boy came from school pretty excited. His first words were "Teacher isn't ready to teach me to read yet."
Two weeks ago, His Kindergarten teacher had a Home Visit and one of the first things Blue Boy asked Mrs W. was "When do I get to learn how to read". She just smiled at him and said "We are going to learn all about bugs!"
So what's the deal here? I understand there are 15 or somesuch kids in his class and she has to follow her curriculum, but can't she just print cat on a paper for him and say "This is cat" ?
This afternoon (First day of school was only 9am-11am)(lol.)( Time 9-11, Date 9-11) he sat at the table and had me write different words on paper for him to read. He can read and recognize about twenty words. Simple words, like "the" , "stop", "that", "sit".
When Rainbow Man started school, Blue Boy was three. He learned all of RM's sight words before RM did, and then taught himself more. He could not speak yet, so we would spread the flash cards out on the floor. Where is "this" we would say and Blue Boy would point without hesitation to the right word. Rainbow Man's kindergarten teacher told us that BB needed to be put in a special school, but I resisted.
He is just a normal little boy. He just wants to read!
On the way home he asked me what days he will go to school. I told him Tuesday's and Thursday's (and every second Friday) but that he doesn't go to school on Monday and Wednesday.
"I wonder why they decided to call it Whensday 'cus now no one knows when it is!"
I promise to quit making this into an All Blue Boy All The Time Blog.
