One thing I have discovered with Saenz is:
He could not read handwriting -- so we now have the letters down (3 hrs of instruction) with practice tomorrow with paragraph style. Now being dyslexic I understand the difficulties he has and so we have begun slowly. It is my personal goal of having Saenz be at least able to read handwriting by the end of the month. I will post a copy of his newly acquired skill here to ensure I don't get off track.
For those of you who are homeschooling what are some of your resources to teach this skill.
I found worksheets here :
Also, I have each of my sons a 'wipeable -dry erase' practice writing flip book sold at WalMart for $3 each. It makes teaching easy.
What do you all think? A valuble skill or going the way of Saturday mail delivery?
ANOTHER VALUABLE TOOL
