It's midweek... MX and I were working on her homework from her Little Bear Club.
I went through some words that beings with the 'i' sound with her but I could only manage a few that starts with that sound... e.g. igloo, iguana, ink...
So, I decided to go ahead and introduce some long vowel 'i' to her... e.g. island, ice-cream, ice...
So, when we were ready to start drawing some pictures
that starts with the 'i' sound...
Me: Ok, what can you draw for the letter 'I'?
So Mx drew an iguana.
Me: What is another picture that you can draw for the
Mx: I am tired.
me: Just a minute, we are gonna be done soon.
Mx: I AM TIRED.... 'I', 'I', 'I'
Me: Oh! 'I am tired' starts with the letter 'I'!
So, I helped her spell what she wanted and completed
her work; along with a little note to the teacher in case
she hits the roof.
