Today we looked at some of the letters and worksheets in Sing, Spell, Read, Write, but we certainly were "not the slave[s] of words." Isaiah took a great interested and did identify some letters, but quickly moved on. I took his lead and answered his questions, but did not require him to go beyond his level of interest. He actually likes to look through the box and look for meaningful letters. By meaningful letters I mean letters that are used to spell familiar words such as his and his brother's names. We also toyed with making some simple three letter words by switching around letters.
I also rearranged the house to accommodate Isaiah and Owen a bit more. We had our house on the market and everything seemed to revolve around house showings; I moved toys and books to more convenient and kid-friendly places.
