Anyway, Mister has had some setbacks in reading and we were both frusterated. He wasn't enjoying his work and I truthfully I wasn't enjoying working with him. There was something wrong with that picture because he is suppose to love school. The last thing I want to do is to turn his love for learning into a chore.
After some trial and error I found he loves to be an illustrator or author and illustrator. In the three weeks we have been working on books, his reading has soared. Ladybug has taken a renewed interest in learning new words and reading harder books. The best part is these books are totally customizable. Sometimes I have Mister and Ladybug add their own ideas, sometimes I have them practice writing a word, and sometimes I just have them illustrate their book. Each time they create a book, they read it to my husband right before bed.
