Family HE Meeting

We went along to our first family meeting today. It was nice to meet up with other HE people and have a talk. When we got home Abbie wanted to go straight into doing some work and ended up watching a video on circulatory & pulmonary systems.

She is now learning Swedish.

Learning Swedish with Rosetta Stone

Her account of the day is coming soon.


Joint/Duo Reading

We have started reading today. We decided on a new strategy, a version of joint reading which we named duo reading. We have had a copy of  Blitzcat by Robert Westall for a number of years and we then found The Robert Westall Box Set but kept the single copy. So now either me or my husband have one copy and A has the other. We read a page and she follows, then it’s her turn. This enables us to point out when she either adds words in or misses them out (which she does on a regular basis).

We have also found that she is more likely to ask about words that she doesn’t know the meaning of.
