But, he's almost done. Just twelve words to put in alphabetical order, and I taught him the process: How many A words? None? What's the next letter? B? How many B words? One? Write it down. Cross it out. What's the next letter? C? How many C words? Two? What's the second letter? Which one comes first? OK, write them down, cross them out, and what's the next letter?
And he thought it was going to be tough. He does fine with things as long as there's a process he can follow. He does his math that way, the subtraction he hasn't memorized: 14 - 5? 14 - 0 = 14, 14 - 1 = 13, 14 - 2 = 12 ... .
I don't think he's getting PS2 time today, because he didn't do his work at school the way he was supposed to.
