I dug out the window crayons last night.
Brian works best with novel ideas.
He's not a sit at a desk kind of learner (like 90% of children).
Look at our art work.
Yes, that is my handwriting on Ratatouille and Dreamworks, but he told me how to spell them, letter by letter.
Then he wrote "MCR" on the bottom.
That's where his sitter does her figure skating and has brought Brian to once.
My child is not a phonological speller and may never be. But that kid has got memory skills like no one has realized. I know it. They haven't tapped into it yet and I'm determined to. That's how he is going to learn.
Furthermore, look at his trains. I have never seen him independently draw trains. The one on the right has a tiny "1" on it under the smokestack and he told me it was "Tommy". He then went and put a "5" on the other and said it was "James". He also wrote "T"s by both of them for "train".
He is so smart.
And I wish EVERYONE would see that.
