So, in honor of Drew's first spelling test, I am taking this opportunity to brag about my smart little boy....enjoy!!
So, one day, I was drawing pictures of animals on the driveway. I remembered what Tania, our speech therapist suggested and I started writing the words to identify each of the animals. Drew, of course, thought that was great! He just went around reciting all of the letters. That night at dinner, I was telling Spencer about the drawings. As an afterthought, I asked Drew if he remembered how to spell "cow". He did. Ok, I was a little surprised, but "cow" is pretty easy to spell. He then spelled "horse", "pig", "sheep", "rooster" and every other word that I wrote on the driveway. It was amazing. I then started thinking about those "Baby Einstein" flashcards that he loved so much. So, I started to quiz him on those...yup, you guessed it... he could spell most of those cards too.
In honor of this big occasion (the first spelling test), I went through Drew's baby box and found some "memories".
My dad introduced Drew to the computer, Christmas 2004.
30 months old
He did this all by himself, with the exception of some space bar help. He'd either not press it at all, or hold it down forever.
I found the printout in his box.
This was the first piece of "art" that Drew brought home when he started preschool at 3 years old. I wonder if his teachers were surprised. ;)
Wow, it was fun finding all of these things and thinking about how far Drew has come. It does make me really wish that I blogged back then, but it is fun to reminisce.
Great job Drew!!!
