The young mind is an amazing thing, especially when you get to witness the light bulb go on.
My 5 year old grandson is an emerging reader. We're just about finished with the Kindergarten version of Hooked On Phonics. He was getting the hang of it but not fully putting all together, until very recently.
He spelled out "HOTWHEELS" with magnetic letters and numbers. He did this without any help or looking at a Hotwheels toy or logo.
He said he used the "X" because it was the closest to the letter "H," which there was only one of, and an upside down "3" because it looked the closest to an "E." I never would have thought to do any of that.
I need to buy more magnetic letters and numbers. I hope my refrigerator exterior can accommodate more words.
I had a scheduled doctor's appointment today, and had him look at my toe while I was there. It's not broken, and if it was they couldn't really do much for it, other than tape it to the other toe. It's just bruised.
