More Adapted Learning

Sometimes if the page is too busy with information, I cover the rest of the page with a white paper in order to cut down on distractions and help Wade focus only on one thing at a time.  He is getting much better at this, and usually now I only have to fold the book back so just one whole page is showing.

Marking his hands L and R help him follow the directions for right and left.

The Numicon math manipulatives are wonderful for visual learners.  And the Smart Start writing paper has greatly help him understand how to fit the letters and numbers in between the lines.  We say that capital letters start at the sky and go down to the grass, and the small letters start at the fence (the middle line).  The pictures of the sun and flower and the different colored lines are a tremendous help for him.

One task is to completely cover the 100 square pegboard with a variety of shapes.  
He learned to do this more quickly than I would have guessed.

Another fun project is using the cuisenaire rods to make patterns and pictures.

Sometimes being Superman helps the work go better.

And, of course, if all else fails, wearing a bag marked Oxford on your head will help with the process of osmosis.
