Nearly a year later, Elliott had not forgotten. The child remembers everything. EVERYTHING. So here we go on Letter of the Week, Round 2. I think we made it through H the second time. We just couldn't get into it. He already knew his letters and their sounds, and while he liked the activities, my execution wasn't the greatest. His primary goal was to finish the tree, preferably as quickly as possible. I didn't mind skipping 18 weeks of this...

I finally decided that since he enjoyed making the tree more than anything, I was determined to let him finish it. We borrowed the DVD from the library, watched it a few times, read the book several more, and he completed the tree one afternoon. It's on the playroom/schoolroom door now. He is proud of his homemade coconut tree, and I'm happy it's finished. Well, except we still have to read the book. We both have it memorized though, so now I make him "read' it to me!
