Homeschooling Woodjie.

Woodjie will be nine in about two months and he's autistic.  If he were in public school, he would be in third grade.  I'm showing you some of his best, most neat work.  He really works hard in homeschool.  I accept his best job, certainly, and I do try going over the answers with him and doing corrections.  I always want to encourage him.

It bothers his little sister Rose a bit that she has to do harder work, and more of it.  But I make a great effort to give them assignments that would take about the same amount of time.  Often I will have one child do Reading or English while the other plays Timez Attack or chess on the computer.

  3. Hey, you didn't say too much at ALL. I have been thinking a lot on what you've written and of course you are quite correct - we need to focus on those strengths and value our children just as they are.

    Sometimes we get caught up in things - like what if he never gets how to do a contraction!?? - and we miss the good times. I hope never to do that. :)
