update

well, after having 16 kids around on monday, (i know, sucker for punishment right?!), a mix of kindy friends and new school friends, Xander has settled back into the school routine, albeit a bit clingy at mat time.
But no tears since Monday morning, which i'm relieved with! And he is onto his second writing goal - now using his word card all by himself to find the words to write his sentence/story! He is so proud we have stuck the little notice on his wall above his desk.

Last night we read his readers, then practiced writing a few words without looking at them - he has to know all his 'pink' words inside out before he can move onto the 'red' ones.
You know, those little words we take for granted but are so difficult for beginner readers - said, and here, are the two he is struggling with. But i thought it odd that the word 'a' is not anywhere on the word card. Whenever i ask him when i point it out in a book what it is he says the letter a, not the word 'a'. Tricky!

But he is getting there and very proud of what he is achieving.

And yes Amy, we will come for a visit as Xander has been asking to, so perhaps expect us one morning next week!
