Dyslexia a new look at it

I wanted to take a moment and share something with everyone. This past month I have just been blown away by my daughters academically growing. Now when we watch TV she runs up all excited and points out the sight words she recognizes. As a person who is dyslexic, I do not remember ever having those same enjoyments when it came to reading. It was such a struggle and still is for me, that it truly astounds me, and bewilders me all at the same time. I absolutely enjoy being a part of it, for me it’s a blessing. Simply because I reading and phonetics are so different for me. To be able to be a part of “normal” phonics and comprehension is truly wonderful and a learning gift all in its own.


As a person who is dyslexic, I cannot begin to tell you how much it opened my eyes. I have a new understanding of dyslexia and all thanks to my wonderful daughter. I am very grateful.

Count & Clip Cards


I have found so many very cute types of these, all over the internet. Unfortunately it takes a lot more looking and research to find ones that meet the two requirements that we had.
1.) Numbers above 10
2.) Free
Now why I found like I said, all kinds. Characters from every big kids movie, to cars, trucks, princesses, butterflys and flowers, etc. How ever most of them all cost money.

So with some time,  I settled on these.

Counting with Beans & Noodles


Good morning,  another counting thing we have done is these counting with beans and noodles.

I took two large size green construction papers and taped them together. I than made one inch columns going down both pieces of the papers. I than about one and half inches from the bottom up, made a line.


Starting with 1 and wrote a number in each box. Lil and I than sat down with a pile of beans and a pile of uncooked noodles. I would have her count out loud as I had the same amount of glue dots as the number written in the columns. I than would count out loud as she placed either a noodle or bean on the glue dots I had made.
