That is, until now!
Josh has issues with anything sticky, dirty, wet...well you get the picture! The whole Wet, Dry, Try lesson was a big mistake to use with him. And he immediately was frustrated and disliked the whole thing. And, unfortunately, I was too persistent since I knew it was such a good program. Well, eventually, I backed off and put everything but the wooden pieces away. These I left on our writing shelf, but still, he ignored them.
- Build letter with wooden pieces (talking about lines and curves as we go).
- I write the letter in the sand tray then he writes the letter in the sand tray.
- Finally he writes the letter on the wipe board. (could use paper but he likes the Yoda Wipe board!)
This worked really well and we did a-f! (Hmmm, but Shannon those are lowercase letters and HWT does not have lowercase???) Check here ~ Lowercase wooden pieces and letter cards! This guy makes these in a warehouse here in town! He also has a teacher store with some cool finds!
So anyway, I am thrilled and he was happy to be so successful writing the letters correctly.
*******Here is a picture of the lowercase wooden pieces...being used to make a treehouse...well, you know....
