Summer holidays

Summer’s over. And school is starting. Soon the playground and galleries and museums will be quiet and we can go play in them.

Today has been a little odd. We’re looking at school applications (we always consider applying because one day it might be the best thing to do) and using computers. Mathletics, Reading Eggs, DuoLingo and they’re lobbying for MathSeeds as well.

I’ve been using DuoLingo myself. I’m starting as a beginner in French and German and keeping slightly ahead of the children.

The eight year old is still adamant that she can’t read. It’s just that sometimes she knows what a written word is. And another one. And maybe sometimes all the words in a book. And she says them aloud. But she definitely can’t really READ. Nope.
