Reading for Little Guy - still trying valiantly
I ask Little Guy to "write a list" so we can go to the supermarket to get what he needs. He draws the pictures and I write the words.
This supermarket is really kid-friendly. Little Guy has his own card to collect stamps on. Once he has ten stamps (from ten visits) he'll get a little present.
The lady on the checkout gives Little Guy the receipt and helps him load up his shopping in his eco-tote bag. She's incredibly kind and patient.
When Noodle gets home from school he walks in the front door, spots the poster and immediately signs up as though it's a completely normal thing to do. Little Guy is hiding and jumps out shouting "Gingerbread Man!!" like you would if it were a surprise party.
All in all a fun day and hopefully some of it will stick in Little Guy's mind.
