Minding Our P's and Q's...
Anyway, Madison's pre-school class is learning to form the letters of the alphabet, and some of this has been a bit difficult for Madison. That's where this MiMi comes in. I worked in first grade for 15 years, so I've had lots of experience with teaching handwriting! Maddie's mom asked me if I'd be willing to help Madison with her handwriting. The prospect of helping Madison was a win/win situation for me. First of all, I'd get some one-on-one time with Madison, and second of all I'd be doing what I love best--teaching!
It was slow going at first, but Madison and I seem to have hit our stride now. She's improving with every session, and she and I have a good time playing a game of her choice afterward. That girl loves to play games--and if I don't watch her, she'll try to cheat! Ha Ha
So, the next time you hop over here for a visit, and you don't see a recent post--I just might be helping Madison with her p's and her q's...or her b's and d's! Or we could be in the middle of a game of "Candyland" or "Who Stole the Cookie". Fun times for sure!
