SMH- Cole will do anything as long as he gets to do it at the whiteboard with colored markers.

LOL

He is busily writing out a whole story on the whiteboard to work out subjects and predicates. Do it in his spelling book? Oh, no no no! Do it at the whiteboard? Bring it on!

one of the things I love about HSing!!!

b/c really... does it matter how they choose to learn as long as they are learning?


I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin; it's all a mystery.

That's exactly what I asked myself. What does it matter as long as he learns something? 8)

The only *problem* is that now he wants to get a notebook to write out his new story instead of doing Math. And you know what? I said, 'Go for it!'

Then the whiteboard it is!!!  My youngest is only willing to do her addition if she gets to use straws as counters....so that is what we do. 

We have to let them use what they are comfortable with as long as the work is getting done.

 That is totally my 6yo!!  He loves that white board.  I needed writing for him for our portfolio last year, so I started taking pictures of the white board with my digital camera.  Our evaluator was not impressed, but It proved he was writing!

Whatever works!!  LOL
