Re: Using MFW K with a child on the spectrum?

My son doesn't have an official diagnosis but what he does have looks very similar to PDD-NOS. All three times I've used MFW K, I've used it following 100 Easy Lessons and it works very well. 100 Easy Lessons, like MFW K emphasizes teaching letter sounds before names to avoid confusion. I understand...

Re: adding to K?

I just wanted to say I'm glad you posted this question. I have one of those daydreamers too. She's exactly like me. Even down to her curly hair.

I just covered them with contact paper. I think, iirc, that my oldest DD actually did it for me. She liked doing that sort of thing back then, so I let her. :) I had her cover all the blue cards and the alphabet song "sheet". The blend ladder and vowel cards (I left the vowel cards intact) were not ...
