### The week so far; first dictation

Sep. 1st, 2011 12:08 pmOne of the things on today's agenda was Erika's first formal dictation exercise, which went very well!

One of the things I've been doing this year is preparing a math "warm-up" of just a few problems in a little bound notebook for her to do. She wanted to have some easy math to start off the day, and I thought it would be a good opportunity to incorporate review, so that's been a good move for both of us. Though it does mean I have to write out some math problems every night before school!
