Well I am little bummed today. Dakota has had three episodes over the last week and half that I have suspected are seizures. Well today I realized Dakota is also on blood pressure meds so I took him to the Doctor. Well turns out was not the meds but Dakota is having seizures Our new neurologist appointment is booked out to April. I am having my Doctor call them and we shall see what happens we maybe able to get in sooner. The good thing is he doesn’t appear to be sick and blood pressure was good. So now it’s a waiting game.
Tell Time is a great app for teaching kids ages 4 – 9 how to tell time. I was pretty impressed with what I saw in this app as while as my son using this app.
I really like how this breaks up telling time into 8 different engaging lessons. What really impressed me was that the lesson is set up to be read and has different detailed examples. If your child really listens to the listens which are direct at to the point they learn different ways of telling time. Using a regular clock with big hand and little hand, and an analog clock. I like how it showed the big hand and little hand. I like that they use words such as o’clock, half past the hour, if the big hand is on the 6 and little hand is on the 2 what time is it?.
I finally found a math game that was geared towards my sons like. There are other math games that he likes but this one tops them all. It’s called Operation Math. It’s really neat because you are kinda like a spy on a mission to Defeat Dr Odd. Dr. Odd is on a global quest to eliminate the world’s even numbers. Now we can’t let that happen. So it’s your job to stop him. You will seek out his secret bases, destroying his menancing mainframes, and make the world a safer place for math.
Well I have noticed that Dakota is having a hard time with Math once again. Not sure where we are going wrong but it’s like he learns and forgets it right away. I know part of this is from the autism. It’s a little frustrating at times going forward and then falling two steps behind. I really like the Math that the school uses but I have to put that on the back burner.
My son Dakota has High Functioning Autism. Most of you who follow me already know that. This year I decided to homeschool my son considering how stressed he was at school. Yes the school did try to be creative and they really did try to accomodate him. However it just wasn’t enough to rid the stress and anxiety of being at school.
