New game alert! Okay, I found a website that has a ton of math games and all you need are Uno cards! This was a game called "Snappo". Basically, you lay out your cards one at a time and have to match the pairs that add up to 10. It was a great game to practice addition, and of course you could take some cards away and change the numbers, or switch over to subtraction. We really enjoyed this.
You see the winner's pile! (I normally don't let my children beat me in card games but I made an exception!)

This is a 3-minute video of Brianna reading one of her Orton-Gillingham books:
This video is 2 1/2 minutes long. Almost every night, Bri makes up a song at bedtime. I always wish I had my camera to tape her. This particular night, I did! I really hope you can understand her. We were trying to be quiet so we didn't wake up Hunter in the next room. For some reason I got tickled about something she said so I was trying to hold in my hysterical laughter and keep quiet, which resulted in lots of snorting while laughing! I apologize for that! (I was leaving for the beach with some girls from church the next day, which is what she is talking about at the end)
