When Megan gets home today we will pre-read the chapter together.

I will post "Vocabulary Words to Know" on our white board and she will practice spelling them.
As a family we all try to use the vocabulary words and point out when we do.

Words to work on this week:


I found with a simple google search this website to help with the vocabulary that also offers tests and flashcards.


You can also find the story through Think Central.  They also use Think Central at school. It will read her the story.

I am finding the most important aspect of my daughter's education is having something modified for her appropriately. I am also finding that doing pre-work at home also helps.

So with that being said I wanted to start sharing what I am doing at home to help Megan be included with her peers in English and hope that this somehow helps others.

The class uses 5th Grade Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Journey's.
 I am starting with the Lesson 4: Double Dutch

First we watched the show Sister Sister: Season 4 Episode 19 Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3

Megan does well visually, so if I can find a SpongeBob episode or Austin and Ally episode so she can relate that is the key.

She also needed to understand Sequential Order.

I wrote a short story that she could relate to on our white board at home to help her understand the concept.

Megan was born. (2003)
Megan learned to walk. (2006)
Megan went to school. (2007)
Megan met her best friends Emily and Maria. (2009)
Megan and her best friends aren't at the same school anymore. (2014)

We talked about the dates and how the story went in order of what happened.

We read the story together and then on our Chromecast we watched the following Youtube Videos:
