Really? Rice. I think he threw it out....
Alanz.. a week of dancing is a loooong time for a 6 year old. Wow. Well done her.
Better get this one up before you know who comes back to post..... though to be fair .. she was in fits too.
Hayden was at her Speech Therapists a few weeks ago learning to say and recognise conjoined vowels, etc.... thing is that alot of the older books have words that we dont use alot these days OR that H is still catching up on as since her speech was so limited for so long we used different words that she could say or simpler English, so Lorna is always thorough and makes sure she understands what the word means and how to use it in a sentence.
She was learning "e-r" and "u-r" and some others and the rules as to when to use which vowels when and then putting them in words. Now to test her understanding she does a whole lot of "nonsense" words and "real" words. Haydens condition means that her brain doesnt function easily with words that arent already wired into her brain so she gets stuck on an unrecognised word, hence the nonsense words and how to apply the rules of speech.
So as you can imagine her sessions are very intense and she works hard at them.
Lorna: So do you think thats a real word or a silly word Hayden?
Lorna: No Hayden. Blurt is a real word... it means ... it means when something just comes out before you can stop it. You just BLURT out something. Can you use it in a sentence for me?
Hayden: Ohhhhhhhhh... yes. This morning I blurted out a fart!
Took us ages to get on with the lesson
Just keep swimming... just keep swimming.. just keep swimming....
