Another way to do AAS 1 in K-8 Curriculum Board Posted March 12, 2014 It sounds like you can adapt this, but maybe adapt it at a slower pace. We use a timer and we only do 15 minutes. I would not add words in if she is already struggling. I understand the visual thing. I can not take in information unless I am looking at it. Don't worry about a lesson a week. Maybe try something like: Day 1 of new lesson give her the spelling cards and set the timer for 15 minutes. Let her look, write, do whatever she needs to absorb the information. Day 2-whenever, set the timer and do 15 minutes a day of the lesson. If she hates the tiles use a dry erase pen or something. If she likes the tiles, one option is to use a baking tray and change the location of spelling. I found that when my daughter is struggling with something, she learns it better if we go crawl into my bed together and cuddle during the lesson. Last day, test on just the words and don't add the sentences back in until she is feeling more positive about spelling.
