ByGrace3 Posted March 7, 2012 Share Posted March 7, 2012 We were supposed to move onto AAS 3 this week but my 2 yo great nephew is staying with us for the week and I decided to put that on hold. I went to review the last 2 steps of AAS 2 with her yesterday (she really struggled with these when we did them and we spent a lot of time on them), I thought she had gotten it and we moved on. Well, not so much apparently. She is a rules kid, likes the rules, thrives on it, part of the reason she has done so well with AAS. The last two steps of AAS 2 are the first real struggle we have had going through the program. I know it because for the first time the "rule" isn't a real rule. (It is AW/AU and OW/OU btw. She gets it right every time if it is at the end of the word, she knows the rule. ;) So what do I do? I don't want to move on when she still mixes them up sometimes, but I am unsure in how to help her get the spellings to stick. We have tried writing them, spelling them orally, using tiles. She does get a lot of them, but I do fear she is guessing on some. But I definitely don't think she is close to mastering the lists. My fear is that this is the beginning of things to come. I mean, spelling rules don't always apply. Suggestions? Thoughts? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
