Beating Dyslexia and Acalculia: A Live Edublox Case Study

Meet Vivienne, an 11-year-old American girl who was adopted from China at age 5½. Her parents have tried many avenues to help her catch up on her development delays. While she made progress in certain areas, her academics continued to lag. They thus embarked on the Edublox program on November 3, 2020. Read the story below, as told by her mom Susan, and visit this page frequently for weekly progress updates:

Vivienne was adopted from China at age 5½ in March 2015. She was born with Tetralogy of Fallot, a rare heart condition caused by four heart defects that result in oxygen-poor blood flowing out of the heart and into the rest of the body. She was diagnosed at age 3 when her lips were turning blue and had open heart surgery in China. She knew no English prior to her adoption, and even her Chinese was simple and not well-pronounced. Sometimes our guides struggled to understand her.

While Vivienne transitioned well into our family, it was a gradual process for her to understand and be able to communicate. She had developmental delays, which are common for orphans and older child adoption, like struggling with motor skills or coordination, and functioning at a younger level than actual age. Yet, we also began to notice unexpected struggles, like when Vivienne became easily confused or disoriented when visiting a family member. We stayed with my sister’s family for almost a week in her large home, and Vivienne continued to get confused with which door to open to find our guest room.

I homeschool my children, so during Vivienne’s first years home, ages 6-7, I could work with her as she was adjusting and learning more English. She completed some speech therapy, as she was often confusing her pronouns (he or she), and she had trouble distinguishing her prepositions like inside/outside or up/down. I worked with her on reading prep and used an excellent phonics-based reading and spelling program, based on the Orton-Gillingham method, that I had used for many years successfully with her older brother. 

Over the next several years, as I continued to work with Vivienne, her struggles became more apparent. I had expected that with time things would just ‘click’ and she would begin to read. Vivienne was able to learn the phonograms and sound them out correctly, yet blending them smoothly into words was slow and difficult. Especially, she confused her b’s and d’s all the time, and she would often read words backwards, like was for saw or on for no. She was way behind her age level, but I was still happy that she was at least making some progress forward, however slow. She still got confused easily, and I would sometimes need to find different ways to instruct her until she could understand. Vivienne greatly struggled to express herself verbally. She would often use simple language to try to get ideas across, or she would ask her sister to tell a story for her, so that she did not have to tell it herself. It was hard to watch her struggle when she could not find the word she was trying to say. She would get frustrated or growl and get upset. Sometimes she would say, “Never mind. Just forget it,” and we would have to encourage her to try again while we sought clues to figure out what she was trying to say.

A sample of Vivienne’s writing, Nov 3, 2020

Through the years, I tried so many things. I switched to another phonics-based reading program that uses a more multi-sensory approach. I sat with her one on one and guided her through the lessons and flashcards. I also enrolled her in online reading programs in an attempt to find something she could do independently for a short time during school while I helped her sister with other subjects. We tried several good programs, some specifically for dyslexia. And she would begin a program well, but as it progressed and became more difficult, I would often have to sit with her for the entirety to encourage or guide her, or it would end in tears. One program was helpful until the spelling portion became stressful and overwhelming for Vivienne. The program would instruct her to spell a word, which she would spell incorrectly. It would encourage her and guide her to the correct spelling. But then, before she could progress, it would retest her on the same word, usually just minutes later. Unfortunately, Vivienne would forget how to spell the word and this process would repeat again and again.

In Math, her struggles were even more severe. We spent months, working almost daily, to teach her to count and write numbers from 1-50. At the end of  2nd grade, she was given a national test, but as she was still learning English as a second language. I gave her a 1st grade test. She scored in the 18th percentile for Math and 39th percentile for Reading. 

Vivienne doing math, Nov 3, 2020

As she got older, we seemed to hit a brick wall with Math. We reached a point of no forward progress. Vivienne was unable to do even basic addition without blocks. She could only do simple addition with blocks or counting on her fingers. We worked and worked for many months on simple addition, using blocks, flash cards, line graphs, or other manipulatives, and she finally learned her +0’s (as in 3+0) and her +1’s (5+1). But no matter what we did, we could not get her to learn her +2’s… only 2+1, 2, or 3. If I said, “What if you had 3 pieces of candy and I gave you 2 more, how many would you have?” Then, she would answer 5, though she may use fingers depending on how large the number I gave her in the example. But if I showed her the numerals 3+2, she did not have any idea. 

More math, Nov 3, 2020

Vivienne had trouble with math language terms such as greater/less than, before/after, and she could not answer what number comes “before” or “after” another number unless she had a number line and me giving her direction. She was unable to express the time on digital clock, for instance if it was 10:27, she would say 10,2,7. I had recently heard of dyscalculia, though I had never seen it before. I did not know what to do or how to help her. I used to tutor Math in college, I help Vivienne’s sister when she needs it, and I taught my son math until he went off to college. So I called our public school board and asked them if I could have Vivienne tested. Unfortunately, they do not diagnose learning disabilities, but they said they could meet with her. At this point, Vivienne had only been home from China for 4 years learning the English language, and the school Special Needs Specialist told me it takes 3-5 years to learn Social Language and 5-7 years to learn Academic Language. Despite this, they tested her at grade level and she scored Very Deficient on every level.

To help Vivienne with math, she began a brilliant online picture math program that helps kids “see” math without all of the words, ST Math. Vivienne progressed through the first level of this program, and she continued to the second level which became more challenging. This did help her some. Recently, however, the program has become too difficult for her, even with me sitting beside her and helping to guide her, so we have had to go back to review the earlier lessons, with me always praying something will ‘click’ this time.

Sometimes, while trying to read or even just looking at a page with printed words, Vivienne would get headaches and tell me everything was blurry.  She would rub her eyes and sometimes her neck. To seek some help, I took her for therapy with a certified Ron Davis Dyslexia Correction Facilitator. The therapist told me that she believes Vivienne has dyslexia and such severe dyscalculia that she would call it acalculic. 

I am so proud of Vivienne. She works so hard, but it can be so exhausting and discouraging for her sometimes. She still gets confused with time, confuses the days of the week or months of the year, and she works diligently to learn something just to sometimes forget it later. So I continue to try to seek things to help her. 

Vivienne is now in the 5th grade, age 11, and I have concentrated my efforts on trying to get her to read fluently and just develop the weak areas of her body and mind. We learned about a therapy that focuses on engaging the brain and body working together, making connections in the brain that were not developed previously, Brain Balance. Vivienne does exercises at home and she attends a center an hour away from our house for therapy three times per week. Since beginning the therapy, my husband and I see progress in Vivienne. She is stronger physically and mentally, able to control her body more and able to express herself and communicate better. But, we realize, she still needs intense intervention with academics. She still confuses her b’s and d’s, though not as much, and still reads backwards sometimes. She loves for me to read to her, but when she picks up a book that interests her and tries to read it herself, she simply skips around to the words that she recognizes, guessing, and getting many wrong. And just the other day I watched Vivienne as she tried to buy a toy with her own savings. She had a $10 bill and a $5 bill. The clerk told her the toy cost $9. Vivienne looked down in confusion, looked back up, and then handed the lady both bills, having no idea that she only needed to give the $10.

I am desperately seeking help for my precious girl. Right now the world is so hard for her. I want her to read, not just small words slowly and painstakingly, but advanced words so that she can communicate effectively, express herself fully, understand the world around her, learn about things that interest her, and live independently, fully capable of doing all that God has planned for her and being who He has designed her to be. I want her to see numerals and understand that they represent numbers of things, so that she can not only count and add and subtract, but so she can handle her own finances and live in this world with numbers all around her with confidence and security.

When I found the first articles on Edublox online, I was instantly intrigued. When I read about Maddie, the girl around Vivienne’s age, who had similar struggles as my girl, who is now reading thanks to Edublox, I began to cry. I have prayed so hard and for so long asking the Lord for a solution. I have asked Him repeatedly to help me help Vivienne. I shared that story and many more with my husband and family. And now we begin this journey with such hope and expectation, having faith that Edublox is going to open up a world for our daughter that we have only imagined for her. We are ready!

With great expectations,



Vivienne reading, Nov 3, 2020

Week 1: Nov 13, 2020

Vivienne began her Edublox program a little over a week ago. It took a few days to adjust to a new routine, but now I think we’ve got it down. I completely replaced her typical homeschool program with Edublox. It was a relief to her to stop some of the online programs that had become so frustrating to her recently. So now, for the most part, we have a new schedule. She does the cognitive Development Tutor first thing, then meets with Desrei, her patient and encouraging Live Tutor, for reading and spelling. Afterwards, we do the assigned homework and exercises, some math counting exercises, and she finishes with more cognitive Development Tutor.

I was thinking this morning before we began school that I am happy with her progress. She is learning new words and vocabulary daily, and the amount of review that she is doing is making a difference. I love the amount of review. It makes sense to me. And I see that reading the words are becoming more automatic for her because of the review. She is beginning to read the familiar words faster as they become ingrained in her.

But while I was already pleased this morning, a couple of things happened during school today that just excited me. After reviewing her assigned words again, I tested her spelling for the words. And she did something I have never seen her do before! When I asked her to spell the words today, for most of them, she spelled them using their letter ‘names,’ not ‘sounds.’ She wrote them down more quickly saying the letters: c-u-p or t-a-p as she wrote. I was so surprised. Vivienne has always managed a good understanding of the phonemes, or individual sounds that make up a word. I could ask her how to spell a short word like these and she could slowly sound them out and manage the spelling. But today, she was fast and just said the letter names and wrote them down and moved on. I kept thinking, that is how I would spell a word for you if you asked me. I would just quickly tell you the letters you need to spell the word. I would not need to sound them out to spell them. This realization just thrills me. 

Another unexpected thing happened in the same review. When I placed two words before Vivienne it just so happened that the words ‘at’ and ‘cat’ were placed beside each other. She looked at them and suddenly became so excited. She told me, “Look! They are the same words, except this one has a ‘c.’ If you add the ‘c’ to this one, they are the same.” I said, “Yes, they have the same endings, so what kind of words are they?” She said, “Rhyming words.” I know this doesn’t seem profound, but the fact is that I have worked with Vivienne countless times on rhyming words. We have used the white board with magnetic letters, keeping the same ending of a word while changing the beginning to show all the possible rhyming words. We have used flip words made of paper, taking a common ending and stapling different beginning letters on top to ‘flip’ and read all the possible rhyming words. I thought she pretty much ‘got it’ back then. But I never saw her have that ‘aha’ moment, that lightbulb moment, like she had today. I was so surprised. It is like something simply connected that had not connected before. 

I am thanking God at the close of this school day. I am excited and hopeful about where all of this is going to go for my girl.

Week 2: Nov 20, 2020

I am so excited about the continuous progress that Vivienne is making! I have never seen her progress so far and so fast. Desrei, her Live Tutor, works with her every day, and then I work with Vivienne doing review, exercises, and math counting. All of the review is making reading the words more automatic for Vivienne. I cannot believe she is reading so many words fast and automatic. She sees them and knows them right away. She will still slowly sound out the unfamiliar words, but as she becomes increasingly familiar with them, she reads them with more speed and confidence. 

Today, when I reviewed Vivienne’s words with her, she was able to read all 90 words that I gave her. Then, I tested her spelling of the words, and I was amazed. She only misspelled 4 words… so she got 86 spelling words correct! She even spelled words like “which” and “then” correctly. It honestly blew me away! 

She enjoys doing the exercises assigned to her. It is definitely helping her with direction and identifying her b’s and d’s without switching them around. What I also see is that as she follows the symbols or letters during the exercises, she is beginning to track them better and keep her eye in the correct place on the page. I used to have to show her with my finger where she was supposed to be, but now I can stand back and let her do it herself. I am thrilled. It is such a blessing just to see her make steps towards independence. She is happy with her progress, too! 

Week 3: Nov 27, 2020

This week we celebrate our American holiday, Thanksgiving, and it has given me time to reflect on those things for which I am most thankful. I am thankful that I found Edublox after so much searching for the key to Vivienne’s learning. I feel like I have found the answer. I know we have a very long way to go, but as she continues to learn to read words and spell them correctly, I know we are on the right path.

I am thankful for the Live tutoring that she is receiving. I love how Desrei is the one who introduces the new words to Vivienne and they work through them together. That point is the most challenging for Vivienne, because the words are unfamiliar. Then, according to Vivienne’s Edublox plan, I later begin to work with Vivienne on reviewing those same words, but now they are review words and familiar. She is not seeing them for the first time. And I am so grateful for that. It makes my job easier. I get to be on the end of her greatest success, when she begins to quickly read through the words and is so proud of herself. That is not just a relief; it is a gift!

I am thankful that she is starting to notice written words around her in the world, and she is trying to read them for herself. She used to say, “I can’t read,” and would not even try. This week she tried to read the words printed on the t-shirt I was wearing. Words that she had never shown an interest in before. It is exciting. And I am thankful that she is just beginning the Math tutoring through Edublox. Math has seemed insurmountable for Vivienne at times, but I am hopeful that this will help. Thank you, Edublox!

Week 4: Dec 4, 2020

Vivienne continues to read new words. She is reading words like thrash and shrill! And spelling correctly words like blush and fresh! It simply amazes me.

Repetition is so important with the words, and I realized, it is also important with the exercises as well. With the Thanksgiving holiday, she had several day off of the exercises, and when we started them back this week she actually made a few mistakes with her b’s and d’s again and got off track on the page. It revealed to me how critical that repetition is to getting things ingrained in her permanently. Now that we are back on track, her accuracy has improved.

As far as Math, here is a copy and paste from a text I sent a friend of mine the beginning of this week. Since then, Vivienne has continued to add even higher numbers than these: 

I have to share what I call a miracle: Today Vivienne told me: 4+4=8; 4+3=7; 4+2=6; and 3+3=6!! And she counted backwards from 30 to 1 using her fingers. We had gotten up to 20 and back… but now they had us work on 30 and back… and she did it! I actually had tears streaming down! I keep thanking God! Most people cannot imagine crying because your child can count backwards from 30 or add 3 + 3!! But it really feels like a miracle after all of these years!

What more can I say?

Week 5: Dec 11, 2020

Vivienne’s spelling test, Week 5

I am so happy with Vivienne’s continuous progress. She reads more words now than we ever covered in all our years of effort. She is also remembering how to spell the words. I am thankful that her Live Tutor practices reading and spelling with her daily. I have heard it said with dyslexia sometimes, you just settle with your child learning to read and forget about the spelling, as it is just too difficult. I am so grateful we do not have to settle. 

Another area that I realize is so important this week, beyond repetition, is developing Vivienne’s working memory. Math has always been the greatest struggle for Vivienne, as she could simply not remember the math facts. No matter how often we repeated them, she would not hold the information for long. Now, I am praying that the online Development Tutor, or as we call them the Edublox games, will continue to help develop Vivienne’s working memory. As she is able to remember and hold the information easier, the math facts will begin to stick more. Vivienne now does Development Tutor two times each day putting color blocks in a certain order, and she is indeed slowly getting better at remembering what she has seen or heard. That gives me great hope. 

Week 6: Dec 18, 2020

“Hey Mama, I know what 7+7 is … 14!” I have heard that several times over the last few days! And just a minute ago, after Vivienne repeated that to me I asked her, “Do you know 6+6? 5+5? 4+4? 3+3? 2+2? 1+1?” And she got each answer correct. I can’t believe it! It is exciting to both of us. She is getting it. It can still be challenging for her to remember the facts, but she is remembering more than she ever has before. I am so grateful to her Edublox tutor, for now she has also given me some long-term memory exercises to do with Vivienne to further help her.

At the same time, the list of words she is reading keeps growing longer and longer. I think she is reviewing around 300 words now. She is doing so well that I sometimes almost forget where she was just weeks ago. When her daddy happened to walk in the kitchen while she was reviewing words today, just flying through some of them, he just stopped and watched and said, “That is amazing!” That made me consider again just how far she has come.  

Week 7: Jan 8, 2021.

Is it really just week 7 that we completed? I am blown away. It seems we have been doing Edublox much longer, and Vivienne has made so much progress. We just had almost two weeks off of school for the Christmas holidays, and to help her stay on track, we did review her words and addition cards briefly most days during the break. Grandma got to see her read through all of her cards, and she couldn’t believe it. She saw Vivienne unable to read much smaller and easier words just two months ago. 

Returning to our normal routine this week was a challenge for Vivienne. She especially struggled with counting numbers backwards as we had not practiced that at all over the break. I feel for Vivienne. She has always had to work so hard that school over the years has often come with frustration and tears. Today reviewing words she misread a few of them and began to get upset. I reminded her that she is now reading over 300 words! The stack that was correct was huge. She said, “Over 300 words?!” When she realized that and saw the few cards she had missed, she calmed down completely.

Something amazing happened today. At least it was amazing for both Vivienne and me. She has a new list of words to read. She has only had them for a few days. We are reviewing them in order now and have not yet shuffled them. As I went through the word cards with Vivienne, she began to tell me what word was coming next! I gave her the word “shake,” and she said the next word “chase” before I could even show her the card. And she knew what was coming next and after that. I was shocked! So was she! For a child who has struggled with memory for so long, it was mind blowing. She said to me, “I can’t believe I was guessing it!” I said, “No, you were remembering!” Then she said, “I can’t believe I was remembering it!” And she asked me if I was going to call daddy at work to tell him about it! And I did! He was as thrilled as we were!

Week 8: Jan 15, 2021

Vivienne is just moving right along with reading and spelling. She began a new level of words and quickly reads them correctly. I am so happy with her progress. I hear her in tutoring, and I believe there is also improvement when she sees words for the first time.

Vivienne’s tutor has explained to me that as she is learning, connections are being made in her brain, and I understand that my goal in working with her and reviewing is to help these connections get stronger and stronger. It will take time, but we are prepared for that. I realize that during her two-week break over the holidays, we reviewed her math addition cards, but we did not practice counting backwards. Upon our return, she was okay with the cards, but counting backwards was a big struggle and resulted in some meltdowns. It took several days, but now she is beginning to count backwards again with more ease. I am grateful to Vivienne’s tutor for not only teaching her, but teaching me!

Week 9: Jan 22, 2021

Vivienne has so far learned to read CVC words; the diagraphs sh, ch, th and wh; floss rule words; 29 beginning blends (e.g. bl- and thr-); 15 end blends (e.g. -st and -ct); silent e (eg. man vs. mane); rabbit rule words; a number of non-phonetic words; and is busy learning to read CVVC words. These words are introduced and get reviewed by her tutor, and for homework we continue to review and review and review. It takes time, but the results are worth it. Today as we reviewed all Vivienne’s words, I realized that she just flies through the small easy words now. And still we review to cement those words in her brain and make them automatic to her reading. She is doing so well! Her new words are more difficult and sometimes she gets words like ‘were’ and ‘where’ mixed up, but she continues to progress and master more and more words. I love it! And she tells me her favorite time is spelling review!.

In Math, we worked on grouping, flash cards and counting backwards from 70. It is more challenging for her than our reading review, yet, she keeps learning and remembering more and more. Her tutor said she will begin subtraction soon. Subtraction! I would never have imagined two months ago that she would be starting subtraction soon.  When I told her Dad, his reply was, “Wow!”

Week 10: Jan 29, 2021

Something happened this week that just shocked Vivienne and blessed us both! I was giving her a spelling test and asked her to spell ‘strict.’ She very quickly spelled it correctly on her white board. Her sister, Liana, just happened to be walking by at that moment. Liana is the same age as Vivienne; they are only 3 weeks apart. Liana was adopted from China at age two, while Vivienne was adopted at age 5 ½. They are great friends and play together so well, but, Liana does not have the learning struggles of her sister. She often excels in her schoolwork. So, when Liana walked by and heard Vivienne’s spelling word, she was surprised. She said, “Wow, I am not sure if I can spell ‘strict.’ Let me try.” And she took a paper and pencil and wrote ‘strickt’ and compared it to Vivienne’s, which was spelled correctly. When Liana saw Vivienne’s correct spelling she said, “Wow, Vivienne! You spelled it right. I had no idea how to spell it!” It was beautiful! Vivienne was just glowing! She was so pleased with herself! And she even took her white board again and demonstrated for Liana saying, “Watch, Liana. This is how you spell ‘strict’…s-t-r-i-c-t … there is no ‘k.’ 

It was an important event! A confidence-boosting event! And I thank God for how all of this is truly life-changing for Vivienne! She is not just learning to read and spell and do math, she is becoming more confident! In fact, her Edublox Math tutor had her begin ‘column’ math, for instance, creating a grid and adding 54+13 or 44+21. And Vivienne is finding the correct answer. She works it out and very proudly tells me, “The answer is 67”… or “65!” And she is smiling when she says it! The girl who has hated numbers is giving answers in double digits. She is learning that she CAN do it! That is life-changing!

Week 11: Feb 5, 2021

We took Vivienne and her sister snow skiing for the first time this week. They loved it! And while we were eating our lunch at the lodge, Vivienne started reading some of the words on the signs around us! What a blessing to see her reading the words out there in the world around her! She missed a few days of school for our trip, and when we returned home and got back to school, she counted backwards with no mistakes, unlike over Christmas break. She said excitedly, “Mama, I took a break and still remember!”

Remarkably, Vivienne asked to do math first today. Not to get it over with, but because she was excited about doing it! The reason… she began ‘subtraction’ yesterday! Unbelievable! I have tried many creative methods in the past to help Vivienne understand math concepts, but none of my efforts were met with success. Now, with Edublox, I believe she is finally beginning to make connections and build a foundation that did not exist before. Now, she is able to make more sense of math. So her math teacher taught her about the Math Monster named ‘Minus.’ She told Vivienne to pretend she leaves sweets beside her bed at night, and as she sleeps… the Math Monster comes and eats the sweets. So if she left 2 sweets and the Math Monster only ate 1 sweet, how many sweets are there in the morning? And it was the first day ever that my sweet girl was able to do subtraction! 

Week 12: Feb 12, 2021

“Mama, I love math!” …Are you kidding me?!? I cannot believe I heard that from my sweet Vivi! After all of these years! It is amazing! She is doing her addition and subtraction flash cards, counting up to 90 and backwards again, and putting numbers in a sequence, but what thrills her the most is column math! She is so excited to see those big double digit numbers that she is now able to add. And even more crazy to me is that her math tutor introduced carrying the 10 over in double digit addition. …And she not only gets it, but she loves it! The other day she did not want to stop doing examples of column math carrying the ten! Remarkable! She proudly keeps asking me, “Am I doing good in school?!” And I tell her, “You are doing amazing!!” In fact, her sister happened to walk in the room and saw Vivienne doing her math and exclaimed, “Vivi, you can carry?!?” She was so surprised, and she clapped her hands for her sister!

I am so thankful. Truly grateful. I thank Vivienne’s reading tutor for working with her every day and helping her make such beautiful progress in reading. I thank her math tutor for having the insight to know just how to reach Vivienne and unlock her brain’s potential to finally learn numbers. And I am humbled that God has heard and answered my prayers to help me help Vivienne.

Week 13: Feb 19, 2021

Today I was just talking to my husband about the health of a family member, and I mentioned they might be having issues with their kidneys. Vivienne surprised me when she said, “I know that word. That is one of my new words. Kidney. I think you spell it ‘k-i-d-e-y.” “Wow,” I told her, “That is close, but it is k-i-d-n-e-y.” She replied, “Oh yeah, I forgot the ‘n.’” And it hit me … she could engage in the conversation, now familiar with what a ‘kidney’ is, as the word meaning is taught along with the words in Edublox, and even be able to come so close to spelling it just by saying the letter names out loud. She could visualize it in her mind. That is such a long way from where we started a few months ago where the word ‘cup’ had to be sounded out slowly letter by letter on paper. I feel like there are so many things happening with her, like layer upon layer going deeper. She is not just learning to sound out a word, but she is learning to read it automatically, recall how to spell it, remember the meaning, and can then interact in a conversation with the word. Her world is getting bigger all the time!

I wrote that update yesterday, expecting to submit it as is … but then something happened that I just have to add: This morning both of my girls were snuggled beside me, and we were just talking. Then, out of the blue, Vivienne said, “Ask me to spell something.” I said, “Okay, spell ‘kidney.’” And she replied, “K-i-d-n-e-y.” I said, “Way to go, you got the ‘n’ this time!” And she shocked me when she answered, “Yeah, I was spelling it in my head last night when I was in bed.”… She was spelling in her head. I am speechless!

Week 14: Feb 26, 2021

There are so many changes happening with Vivienne, that sometimes I don’t even realize it until something just hits me. Like the other morning I asked both my girls, “What time is it?” And Vivienne replied, “It’s 11:41.” I wasn’t even surprised at first, until her sister said, “Vivienne, you have gotten really good at telling time!” And it hit me… a few months ago she couldn’t have done that. In fact, here is what I wrote about Vivienne before we began Edublox: “She was unable to express the time on a digital clock, for instance if it was 10:27, she would say 10,2,7.” Wow! So much growth in such a short time. I am grateful beyond words. And her tutor said she will begin reading Edublox stories soon, taking all of the words she has learned that have been put together in story form. I can’t wait!

And this week her favorite school activity was doing column math adding numbers to the 100’s with carrying, like 365+165. She loves it, and she is so happy to show off what she can finally do! I love it!
