Laci's Grammar Lesson

Laci's reading is still coming along.  It's a slow process.  Sometimes I think she should be able to just read now.  But it takes time and it is a process.  She still gets the letters "b" and "d" confused.  But she must pay close attention in class and pick everything up that they teach.  Last night we had to stop often for her to review her grammar and spelling rules.  For example -

Silent letters - In "know", both the k and w are silent.  If there are two vowels in a word, the "e" at the end is silent.  

Long and short vowels.  - I always get confused between what a long and short vowel is.  She explained which is which when there is only one vowel in a word and when there are two vowels next to each other and what it is when there is an "e" at the end.  She loves talking about vowels and consonants. 

Sentences - She explained what a sentence was.  

I thought she was going to start defining nouns and verbs.  When that starts happening, I going to need to brush up on what all those things are - nouns, verbs, adverbs, pronouns, etc.!
