Austyn now has email, in an attempt to bring meaning to reading, and spelling. He has been struggling with these subjects in life and really has little interest in them. To try and bring interest we set up for him to have a pen pal from Edmonton. At first he was sluggish with it, but it grew on him. His Dad also started to email him from his desk (in the other room) and he really had fun emailing him back.
I also tried to sign him up for Flat Travelers but haven't been accepted into the group still. It's been weeks! I may have to set this up with friends and just do it that way. If you don't know what Flat Travelers is, it's the homeschool version of Flat Stanley. HERE is the website, but again, they don't seem to be accepting new members.
