My son is in First Grade. OH MY GOODNESS MY SON IS IN FIRST GRADE!!! Although we are well into our third week of school it is just now hitting me that I have a First Grader. Where does the time go? We were working last night on homework and he had some sight words that he was working on. He has a hard time with sight words, because he likes to sound everything out. He was really struggling with the word "now". Which although is a sight word is also decodable. So I told him that ow says /ow/ like when you get hurt. We put a band aid next to it and now he knows now. :) Sometimes it is the little things that make a big impact.
